That’s the reaction I had after I finished watching this amazing new video …
One of the hottest new relationship coaches, James Bauer, created this video to explain to women what the single most important thing is to a man in a relationship …
I’m certain that what it is will really surprise you. Not many women know about this proven, simple fact.
Guys really are more complicated than we women think, yet easier to understand than we make it.
After he reveals this most important thing, James then shows you what you can do to trigger this critical emotion in your guy to draw him closer to you and make him almost addicted to you for the long-term.
What I love most about what James explains is that it’s nothing manipulative or dodgy like many other relationships information online. It’s a basic human need that happens to be MUCH more important to men than to women which is why we women so often overlook this…and accidentally send great guys running.

P.S. Hope you’re getting some special family time over the Christmas / New Year period. We had a lovely time with various family over three days, and our 1 1/2 year old daughter received a crazy number of gifts!
P.P.S. I already tried out James’s advice on my husband and it really worked! Give it a try with your guy tonight…

When people say marriage is all about compromise, I cringe. This word comes with such negative connotations. It just adds to the negative myths people throw at marriage. What if couples are compromising because maybe they haven’t been properly educated on how to have an argument? « Read the rest of this entry »

We’ve been talking to a few couples that are all within their first two years of marriage. There’s a myth that the first two years are the “honeymoon period” and that after that, things go speedily downhill. It’s quite clear to me, the people who identify with that myth are couples who ignore the things that come up in those first two years, pretend everything is hunky dory, and after two years get tired of holding a mirage and get irritable.
On the contrary, we’re finding that the couples we are working with are not finding this time so rose-coloured, and are in fact worried how they’ll get through some of it. And we’re glad to see it because that’s the only way they’ll resolve these things. « Read the rest of this entry »

We get so caught up in planning for the big wedding day, we lose track of what the day is all about – getting ready to spend the rest of our lives together. Here are five vital things you should do to prepare yourselves for that lifetime commitment you are about to make.
1. Share your top five values with each other
Do you know what your fiancé’s core values are in life? Does he know yours? Most of us don’t actually know these until we sit down and discuss these questions to help us figure them out. For example, how do you both feel about family, problem solving, justice or creativity? As much as we think we might know our partner, we can never guess what their top five priorities are in life. Remember, assumption is the mother of all relationship muck-ups!
2. Find out each others love language
We each need to know and be constantly reminded we are loved – but not necessarily verbally. Gary Chapman’s Five Love Languages describes the different actions that communicate our love for our partner and the fact we need to speak in our partner’s love language to ensure they feel loved.

Here are the answers to the other question some brides and grooms answered a week ago, at a wedding expo our business No Myth Marriages took part in.
Most found the question “What does an Ideal Marriage Look like?” challenging to answer.
From the boys, “happiness” stood out more strongly than anything else. From the girls, laughter, fun and friendship were the more common themes. The brides were a little more descriptive about what happiness actually meant for them! The all-out favourite answer of the day was from one of the grooms: “Lot’s of sexy time”. « Read the rest of this entry »

Our company No Myth Marriages was at a Bridal Expo during the weekend, and we asked hundreds of brides and grooms to answer one of two questions: “what is marriage”? or “what does an ideal marriage look like”?
The answers are very interesting and cool… though I really hope some of these brides and grooms manage to get to some kind of pre-marriage course 🙂 I thought I would post them up because it’s interesting.
They are loosely grouped into similar ideas. About a third mentioned commitment, by far the most common response.

1. Go on regular dates
Keep trying to impress your partner, like you did on your first dates, and acknowledge and praise your partner when they do something impressive. Keep courting each other, even when married! It’s important to come up with things to do together, just like you would with other friends. Your marriage partner is hopefully your best friend, so do things that friends do as well as what partners do. You both still need to grow as individuals even when married, so regular dates also give you the necessary opportunities to keep getting to know one another.
2. Keep some things just for you two
Have special codes, in-jokes, and secrets (preferably not about other people), that are unique to you as a couple. You both need to agree on what things are sacred between the two of you and do not share them with anyone else. These intimate pieces of knowledge about each other and shared histories help create a bond and can be triggers for ongoing intimacy. Your intimacy is diluted when shared with others outside of your relationship. Honour your partner: never kiss and tell – do not even tell your mothers, sisters, brothers or best buddies! « Read the rest of this entry »
