Three Life Hacks for Saving Your Marriage

You’ve been working really hard on your relationship. At least, it feels like hard work because it’s so draining and takes up so much time and energy. The bad news is you were probably working on trying to fix the wrong things. The good news is that no matter how bad it seems now, it’s not too late to use these life hacks to get back the relationship—the fulfilling one you set out to have when you first fell in love. That’s true even if you’re separated, there’s been an affair, or the divorce is already started.

Of course, if the affairs are chronic, your partner is actively addicted to drugs, alcohol or gambling, or you’re with a physical abuser, it may not be worth saving your marriage because you’re not safe.

Hi! I'm Laura.

I was great wife material until, well, I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me had returned.

I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.

Dial Back the Relationship Drama by Doing This

relationship drama

In the bad old days, when my husband John and I used to fight all the time or have cold wars, there was plenty of relationship drama. It wasn’t much fun, but over time, I got used to it.

Drama on the home front was my habit.

When I finally discovered and started practicing The Six Intimacy Skills and my relationship got more playful and passionate, things were also a lot calmer at our house.

When I wasn’t saying critical, disrespectful, and controlling things to my husband, at first I felt like I had nothing to say to him (which says a lot about how critical, disrespectful, and controlling I had been before).

It felt really odd. It was like we had little to talk about compared to before. It was peaceful, but it was also strangely quiet.

I was uncomfortable. I felt like something was missing.

How to Get Your Wife to Stop Nagging

how to deal with a nagging wife

As a former nagging shrew, I can tell you that it’s not an enjoyable pastime. It took me a long time to even realize I was nagging. I felt soooo justified.

I was convinced that if I didn’t repeat myself and make lists for my husband and manage him, nothing would ever get done. When he didn’t respond well, I came back with even sharper and louder orders, which never worked.

Bad idea–I know. It really cost me my dignity and self-esteem, and it sure cost me intimacy and connection with my husband.

I didn’t like the sound of my own sarcasm and whining. It wasn’t attractive–even to me. I knew I was driving him away, and I was terrified I was going to end up alone if I didn’t stop.

Truth be told, I didn’t even want to be around myself because I sounded so screechy all the time.

Here’s the big, dark secret we naggers all have:

One of the awesomest things about being a relationship coach for over 16 years is that I’ve had the privilege of watching thousands of relationships transform from broken and hopeless to vibrant and connected.

My clients often come to me after a stint of marriage counseling (which I don’t recommend for these reasons) or a big crisis: They’re separated, or one of them has filed for divorce or is threatening to.

The Real Reason Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Filed for Divorce

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Divorce

When Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their divorce, I felt sad for those two all-American-looking stars and their three kids. Divorce is always tragic, but especially when it’s somebody that kind of feels like a friend because you’ve seen them in the movies.

Despite their very public efforts to stay together–including Ben thanking Jennifer for working hard on their relationship in an Oscar speech–and a reported two years of marriage counseling, they didn’t make it.

How Your Parents Set You up to Get Divorced

Your divorce might not be all your fault. Perhaps your parents’ played a role. They were probably terrible role models.

6 Steps for Women on How to Stop a Divorce

How To Stop Divorce

Divorce is like tooth decay: totally preventable for a woman with the right skills and habits. Unfortunately most women didn’t have good relationship role-models. We are largely the product of single parents, broken homes or marriages that we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy — the equivalent of learning oral care from parents with false teeth.

We aren’t born with the skills to foster intimacy, passion and peace anymore than we’re born with a Sonicare and good flossing habits. Fortunately, any woman can learn intimacy skills and use them to create trust, tenderness and connection.

Here are the six proven intimacy skills your mother never taught you that lead to satisfying, lifelong love:
