When I was in real estate I remember some of the people we worked with saying “homes aren’t built like they used to.” At one point new homes and new neighborhoods seemed to pop up over night. The homes and subdivisions all looked great, but what many of our contractors discovered was they weren’t built as well as homes built years ago.
Have you been gearing up for the big day? Hopefully you didn’t forget what “big day” I’m talking about. If you forgot, let this be your reminder. Today is Valentine’s Day! It is the day you get the opportunity to do something special for your marriage, for your wife, for that one special person in your life.
Last week I was invited to chat with Hall of Fame NBA Player Bill Walton and is his son, NBA Champion Luke Walton. Bill and Luke are the only father and son combination in NBA history to both win multiple NBA Championships.
We talked about basketball, John Wooden, and their father-son relationship. But we also talked about love, relationships, and how to make your wife happy! Yes, Luke and Bill Walton are schooling us in the love department.
Do you want to start a heated debate? Bringing up the topic of putting your spouse before your kids can do just that. No matter which side of the fence people are on, they seem to defend their stance fiercely. If you read my posts, then you know I believe your spouse comes before kids.
“Make this your best year ever” is a phrase you hear a lot at the end of December and throughout January. The beginning of the year is full of hope, optimism, and excitement for all areas of your life. It’s fun to envision having a better marriage, better finances, better career, and just better life overall.
I usually don’t go all “this is going to be my best year ever!” But this year is different, I really believe this is going to be my best year ever, or at a minimum one of my best year’s ever!
One of the biggest challenges in marriage is being on the same page with your spouse. Many couples have asked how to get on the same page with your spouse.
When two different people, from two different backgrounds, usually with two different ways of doing things come together, be on the same page is no easy task. After 12 years of marriage my wife and I have had some success and big failures in this area, but we’ve finally found a way to consistently do it.
Tomorrow is my wife’s birthday. She’ll be turning 23. I’m looking forward to spending some quality (alone) time with her, and celebrating her life, but honestly I don’t really know what to do. I am notoriously bad when it comes to this type of stuff. Birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, and holidays get me just about every time.

In marriage you go through different seasons and stages. I refer to them as The 7 Rings of Marriage™. My wife and I have worn all 7 rings. And all of them aren’t pretty, some are down right ugly, nasty, and just difficult. But this season, this “ring of marriage” that we are wearing now is one of the best. Without a doubt, I can say (loudly) that I am a happy husband!
I recently wrote an article about rubber wedding rings after seeing an NFL player wearing one on HBO’s show Hard Knocks. The company which sells the wedding rings somehow discovered my article, contacted me, and offered to send me some rings.
