Isn't it a great feeling when you're united as a couple around important decisions? It really doesn't matter if the decision is big or small — we feel connected when we're on the same page.

But, if you're anything like us, you've probably run into those moments when decision-making seems to create disconnection.

And let's be honest. Disconnection stinks.

Over the past 21 years of our marriage, making decisions together has proven to be a lot tougher than we thought it might be. Even the small things can become big things in the midst of our blended family dynamics.

Countless times, we've felt stuck…

…but we've also discovered some simple ways to get UN-stuck.

In this episode, we're exploring the good, the bad, and the ugly about decision-making in a blended family. We'll share some do's and don'ts along with some stories about our own journey and some of the couples we've supported.

Every blended couple needs a strategy for decision-making that creates connection so they can avoid confusion, pain and division.

So, go ahead and hop into the conversation and we'll meet you there!

You'll Discover:

  • The underlying tension that creates discomfort and disconnection when decisions need to be made
  • Practical tips for making united decisions - and minimizing the Trapped Teammate and Stranded Stranger dynamic
