Why Lasting from Talkspace?Lasting from Talkspace is a relationship counseling company and creator of the #1 relationship health app, as seen on The Today Show, Good Morning America, and many more. Our product helps millions of couples nurture and repair their emotional connection.
In light of America’s 45% divorce rate, we believe that relationships are one of the most important and pressing issues of our time. Consider the following:
- Research has shown that relationships are as vital to your overall health as diet and exercise. People in healthy relationships live 10 years longer on average, and marriages in distress can lead to a variety of physical health issues;
- The key factor in lifelong happiness and satisfaction is maintaining long-term, healthy relationships;
- Most importantly, the leading factor in the cognitive, emotional, and social development of children (and the future generation) is relationships (i.e. the emotional connection between the two parents).
