Summary Driven to create a resource to help those struggling in marriage, after nearly losing his own over 10 years ago, William Taylor has developed a comprehensive program to help couples avoid divorce and how to be happy in marriage. How do we rekindle the spark in our marriage? Many marriages start off strong, with couples spending most of their time together, and falling deeply in love with little effort. Over time though many of us come to a place where the “honeymoon is over” is over. The romance can begin to fade as the flowers, cards, letters and romantic gestures begin to slow down. Helping couples to rekindle and sustain the spark to create excitement again in their marriage again is one of the benefits of this marriage program. How do we reconnect in our marriage? Some couples get to a place marriage where somehow they end up living parallel lives both doing their own thing somehow going from doing everything together to doing almost nothing together. We don't talk to our spouse openly and deeply anymore, not letting them inside our hearts and minds. The long conversations which once drew us together can become a distant memory… Helping couples to find a path back to reconnection, to overcome marriage problems by explaining what causes us to lose our connection, and how to create a lasting connection is another benefit this program brings. How do we renew our marriage and start over? Even though it was over ten years ago, I still remember it like it was yesterday. I had no idea how I had gotten there—standing in my living room, the house packed in boxes, unsigned divorce papers in my hand. I remember not being able to look at the pictures of my kids with their beaming, playful, innocent smiles. It killed me inside to feel the sheer pain of loss as it finally hit me that I had reached the end of my marriage. After a year of hard work on both sides, my wife and I found restoration and renewal and we fell in love even more deeply. I shudder when I think of how very different my family's lives would have been had we stayed apart. That is what has driven me to develop a program to both show couples how to save a marriage and how to be happy in marriage. Providing a path back to renewal and starting over is one of the purposes of this marriage program. How can this program help “make our marriage work”? Imagine turning the key to your car, and it doesn't turn on. You know that "something" inside is broken but figuring out exactly what and how to fix it to get the car working again is beyond many of us…The same is true for our marriage problems. Whether that one component is feeling understood, accepted, loved, appreciated, beautiful, respected, supported, heard, desired or another component, if even one piece is broken, often our marriage will not work. It’s when we know what pieces are broken and how to get them working again that we can make our marriage work again.
