Today on Mastering Midlife:

  • How challenges in his own marriage led him and his wife to “less than effective,” resources and moved him to create a program that works.
  • Old models focus on fixing things that are “wrong,” which doesn’t work.
  • When we focus on making “new things right,” relationships transform.
  • The problem with many marriages is the parties involved don’t actually want to commit, so they focus on the problems and disagreements.
  • They call it “falling in love,” it doesn’t take any skill. The skills are needed when the infatuation fades.
  • The divorce rate in first marriages is 50%. Second Marriages 70%, Third/80%.  What do these marriages have in common?
  • How a thriving, successful marriage supports your professional life.
