Today we are chatting with Dominic Cruz, who is a breakup expert, on a mission to help young men and women recover from their breakup so they can be more at peace and be fulfilled to find hope and peace in their future relationships.
Today he is sharing his tops top ways to prevent your relationship from failing.
1.Getting to know each other- We are continually changing over time and it is important to be committed to getting to know each other as we evolve. Dominic’s motto is “Always be learning and always be better than yesterday”. We can do this by constantly being curious and wanting to get to know our partner- regardless of how long you have been together.
2. Date Night- its so important. A few parameters for date night is its NOT a time to talk about stressful things like the kids, or careers, or problems in the relationship. It IS for fun! It is just a few hours one night a week that you can share your passions with your partner. If you miss it this week, you do it twice the next week. Protect the time you have together, have fun, be together and do not be stressed.
3. Have a vision and share your goals – plan for ‘we’. Don’t have the mindset of what makes “me” happy. Instead have it as what makes “us” happy. When planning your life together you will find that you have different values. Make sure to share and learn each other’s values along the way. Don’t be afraid if they are different. We grow from challenges and they make our relationship stronger.

Today we continuing our conversation with interracial couple Katelyn and Kelvin Belser. They met each other at church 14 years ago. But when they developed feelings for each other, and Katelyn’s family found out, they were forced to break up. They had to end their relationship and had zero contact for over a year.
However, when their paths crossed again, they could not ignore the spark they felt for each other. They believe, that when you truly love someone, you have to fight for that love. These two have an inspiring mindset about their journey and the struggles they have had to overcome. Coming from different cultural backgrounds, having different role models of healthy marriages, losing a parent to cancer and dealing with the lack of support from her family – has not torn them apart, but instead made them stronger together.
You do not want to miss this episode as these two might be young, but they are wise beyond their years. Their faith is strong, and their love for each other is even stronger.
Today we are chatting with Alexandra Stockwell MD, author of the book Uncompromising Intimacy. She is a relationship and intimacy expert just like me. Alexandra believes that when both people know how to love and be loved for exactly who they are, the relationship is juicy, nourishing and deeply satisfying.
Alexandra is breaking the traditions of marital advice and teaching couples that compromise does not lead to long term relationship success. We should not let our spouse’s needs become more important than our own. Not to say that you should get your way all the time or that you dominate the relationship, instead learning how to be vulnerable with each other and honest about our wants and desires.
How do we do this? By cultivating curiosity, being curious about your partner and asking questions about what they like and don’t like. This allows us to be more curious about ourselves and we can learn and accept our own desires and needs.
Every interaction we have with our spouse that isn’t sex is foreplay. Moments throughout the day are either bringing you closer together or building up walls, resentment, and separation. We discuss ways to have difficult conversations with our spouses that can not only end with our desired outcome, but also builds excitement to get into the bedroom.
