Performance Review Your Marriage?

Uploaded: Oct 21, 2015
A recent Wall Street Journal article, A Performance Review May be Good for Your Marriage, suggests doing periodic marriage performance reviews. I support this idea.

At times a small correction sooner than later is akin to redirecting an ocean liner or freighter -- getting a little off course leads to a different destination, while a small turn of the wheel will get you back on track.

Without these minute corrections however, you could grow apart, and months and years go by and your marriage suffers.

You're welcome to take my Marriage Fitness Quiz which will indicate how you're doing in several key areas needed to have a healthy marriage.

Make time soon for your review and actually do it. If it's not going well, we are here to help.
We can't do it without you.

Well Chandrama, it's a great thing you had made public. Often we find couple having no fun or compatible in their life but they just can't let the relationship broken. Marriage Fitness quit will work great at this instance. My concern after a great research says, lack of time is the main problem and spending a lot time with each other can heal everything. At first when I saw your article, it seem like rubbish but a part of me says this quiz may work to make relationship even more stronger. I appreciate.
