Don’t Let Homeschooling Ruin Your Marriage

how homeschooling affects marriageHomeschooling often puts a strain on marriage. Join Alan and Susan Evans as they talk about how to keep marriage a priority during the homeschool years. It’s so easy to let homeschooling take over your life, as a homeschool mom. Because we pour our lives into homeschooling, we often feel joy about what we accomplish in that area. Don’t let homeschooling take your eyes off your marriage. Maintaining a connection with your spouse does not come naturally if you don’t nurture it. Marriage is a topic that both Alan and Susan feel strongly about, and their refreshing honesty will help you to envision how your marriage is supposed to be.

Here is the replay, for those of you who missed it: (We had audio difficulties during the last two minutes.)

Here is an outline of what we covered:

  • How homeschooling can take over the life of a homeschool mom so that marriage goes on the back burner by accident
  • Your first love and most joy — (aside from God) should be your husband
  • How to prioritize your relationship with your spouse
  • What the wife can do if her husband is against homeschooling
  • The perspective of the man with regards to homeschooling
  • Many marriages end over petty disagreements that become annoying and drag out to the point where one of the spouses gives up
  • How to have conversations with your husband that are not always about homeschooling
  • How finances affect homeschooling
  • Don’t exhaust yourself with homeschooling. How to be joyful when your husband comes home rather than be haggard
  • You married your husband because he was going the direction you wanted to go. As a wife, if you ask God to give you his heart, then you will have more oneness in your marriage.
