Relationships are hard. You go from flying solo to partnership and you’re suddenly just supposed to understand how to share your life with someone.
There are a ton of reasons why romantic relationships are hard. They’re more intimate than other relationships. It’s the first time for a lot of people that you’re expected to make decisions as a unit or really put someone before yourself.
At this time, 50% of all marriages fail. And 67% of second marriages failed. Which is kinda scary because it shows if your marriage fails once, there’s not a whole lot of evidence that you automatically learn to do better.
I don’t really like calling it failing. I think with every end is a chance for a new beginning. But the catch is, you have to learn from it. Otherwise, it kind of is a failure because not only did it end, but you’re not taking away anything from it to do better the next time.
But if it’s a learning experience, then it’s just a little detour on the greater path of your life.
If you’re having the same fight over and over again, or you’re always arguing over who’s right, or you don’t feel emotionally connected, or you just want to make sure you’re prepared for when conflict does arise, this episode is for you.
Because today we’re going to learn the tools to make your relationship last. Our guest is Matthew Fray. He is the author of: This Is How Your Marriage Ends: A Hopeful Approach To Saving Relationships.
