Romantic Delights in the bedroom

Life as we know it is a little uncertain right now.  We are flooded with information, some of it helpful and some of it not so much.  Restrictions have been put in place by the government and plans need to be changed to accommodate those restrictions. While we begin to look at ways to keep ourselves and our families safe, we start to reduce the trips we take and the places we visit.  In doing so, this creates a negative impact on small local businesses who need cash flow in order ...

Home ownership and the effects on our relationship

Home ownership is no longer a right of passage for everyone.  Instead it is something that can be obtained through sheer hard work and bloody determination.  An even then there are many many hurdles to jump over. Having a big fat deposit helps too.  The more we can prove that we are reliable and can afford to pay back the mortgage the higher the chances are of being granted pre approval. First home buyers face extreme scrutiny and have to fill out enough paperwork to wallpaper the...

Having been in the Wedding and Tourism industries for almost 4 years now we...

Empty house

What will life be like for us with an empty nest?  Will our empty house be empty or will it still be full of life?  Will I feel alone and unwanted or will I feel very much needed?  Will I cry all the time or will I be the happiest woman alive?  Am I afraid of what is to come or brave for facing it head on? These are just some of the things I think about from time to time.  Fear of the unknown, not knowing what is to come is something that we all think about at some point...

Empty nest

As I sit here looking out the window at another glorious day here in Canterbury, I reminisce about the time long passed where my babies were completely dependent on me for their well being.  A time where I was their whole world, a world which they thought revolved around them and maybe it did.  A time where I consciously gave up my desire to follow my passion to focus on being there for them 100%.  A time when the last thing you think about is having an empty nest. My entire focus...

Effective communication: are you being heard?

Here is some tips for effective communication. The key to any healthy relationship is effective communication and knowing what you want from your partner and most women don't know what that is.  However they do know what t...

What is a Romantic Getaway?

A Romantic Getaway is one where you are alone together without distractions to spend quality time to focus on each other.  An ideal location would be somewhere secluded, away from noises and free from all distractions that would lead your mind to wander.  Having a getaway with no cell phone coverage is ideal as you are not tempted to look at your Facebook page every hour for updates or receive phone calls or emails. For us, a Romantic Getaway is a place to go to where seclusion is key ...

We argue, we fight but by the end of the night we're alright

Do you argue, fight, disagree with your partner?  No healthy relationship is free from these forms of communication.  If you are in a relationship where there are no arguments, disagreements or fights then you must be in a relationship with yourself. "All couples argue, but it’s the way they argue that determines if their relationship will go the distance". There are times when we may disagree with our partner as we all have our own set of beliefs and values.  We may disagr...

Step parenting: two heads are better then one

Entering an established relationship is not always easy, Russell took his time to get to know my children.  He is a great role model and someone who is kind and considerate.  He has a wonderful set of morals and values and I couldn’t have asked for a kinder gentler man in come into our lives. Following on from last weeks blog post, we set clear boundaries early in our relationship.  I would continue to enforce discipline and parent my children, he would be there to support me.&n...

The challenges step parent families face

The challenges step parent families face can be fraught with varying degrees of highs and lows.  For someone to come into an already established family and fit in mid way through is like a runner jumping into a race half way through and expecting to win the race.  It takes a very special person to love a child that is not their own especially when the child is a pre-teen and starting to become rebellious. When I met Russell, my children were 8 and 9.  They had had the luxury of al...

What will your relationship legacy be?

A legacy is something that is left behind when you die.  Whether it be money, personal property or something handed on for future generations.  Your legacy is what is left behind for generations to come.  How do you want to be remembered by your loved ones? Money, status, wealth, it all means nothing if you treat those around you poorly.  People will not remember the sculpture in your hallway, nor will they remember the pattern on your curtains or the brand of shoes you wore....

How to apologise to your wife

Like all husbands I have recently done something dumb to upset my wife which has got me thinking of a fantastic blog idea.  I am currently studying the Bachelor of NZ Business and have delved into a bit about human physiological behaviour.  Although I have a psychology background in my day job, I will discuss some aspects of marriage that can lead to divorce and suggest ways to reduce the damage. An ineffective apology can be the source of extensive damage in many marriages.&...

Do you wear your diamond engagement ring to bed?

If you wear your diamond ring to bed then you might be surprised to learn that by doing so you could end up losing the diamond while wearing it.  When set correctly into a ring a diamond will stay in position for thousands of years.  The only way a diamond can come loose is if it is pushed or pulled out of the setting.  This is therefore the responsibility of the wearer to ensure they are not being rough with their jewellery. Jewellers need to strike a balance of making a claw set...

Do you behave like lovebirds?

Their name comes from the parrots' strong, monogamous pair bonding and the long periods which paired birds spend sitting together.  The term 'Lovebirds' is also used to describe a couple in the honeymoon phase of their relationship.  Or at any stage of their relationship when they are 'Loved Up'. Like Lovebirds, generally when a couple meet they spend long periods of time together over the course of their relationship.  They enjoy doing things together and look forward to the next...

The secret of long and happy relationships

Acceptance and understanding play important roles in relationships.  Knowing when your partner needs patience is key in supporting a healthy relationship where love and understanding thrive.  How many times have you found yourself quick to judge a situation before knowing the full story?  We are all guilty of doing this at some stage.  Take the time to listen to your partner and hear what they are saying.  Don't be quick to respond, instead ask them what you can do to he...

If you could change one thing in your relationship what would it be?

Two days ago I posted this question on our Facebook page and received a huge response not only in terms of an organic reach but also in the amount of replies and the varied responses received.  We all have one thing that we are unhappy with in our relationship.  It's what makes us human. There are things that annoy us and things that grate on our nerves.  Some things we learn to let go of, they are not as significant as others.  The big things in relationships that cannot be ...
