Cut the shenanigans! How does your marriage stack up?

  If you’ve been married for more than a year… …Or in a committed relationship for more than a year I’d wager you’ve been in an argument or tense discussion with your partner surrounding one of the BIG 5: MONEY, KIDS, SEX, COMMUNICATION or your RELATIONSHIP… A super successful career-focused woman and her business owning husband, we will call them Susan and Jake, recently shared their story with us. My guess is their story will ring true with you… Susan and Jake shared they’d spent years arguing over finances and recently had one of the biggest blow-ups they could recall- lasting for hours in the early morning and then moving into days of silence between them as they could bear being in the same room for days after…almost an entire week out of their lives, nearly wasting 168 hours.

So let’s get to the 1%, the vulnerable… How’s your marriage, your long-time committed relationship really doing? And getting even more raw with you, if it’s under a five and has been for sometime do you even really want or have the energy to invest in getting it back to a 10? The place of toe-curling passion, romance and “happily ever after” you pictured when you originally met your partner?   How many sleepless nights have you spent, lying awake next to your lover? Feeling like they just don’t see you or know you or care what challenges you faced that day?
