This Is The Key To A Successful Marriage

What love is, is embracing your partner for the way they are, and not complaining about the way they are.
- John Gray  

On the most recent episode of my podcast, Unplugged with Brandon Steiner, I spoke with relationship counselor, lecturer and author, John Gray.

In his new book Beyond Mars and Venus: Relationship Skills for Today's Complex World, John Gray talks about the keys to maintaining a successful marriage. More then anything he stresses the importance of having a relationship that is successful in consistently creating intimacy. 

Throughout this entire conversation there is one word that should stand out to you, anticipation. Both men and women become satisfied when they are able to anticipate satisfaction.

He explains how when a women is planning to go on a date, she will anticipate that date days before hand. She will think about her outfit, her schedule for the day, and most importantly if the man will fulfill the romantic rituals expected such as buying flowers or holding the car door. This anticipation is what will lead to increased estrogen in the body, which will lead to a more intimate relationship.

For men on the other hand, if you are at work and anticipate making a lot of money from a job, or are an athlete anticipating success on the field, your testosterone will double!

My favorite piece of advice from John, is his reasoning as to why wives should let their husbands watch more sports. He proclaims that this will bring men back to their days of participating in athletics, and will help increase their testosterone level, which will lead to a more enjoyable evening!

There is so much to learn from this, and I can't stress enough the importance of maintaining a healthy relationship with your significant other, because the effects of that relationship will effect every other aspect of your life.

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor Odunga and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at and later he gave me his Whats-App number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. My husband and I reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this: If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.
