An article of sorts

Standard

I don’t write on here much about getting articles published now and then or that I did my 20th radio interview this morning, but I thought I’d share this little tidbit of an article with you. For National Marriage Week, Feb 7-14, our publisher asked all their marriage authors to answer the question: What is a marriage lesson you’ve learned, and what story illustrates this?

Today I’m doing something new by sharing with you a post by a woman who interviewed me a while back. She made up a great infographic under the title 8 Scientific Ways to Improve Your Marriage Today.

Tell me your thoughts in the comments. Do you agree with her eight? Are there others you would add?

It’s on you to decide whether you’d like this change to be towards a happier, more fulfilling relationship with your spouse.
