Here's some of Dr. Dana's answers to common marriage advice questions...
“We’re about to get married and yet we hardly ever see each other any more! How do we connect again as a couple? Any newlywed advice?”
In the StrongMarriageNow System we talk in depth about what we call The Most Important Lesson. We point out that most couples do not spend nearly enough time alone together. Most married couples spend as little as one hour a week alone together; the average couple with kids, sometimes none. The average couple having an affair can spend up to 15 hours alone per week. Isn’t that unreal? I recommend that couples spend at least 8 hours alone together every week.
“What about infidelity? Is a marriage over after an affair?”
We answer this question at length in our webinar, 5 Secrets to Save Your Marriage, but let me just say that the answer is: Absolutely Not! A marriage can be saved after an affair, if you both commit to forgive, get the relationship skills you need, and commit to work together on the marriage. In fact, the marriage can not only be saved, it can be made even stronger and happier than ever before!
“What about emotional affairs?”
On a quick side note, we frequently receive questions about what constitutes infidelity. We receive descriptions of lots of inappropriate friendships, “She’s really close to the neighbor guy, but they’re just friends,” “He’s really close to a co-worker, but they’re just friends,” etc. While we cover this in greater depth in our Affair-Proof Your Marriage series, I want to say this: when you are married, you should never be close friends with someone of the opposite sex who is not just as close to your spouse. The reason for this is because if you are close friends with someone of the opposite sex who is not also equally close to your spouse, you are getting your emotional needs met outside of your marriage. Further, you are most likely not fulfilling your spouse’s emotional needs either and that combination puts your marriage in extreme jeopardy.
“We just got engaged! Any engagement advice? Wedding advice? Advice for the bride and groom? How about ‘married advice’ poems? Any love quotes?”
Well, I’ll leave the wedding advice to the wedding planner, but I will tell you the Golden Rule of Marriage: You must give in your marriage, what you want to receive.
If you want to be trusted, you must trust. If you want kindness, you must be kind. If you want to be forgiven, you must forgive. And most importantly, if you want to be loved, you must give love. In fact, one of the best “love quotes” ever, came from the Beatles:
“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”
Our whole StrongMarriageNow System is about connecting with your partner, learning how to give affection to each other in the best possible way and how to have better sex; it’s basically all about finding the love!
