On Our Peaceful Family:

We share everything that has worked for us, what is working for us, and what did not work. Plus what we are learning about marriage, parenting, family, and life with you.

You might be asking, “why are you two passionate about helping newlyweds adjust to married life?”

Because:

Great marriages and families that are built and nurtured on strong foundations will positively impact and make the world a better place.

Marriage is not easy. However, with commitment and hard work from both couples, it can be fun, exciting, and worth it.

As newlyweds, our first year of marriage was not a walk in the park.

We had some hard moments and struggled with many of the issues newlyweds face.

Such as:

» Difficulty communicating with each other.

» Job losses.

» Dealing with new behavior discoveries.

» Being overwhelmed from adjusting to each other and married life.

» Emergency situations.

» Arguing and fighting about money.

» Doubting if we married the right person.

» Who was going to do the chores after a long day at work

» And much more.

We also fought about some of the dumbest things like where to keep the shoes, which TV show to watch etc.

We knew that divorce was not an option we wanted to pursue so we had a lengthy talk one night and realized that:

Even though we were working to build a great marriage, our efforts were against each other.

Simply because we were not on the same page. We also discovered that learning how to communicate effectively was the missing piece in our marriage.

Men and women communicate differently.

Once we discovered that men and women communicate differently, we were able to resolve most of the issues we had by addressing them together.

We used our conflicts, struggles, problems, and hard moments to build a strong foundation for our marriage. Because of the success we have had, we created this website.

To provide you with actionable and practical tips that will help you build a strong foundation for the happy, healthy, and fulfilling marriage you desire.

By learning from our experiences, and those of the great couples we interview on our podcast, you will learn the lessons married couples have learned the hard way to save you going through the same pain.

Our First Year struggles helped us to build a strong foundation for the healthy and happy marriage we dreamed about before saying “I Do.”

Today, we are more than happy with each other, our marriage, and our family.

And we want to help you and your spouse to also have the marriage you both dream of. You can find our best-selling marriage books here.

Having a mutually happy marriage with equality and living a peaceful lifestyle has played a huge role in our marriage.
