In this episode of the Beyond Your Wedding Day Podcast,we  begin our discussion on the book Stripped Down by Tony and Alisa DiLorenzo from oneextraordinarymarriage.com. We discuss chapter 1 and chapter 2 entitled “From the Top Down.”

***We apologize for Mandy’s audio quality.  Not sure what happened, but we’ll have it fixed by next episode!

Mike and Mandy discuss the many things going on in our lives that we have started to help improve our marriage.

We started the Thrive90 Fitness Program created by Dustin Riechmann (Check out our interview with Dustin and his wife, Bethany) and Tony DiLorenzo.

We then discussed our 90 Days of Sex Challenge.  It should be interesting!

-6 types of intimacy:

1) Emotional Intimacy

2) Intellectual Intimacy

3) Spiritual Intimacy

4) Recreational Intimacy

5) Financial Intimacy

6) Physical Intimacy

-You have to keep your priorities straight if you are to have a successful marriage

-it’s easy for other things to creep in between your relationship: work, kids, etc.

-Here’s how your priorities should be listed:

1) God

2) Spouse

3) Family (kids, extended family, etc)

4) Work

5) Other Activities

-an example for Mike is volleyball (quit playing for 8 months of the year)

-Don’t get so caught up with a to-do list that your spouse or kids keep getting put off

-The best thing you can do for your kids is have a strong marriage!

-Be careful not to become so obsessed with a hobby that it takes over your life

 

I’d love to help you and your spouse or fiance get on the same page financially. Here’s how.
