In fact, “How do I get my partner to change?” is a question that I’m asked very frequently, with exasperation and concern. In this week’s episode of The Intimate Marriage Podcast I’ll share my answer with you.

In this episode, I share:

  • What I told a couple I’m currently coaching who’s determined to improve their relationship (and each of them wants the other to change)
  • The evolution of my desire for my husband to change, and how I shifted my thoughts over time
  • How to get your partner to do exactly what you want them to do, without being a nag

…plus much more.
