Is your relationship flat? Dull? Losing its luster? Are you bored?

When things lack excitement in our lives, we tend to get bored with them very quickly and easily. We try to find the next, newest best thing. If our hair is flat, dull, and losing luster, we try a new conditioner or hairstyle. If our cell phones are from last season, we go buy the newest version of iPhone or Android. When a new video game, fashion trend or hairstyle becomes popular, we all flock to the stores and salons to get the new exciting trends as we become bored with our old things. But what if your relationship is flat and dull? And you’re feeling really bored with your partner? Perhaps the sex life is barely there or absent altogether. We don’t just drop our relationship to find someone else to keep things exciting. How can we add some excitement, adventure, and passion into our relationships?

Are your broken dreams affecting your relationship?

From childhood to adulthood we have all had hopes and dreams for our futures. As children we dream of becoming presidents, police officers, astronauts, pilots, and firefighters. As we age into teenagers and young adults our dreams consist of going to college to get our degrees and travelling the world. As adults we dream of things like having a family and climbing the corporate ladder. When you get married, some of your hopes and dreams may become morphed together as both of you want each other to achieve your dreams. You may want to start a family or move to the other side of the country. But, what happens when these dreams die or fail? How can this affect your relationship and how do you move on?

Is your spouse’s eating disorder affecting your marriage?

As a society we are growing more aware of mental illness and the effects it can have on an individual and their loved ones. We now observe National Mental Health Awareness Month in May each year to recognize and bring awareness about mental health disorders and the effects it has on the people suffering with a disorder. Mental Health Awareness Month acknowledges disorders such as depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder among many others. Now that we are aware of what mental health disorders are and how they affect an individual, we now have to discover just how the disorder can affect those people close to the individual suffering. Eating Disorder is among those disorders recognized in the National Mental Health Awareness Month. How can having an eating disorder affect a marriage?
