Sometimes it may seem as though your wife, husband or partner are part or your team, and sometimes it feels as though you are moving in opposite directions.
It is also true that at the centre of many challenges at home are the finances. However, by discussing financial matters pro-actively, and not waiting until frustration levels are high, greater communication effectiveness can be achieved. Through proactive communication and planning enjoyable partnerships can be created at home.
As with other relationships, acknowledging and embracing the differences between husband and wife, and partners, is vital. This means you explore each others goals, dreams, values and purpose.
With this in mind, you can explore how you can support each other in the achievement of these goals and dreams, without trying to convince the other person that only your goals are the worthwhile goals, realistic goals, or sensible goals.
