Ever thought about replacing your spouse?

Maybe you’re unhappy with the way you’re being treated or feel like you’re being taken for granted. Or maybe, you’ve simply fallen out of love.

It happens.

Perhaps ten years ago, you were madly in love. You finished each other’s sentences. Your needs, values, and future plans were in perfect alignment.

But now? You’ve grown apart.

You’ve developed different interests and your lives have evolved in different directions. And sometimes, you have the bittersweet sense that you’re coming home to a stranger.

Oh sure, you know how they like their eggs cooked, their preferred brand of toothpaste, and a hundred other idiosyncrasies. But there’s something missing.

Bottom line, you feel unfulfilled. You know there’s someone better out there who would be more appreciative, more attentive, more supportive — and you yearn to spend time with them.
