In this podcast episode Joel and Joy respond to seven main questions [see audio outline, starting times noted in brackets]:

  1. Do you have any good “rules” for communicating effectively when life gets busy and stressful? What about when one of you offends the other? [0:30]
  2. Is it true that men sometimes need space when they get home from a long day? Is this okay? What about if the wife works full time as well? [10:36]
  3. I have a husband who isn’t a strong leader or a spiritual leader. I am the stronger one but realize he needs to lead but won’t. How do I help him grow when he is content for me to lead in that way? [14:25]
  4. How do you relate to a wife who puts her father as the first man in her life? Her first love/respect relationship is with her father and she brings that into the marriage. Is this good or bad? (Pastor Cliff also offers his own insights as a father-in-law.) [22:36]
  5. What if you have been living like you are married with kids, but you’re not married. I am following Jesus, but he is not; I want to marry, but he does not, preferring to continue to live as we are. I struggle with this every day. Is it better to leave or stay? [31:54]
  6. I am married to a non-Christian alcoholic… I don’t know how to be a good wife to a bottle at night and a man in the morning. [39:01]
  7. How is trust renewed after unfaithfulness? [47:40]
