Marriage vows are being tested worldwide as we are in the midst of a global pandemic that has forced billions of people to stay home. In addition, in the US, we are at 30 million people, unemployed and millions of children trying to school from home by parents emotionally unequipped to take on a burden while they themselves are trying to make sense of their own worlds, fears and concerns. 

Right now – many people are seeing perhaps where their greatest strengths are in their partners as well as their weaknesses. 

People are probably questioning their choices and wondering what to do next once the world re-opens. 

The traditional marriage vows we are all familiar with date back to the Book of Common Prayer, originally printed in 1549 which say 

"to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, till death us depart." 

But how would we know if this person your are dating or married to is really the one, for example, you can be locked up in a house with for two to three months during a pandemic? 

That’s why Ameé has back on today Dr. Stan Tatkin – couples expert and author of many books including Wired For Love and Wired for Dating to talk about his book We Do: Saying Yes to a Relationship of Depth, True Connection, and Enduring Love.  

In this episode, you will hear: 

  • How our unseen fears may be impacting our relationship
  • How attachment affects our style of relating to one another
  • How to “Sherlock” any potential candidates
  • Why a “mission statement” is important for a couple or a person
