    Investing in your relationship for 2020

    Investing in your relationship for 2020

    This close to the end of 2019, today’s podcast had to have a new year focus!  However, what this episode isn’t about is setting ourselves up to fail with unrealistic New Year Resolutions – that list of things that that we think we ought to do rather than realistic plans for real change!  What we do discuss is the importance of reflection when it comes to marriage and relationships, whether that be at the end of the year or any other time that you choose as a couple.  Considering what has been working well to build on more and what needs to change and being intentional about those changes.  Happy New Year!

    Happy Stressmas!

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Stressmas! Will it be a ‘Merry Little Christmas’, will it be a ‘White Christmas’ or the ‘Nightmare before Christmas’?  According to the movies and songs, this should be the most wonderful time of the year, but it can in fact be one of the most stressful times of year which has the potential to put a lot of strain on your relationship.  So, what can you do to help things?  We talk today about some of the Christmas challenges we’ve had to deal with and consider the real priorities of the season.

    Infidelity – why can it happen when we don’t think it’s right?

    Following Michaela’s interviews on several BBC Regional Radio stations, we thought we’d reflect on the tricky subject of infidelity and the findings of a morality survey conducted by the BBC which found that 3 in 5 adults (60%) who say they have been unfaithful to their partner also say it’s never acceptable to cheat.  So why is there this disconnect between what people say and do?  Why can unfaithfulness happen in a relationship? And what can we do to avoid it?

    ‘Happily Ever After’ – Part 2

    Last time, we looked at this fairy tale phrase ‘Happily Ever After’ to understand what comes to mind when we think about the word marriage and if it is a Disney-like experience.  Today we delve into the specifics of happiness in the ‘happily ever after’ of real life.  Is constant happiness actually possible, can we really all live…happily ever after?
