“Attacking each other instead of the problem”
“If you continuously attack each other, you’re slowly stripping your partner of their dignity,” says Konkin. “I always encourage couples to put their issues on the table and keep your focus on that. If you just throw a bandage on top of a dirty wound, it’s not going to heal correctly or fully. It’s when you pour the antiseptic solution on the wound that it’s purified and can heal well.”
For instance, lack of communication is a popular pitfall in long-term relationships. “I always hear clients says, ‘We don’t know how to communicate,’” says Konkin.
“Remember the movie Jerry Maguire with Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger? The line that got the most attention and was probably repeated most often was, “You complete me.”
It’s hard for me to even type that line without rolling my eyes.
While that might be a sweet line for a sappy country song, it reflects a deeply flawed approach to relationships. No human being “completes” us— not even our spouses. ”

In Tina’s view, talking for an hour once a week isn’t enough to truly help couples reset their expectations and resolve their disputes. That’s why she offers a resource for couples, an in-depth program where couples spend a long weekend learning, growing, and healing. Whether you’re seriously dating or in a committed marriage, you can attend the Relationship Lifeline to give yourself the relationship knowledge and self-awareness necessary to move forward and avoid common mistakes in building communication and trust.
“We have put up walls made of one rock at a time,” Tina said. “We harden our hearts to not feel that same pain again. Our program is about tearing that down so we can have healthy relationships.”
‘Cyber Affairs’ Rupturing Long-Term Relationships
Marriage and Family Relationship Expert Cites Online “Cheating”
as Increasing Factor Behind Divorce and Break-ups
(NEWPORT BEACH, CA) With the rise of digital technology, access to whatever our hearts desire has become nearly instantaneous. It allows us to connect, for the cost of an Internet connection, with old friends and acquaintances – anytime and from virtually anywhere. While the positives are clear to see, a darker picture is starting to take shape: the rise of so-called ‘cyber affairs’.
So, what’s behind the growth of these digital dalliances? Author and speaker Tina Konkin, who has witnessed the phenomenon first-hand through her acclaimed Newport Beach, California-based counseling program, Relationship Lifeline, says one need to look no farther than interactions on social media or the worldwide web.
A 2010 survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) found that four out of five lawyers used evidence derived from social networking sites in divorce cases. In addition, it’s estimated that 1 in 5 divorces today have a direct correlation to amorous encounters and relationships cultivated online.
“The allure of cyber affairs for many is the minimal effort needed to engage,” said
Ms. Konkin. “More often than not, we’re seeing these cyber affairs stem from a reconnection with people in their past, where individuals are essentially transported back in time and start to form a romantic bond through past experiences they’ve shared. Unfortunately, I’ve experienced it myself.”
Another driver of digital infidelity: the casual attitude and easy access to pornography. According to a survey published in the Journal of the American Psychological Association, 86% of men are likely to click on Internet sex sites if given the opportunity. Furthermore, according to an AAML poll of 350 divorce attorneys, two-thirds reported that the Internet played a significant role in break-ups. More than half of those cases involved an excessive interest in online porn.
“The overwhelming number of pornographic websites and chat rooms have played a significant role in disrupting the exclusivity of human sexuality,” said Ms. Konkin. “The low barrier of entry allows individuals to get what they want, when they want it. It’s become Pandora’s Box.”
Although the conversation surrounding ‘cyber affairs’ may be uncomfortable for some, the world-renowned couples relationship expert maintains that such dialogue is necessary because of the threats they pose to long-term happiness and growth. By raising awareness around the issue, she hopes to be a catalyst for those conversations and help people recognize these online encounters for what they are – affairs.
