How would you go about staying out of a divorce attorney's office?
Find a great divorce attorney to listen to?
Jim Sexton is an accomplished New York divorce attorney who has seen it all throughout his 20 plus year career focused on divorce law. What makes Jim unique is that he took his life experience and work as a divorce attorney and created a book, How to Stay in Love: A Divorce Lawyer's Guide to Staying Together.
Jim's experience has led him to believe that marriages and other committed relationships fail for two fundamental reasons. One, you don't know what you want, and two, you can't express what you want. This lack of communication with yourself and your partner is often the relationship killer.
Throughout our discussion, Jim highlights actionable steps that you can take to help solidify your relationship, such as leaving your spouse/partner a little note of gratitude, a weekly win/fail walk, and a "hit send now" email. The basis for these actions is all focused on the need to keep checking in with yourself and your spouse/partner.
I agree with Jim that it's better to stay in love, stoke existing love, than to slowly fall out of love and try to find it again. This is a process that you control and that the person you love controls. How great is that?
