When you get married, you have all sorts of expectations about what your spouse will or won’t do.

First, there are all those lovely things they did when you were dating that you expect them to keep doing.

Then there are those things you assumed they would do, inherited beliefs from the household you grew up in.

And then there are the things you imagined they absolutely wouldn’t do.

There are many problems with these expectations in your marriage, but the biggest problem is that they are tearing your marriage apart.

Look, I’m not blaming you; I’m right there with you, and you know who else is?

Your spouse!

Yep, they also have expectations around what YOU will and won’t do.

With the holidays coming up and all of the expectations filling the air, this episode drops with excellent timing.

In this week’s episode about Creating Healthy Expectations, you will find out: 

  • what expectations are
  • the problem with unmet expectations
  • how to deal with your expectations so that you can create joy instead of resentment in your marriage this holiday season


I am a marriage coach helping women and couples turn their loveless & emotionless marriage into something better than they ever imagined possible. My process starts by looking within to understand how you got here, and from this place, we work together to figure out where you want to go. Then we do the work of making that your reality!

If you feel sad and completely powerless about your marriage’s state of affairs, then I’d love to chat with you about what is going on and what’s possible for you and your future. It’s never too late to re-create your best life. Schedule a free mini-session today, and let’s talk about how to get started.
