Relationship review: How much investment did you put in to 'us'?

Great relationships don’t just happen – they need an investment of a couple’s time, energy and focus.

Psychotherapist M. Gary Neuman believes that the major cause of marital breakdown is emotional infidelity, when other things or other people take away the energy from your relationship.

Think back over the past year. Did your partner actually get the best of you, or did they get the dregs after everyone and everything else had used up all your time and energy?

Investing in ‘us’ means making your relationship a priority and giving it the attention, focus and time that it needs to grow. What will you do to invest in ‘us’ for 2015?
