Delaware marriage therapyI hope that you had a wonderful holiday season and have started 2017 off on a positive and relaxing note!

Even though the New Year has begun, there is still time to set goals and assess your priorities.  Did you and your partner set any relationship goals for the year yet? Here are a few reasons you should make your relationship a priority in 2017 – and thereafter!

Isn’t It About Time?

Focusing on your relationship is important during any phase of life.

Partners who are still dating can really dive deep into the potential of their relationship, making this a big year for moving forward. Newlyweds can set the standard for growing a strong relationship for the rest of your days. Couples who have been married for years can grow distracted by parenting or their career and often need a reminder about why their connection is so important to their happiness, success, and personal growth.

No matter how long you and your partner have been together, let’s make 2017 your year! Making your relationship a priority can really put your love into full gear, or give you and your partner a fresh look at your life together.

We Will Grow in 2017… Will Our Relationship?

When we let other areas of our life become our priority, our relationship can come to a standstill. This is dangerous territory: we are always growing, learning, and changing as people. If we continue to grow without growing in our relationship, there is a possibility that we will grow apart from our partners.

This is a dangerous road to go down; walk through this year with your partner, and learn to grow together.
