How to fix a relationship with empty nest marriage syndrome

Nothing prepares parents for the transition to an empty nest and it can cause damage to a marriage. In this article I highlight how to fix a relationship and get along with your spouse as empty nesters. As empty nest marriage symptoms are just as profound as empty nest syndrome.

Step #1 Rekindle the marriage

Remember that spark you had with your partner all those years ago when you met? Sit together and reminisce on those days when it was just about you and them.

Remind yourselves that now you are pretty much in the same boat without having the responsibilities of children and errands to do. Talk to each other about what you’ve achieved as a couple and the beautiful family you’ve grown.

Then start dating each other again, enjoy doing more new activities together and revisit the old ones.

Plan a romantic getaway to reconnect if you feel like dating is not enough.

Go over your hopes and dreams you had and make an action plan for those you left.

Step #2 Create new interests and happiness for yourself

Don’t look to your partner to give you happiness and entertainment, you have to also take responsibility of this yourself. Having individual interests makes conversation far more interesting and having your own life, passion and purpose is what makes a person attractive.

Learning how to fix a relationship means identifying actions you can do for yourself and them to create more positivity.

Step #3 Get help if you need to

Couples tend to think that because they may have been married for a long time and managed to stay married that it will all just work out in the end.

But this is something that needs serious attention because this can also be a time when people really begin to wonder why they are still married and the grief, loss depression whatever you want to call it that empty nesters go through can be confused with the marriage and partner making them unhappy. Having someone you trust to talk this out and find solutions can be a life changer for many individuals and couples suffering.

I cover with couples, rebuilding the connection, letting go of negativity and resentment and how to have compassionate engaging conversation. So the couples I work with learn new skills to adapt and enhance their relationship. Whether with me, my marriage makeover audio program or with another forward focused coach you like why not use this time as an opportunity to upskill.

I have helped countless couples become closer suffering with empty nest syndrome symptoms now, even couples or individuals who thought divorce was their only option.

Thank you for destroying my relationship. My partner reached out for support and you advised him that there is nothing for him to heal and that he should send his girlfriend for therapy, like this is your place to tell him. I’ve been through therapy myself and I know how to make the difference between a good therapist and someone who just wants to get more money, and the second seems to definitely be your purpose!

Nicola’s support and advice proved invaluable when my marriage was struggling. Over a series of meetings (online and fact to face, to suit our needs), Nicola helped steer us through a very difficult time. She was always calm, neutral and never made us feel like we had failed or had ‘messed up’. Nicola has a wealth of experience and keeps up with current research, but has a very unique approach to getting you back on track. With regular support materials and just being there, she helped us realise that our relationship could go on; by making us look at ourselves and helping us consider the tools we needed to move forwards. I can honestly say that I don’t think our marriage would have survived such a difficult time without Nicola’s expertise. I often listen to Nicola’s podcasts on Spotify when I’m needing a bit of extra support. Thank you, Nicola

Nicola has been a massive help. I had tried traditional counseling and it had seemed to be moving me further away from what I wanted. After listening to several of Nicola's podcasts I decided to reach out to her. The discovery call was enlightening and she described a process that was more focused on creating a better future vs reliving the pass. From there I went through her Breakthrough Program...All I can say is Wow! Her program and guidance has quickly changed my mindset which has in turn improved all my relationships and overall stress level. I highly recommend working with Nicola and can't thank her enough for her help and care.

My partner and I spent a number of sessions with Nicola discussing our relationship difficulties, both together and one on one sessions. She has been so good to talk to - incredibly helpful and understanding with our problems.My partner and I have come out of this with a better understanding and move love for each other. Nicola has taught us many techniques to use in situations were we feel at odds which has been fantastic. We would recommend Nicola 100% for relationship advice.Thank you so much again.

Nicola's marriage counselling have been life changing for both my partner and I. The learnings have been exponential and have transform us individually and as a couple. We reached out to Nicola at the lowest point of our relationship and about to break apart. Her compassionate and smart yet practical advice and exercises transform us in such a way that we are now at the best we've ever been personally and as a couple.As a result we've decided to get married and book Nicola every year for a couple's check in! I couldn't recommend her sessions more to anyone feeling stuck and wanting to be in a better place. Best investment of time, money and effort EVER. Thank you Nicola, you are an inspiration to me and many others :)
