The Way We Connect
We talk to a married couple about what makes their relationship so wonderful, and explore what compatibility really means
Show Notes

Is compatibility something that just happens to us, or do we have to carefully construct and build it over time? Can we tell straight away how happy we might be with someone? If we are right for each other, should it always be plain sailing or does it require constant conscious effort?

In this episode, we talk to Luiz + Barbara, a couple who have been together for ten years and consider themselves the world's happiest couple. But it wasn't love at first sight - their connection grew slowly over time, and their happiness takes conscious effort and work. We talk to them about how they got together, what keeps them together and explore whether an initial 'spark' of attraction is really the best indicator of a successful long-term relationship.
