Erik Newton surfed through a mischievous youth, feeling truly alive. Then, adulthood and responsibility happened. Remembering a teacher who had urged him to reach out and create what he wanted in life, he found himself at a major turning point. Leaving his divorce-focused law practice behind, he still believed in love. Today, he has a unique, real-world comprehension of what makes one marriage thrive and another fall apart. Ultimately, his calling to help couples build healthy relationships superseded his legal career, and he is now podcasting and publishing an online magazine about relationships.
