Money can be mind-boggling. We might have learned things from our parents that we later have to un-learn in order to manage finances with our spouse! Chief Financial Mom Dr. Mary Bell Carlson joined our Momversation to help us all understand things a little more clearly and personally because, after all, monetary decisions are based on our individual values.
Momivate declares that Moms R.A.I.S.E. U.P. Society -- an acronym that is jam-packed with the multi-faceted elements of motherhood! The R in this acronym is for Relationships -- and this Momversation is specifically about our Relationship with our Husband.
Our guest, Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife, is a sex therapist in Chicago, Illinois. She earned her doctorate from Boston College. She and her husband have three children. Her website offers various classes! The one she invites our audience to consider purchasing is called The Art of Desire.
Some of the questions discussed:
1. Sexuality in some homes has been taboo to talk about. How can we move past that?
2. Sometimes we put up a barrier of resentment between our spouse and ourselves. What can we do to work through that?
3. Some women may come into a relationship where their sexuality was damaged beforehand. What steps can a wife take to open up that honesty and be trusting of her spouse with something like that?
4. Let's talk about conflict. It's kind of scary to bring up something that is hard to talk about because you know it's going to ignite some kind of emotion. How can we manage that?
