    What Does A Wife Want?

    What Does A Wife Want?

    Last week, Heath told you What A Man Wants! This week, Tracy is telling you What A Wife Wants!

    Tracy breaks it down to 5 main points: 
    Talk To Me - I need conversation. Open your mouth. "Was the dinner good? Do I look good today?" Converse with your significant other; force yourself if you have to. I Need Some Affection - What really does it for her. What are her love languages. Acts of Service are Tracy's (Gas in the car, Dishes done, Flowers) Show her the love.Be Open And Honest - No Trust, No Peace. Women don't want a liar, share what's going on.Understanding & Respect -  Getting to know her. She is doing a lot. Working, teaching, cooking, she’d tired. Make her bed, Spray lavender on pillow. Empathize, don’t criticize.Support - Your wife needs support both financially and emotionally. How are you contributing to the relationship? Give her a break sometimes; pick up the baby, change a diaper, pour her a bubble bath, take her to see her family.Download our Legacy Living Worksheet HERE!

    is it Worth Spending on the Wedding?

    is it Worth Spending on the Wedding?

    Is There Too Much Emphasis on the Wedding?

    Tracy and I explore people's reasons not to have a wedding, especially for budget newlyweds when the marriage is SO much more important than the wedding itself.
    People delay marriage unnecessarily and end up asking themselves, is it worth spending money on a wedding? Is it worth it to have a wedding? Are weddings overrated? Should we have a small wedding? Since we are budget newlyweds, should we have a budget wedding? Some of the research we did for this article shows that small weddings are best for longevity in marriage.
    We were surprised when we saw this and maybe that means there are reasons to elope so you don't have to say, I spent too much on my wedding. We outline several solid alternatives for getting married sooner, not putting so much emphasis on the perfect wedding and maybe revisiting it down the road.

    Legacy Living Worksheet here: https://bit.ly/legacylivingworksheet

    Thanks for listening!
    We’ve got 10 things we wish we knew before we got married.
     Why?
     How you will feel after you hear this... 
    1. Marriage is a marathon, not a sprint. 
    2. Marriage success comes from repetition. You practice being married every day. Am I practicing marriage or practicing divorce dating 
    3. Deprioritizing everything over your marriage. Work kids family 
    4. Always act like you are 35 - lots of people you can model. Ask people that have experience. Take their best practices and use them. Keep that young energy. Date night flirting 
    5. Marriage is about the other person and it’s a daily dying of self. It’s a daily practice of working the selfish out. When that happens you will submit to one another. 
    6. Plan to be married forever. Don’t stay if there is abuse, mental physical 
    7. Never sacrifice your spouse's feelings for the benefit of your family or others. Make your partner feel protected and that you have their back

     8. Celebrate your partner's differences. Yin Yang. Don’t pick at them recognize they are enhancing your weakness 
    9. Do put off doing don’t nice things. Continually the love bank. Don’t expect anything back 
    10. The magic happens in the failures

Informative!

As a man in my 20s who is getting married soon, there’s a lot of gems in here! I’m definitely taking some notes.

Just subscribe already! No need to read reviews

This young wise couple is truly amazing! They are fun, lighthearted, witty, intelligent, all while providing a Christian point of view. I appreciate them and their honesty and so will you! Although they didn’t choose to attend the correct HBCU lol (FAMU is the best of course) I still love them whole heartedly! I am recently married and enjoy listening to them and gaining nuggets!
