Happily Ever After is Just the Beginning – Conquering the Biggest Challenge to Marriage

Having a successful marriage is a balancing act, much like riding a bicycle. You must develop the ability to even out the pull between keeping yourself separate and disappearing into togetherness. This is the biggest challenge to marriage that there is. But, much like riding a bike, once you get a feel for that balance, maintaining it becomes relatively effortless. The key to finding this equilibrium is to know how and when to ‘give’ and when you need to say ‘no’. Dr. Berit Brogaard, Director of the Brograard Lab for Multisensory Research at the University of Miami and the author of On Romantic Love reveals how to master this process so you can have a successful marriage.
