When is a Man a Real Man

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 3, 2017

Posting about marriage is a little like taking a midnight swim in the Okefenokee swamp. You might not get bit, but you probably will. Guys always leave comments on these post and, most of which center around control. When I read words like “so I should let my wife do whatever she wants?” I think…

Protest Polka

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 12, 2017

Recently, my counselor friend loaned me a book about marriage relationships. Unlike most psychologists who are all about ‘fixing’ people, this author’s book is more about learning to ‘dance’ together instead of trying to fix each other. It’s called Hold Me Tight, written by Dr. Sue Johnson about 10 years ago. It’s been more than…

“Good Luck Jumping Over the Moon”

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 1, 2017

I like to think the cow’s loving wife was kind enough to wish him luck before he jumped over the moon. With that in mind, here’s a few other things that will (hopefully) make you smile . . . A husband is someone who, after taking the trash out, gives the impression he just cleaned…

The Marriage Roundabout

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 9, 2017

My counselor friend Kathy is one of the smartest people I know. Not just book smart, she’s street smart too. I was telling her how every married couple I know struggles with sex, money or extended family (parents, in-laws, siblings, cousins, etc.) She said those were manifestations of a problem but not the real problem….

“I Know”

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 26, 2017

I reconnected with an old friend recently and as we talked, I was totally distracted by something he kept doing. No matter what I said, his response was “I know.” I mean he hadn’t said it but two or three times before it started to really bother me. It was all I could do to…

Our Most Controversial Post: The Happy Wife Pledge

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 2, 2017

Of the 500+ posts we’ve written, none drew more comments and controversy than the “Happy Wife Pledge.” A lot of guys laugh at the phrase “happy wife, happy life” and even if it’s not always true, it’s useful. I believe men heavily influence the quality of their marriages. Rather than dive into all the negative…

Positive Disruption

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 13, 2016

Last week, I wrote about how we don’t often change unless we’re disrupted . . . unless something bad happens to upset our homeostasis. Sometimes, it works the other way. We’re ‘positively’ disrupted. We see someone who models a character trait we wish we had . . . so much so that we start trying…

Throwing Shade

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 3, 2016

The term ‘throwing shade’ has seeped into mainstream culture over the last 25 years. It means to “talk trash about a friend or acquaintance, to publicly denounce or disrespect.” For example, if I were to say in a terribly condescending voice, “Oh honey, I’m so glad you saved up to buy those glasses,” that’s blatant…

Marriage: ‘University’ or ‘Tech School’?

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 7, 2016

Where do you go to learn how to be a husband? To lead a marriage? How is it one of the biggest endeavors we undertake in life has no training and little help? We spend thousands of dollars and hours prepping for a wedding and almost nothing prepping for marriage. How many times have you…

The Wife of Wall Street

Posted by Regi Campbell on February 18, 2016

In his book The Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort tells about starting his career as a stockbroker on October 19, 1987. That was ‘Black Monday’ . . . the day the Dow fell 508 points and lost 22.61% of its value. It was the largest single-day decline in stock market history. In the real…
