We enter into relationships full of hopes and dreams, yet somewhere along the way things begin to fall apart. All of a sudden we question whether we are still in love, or find our partner telling us that they are no longer ‘in’ love with us. Keeping the love and passion alive in a relationship is not easy, and there is no manual to turn to. It is easy to feel alone and disillusioned and questioning why you should stay in this relationship.
- Not feeling the passion like you used to?
- Finding you are arguing more frequently?
- Feeling disconnected and unloved?
- More like friends these days than lovers?
- Feeling like you are on opposing teams?
- Staying together only for the sake of the kids?
- Wondering if life would be better without each other?
Well, you are not alone! Today the most common reason couples divorce is not major, irreconcilable differences, it is simply that they have fallen ‘out’ of love. In today’s world we demand much more from our romantic partner than we ever did before, and when we don’t receive the response we crave we often become disillusioned and begin to consider other options.
Statistics show, however, that though up to 50% of all first marriages end in divorce, that increases to up to 70% of all second marriages, and up to 80% of all third marriages. So, is the grass really greener on the other side? Clearly in most cases the answer is no! Instead, most people take the same issues that led to the demise of their first marriage into their next, rather than learning how to create a lasting and loving relationship. So, what can you do?

“I have no way of knowing whether or not you married the wrong person, but I do know that many people have a lot of wrong ideas about marriage and what it takes to make that marriage happy and successful. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s possible that you did marry the wrong person. However, if you treat the wrong person like the right person, you could well end up having married the right person after all. On the other hand, if you marry the right person, and treat that person wrong, you certainly will have ended up marrying the wrong person. I also know that it is far more important to be the right kind of person than it is to marry the right person. In short, whether you married the right or wrong person is primarily up to you” – Zig Ziglar
