In This Episode, You Will Learn:

  • When is it time to leave a relationship? Only you and your partner can answer that …but I can help you decide (03:47)
  • But…If you are in a dangerous, sexually coercive, physically or otherwise abusive relationship, this episode is not for you. Please seek crisis help immediately (07:05)
  • Research shows that about 50% of people who leave a committed relationship DO regret it. Maybe it’s not too late to begin again (12:03)

  • This week’s LoveByte (33:58)


Q&A:

  • Is it time for me to leave my relationship? As long as your partner is still willing to play ball, it is really a decision between the two of you. But chances are you need some help to work through the problems…my couples program is designed to give you the tools you need.
