What Conversations to Have with Your Future Spouse

A Q&A with the men who wrote the book on communicating in relationships.

Los Angeles, CA - November 27th, 2018 - Charly Ligety and Les Starck met while they were both working at a bank. Les was a newlywed and Charly had just proposed to his girlfriend (now wife), so they bonded over being in similar stages in their relationships. Knowing how wedding planning can take over everything, they decided to create a guidebook to help couples connect and communicate over the aspects that will affect their marriage – rather than just the big day. They wrote the Very Engaging Couples Guidebook, and we sat down with the two friends to get their thoughts on the new book, as well as relationships.

Los Angeles, CA - August 28, 2017 - Taking time for the ones you love is super important! I feel like my man and I are constantly running from one thing to another. When we finally get home, we want to curl up in bed, or on our couch, and watch something on TV, that helps us relax. I literally have two gears: slammed or sleeping. That’s why, when one of my BEST friends, in Hollywood, gifted Rick and I with HIS/HERS workbooks, “Very Engaging”, by Charly and Les, I was THRILLED!

Very Engaging launches!

Los Angeles, CA - July 28, 2017 - As many of you who read my blog regularly know, I recently had a world win romance and wedding just over a year ago. It was truly beautiful, but the path to love isn’t always easy! For some, when you meet the right person there’s that spark or love at first sight moment, and for others it’s something that grows over time. Either way, you’re bound to come up against moments in your relationship where you wonder if you’ve found the right person for you, or you find yourself at odds over an issue- from finances to who gets to sleep on which side of the bed!
