“Close relationships, more than money or fame, are what keep people happy throughout their lives.” (The Grant Study, a 75-year-long Harvard research project on human development.)

What We Have Been Writing

Cheering for my spouse is awesome.

I love sending her positive uplifting texts with flowers or hearts.

I love telling her how much I love her.

I love all that she does for me, and for how hard she tries to be my cheerleader as well.

The Couple Project

It's so easy to become "the victim" instead of "the solution".

We all have things we can do to improve our relationship, even when our partner isn't holding up their end as well as we would like.

But, improving ourselves is hard, complaining about someone else is much easier!

The Couple Project

Never go to bed angry

Sometimes a disagreement reaches a deadlock.

Set a time to come back and talk again, even if that is tomorrow.

But that doesn’t mean you need to be angry.

Remember why you appreciate your spouse. Cultivate gratitude for them.

Trey & Lea's Stronger Marriages

I think one nice thing my husband and I do in our marriage is always say thank you to each other for taking care of things, even if its for routine, mundane, everyday stuff that has to get done, like dishes or laundry. I think it helps us not take each other for granted.


If you want to improve your relationships,

You have to take a close look at your own flaws and bad habits,

and change YOUR behavior.

Sorry 🤷‍♀️
