The majority of the couples that want to improve their relationship identify that communication is an issue for them. They share how they can't see eye-to-eye, convey their feelings and perspective, or understand each other. They report they end up fighting every time they try to address something, as well as, not being able to resolve disagreements or being delayed in making decisions because they can't get on the same page with their partner.
The lack of communication means struggling day in and day out in their relationship. Some partners choose to go it alone when making decisions or addressing needs to avoid disagreements and disappointment. Partners that avoid conflict end up having a very distant and lonely relationship. On the other hand, partners that are not avoidant are at risk of escalating disagreements that threaten their emotional, physical safety or the relationship itself. Either way, this lack of skill is detrimental to their well-being, their relationship and their quality of life.
The divorce rate nationally hovers at around fifty percent. I believe divorce is a national tragedy, as it is terribly stressful and often expensive for the involved adults, quite sad for the parents of the couple, and absolutely traumatic for the children. A major reason for this unfortunate divorce statistic is that most couples do not learn how to settle their issues.
Couples who adopt these five rules quickly learn that their discussions can be constructive, issues can be resolved, and their relationship can grow and move forward.
What makes a relationship extraordinary? And what weakens, or even destroys, a relationship?
It all comes down to our beliefs on what we decide we deserve. We all create our MUST list — those things we believe MUST happen in a relationship in order for us to be happy. However, when we have too many MUST or our MUST is determined by what we can get out of the relationship, the relationship can quickly become a nightmare.

One of the teachers said to me afterward, "That was THE BEST speaker I have ever listened to." And I'm not just saying that - those were her exact words :) Thanks for doing an amazing job!
