The 5 Core Conversations For Couples

Welcome to the Bulitts

From the Bulitts

From our differing vantage points and often contrasting perspectives, we have seen up close families struggling with life’s most difficult challenges. At the same time, we have weathered our own challenges at home, raised four daughters, two biological and two adopted, and dealt with one child’s mental health and behavioral issues, addiction, running away and pregnancy. What we have listened to, struggled through, and learned about saving a marriage, keeping a family together, or knowing when to call it quits, when to turn to professionals, or when to try tough love, could fill a book. And it has. THE  5 CORE CONVERSATIONS FOR COUPLES is, for better or for worse, what we talk about. We hope it helps you gain some fresh insights into your own relationships and have valuable and more frequent conversations with those you love.
