Escape Your Busy Routine

Long-lasting love is attainable only by deliberately carving out time to prioritize yourself, your partner, and your relationship.

Life is often busy and chaotic, with many obligations competing for your time and energy.

The biggest cause of separation and divorce is not high conflict or betrayal. More often, it is a slow steady decline that occurs when passionate partners who love each other start to feel like roommates managing a household together.

Roommate Syndrome is the silent relationship killer.

But luckily Roommate Syndrome is not a deadly disease. It can be escaped or avoided in as little as three days.

The best way to revive your relationship is to choose a reputable program, sign up for it, and then protect the time on your calendar to make sure you follow through.

Laura Silverstein is a certified Gottman couples therapist with over 30 years of experience helping couples find happiness.

For the first time ever, she is teaming up with her husband to offer a couples retreat in the Poconos.

You and your love can unplug, unwind, and revive your relationship in the breathtaking Pocono Mountains at the Himalayan Institute (located in northeast PA, only 2.5 hours from New York and 3 hours from Philadelphia).
