The Power of Marriage Goals

Updated: Aug 12

Once we get married, most of us stop having any goals in our marriages. This is one reason marriages often slowly get worse over time, instead of better.

Setting marriage goals, and working towards them is a key to actually making your marriage what you want and having the experiences of love, connection, intimacy and fun you most long for. And can be done in a fun and self-honoring way.


But here's the thing: we are often (subconsciously or consciously) very resistant to setting and especially working towards goals.


This leaves us continuing to have the same old problems in our marriages–or to them getting worse and worse over time, until we feel truly stuck in an unhappy marriage.


But you can change that easily, by understanding:

  • what goals will do for your marriage,

  • why our human brains resist them,

  • and what you can do to overcome and work with your brain –so you can start really changing things in the best of ways in your marriage.

In this episode, you’ll get a 4 step process to set your goals for your marriage and actually reach them, without letting the normal obstacles that come up get in your way (i.e lack of clarity, doubt, discomfort, fear, and our brains innate laziness).


You don’t have to be one of the people who avoid the short-lived discomfort of working towards a goal, only to be left with a lifetime of discomfort in their marriage. No, today we get you all set up to make your marriage one of lifelong love and happiness that GROWs overtime. Don't miss this episode!
