Relationship problems? This is magic!

Marie Forleo, Guest Author

Ever been in the middle of a fight with a loved one and felt crushed by the realization that you’ve had this exact fight *100* times before? Cue David Byrne. “Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was.”

We’ve all been there. In fact, Josh and I were caught in this loop in a bad way a few years back. These days, it’s a different story. Dust ups rarely last more than a few minutes.

Not kidding, what today’s guests taught me has been nothing short of a miracle.

It’s all thanks to marriage experts Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D. and Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. They’re authors of many books, including the timeless bestseller, “Getting the Love You Want”.

“Being able to talk to another human being without pissing them off; connecting so that you feel safe with that person and they feel safe with you. That’s the desire of the human heart.” @HarvilleHelen

I wouldn’t have the partnership I have today without them. They have a gift for helping couples build the relationship of their dreams by fostering mutual respect and communication. Besides helping individual couples, they also teach families, teams and organizations.

Because negative relationships don’t just damage our own health and productivity, they have a huge long-term impact on society.

• You’re 100% more at risk from cardiac arrest if you’re in a negative relationship.
• People in broken marriages are 60% less productive.
• The breakdown of families is one of the contributing factors to at least nine major social issues — everything from substance addiction to violence and crime.

In today’s MarieTV episode, you’ll hear the story of how helping marriages in their local community boosted the entire Dallas ecosystem. Plus, you’ll discover a communication technique so good, couples around the world swear it works like magic.

If you have any relationship in your life that needs improving — their work is the best I’ve come across.

Guys: Proposing? Think on These Things!

First of all… before you propose, make sure you are ready to propose. Have you been together long enough to really know each other? It may be wise to cool your jets until you’re beyond the dizzy-with-infatuation stage. Remember, marriage is a lifetime commitment.

If you are ready, be sure to drop enough pre-proposal hints. It’s important to have already discussed the possibility of marriage with your sweetheart before you pop the question. Patience. Have you received unequivocal signs that she’s equally ready to commit? The last think you want to hear is, “Let me think about it… we need to talk about this later.”

WEDproposalThe actual marriage proposal can seem awfully intimidating, with so many questions as to where, when and how. A good deal of consideration should be put into the timing and setting of this event. Preparation is the key. Be creative. However, remember that your ideal proposal may not be hers.

If you like things larger than life, but she tends to be reserved, flashing your proposal on the scoreboard during the Diamondback’s game is a bad idea. Public proposals only work for people who don’t mind being the sudden center of attention.

It’s important to have already discussed the possibility of marriage with your sweetheart before you pop the question. Decide what you’re going to say and practice, practice, practice. Focus on making this a happy memory and everything will turn out fine.

Enlist the aid of friends to help you execute your proposal plan. Don’t forget the ring. Will there be roses and champagne?

Public proposals are just okay, however, try to pick a place that’s a little more personal and romantic.

Pop a breath mint in your mouth before the proposal (there may be some kissing). No matter what else you say during your proposal, when you pop that final question, get down on bended knee! Research shows that 90% of women surveyed hope that, when a man proposes to them, he will get down on one knee.

Once she says, “Yes,” she is going to tell everyone so make your proposal a story worth telling. No matter what your proposal may be, it should always end with the words, “Will you marry me?”

Here are a few videos that will give you some ideas:

If your marriage proposal will be a surprise… be absolutely sure you know what she will say!

Okay! You’ve just witnessed one of the tragedies of a marriage proposal where the hopeful groom did not know what she would say. Now… grab some tissues and get ready for the best proposal I’ve ever seen. It actually brought a few tears to my eyes! Click here!
