Get set for a lifetime together to savor the joy and successfully be a team for the curveballs life will throw your way.

Relationships should be the place we feel more secure. If we feel mistrusted, unheard, unseen or misunderstood, then we feel sad, hurt, and angry. Then couples argue, withdraw, and blame. If only my partner would change, then everything would be fine.

Many couples go through this. But it doesn’t have to be like this. You just want to feel better and be happy.

Argue? Don’t Talk? Feel Unheard? Criticized? Misunderstood? Taken for Granted? Don’t Have Sex or Not Intimate Anymore? An Affair?
