Are you tired of arguing with your spouse and getting nowhere? Feeling like you’re never on the same page?

If you and your spouse have different marital styles, those are going to be at the root of ALL your disagreements. Never heard of marital styles? Perfect! Then let’s get to work. I want to teach you how understanding your marital styles can strengthen your marriage and prevent unnecessary conflict.

I’m sharing the seven areas that you can discuss with your spouse to help you understand your underlying values and improve your communication.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The guiding principles that will help you decide which marital style suits you best
  • Seven things you should discuss with your spouse right now
  • The three types of marriage
  • How to understand and confront the underlying theme of all your disagreements
  • How to level up with your spouse

Communicating isn’t always easy. In fact, it can be one of the biggest challenges in marriage. But if you take the principles from today’s episode and put them to work in your own relationship, you’ll be able to communicate more efficiently and in a way that allows you both to feel heard and supported.

See you all here next week.




“If you've never managed to agree on a marital style you both prefer, then it's going to be the basis for every argument that you have.”

“You need to talk to your spouse. What do you value? Togetherness or separateness?”

“Marriage is hills and valleys; ups and downs.”

“The values are what makes the marriage.”
