What Nobody Tells You About Happy Relationships

This post is brought to you by fewer fights, more laughter, the letter m, and Modern Married. 

Have you ever tried to find resources for making your relationship Really Great? As in not just “fine” or “good” but THRIVING? There are piles of books about how to deal with cheating or divorce. But not nearly enough on how to strengthen and find bliss in your marriage.

If you have a partner and you’re done with it being “ok” and you’re ready to go from so-so to so good, then my friend Maggie is your girl. She shares such good, actionable advice on long-term relationships. She teaches her people how to argue in a way that actually results in closeness and connection. She reminds us to make deposits in our emotional bank account every single day.

No matter if you’re married, living together, or living apart and super committed – Maggie can help. I think you’ll love what she has to say!
