This month I focused on the importance of fresh starts in a relationship.
If you missed all the great content on my social media, you can catch up here!
Many of us might be feeling frustrated or resentful of our partner now that we’ve been quarantined for a few weeks with them. It’s probably time for a relationship reset: https://annmariekelly.com/2020/04/10/tips-for-resetting-your-relationship/
How to make your relationship a priority
During these days of covid-19 confinement, everyone’s patience is wearing thin. “I just can’t look at him another day” and “she’s driving me crazy” are just two comments I’ve heard from friends lately. Lost wages, lack of freedom and constant contact with spouses and children is making you and I stressed, depressed, and aggravated.
Take a deep breath. We’ll get through this!!!
In the meantime, and while you’re breathing deeply, remember to make your relationship with your sweetie a priority. Not sure what that means or how to do it? Check out this post for details: https://annmariekelly.com/2020/04/17/marrige-during-covid-19/

Are you thinking about having the Five Year Marriage conversation?
It is a process and something you have to work on for your fresh start!
“Think of it like planting flowers in the spring. Very often the ground is hard and compact. It doesn’t absorb water. As a result, you can’t plant anything. You can’t even get a shovel into the dirt. If you want to plant something, first you have to “condition” the ground with water. Then, when it’s aerated, you can start planting.”
I’m so excited to share my marriage story in this month’s Philadelphia Magazine!
‘Different Marriages’ were the topic of this month’s COVER STORY!! – it includes my very own Five-Year Marriage ® story!
