"How often have we heard? Boy meets girl. They soon realize they love each other, get married, and live happily ever after. But does that really happen? How long before boy and girl start fighting and end up divorced? Is there hope for 'happily ever after' after all the fights, tears, and fears? Yes. Marriage is hard work and most couples struggle day in and out to stay together. You don't have to do it alone. I specialize in helping couples re-capture that love and friendship that brought them together so they can have true happy ever afters."
