Keeping The Flame Alive In A Long Term Relationship

In A Strong Relationship? Don’t Make This Mistake – Interview with QSalt Lake Magazine

Congratulations! You’re in a long term, committed, happy relationship. What’s your secret? People tend to think that the longer the relationship, the easier it gets. You finish each others’ sentences, you know your partner better than you know yourself, your communication is flawless, you have it down! Not quite… With time comes routine, predictability, boredom. The most common question I get from clients in long-term relationships summarizes it perfectly “Between kids, housework, chores and work, how do I keep the flame alive?” Indeed… What about the spice? I answered this exact question in my interview with QSalt Lake Magazine, read the full article on a fine romance, here.

Healthy Marriage Habits

Featured Tips – BestLife Article

Dana was recently interviewed by Sarah Crow for an article in BestLife in which she provided tips to help sustain a healthy marriage. Having made it through the stress of the holidays, the advice provided in this article is timely for those looking to strengthen their relationships moving into the new year. One of the tips in the article was to “tell your partner what you need without being critical.” When one spouse says, “Is there a way you could stop leaving your socks on the floor?” all too often, their partner hears it as a personal slight. Instead, try to make those needs known without criticizing your partner. “If we can find a way to talk about our partner’s behaviors and how those behaviors impact the way we feel, then it is much easier for our partner to hear,” says Dana McNeil, a licensed marriage and family therapist based in San Diego. In doing so, you’re more likely to receive a response that’s rooted in empathy, rather than defensiveness. If you would like to have more tools to help strengthen your relationship, schedule a consultation today. Even if you believe your relationship is great, you can still benefit from a relationship checkup. You can read the full article here.
