Does love require 2? Must there always be an object when the word love is used? If so, how does this speak to the concept of self-love?
If you’re looking to move more swiftly towards accomplishing your goals, a life coach can be an incredible investment. However, finding a life coach can often be like trying to make new friends. Not everyone will be right for you, and that “click” is important. After...
My wife Nikki and I enjoy a marriage today that is completely different from the marriage we had before she discovered, in 2010, that I had been cheating for the entire 23 years of our marriage up to that time.
It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in all the negative things we see on a daily basis. With a culture of picture-perfect moments surrounding us every time we turn on the TV or open our phones, it’s easy to compare our lives and what we have to what others are doing...
As a phenomenon, this hasn’t been extensively researched yet, but it’s one that many people can relate to. It describes what happens when someone is betrayed by their partner and this arouses a deep need to win back their partner’s affections. As such, since the betrayal was often of a sexual nature, the method employed is often one of sexual experimentation, and increased sexual frequency.
If you want to put an affair behind you; to completely eliminate all the pain, to create a beautifully connected and affair-proofed marriage going forwards, then this is going to be the most important blog post you will ever read.
Infidelity can be one of the most painful things you experience, next to losing a child. The pain you feel can be excruciating and you might wonder if you can actually get through the next day as you feel so utterly lost and worthless.
In this pain-filled and fragile state, it seems to make perfect sense to turn to the internet for answers. And indeed there are answers out there, but sadly they are buried in a sea of misinformation, emotional outbursts and truly misguided unhelpful ‘advice’.
Having been in both a disconnected, painful and essentially ‘unloving’ relationship and also, latterly, a deeply connected, committed and fulfilling relationship – with the same man! – I think I may be in a fairly unique position to be able to offer my guidance on how to achieve marital bliss, so here goes!
For many married men and women, the discovery that their spouse has been unfaithful comes as a total shock.
It’s been a little over eight years since I discovered my husband had been cheating on me. I still remember that night quite well, but it doesn’t hold any pain for me now. We were sitting in a hotel room down in London, preparing for a property training course the next day. I casually glanced at a workbook which my husband had completed during a recent Tony Robbins personal development seminar and a question caught my eye. “What do you regret most in life?” it asked, and there in my husband’s distinctive handwriting he had written the words “being unfaithful”.
As I said, that night was eight years ago and the journey to the present day has been interesting. Lots of highs and lows but I can, hand on heart, say that I’m really glad the infidelity happened because we have an amazing relationship now and I know that we wouldn’t have that, if things had drifted on as they were.
Today I’m going to talk about my husband’s background.
