How to Get Your Partner On Board With Modern Marriage

Blog · Your Family · Your Relationships


If you want to take Modern Marriage but your partner is skeptical (or you’re nervous to talk to them), I want to give you a few tips to get your partner excited to take Modern Marriage with you.

  1. Be very clear about your desire to take this program.  Most women will downplay how much they want to do something for fear of “asking for too much” or “being too needy”, so they will throw something randomly into a conversation right before bed or while you’re cleaning the kitchen.  Often because of your flippant tone, your partner doesn’t get how much something means to you, or how important it is, so they dismiss it, ignore you or push off the conversation to later.

Do this instead: Tell your partner you want to have an important conversation with them, and ask them when would be a good time.  Sit down at the table or on the couch and make eye contact.  Really own that you want this with your presence, and share how important this is to you.

You could say simply “I love you so much, and I want to have a really amazing marriage.  I’ve noticed that BOTH of us (own your role) have created some dynamics that aren’t healthy and I’d love to take this course to guide us through it.”  Then just listen to their response and STAY CALM.  It’s normal to have resistance.  Just ask them to continue hearing you out and answer all their questions.

  1. Have him come to their own decision.  Just send them to ModernMarriage.us and say, “Hey babe! This looks great, want to do this together?  Will you read through this whole page before dinner tonight and we can talk about it after the kids go to sleep?”  Be direct and clear, and then see what happens. If he’s not a yes, you can sign up for our orientation tonight! Just click here to save your spot for free.
  2. Have him hear from Jonathan. Jonathan wrote this note for men who are on the fence, you can send him to this page here. You can also both come to our Modern Marriage Orientation tonight!
