I don't believe that my marriage needs to be perfect. I also don't believe any marriages are.
What I do believe in are couples who understand the cycle of connection, disconnection and repair.
And I believe that healthy couples are ones who see where they are in those cycles and do the work of staying mindful of their needs and process.
My partner and I have disconnected moments. We're also mindful to practice cycling back into repair and connection.
It's the practice of this Connectfulness® cycle that I also guide couples into.
