Couples of all ages yearn for passion, ease, intimacy, and security.
With that longing in common, why do things so often go wrong in relationship?
And by what “magic” do some relationships stay strong, resilient, and loving through all the storms of life?
What if it takes more than good intentions, longing, and effort to make it work?
What if the “magic” turns out to be a set of nine core skills that can be taught…and put into practice by any couple?
I have worked with thousands of couples, many with relationships at the brink of falling apart. They spend considerable time and money to fly in for a one- or two-day intensive with me. We all understand that this is high-stakes: either we will restore the relationship to health, or it will end in divorce.
And my clients have demonstrated over and over again that these nine essential skills can be quickly mastered, and when put into practice can have an immediate and lasting effect on the marriage.
I’ve packed a lot into the Full Respect Living Toolkit eBook–all the most important insights. It’s pithy and effective.
