    How Your Attachment Style Affects Your Marriage

    Plenty of research shows that insecure attachment styles can be gradually modified over time either through counseling or through positive interactions with a securely attached life partner. One important way to gain insight into the dynamics of your own marriage is to understand your own attachment style as well as that of your spouse.

    Re: Relationship Quotes

    There is a small but excellent book I used to recommend to clients which includes a little quiz at the end that both partners complete to identify their own love language. Can be an interesting conversation starter and it's often revealing in couples where one or both partners feels ignored, not valued, taken for granted, not respected, etc.

    Re: Relationship Quotes

    “Psychologist William James said that possibly the deepest human need is the need to feel appreciated.”

    “Verbal compliments, or words of appreciation, are powerful communicators of love.”

    “We are trained to analyze problems and create solutions. We forget that marriage is a relationship, not a project to be completed or a problem to solve.”

    “I am amazed by how many individuals mess up every new day with yesterday.”

    “The best thing we can do with the failures of the past is to let them be history.”

    ― Gary Chapman, The Five Love Languages

    Re: Relationship Quotes

    I just started to take the quiz, but it reminded me of getting an eye exam -- two options that seem equally good

    Re: Relationship Quotes

    I mentioned the book in passing to my mother, and she mentioned she bought it decades ago when she had issues with my dad

    Recently, I bought the nicest gift ever for my husband. I am saving it for Valentine's Day. Usually, we just go out to dinner for Valentine's, but with the COVID-19 we would be eating in a minivan ( by the river ) So, anyway, this gift be a test to see how important gifts are to him...relative to me helping with the dishes
