    190. How to Communicate Your Expectations with Greg and Rachel Denning

    In today's episode, I'm chatting with my friends, Greg and Rachel Denning of Extraordinary Family Life about expectations in marriage and love. We quickly come to the conclusion that husbands don't get hints. All joking aside, unrealistic expectations are the breeding ground for lots of unnecessary disappointment and resentment.

    Our conversation covers how to start becoming aware of our expectations and their effects of our relationship, what to do instead and how to communicate so our partners don't have to guess what we are thinking.

    In honor of Valentine's Day, we are working together to bring you a very special bundle which includes the Offensive Playbook Challenge for husbands together with Greg's Be the Man Workshop for one low price. You can check out that deal here: https://offensiveplaybookchallenge.com.
