The 3 mistakes too many men make in relationships

Podcast - The Daily Edge

On today’s episode of God, Money & Purpose, Vivian takes the gloves off and hits Raul with the three mistakes that men commonly make in relationships. Instead of getting defensive, men should take this opportunity to get feedback from life, and grow from it.

Mistake 1: Confusing intimacy with quality time. Raul admits that when he and Vivian are snuggled together on the couch watching a horror movie, he views it as an intimate experience. But what he doesn’t realize is that Vivian isn’t taking any of that as intimate, and instead views it as just another activity. Often, Raul will be physically present with Vivian in a romantic setting, but be checking his phone every two minutes. To be truly intimate, go beyond physical intimacy and pay full attention to each other.

Mistake 2: Not understanding your partner’s love language. The Five Love Languages is a concept from Gary Chapman in his book of the same title. Each of us speak to each other in one of those languages, and not interpreting what your partner is saying to you is a mistake couples make in a relationship. Communicate with each other what your specific love language is so your partner can be attuned to it.

Mistake 3: Never changing. Raul and Vivian have been together for over 20 years. What worked for them 20 years ago isn’t necessarily going to work now. You have to be willing to go beyond your comfort zone to not be the partner you are now, but to continually evolve and become the partner you need to be.

What Does Certainty Mean in a Marriage?

On this episode of God, Money & Purpose, Raul and Vivian Villacis reflect on what certainty means. As Raul always says, certainty is not knowing the answers, it’s knowing you’ll do whatever it takes to get them. Many businessmen have certainty in their business, but no clue to have certainty at home. Their wives end up resenting them for spending all that time in the office and not spending time with them and being emotionally present when they are together
Being able to make intelligent decisions with money, rather than be impulsive, or ignore purchases that “don’t count” means you have that emotional fitness.

When you have two people who mix their finances, it can quickly create tension if you aren’t on the same page about money, or don’t know where the money is going at the end of the month.
