Almost 100% of marriages “start” with good intentions… but not all last.
Craig’s wife: @pinkerry
We should ensure future generations are given proper examples of healthy relationships.
Two major pivots that affect the health of romantic relationships:
1 - THE ROMANCE DYING
It may be based on an event, date, or season.
Romance is the “sales pitch” of the relationship to put your best foot forward.
You focus more on “them” than “yourself”.
The problem starts when we focus on the “hunt” instead of the “catch” as well.
A “sales pitch” means nothing without continued “customer service”.
2 - THE 50/50 PRINCIPLE (POISON)
It is “common knowledge” that 50% of marriages fail. That stat is mostly used to give up instead of keep going… almost becoming a self-fulfilled prophecy.
Always look for better ways to better the relationship. Find new things to do (like dogsledding - crazy romantic adventure)

If your marriage coin is flipped “down”... then flip it back up!
If your marriage is going “ok”... it won’t last. So keep “dating” (not only date nights). Continue to explore and aim to impress.
