Welcome to the Revive Your Midlife Marriage Podcast
This podcast is for women in midlife that want to revive a floundering marriage.
Often, when the kids leave, a new phase of marriage begins. Unfortunately, many couples struggle to nurture this new phase because either they don’t know what to do, or they have become apathetic about their marriage and resign themselves to accept things as is, even when what is, is less than satisfying.
In this podcast, I will be covering many topics related to the midlife marriage relationship, helping you look at what isn’t working and giving you solid tips on how to revamp your marriage and make it thrive.
Whatever you are struggling with in your marriage, you are not alone. Join me as I help you REVIVE YOUR MIDLIFE MARRIAGE.
