When infidelity happens in our relationships, most of the time we have a pre-programmed social response that happens automatically. The person who discovers the infidelity is the victim, and the person who committed the act is undoubtedly the monster. If we’re the victim, our friends and family say things to us like: “You're leaving them right?!” “…

Have you ever wondered why love and relationships can be so challenging and hurt so much? How are we supposed to understand WHY the people we love most do what they do? Heck, I’m sure you’ve questioned why you’ve done certain things to yourself. (Myself included!) I can almost guarantee we’ve almost never been given the whole story, so when the emo…
 
Money challenges are the number one cause of relationship breakdown, yet most couples don’t have the tools to navigate them. They carry on simply hoping things will just work out.

If the quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives, why do we spend so little time (and money) investing in them?

What would your day-to-day look like if you felt cherished all the time by your partner? Can you even imagine such a thing? (Yes, it’s possible!)

Emotional intelligence is probably a term you've heard many times, but have you ever stopped to think about how much it affects your relationships?

If you’re like me, you have powerful memories of being a kid and laying under the decorated Christmas tree looking up at the twinkling lights.
