Why Won't God Answer Prayers for My Marriage - Leighann McCoy and Dr. Joe Beam

You've prayed. Others have prayed with you...for you. Your children pour out their hearts. Yet, your marriage continues to spiral downward. Someone on TV tells you that if only you have enough faith, God will do whatever you ask. (Then s/he asks you for a check to prove your faith...) Well-meaning friends tell you that God is faithful if only you will continue to be...that He will bring about healing for your marriage...and that you should not doubt. However, time passes, your prayers...


My Spouse Says I'm Controlling - The Dr. Joe Show

Are you controlling? Really? Or is your spouse trying to manipulate you? S/he claims you're controlling because you're an obstacle to him or her doing whatever they wish. Maybe there's a combination. You have been controlling and now your spouse is using that to manipulate you into inaction by accusing you of being controlling now. If you are controlling, eventually that behavior will destroy your marriage. If you're being manipulated, backing off on a matter could make a clear path for...


Controlling and Dominant Spouses - The Dr. Joe Show

No one wants to be treated as a child...especially by the person that is supposed to be our partner...our equal...our mate. We don't appreciate being told what to think, how to act, what to feel, or what to believe. Each of us craves being accepted and appreciated for who we we are. When we were children, we understood the need for an authority figure to guide us, teach us, and, sometimes, to command us. But we aren't children and we don't want our husbands or wives telling us...


What's On Your Mind About Love? - The Dr. Joe Show

Love. Lots of people think they know what it is...until they realize that they don't. Think of the hit songs from your lifetime. How many were about wanting to be loved, enjoying amazing love, or longing for lost love? Why those topics? Because most adults fit into one of those three categories. Some wonder where their lover may come from...if at all. Others hope the one they secretly love will finally come to realize it and respond with passion. Many bask in the deep emotions of shared...

Dr. Joe Answers Your Questions - The Dr. Joe Show

The 3 Phases of Limerence (Being Madly in Love) - The Dr. Joe Show

When Dr. Tennov introduced the concept in the 1970s, it was mostly rejected. We encounter marriage counselors who have never heard of it. But the research is solid. PhD's including anthropologists and biologists and more study it, even having brain scans that teach us much about it. It's called limerence. It is a state of being "madly in love' to the point that it becomes obsessive and affects the way a person feels, acts, and thinks. It is powerful. It can be beautiful. It often is...


Know-How You Can Use to Help Troubled Marriages - The Dr. Joe Show

No, it won't make you a counselor or therapist. It will help you know practical things to do or say that can offer...

Can a Marriage Recover from an Affair? YES, It Can.

There are a ton of "what ifs" that go through someone's mind when their spouse is in love with someone else. What if the affair doesn't end?

When and How To Move On From a Marriage - The Dr. Joe Show

Can every troubled marriage be saved? We believe nearly all can. However, not all will. Sometimes one spouse does all s/he can to save the marriage. They learn, put into practice the right things, make right the things they did wrong, demonstrate remarkable love, patience, and...forgiveness. Yet, the other mate doesn't respond. Maybe it's another person. Maybe a different lifestyle they want to pursue. Is there a time when the spouse striving to save the marriage should stop trying and...
