How to Deepen Your Connection

June 10, 2020, 11:00 am • 43m

The #1 reason people sought me out for couples counseling:  “We are just not connected.”  The #1 reason why marriages end up failing:  “We are just too disconnected." What happened?  That connection you had at the beginning of your marriage… where did it go? I can tell you the biggest reason why couples become disconnected:  life gets in the way.  Or more correctly, couples let life get in the way.  They hit the “pause button” on the relationship.  Because of kids, the career, schooling, hobbies, friends… lots of reasons. They just didn’t know there is no such thing as a pause button.  Either your relationship is growing or receding.  There is no pause. Still, they hit pause… and their marriage begins to disconnect.  Then, reconnecting seems so hard.  It is pushing against the inertia created.  It starts feeling like one more “have to” that is shuffled off to the back, last in line.  The marriage stays “paused,” and the relationship continues to decline. How DO you deepen your connection? That is the topic on this week’s Save The Marriage Podcast. I discuss the 3 levels of connection, and why it is so easy at the beginning… and then gets hard.  I also note the 2 characteristics you need in order to build the connection between you and your spouse. And then, I introduce you to a couple who have created a fun way to build connection with your spouse.  Don’t miss that discussion!   RELATED RESOURCES BetterTopics.com Kickstarter Project Book:  How To Save Your Marriage In 3 Simple Steps (I cover the 3 levels of connection) The Importance of Connection Pause Button Marriage Why Pause is So Bad
