After the honeymoon, your real relationship begins. The fanfare is over. You go back to work. You settle in. Life becomes routine. You’re busy with career, kids, parents, holidays, the stresses of life. The days go slow but the years fly by.
For many couples their relationship doesn’t get enough attention. You wake up one day and question the partnership you are in.
- Is the spark still there?
- Do you still love your partner the way you used to?
- Are you connected?
- Have you grown together or apart?
We often see couples who “sleep through their marriage,” and only wake up when a crisis occurs. They come to us after a lot of damage and/or a lot of distance has permeated their relationship.
That’s why it’s so important to “stay awake,” to pay attention to your relationship, to feed it, nurture it, renew it, refresh it and revitalize your connection consciously, and often.
“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times –
always with the same person.”
– Mignon McLaughlin
