Roles and Responsibilities In Your Marriage – #031

Welcome!  We sometimes talk about “Team Jacobus,” but we really are a team, as any marriage should be.  A team is stronger when relying on each other, standing shoulder to shoulder to face whatever comes.  We’ve been working in our book and decided today to talk about an important topic in marriage:  Roles and Responsibilities.  Essentially, we are discussing how you function together to accomplish things in your household and your marriage.

Here is the question:  What are the strengths you bring to the marriage regarding roles and responsibilities?contact-team

We want to model this for you by listing some things that we respect about each other’s strengths:

  • Jim’s strengths:  (from Christie)
    • Makes decisions quickly
    • Uses data and takes action
    • Very handy around the house
    • A fearless learner who explores and finds out more
  • Christie’s strengths:  (from Jim)
    • Cautious about decision-making
    • Displays nursing abilities
    • Is a great bargain hunter

Your assignment is to write down 3-4 things you admire and respect about each other.  Then have the discussion and share them with each other.

As a result of this conversation, you will be able to categorize tasks and decide what will be hired out.  You will be an encouragement to each other and become strategic about running your household as a team.  It’s a win-win, so give it a try!  Thanks for joining us!
