“Clarity comes from action, not thought.” —Marie Forleo

There are many words you use in your marriage to convey a message or connection you have with your spouse.

These words are used here on the ONE Extraordinary Marriage Show.

You read them in marriage books.

They come up in conversations with friends.

These words work their way into conversation like this…

  • Women need love, men need respect.
  • Couples should go on date nights.
  • I want to feel appreciated.
  • If only my spouse would help out around here.
  • Why don’t you desire me?

All of these words mean different things to different people.

Which means that when you are using different definitions you can find yourselves in a place of:

  • Confusion.
  • Conflict.
  • Disconnect.

Why you may ask?

You assume your spouse is like you and understands what a particular word means to you.

It doesn’t matter how long you have been together, there is an assumption that your spouse knows you inside and out.

Unfortunately, they don’t.

And it doesn’t matter if you’ve been married for eons and then some.

Assumptions and busyness are a recipe for disaster.

In this week’s show Tony and Alisa talk about the challenges you face with your communication when words are not crystal clear and the seven words that will help you clear up the confusion.
