Happy marriage - happy home

Family First VoiceAmerica™

Just click on the above link and listen in to my conversation with my husband! We will be talking about how to create a long-lasting, happy marriage through all the stages of life. With no signs of slowing in the divorce rate, it’s no wonder young people are jaded in their expectations about marriage. With TV reality shows focusing on trouble even before the wedding, it’s hard to be optimistic about the challenges couples will face, with careers, children, layoffs, vacations, where to live, what to eat, what to buy, or what bills to pay first. My guest this week on Family First is my husband John Rolfe. We have been sharing our lives for several decades and have found great riches in our relationship, no matter what stage we are in. Some years ago we wrote a book together called The Affirmations Book for Sharing to help couples to discuss any issue that can arise in a marriage. John is an outspoken advocate for the effort it takes for a couple to really build a life together which they truly enjoy, year after year, and day after day. John is a lawyer, artist, speaker, and writer and will share his insights about the keys to a happy, successful, lasting marriage.

The show airs live on the Voice America Net Talk Radio Network, Health and Wellness Channel, at the link above. Tune in Friday at 4 PM ET, and 1 PM PT, or any time on archive.

John Rolfe is a retired lawyer who is now pursuing his speaking, writing, and artistic careers. As an attorney he helped hundreds of entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and hundreds of families to plan their estates. A graduate of the Wharton School and University of Pennsylvania Law School, he married his college sweetheart and together they have a son and a daughter, now grown. They experienced two extremes of lifestyle – as a young suburban couple, both Philadelphia lawyers, and as homesteaders, rebuilding an old farmhouse and living off the land. He has always held his marriage commitment a high priority. John is author of the new book America’s First Entrepreneur, about his ancestor John Rolfe, who historians agree single-handedly saved the first successful English colony in America. He is also author with his wife of a book by their cat, Princess Buttercup The Cat’s Cross-Country Road Trip #3. John will share his keys to creating a happy, successful, long-lasting marriage.

Randy Rolfe's Take Home Tips: Deciding to spend your life together is one of the biggest decisions of your life, second only to your relationship with your Maker. Give it the time and attention it deserves. Learn about it, explore it, talk about it with your partner, work issues through as soon as they come up before you hit crisis-style emotions. Spend time weekly, several hours, walking, sitting, conversing together. Share at least one meal a day. Share eye contact, and skin contact. Have fun together and let nothing take precedence over your love!
