“It takes one to make a marriage. What I mean by that is each person has to take responsibility for making changes.”
This week on I HAVE TODAY with Diane Forster, we’re talking with Todd Creager, Marriage and Sex Therapist, and an expert in divorce-proofing your marriage. With the current rate of divorce for first marriages falling somewhere between 50-75%, this is such a prevalent topic. I know personally what it’s like to live in a marriage that is falling apart behind closed doors, and I know that I’m not alone. So, whether you are in a toxic relationship, you want to prevent your relationship from going down that path, or you just want to take notes for the future, you don’t want to miss out on this episode!
“The reason we disconnect [from our spouse] is that we are trying to protect ourselves from something. Fear of rejection, fear of abandonment, fear of losing power to the other person. There’s all kinds of reasons why we disconnect. So the first thing that this person should do is ask themselves, get curious about themselves. What am I afraid of?”
The Intention of Today’s Episode: I have to day to fall in love with my partner all over again.
Below you’ll find three practical ways to divorce-proof your life.
1- Utilize the EED (Emotional Energy Diffuser) – Breathe. Think. Praise
2- Stop having expectations of the way you want somebody else to act based on what you’re doing for them.
3-Be more playful and less serious.

“If it takes no effort to fall in love, it takes no effort to fall out of love. It’s about the intention that we set. The key is to fall in love by creating it.”
Each week, we end our episode with a mantra meditation. This is a fun, transformative way to apply the concepts we discussed in this episode. The most effective way to create more love, money, success, and happiness in your life is to tell your subconscious a different story. Start accepting the story of what you really want. Listen to the meditation at the end of the episode, and start changing your story today.
“You have the power. Practice seeing yourself as an interpersonal center of influence. Think about what you could do to bring out the best in your partner. Realize you have the power and that we oftentimes tend to underutilize it, so use it.”
