Even though it was too late for my marriage, I knew I had to figure out what went wrong because I never wanted to experience this type of pain ever again, and I wanted to help others avoid it, not only for themselves but for their children as well.
So, I went on a mission and became obsessed with learning the exact skills, strategies, and steps to save a dying relationship.
Now, I will say upfront that not all marriages are meant to survive. Some couples are not compatible and probably never should have gotten together in the first place. And I'm certainly not saying people should stay together for financial reasons or even for the kids. However, I am saying that MANY failing marriages could be saved using the right steps and strategies, in the right order.
For almost two years after the end of my marriage, I analyzed and dissected every square inch of my failed relationship. I researched what other relationship experts were saying. I studied what was happening and NOT happening in truly successful relationships. And as I figured things out, I started teaching my clients surprising new ways to recharge their relationship, BEFORE calling it quits (or turning to someone else).
