Creating a successful relationship is not always the easiest thing to do.  Your visiting our blog suggests you are highly interested in making your relationship or marriage work!  And truthfully, we have learned over the years that there are highly effective ways to ensure a happy and healthy relationship and marriage.

Nothing feels worse than thinking you fell in love with a great guy, only to discover that he is really a loser.  Our focus is on helping you avoid this type of mistake by improving your chances of finding the right guy to marry and living happily ever after.  In Chapter 16 of How to Marry the Right Guy, we share the 20 warning signs that you are dating a loser, so you can run before it is too late.

As America’s #1 Love and Marriage Experts and multiple award-winning authors, we are committed to helping audiences around the world answer their burning questions about love, marriage and relationships.  We absolutely love providing you with the practical tips we have learned from our thousands of interviews with successfully married couples in 48 countries, on all seven continents of the world.  In fact, we put hundreds of these tips into our bestselling book, Building a Love that Lasts.

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

Unlike other relationship experts and authors, we have taken a fresh and positive approach in determining that the best way to understand successful relationships is to study successful relationships throughout the world.  What we have learned is that you can’t understand success by studying failure--you learn about success by studying success.  We focus on what’s right about relationships and marriage, rather than what’s wrong.

Through our many blogs, books, articles and interviews, we try to provide inspiration and guidance to readers around the globe.  Our positive approach and research findings have lead to hundreds of worldwide media interviews including on NPR, FOX, NBC, CBS, ABC, CBN and FamilyNet, two PBS Specials, and the Lifestyle Magazine Show.
