Do you know the top 5 predictors of relationship breakdown?
Navigating the relationship road-map can be tough.
Too good to leave, too bad to stay. Recommit or quit.
Poor communication is the number one predictor of relationship breakdown. The remaining 4 predictors include sex, money, parenting and betrayal. What is happening in your relationship? Navigating these challenges requires superior communication skills and goodwill. Learning tools for talking, listening and fair fighting will see the relationship strengthen. However, if you are dirty fighting or ignoring the issues feelings of anger, sadness, hopelessness, and fear can grow. Over time these negative emotions will dominate your relationship and lead to breakdown. Don’t want a divorce? Don’t want things to continue as they are? Make an appointment to talk to a relationship therapist today OR enquire about our intensive Relationship Reboot Program.

Can your relationship survive an affair? Infidelity now affects 8 out of 10 marriages.
The statistics do little to lessen the pain of betrayal. Are you asking yourself why? What happens between marriage vows being spoken and the act of infidelity? Most people who marry don’t intend to cheat, it is more commonly due to the opinions and expectations society generates around marriage. Sometimes the pressure becomes too much. An affair shocks us into reality but invites us to try again. Once we have survived the destructiveness and deceit a new opportunity is born – the opportunity to discover true clarity and connection with our life partner. The major difference between relationships that work and fail is how well couples accept and deal with the challenges confronting them. Forgiving your partner and yourself, becoming sexually intimate again, and moving forward takes courage and commitment. In time you may come to see “the affair” as the alarm or wakeup call your relationship needed. Let us help you navigate the Relationship Roadmap. Make an appointment today.

In your relationship is there a spendaholic and a scrooge? Do you have different goals with regards to renting or buying a home? What about having a baby – can we afford it? Are you in control of your credit card debt? Do you ‘dirty fight’ when discussing money issues with your partner? Money has no power of its own. Surveys often show that couples fight over money more than anything else! Often the fight is not about money itself but other underlying issues. Money often gets the bill (blame) but the charge belongs elsewhere. A power imbalance and a lack of respect is often the cause. Yours, Mine, Ours Here are the top 8 money issues that couples fight about:
- Spender/Saver – couples that have different values about money
- Separate and joint bank accounts
- Secret spending habits
- Not discussing big purchases
- Unequal incomes
Discussing money is part of navigating the relationship roadmap. Where are you on the map – Honeymoon or power struggle stage? The balance of your relationship will be determined by deposits to the Love Bank. Keep the balance high. Yours, mine and ours is a compulsory conversation. If you are struggling to have this conversation then make an appointment to talk to a therapist or book in for our intensive Relationship Recharge Program.
