Today we’re speaking to Terry Gaspard, author of The Remarriage Manual - How to Make Everything Work Better the Second Time Around. We discuss expectations, trust, communication and the vital importance of making your spouse a priority…especially when there are step children involved.
Terry discusses the wide variety of challenges she and so many face when remarrying and how to avoid the high 2nd marriage divorce rate by consciously and intentionally communicating about all of it. We discuss the importance of owning and ditching your first marriage baggage, communication around money, trust, sex, and kids. Terry share the challenges of merging two families with different belief systems, cultures and ways of navigating finances, conflict and so much more…and the immense joy in doing it better the second time around!
