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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
