Relationships are the core of our lives. This is where we often feel the most pain and the most joy. For many of us, we are wanting better experiences with our partners and that begins with us! Better Wife Better Life is about helping and encouraging women to feel empowered to be in healthy relationships through life changing communication strategies, having a better understanding of our partners and improving assertiveness and boundaries.

We often hear that love is something that you feel, that you just "know" when you've met the "right" person. Jake and I offer a different perspective in this final episode of Better Wife Better Life! We talk about all things related to love and communication in our own life and some of our goals for the future.

How we experience our partner's behaviors and words can very much be influenced by whether we are looking for our partners to mess up or whether we are believing the best about them.
It's Not About the Toothpaste
Conflict is rarely about the actual topic and often more about the underlying unmet needs of ourselves and our partners.
All relationships go through some ups and downs. Learning the art of resiliency can help a couple come out even stronger during the tough times!
