The early stages of relationships feel easy and great all of the time. Arguments rarely happen, and it’s all rainbows and butterflies. However, these warm and fuzzy feelings won’t last forever. In today’s episode, you’ll learn how to make your relationship last past the honeymoon stage.

In this episode with Neil Wilkie, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Understanding the 6 critical components of a relationship
  • The importance of commitment in your relationship
  • How to communicate like a pro
  • The key component of connection with your partner
  • How to create more fun in your relationship
  • Why growth and trust are critical to a lasting relationship
  • And much more!

Neil Wilkie is a relationship expert and licensed psychotherapist. After three failed attempts at traditional relationship counseling during an earlier marriage, he saw the need for more focused and supportive counseling. Over the past decade, he has worked with hundreds of couples to help them reconnect. The common themes and patterns that emerged during these sessions with couples provides the foundation for The Relationship Paradigm, his extraordinary approach that is proven to reconnect couples who have drifted apart.
