Late night comedians probably make more jokes about marriage than any other topic. Yet that’s predictable, because habitually we joke about those aspects of life we don’t understand and have difficulty coping with–including death and taxes.
That’s why I hosted Stephanie Lacy, LCSW, LMFT–a Licensed Marriage/Family Therapist–in “The Communication Corner,” my weekly hour-long interview program on WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau.” The program airs Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. ET, and Thursdays at 6:00 a.m., streaming live online at http://tinyurl.com/ykvanpm
Stephanie addressed a number of vital topics, including these:
–Reshaping our unrealistic, fairy-tale level expectations about marriage
–How couples should truly listen to each other
–Putting aside our technology devices when they block interpersonal relations
–Adjusting to the changes you and your marriage partners will experience every decade
–Getting through the “empty nest” shock
–Should you tell your mate everything?
–Forgiveness as a process, not a one-time event
–After losing a spouse through death or divorce, how much time should elapse before dating again?
In addition to recommending some beneficial books during the broadcast, Stephanie invites you to select other relationship books from this site:
ORDER THE AUDIO CD, “LISTEN TO THE SPOUSE IN YOUR HOUSE!”
During our interview, Stephanie and I discussed the need for patient, empathetic listening by husbands and wives. For additional marital listening guidelines, order the audio CD titled, “Listen to the Spouse in Your House!” You can read the description of this CD–produced by my wife Sandra and me–on my Web site, and place your order there:
Notice your format choice: You can order the CD or order the mp3 version online, a special advantage for international orders.
