1 – The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me! Thank you for coming here and giving me your time. I am quite appreciative!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

Good Company does indeed make the journey seem shorter and I hope to become friends with you and that you will reach out to me as you deem fit. In the meantime, this is a place where I can share my life, my marriage, my adventures and mis-adventures, and keep track of who I am. This is the place I reflect on everything and by writing it down, it will ground me and force me to focus on each-and-every-word that is my life.

But to begin, I want you know….. This is something I actually asked for! YES, I initiated it! I ASKED FOR IT!

You may be wondering WHY would I do this Domestic Discipline thing. Or WHY would I welcome it. Encourage it. Hope for it. And expect it. And certainly want it.

start with why

So it was surprising to me too actually. That I would WANT this to be apart of my life and marriage. But the simple and the simple answer is: it is biblical.

I’ll go into more of that in another post. But now, I need to respect my husband’s wishes that I actually focus on work today. And I’ll be back soon.

Hugs,

Marie
Loving Discipline Life!

  1. Very new here my wife has came to me also. I’ve tried once or twice but never fully committed to the lifestyle. I have not given it a chance mainly because of misconceptions in my own mind. But I know this will save my marriage and I’m all in but have no idea where to start. Any advice would be so very appreciated. Thank you

    • Hi Virgil! Thanks for joining my journey….and it sounds like, yours too! While I wouldn’t consider myself an “expert” on this lifestyle, I do have a bit of advice that may very well help. The first thing I’d say is: just like there are no two people alike, there’s also no two marriages are alike, including those with Domestic Discipline or Dominant/submissive as part of it. So be flexible and take what you like and ignore what you don’t. The second thing I’d say is: take things slow and easy. Don’t overcomplicate things. “Rules” can be a big part of this lifestyle. She wants them. You need to enforce them. But the rules can be easy. And you can amend/adjust/ add as you go. I’d suggest you think of ONE thing you’d like her to do better at. Maybe something that is a big annoyance for you. And tell her it’s now a rule that xyz happens. (In my case… my husband hates having dishes in the sink and I did it more often than not. He said “no more dishes in the sink. If I find them there and discover it was you who left them, you’ll be punished.”). Third: don’t be afraid to enforce the rules. In fact, I’d tell you she will respect you MORE for enforcing them than if you give her free passes/ let things slide/ ignore transgressions. Fourth: educate yourself. And tell her to educate herself. And as you do, COMMUNICATE with one another. Read all you can and talk about what/how to implement the things you both like. You can’t communicate enough! You have to be open and honest and just start talking! And lastly… don’t be afraid to adjust things that work or don’t. Feel free to email me if you want to talk more… I’ll help in any way I can!
