Rank #1: Episode 118 - The Four Seasons of Marriage - Part I.
Why is marital paradise lost? Why do couples feel they have left Eden and live in a jungle of sorts? Since Scripture indicates couples will have trouble in this life why are husbands and wives unprepared? The answer is simple: they do not anticipate and accept the four seasons. In one way or another all couples will go through the four seasons. Those who go through them without defeat do so because they anticipate and accept the process. Join Emerson and Jonathan for Part I of this series.

Rank #2: My Husband is Emotionally Lacking.
On the Show Today: Her husband is emotionally unavailable, and she feels trapped after starting a family at a young age. Stu and Lisa answer some of her questions. Email Highlights for today: My husband and I are 26 years old. We have been together for 9 years (married for 5). I was raised in a single mom household with a strict mother who worked 3 jobs so I stood home and babysat my sister (4 years younger than me.) I was never allowed to have friends over or hang out with friends...My mother did everything she could to make sure we were cared for but because she worked so hard I didn’t have much of a personal life. My husband was the opposite. He was from a married parent home, dad worked mom stood home. They gave him all the freedom in the world to do as he pleased but they are a very reserved family. No emotions, no affection...I feel like personally, I felt trapped. I went from not being able to do anything as a teenager to being tied down by the family life with kids and a husband. I felt, and sometimes still feel like, I was never able to find myself and who I am as a person which is why I started to grow in my faith and take the journey with the Lord...But my husband is the “problem” he is an AMAZINNGGGG husband!! He helps out more than I could imagine at home. He does dishes, does laundry, sweeps, mops, makes beds, works 40 hours a week, cooks meals when I don’t have the strength, takes the kids to and forth but he lacks emotionally. I am a stay at home mom. When I bring up my feelings to other women, especially my own mom, she claims I am being a “brat” or a “baby” and whining about nothing, he is great and it's me who has the problem. I have now learned to keep my mouth shut but it is affecting our marriage...my husband is an amazing provider and partner in our home but he lacks in affection, attention and following the lord. Stu and Lisa, please help me. I feel like I have exhausted every angle from praying for us both, sending him little articles or highlights of the articles (neither which he will read), dropping hints, approaching conversations the right way, using I statements vs making it about him, I praise him, I encourage him, I lift him up but I see none of that in return. I overfill his love tank and my children’s while mine is running on empty. Links Acts 2:8 Galatians 6:9 Matthew 13:1-23 Emotionally Distant Husbands: Does your husband Stink at Romance? Mine Too!

Rank #1: 3 Things To Talk About Every Day.
Talking to each other seems like a pretty obvious topic, right? But, how many times have I asked Caleb, about a couple we’re working with, “Do they not talk???”This is a really fundamental issue that we see in most marriages we help. Folks are simply not having the basic day-to-day conversations they need to, and as a result, there are misunderstandings, miscommunications, and then conflict! If we can just make sure we talk about these essential subjects, we can save ourselves a whole lot of pain!One of Caleb and my earliest fights, when we were dating, was just because we hadn’t clearly communicated our expectations and plans. And let me tell you, it was a good fight...or bad fight, depending on how you phrase it! One of the things we’ve learned to do over the years which saves us a ton of grief is just to talk frequently about what’s going on.This talking is not always profound – but just about what’s happening, who’s going where, and what our expectations are around that. It’s really just collaborating about the busyness of life.This is where we jump into the research because reduced communication is actually associated with troubled marriages.Reduced Communication Frequency is Associated with Troubled MarriagesOne study we looked at found that greatly reduced the quantity of communication in a marital relationship is associated with lowered marital satisfaction.The researchers asked the question, “Can reduced communication serve as a reliable marker to identify marriages which are in trouble?”[i] The study looked at 26 individuals who reported low to moderate marriage satisfaction as well as 93 divorced individuals. They then measured the amount and topic of communication each individual participated in within their marriage or past marriage.They found that the data from divorced individuals is very similar to that of married individuals who are less satisfied with their marriages. "The results suggest that less satisfied married individuals’ and divorced individuals’ reports … are very similar. Given these results, reduced communication in a marriage should be considered a probable marker variable indicating a marriage under stress.”[ii]The point here is that it’s really important to the long term viability of your marriage to make sure that you are talking to each other frequently. It’s also more than just a viability issue though: it actually will improve the quality of your marriage too.It’s one thing to make a marriage last. It’s another to make it enjoyable!More Frequent Conversation is Associated with Higher Marital QualityAnother study looked at nearly 400 married people to understand the connection between the frequency of conversation and marital quality. They measured four relationship characteristics to determine marital quality: liking, satisfaction, commitment, and trust. Those are all key ingredients in a happy marriage.Not surprisingly they found that the more frequently couples communicated, the greater the quality of their marriage.[iii]So, we want YOU to really be thinking about growing the frequency of your communicating in order to make your marriage last and to make it more enjoyable!There are three parts to this though: First, you have to be communicating Then, you need to look at HOW you’re communicating Finally, we’ll tell you WHAT you need to be communicating about.The Five Universal Rules of Social CommunicationSo, how should we communicate? A study from 2004 suggests that while the frequency of conversation is important, how couples go about these conversations is even more important.[iv]It turns out that quality of communication, as measured by the five universal rules of social communication (see below), was also positively related with all four measure of marital quality (liking, satisfaction, commitment, and trust).The five universal rules of communication are: One should be polite One should try to make it a pleasant encounter
Rank #2: How Much Foreplay Does Your Wife Really Need?.
We are going to look at foreplay today. But before we do, please be reminded that emotional factors are a much stronger determinant of sexual satisfaction and orgasm frequency than biological or practical factors like sexual frequency and lack of foreplay. So make sure the emotional connection gets most of your focus, and then consider what we’re thinking about in this episode!Questions around foreplay and orgasm are fairly common in marriages. How much foreplay does my wife need to reliably reach orgasm? How much time should I expect my husband to devote to foreplay each time we have sex?Today we’ll be looking at some of these factors that affect foreplay, orgasm frequency and sexual satisfaction overall, so if your sex life isn’t all you’d like it to be, this is definitely worth your time. But let’s just briefly reiterate the disclaimer above. A study from 1993[i] showed what we probably all know already: individual relationship variables like closeness, intimacy, marital satisfaction etc. predict female sexual satisfaction over and above biological and practical issues like sexual frequency and length of foreplay. We’ve seen this fact reflected numerous times in the research for this podcast, and even produced a whole episode on why emotional intimacy is the key to great sex.So we’re going to talk about these things, but if you want to improve your sex life, you’ll get the most benefit from improving your emotional connection to one another.Foreplay and OrgasmDuration of ForeplayWhat’s interesting about this research is that there are some general observations, but the research also really seems to highlight the fact that everyone is unique. There’s no recipe for orgasm: it’s more like a journey of discovery that a couple needs to tackle together and explore together. It requires gentleness and collaboration and curiosity.So, for example, a couple studies we found indicate that increased time spent in foreplay is often linked to increased probability of orgasm[ii][iii].However, if you are experiencing some kind of sexual dysfunction then there may be no benefit to spending more time in foreplay: A study by Huey et al[iv] examined 619 women who reported sexual dysfunction and found no support for a link between length of foreplay and female orgasmic response.Further, the duration of foreplay may differently affect women depending on how regularly they already achieve orgasm during sex. “Extending foreplay and intromission (penetration) might enable some women who were already orgasmic to have more frequent orgasms than they would under shorter periods of stimulation.[v]”For women who already achieve orgasm at least some of the time, increasing foreplay can make orgasm even more regular. However, for women who rarely or never achieve orgasm, duration of foreplay appears to have little effect. This again suggests that foreplay is not the main issue in sexual satisfaction and orgasm: if you already have the emotional connection then foreplay can help, but if you don't have that connection then foreplay isn't an adequate replacement in itself.Assuming you’ve got the emotional connection thing nailed, then is there an ideal amount of time to spend in foreplay? Unfortunately it’s not that simple. There are high levels of variability between women. We do not mean to imply promiscuity, but just managing expectations about one’s own personal experience. Some women achieve orgasm with little or no foreplay and some remain inorgasmic after twenty minutes or more of foreplay[vi].There is also high variability in desired levels of foreplay: when given a questionnaire about their ideal foreplay length, different men and women both reported anywhere from "less than five minutes" to "more than thirty minutes"[vii]. So there’s a huge range in what both men and women prefer.Nature of ForeplayNow the nature of foreplay also is worth considering in addition to the duration of foreplay.

Rank #2: UR 208: Disappointed, Difficult, or Destructive Marriage? — Leslie Vernick.
On this week's episode of The Undone Redone Podcast, Tray and Melody sit down with author and counselor Leslie Vernick. Leslie is the author of seven books, including the best selling, The Emotionally Destructive Relationship and her most recent book, The Emotionally Destructive Marriage. She speaks with Tray and Melody about the difference between a disappointing relationship and a destructive relationship, and what we as spouses can do when we find ourselves in either type. Our listeners can learn more about Leslie and her work by going to her website: https://leslievernick.com/ Quotes: "When you give another person the power to define you, then you also give them the power to control you." "In some marriages, trying harder does not engender a reciprocal response. It has the opposite effect. It feeds the fantasy that the sole purpose of your life is to serve your husband, make him happy, and meet his every need." "Biblically loving your husband doesn’t require you to prop him up in order to enable him to continue to hurt you."
