A Royal Relationship?

April 25, 2007

I was reflecting on the news recently about Prince William ending his relationship and the journalists following his then girlfriend. And how this seems to have brought his mother and father’s relationship back into discussion…

Relationships can be challenging at the best of times, bearing in mind that each of us is totally unique and we come from different parenting and sometimes different backgrounds, race and/or religion. Siblings will experience childhood differently from us so each of us takes our own memories into a relationship. At the same time there are other relationship memories that we take into the current relationship.

In hetrosexual relationships, there is also the difference of man and woman. So the added pressure of having a relationship with a member of the royal family must put enormous pressure on the relationship. Another pressure on a relationship is children and here in England there is pressure being put on parents to be better parents. This therefore leaves less time for the couple’s relationship. In fact I was featured in The Times on this very subject:

So why do we want a relationship? I believe we are relational beings…we need to be in relationship with another.

But good relationships don’t just happen we must work at them. How do we do that…with more awareness, giving and receiving well, maintaining self-worth, gratitude, being true to ourselves, communicating effectively…no He said/She said…just as I write about in my book “Rekindle the Magic in Your Relationship ~ Making Love Work”…for a free chapter and weekly relationship help and hot tips please visit my website www.rekindlethemagic.com.
