Hi Everyone, Just a quick note for those of you who may want to catch Friday’s CTV Morning Show at 8AM.
We’ll be talking about the importance for couples to check in daily. I’ve talked about this in a previous Relationship Essential so you can refer to it for further information. The main point is that staying connected daily virtually guarantees relationship success.
The #1 reason couples cite for getting divorced is that they SLOWLY GREW APART.
Tune in on Friday and get the whole scoop! Here’s some of the key points we’ll be discussing:
- The #1 reason for divorce is INATTENTIVENESS. Most divorcing couples cite, “gradually growing apart” as the main factor in the demise of their marriage. This is why staying connected daily is so important. In our busy lives, it’s very easy to put other things (work, kids, hobbies, television, etc.) ahead of your relationship.
- Spending a few minutes connecting each day puts critical deposits in the couple’s LOVE BANK ACCOUNT. Forgetting to connect daily is like an emotional withdrawal from the account and it takes more effort to gain that goodwill back. It’s similar to going to the gym regularly.
- Connection is different than communication – connection means feeling cared about, close and comfortable. Couples should think connection NOT communication because communication goes a lot better when couples feel connected.
