Relationship Success Tips Video

Press play to watch my Extraordinary Women Television interview with host, Shannon Skinner on relationship success.

Some of the relationship tips I discuss during the show include:

      • the importance of passionate, sexual chemistry
      • the love exchange between men and women
      • why putting yourself first is important
      • how honoring your differences creates cooperation

…and more!

As a reminder, I continue to read and respond to all reader comments personally and welcome your comments and questions.

  1. Hi there Susan, I recently read your book during a bad patch in my marriage and was immediately won over. However, I am struggling to follow your principles in a particular disagreement. A desicion has to be made about our sons pre school choice, my husband wants to send him to the next town, while it would make my life easier( baby number 3 due) to have him attend at the school his brother is at in our town.
    Have you got any advise how to manage this particular conflict?
    I look forward to ur response, gratefully, Laura Murphy.

    1. Hi Laura, Happy New Year and thank you for writing. I’m pleased to hear that you enjoyed my book! My advice would be to spend some time working to strengthen your relationship with your husband as this is something you want to address when the two of you are feeling a strong connection with one another (i.e. close, happy, cooperative). So, spend some quality time together doing things you both love (preferably no screens.. computer, television, theatre etc!)… anything that makes you both laugh is great. Then, let your husband know that you “appreciate that he cares so much about ensuring the children have a good education. however, with baby #3 on the way you feel uncomfortable having to spend more time on the road when you’d prefer to keep your travel time down so that you can focus more energy at home with the children and keep your stress down.” Then ask him “Is it possible to come up with a solution that will work for both of us?” End of conversation. Leave it with him and trust that he’ll make another decision that takes your needs into consideration. Do this as often as you need to until he proposes a solution that feels good to you. My very best wishes to you with this and with your pregnancy – keep me posted! Warmly, Susan
