Save your marriage. Drink coffee.


A lot of guys, myself included, don’t converse as much with our wives as they would like.

Four shots of espresso works for me. It loosens up my tongue. I get excited about whatever subject. I remember things about my day that previously I had forgotten.

I want to the thank the Great God Who Made Coffee. (Honestly, I don’t know why that’s not included in the list of God’s names in the books of theology. If were writing those books, I would include it!).

There are a few things that guys and girls want different out of marriage, that come unnatural. Guys want respect from their wives, who know us better. Girls want conversation, and we have the lexicon of a tree stump. The challenge of marriage is to do the unnatural thing and GIVE to your partner.

  1. LOL! Well said. I like how four shots of espresso help you to talk to your wife. My husband is a binge talker. Most of the time you have to pry words out of him, but every now and than he gets on a roll and I’m ready too pull his batteries out.

  2. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ The God who made coffee. I can just hear that prayer circle πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. Unnatural things and give to partner. Superb! It’s a big challenge everyone faces presently. πŸ™‚
    Never thought about coffee….

  4. “… we have the lexicon of a tree stump” … Good post, but I hate to paint all husbands with the same brush. But yes, caffeine does seem to loosen the tongue.

  5. Monks through the ages would agree (minus the marriage part). I laughed aloud when I read “the lexicon of a stump.” Thanks πŸ™‚

  6. This blog is hilarious. I love the motivational incentive. Coffee! Honestly, creativity is a great way to incite conversation. Kudos to you and May God richly bless your marriage.

  7. My husband and I almost talk for a living! Lol!
    At home we can hardly get two words out without getting interrupted by our kids. 😊

    Stop on by my blog:

    If anyone is interested in being inspired through God’s Word to make their lives and marriage better, I will love to see you there!
