recommit to your marriage

A common theme we have encountered countless times in the past couple of decades is couples who have drifted apart.  Often it occurs when a couple reaches the point where their children are leaving home, and it is now just the two of them in the household.  While one or the other of the couple has wanted to leave the marriage for a long time, they have hung in there for the sake of the kids.  Now that the kids have been launched, the main motivation for staying is gone, and the focus turns squarely on the marriage.

These are common questions for those committed to long-term marriages. In fact, the flames of passion can start to wane within a few years. In one study, 75% of couples said that their relationship was losing its passion and that it began 3 ½ years

can your marriage survive menopause

While menopause is a natural thing that happens in life, it is important to understand that it can get messy but you can survive it.  It isn’t something that most women can simply breeze through without some degree of difficulty.
