To Nag or Not to Nag, That is the Question

Nobody likes to be nagged at. Or being the nag. But couples often find themselves caught in these situations of being annoyed with each other. Is there a way to end the nagging?

Joining our host, Alicia Boo, is Natalie Yeo who has been married for four years. They dissect the anatomy of nagging and Natalie shares her hard-fought journey of first-year nagging woes to present-time win-win situations.

Find out how she challenged herself with "1-minute chores", which changed her own attitude and posture over time - and even her husband's.

"While nagging at its core is very well intended, a lot of times it really doesn't sound loving or supportive. When I learned to think the best of my spouse, I really realised that nagging isn't the best way to communicate what I'm trying to say to him."


Dear married couples, while regular dates are essential to stay connected, a good date is not about how often you head out with your spouse but rather, giving committed time to draw in to each other - to communicate and connect.

Focus on the Family Singapore would like to invite you and your spouse to join us for the Best Date Ever on 20 or 21 August 2022. Re-Connect & Re-Ignite the Romance with your Forever Date!
