In this insightful podcast episode recorded on September 6th, we tackle the often-misguided expectations that can lead to disappointment and disillusionment in long-term relationships. While the passion and commitment of new love relationships are intoxicating, they can promise feelings and behaviors that established relationships may struggle to sustain.
