No relationship or marriage is perfect. You probably already knew this. However, you might not know which of the four phases of marriage you’re in, and what it means for you and your partner. Listen to today’s show to create a thriving marriage by understanding the importance of each phase you might go through! This show is worth listening to even if your single or dating!

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • The thriving, working, detached and conflictual stages of marriage
  • How to determine which phase of marriage you’re in and how to change phases
  • The importance of doing things together to create a ‘couple culture’
  • How to ‘act’ your way to being in love
  • What to do if you feel like you’re always at war with your partner
  • And much more!
