The ONE Secret That’s Ruining Your Relationships

The ONE Secret That’s Ruining Your Relationships

According to recent research, approximately 25% of couples who receive marriage therapy report that their relationship is worse two years after ending therapy, and up to 38 percent of couples who receive marriage therapy get divorced within four years of completing therapy.

Why is this?

Watch this short video where Dr. Daniel Amen reveals the ONE secret that is ruining your relationships.

As you can see, the inner workings of the brain influence all we do in our relationships.

Your brain decides who is attractive to you, how to get a date, how well you perform on the date, what to do with the feelings that develop, how long those feelings last, when to be committed, and how well you perform as a partner and a parent.

Ask yourself, are you:

  • impulsive or thoughtful?

  • rigid or flexible?

  • anxious or confident?

  • negative or hopeful?

  • short tempered or patient?

  • able to admit problems or in denial?

  • coordinated or bump into walls?

  • attached or afraid?

  • faithful or a wanderer?

When the brain works right, it helps you be thoughtful, playful, romantic, intimate, committed and loving with your partner. When the brain is dysfunctional, it causes you to be impulsive, distracted, addicted, unfaithful, angry, and even hateful, thus ruining chances for continued intimacy and love.

It is clear that healthy brain function is associated with more loving and sexual relationships, while poor brain function is associated with more fighting, less sex, and higher divorce rates.

SPECT scans help couples understand the underlying medical reasons for their marital and relationship problems in a multitude of ways, including:

  • Demonstrate that symptoms and behaviors are not imaginary, thereby reducing emotional pain and stigma
  • Couples gain a better understanding of what is actually going on in the brain of their loved one
  • Helps to target treatment specifically to your brain

This understanding helps couples by:

  • increasing compassion
  • increasing patience
  • decreasing shame and blame
  • decreasing conflict
