From the blog

The Other Sex
| Both sexes should be valued through their complementarity rather than unappreciated in competition.

The BS Detector | Your spouse can detect your mood through your body language – no matter what your words are saying.

The Art of Seduction | After marriage, the romance routine gets old and a wife longs for her husband to buy in to her values and standards.

New Year Resolutions | Since the world hasn’t ended…re-evaluate your resolutions this year, keeping your marriage at the highest priority.

Positive Thinking | Capitalising on positivity will enrich your marriage through deeper connection.

It Doesn’t Matter Anyway…Or Does It? | The first step towards rebuilding marriage in society is believing it is both possible and optimal. Pretending ‘it doesn’t really matter’ is unhelpful, to everyone involved.

More Than “I’m Sorry” | Saying sorry and asking for forgiveness are two very different factors in resolving arguments.

Kiss Me Quick! | A lack of affection in marriage causes a lack of emotional connection in sexual intimacy.


New Resources

SmartLoving @ Home is a series of DIY sessions you can use at home or in a small group. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee, you can download the file at the time of purchase and use the material on your computer, mobile device or make a print copy.

Responsible Honesty | It’s more than not telling lies; in marriage it requires an willingness to share deeply and vulnerably

Sexuality as Gift | Learning to appreciate our sexuality and build the sexual atmosphere between us.

The Ambitious Couple | What is the role of ambition in marriage?

Hear Me Know Me | It is often said that we cannot love what we do not know.
