Relationship Expert Bree Gives Women Relationship Help
Bree Maresca-Kramer M.A. sat down with us to give our readers the relationship help they need for their unfulfilling relationships. As a relationship expert Bree provide practical and simple relationship help that anyone can readily use.
What is the biggest mistake women make in a relationship?
Many women fall into the common trap of trying to “fix” their man. They do this because they see something is wrong and want to make it right. They mistakenly believe that if they can change him or his behaviors the relationship will be great. This always backfires because the man will end up feeling emasculated and resentful and will ultimately pull away from her and the relationship.
How can a woman deal with something that is “wrong” with her man without trying to fix him?
It is about realizing that each of us have our own issues that need healing. When we understand this, we shift from looking at our partner as someone who needs to be fixed to a person who has some unhealed places. It is up to each individual person to heal those places themselves. However, if it is something like poor communication skills, that is something that can be easily learned not fixed. I work with couples all of the time on that one and have found that men want to make their woman happy and learn how to do that!
What can a woman do to keep the spark alive in her marriage?
This is a great question and really fun to do! Keeping the spark alive does not have to mean big grand romantic gestures-those are great once in awhile-but the spark stays alive with the little everyday things. Putting a sexy note where your husband will find in during his day, surprising him with his favorite meal, texting ‘Hey sexy man-I’m thinking of you’, and having a date night once a week are all great spark keepers! When you treat your husband like he was your secret lover, you will keep the passion going strong.
When there are children in the marriage it makes it hard to keep the romance going what do you suggest?
The most important thing to remember that is if your marriage fails, your family falls apart and your children will suffer. Therefore, making romance and passion a priority benefits your husband, yourself, and your children! It is about making the time to look into one another’s eyes with love, hug, kiss, and make love. All of these things are the elements that keep the marriage a love-filled marriage instead of becoming a love-less marriage.
Why do so many married people end up having affairs?
There are many factors but the consistently greatest one is trying to get your unmet needs met somewhere else. When a man feels that he is not the greatest guy in his wife’s eyes anymore he will attract that validation in another woman. When a women feels that she is not beautiful and desirable to her husband, she will attract that attention from another man. Unless you are talking about someone who is a sex addict or incredible lacking a moral character, most affairs start from this point of looking elsewhere for what is not being fulfilled within the marriage.
