    Trust After Cheating -  How To Trust Your Spouse Again   Trust between spouses is important in a relationship and essential for relationship to last. Trust after cheating would be hard and needs some real work to recover.  Trust in a relationship is varied; there are several aspects to it. In order to help you have confidence to trust again, you should do a little experiment to determine how much you still trust your spouse. Trust after cheating is certainly the strongest blow that will probably threaten your…

    Life is full of distraction. Everywhere you look something’s vying for your attention. Take your kids to school, ride the train to work, log onto the Internet and you’ll see things aimed at taking your money, focus, and time. One thing about a world full of attention clutter, our brain can become numb to it so we get to where we don’t even see it. But don’t kid yourself, there’s a drawback to this numbness. It also means we don’t really experience the other things in our life. Human nature seems to crave routine and structure. One way we can combat…

  • Conflicts with teachers are risk factor for school shootings

    27 Aug 2014 | 6:21 am
    Researchers conducted a systematic literature search of all the available studies dealing with school shootings. The aim of the analysis was to clarify which social dynamics in the social network of perpetrators can be observed in advance as playing an important role in school shootings. Up to now, researchers had assumed that bullying between peers and the social exclusion of the perpetrators were the most prominent factors in school shootings. This study shows, however, that in many cases conflicts with teachers seemed to be a decisive factor in the school shooting cases investigated.

Life doesn’t simply end at Happily Ever After, we don’t really ride off in a horse drawn carriage, or fade away in a musical number. This is for all the people that found a person they genuinely love but are now in the “comfortable” stage of that relationship.

    Here in the UK the latest set of immigration figure have come out. In the last 12 months net legal immigration was nearly a quarter of a million. One in eight of the population was now born outside the UK. One in four children born last year in the UK have mothers born elsewhere. IMHO Immigration at these levels IS changing the nature of the society and large sections of the immigrant population are not even attempting to integrate. I know that the absolute number of immigrants into the USA each year will be higher but how do the percentages compare. What if anything can / should developed…

    A poignant film about the definition of success. About Schmidt follows Warren R. Schmidt (Jack Nicholson), a veteran actuary of the Woodmen of the World insurance company in Omaha, Nebraska. Schmidt is a polite, measured man surrounded by people who are commonly quite the opposite. There are flashes of his broad, mischievous smile and roguish charm, but Nicholson reels in his iconic charisma, he effortlessly becomes the respectable, disconcerted Middle American and is as magnetic and watchable as usual. The film begins in a desolate office as Schmidt stares at a clock that adorns a bare, grey…

    This is a guest post from Emma Merkas of Couples Massage Courses. We all know we should go on regular dates with our spouse, right? The same way we know we should eat more Brussels sprouts and floss our teeth every day. It’s good for us. More than that, date night is actually enjoyable (for the record, so are Brussels sprouts if you pan fry them with some lemon juice and kosher salt!) but you wouldn’t know it the way some couples manage to avoid it. The problem with date night is that we humans love the comfort of routine. Stepping outside our little daily schedules takes a bit of effort.

Before we left the house, for some reason, we decided it would be funny to dress up like nerds. I take that back. It wasn’t dressing as nerds as much as it was finding random, wild clothes in our closet that absolutely didn’t match. We walked to the restaurant where we were meeting our friends and giggled as we saw people staring strangely at us. After all, I was wearing big work boots, 80’s shorts, a dress up shirt, and a headband while my wife…

    I hear it all the time.  I hear it from mothers.  I hear it from fathers.  It’s a warning intended to keep a daughter safe that comes with a lot of shame lurking in the background. “Boys only want one thing.” The subtext is more specific. A boy only wants you for what he can take from your body. He will lie.  He will romance you.  He will get what he can and disappear.   Boys/men cannot be trusted. You aren’t worth anything to a boy other than sex. Don’t “give it up” because once you do, there’s no reason for him to keep pursuing you or treating you with respect. It is…

    By:  Lisa Hayes Yeah, you read that title right.   I read a lot of articles about what men want, written by women.   Often times those articles read a lot like fantasy. Being generous, a lot of those articles are written about a more enlightened man-model than most men in the real world.  It’s not that men are dogs or stupid.  They aren’t.  However, generally speaking they just aren’t that complicated. Men are much more black and white than women.  We know that.  They get lost in a lot of complicated emotional nuances.  Women thrive in the grey areas.  As a relationship…

    Are you now stuck in a spiral of fighting about the same things again and again? We want to share an excellent article by Sue Johnson, the leading researcher in the field of attachment theory, who describes what’s going on underneath the same old fight. This is the challenge that most couples face: when they fight the same battle again and again they build up resentment and anger, and end up solving nothing, because they don’t listen to each other’s hidden needs.  Sue says: “The couples who come to see me to repair their relationship often tell me that they really…

     Still Waiting for Prince Charming? Sometimes, some people hope and believe that falling in love will solve all frustrated needs experienced before. The assumption is: “this person will be in my life, and all my needs for support, companionship, sex and emotional stability will be covered….” We find this hidden assumption as the core theme of love stories; of plenty of histories where the other person is seen as the source of all comforts.  Nothing wrong considering your loved one the only one who can repair you and make your happy….this is the core belief we all…

If suppressing angry verbal confrontations is a good thing, it was because we wanted to replace them with respectful conversations! What…

Victoria is a beautiful harbor town with a lot of history and tons to do, so naturally, it’s swarming with tourists from all over the world (including ourselves).

    You should know that my ego is huge. Really huge. Bigger than yours. It’s probably the biggest (and most handsome) ego out there. And that’s great, because I’m a writer. But it’s also terrible, because I’m a writer. Ego is something we’re taught to suppress. We’re trained from a young age that humility is a virtue to strive for, and ego will get us in trouble. Ego is the root of bad decisions, right? It blinds us to the truth by keeping our focus on our attributes and successes. The problem I have with this philosophy is that ego is inherently tied to self-confidence, and by…

If small town sports reporters didn’t get paid in pocket lint and work til 1AM every night, I’d still be doing it. After the first game I ever covered, I wandered down to the home team clubhouse to interview the manager. He’d been ejected in the 7th inning, and stormed off the field with third base under his arm.  I was both excited and terrified to meet him. He was sitting on a cooler in his office, wearing…

In fact, in order to prove why you shouldn’t go on “The Bachelor,” I’ve run the numbers. 0.7% – Based on the show’s past history, that’s your chance of actually getting married.

It’s a step forward for a magazine that prides itself on objectifying women in every way possible. While there is more work to be done (I mean, what actually goes on in the Playboy mansion),…

Why wouldn’t she follow him? …Oh, wait, it doesn’t matter. “It might not be a good idea to start out a relationship when you’re feeling physically ill about the choices you’re making,” Michelle observes as Graham mops puddles of sweat of himself. Nonetheless, when AshLee asks him to take the rose, he does.

Yes, you read that correctly – he faked his own death. To get out of marriage. Extreme, no? How did he pull this off? Not very well.

But ladies I gotta tell you — if you aren’t experiencing and enjoying orgasm in your marriage bed, then your marriage bed (and your marriage) is likely suffering. Big time. (For you husbands reading this, pay close attention.  I have gems in here for you too.  And hopefully by the end of the post, you and your wife will both run with abandon toward her orgasmic pleasure).
  • The Safety Net of Romance

    11 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Cultivating romance into your marriage on a regular basis helps you stay connected heart-to-heart when you don’t see eye-to-eye. Every marriage goes through seasons of conflict, and it’s usually quite intense when it happens. Things can be going along really well and your spouse says something that doesn’t sit right in your mind. So, you ask a question that leads to more tension because either the question isn’t heard clearly or it isn’t understood. So, the answer isn’t at all what you wanted to hear, which leads to more tension and more conflict.

    The American Journal of Epidemiology monitored the health behaviors of nearly 8,900 adults over several years and found that both men and women who got married during that time tended to lose a significant amount of their cardiovascular fitness. Most husbands and wives don’t need a study to tell them that being married might derail their fitness regime. As a seasoned personal trainer, I’ve listened to many men and women stress over balancing their career, marriage, family, and health. Though it may be difficult, staying fit is a most worthwhile endeavor for married couples. Research…

Only a little over half of first-time, full-time students—59%—graduate with a bachelor’s degree, and they do so within six years, not four. Many graduates struggle with loan payback because…

    Note: On Fridays, I am rerunning a series of posts done in 2009. The posts, intended to improve your sex life, are based on Sex on the Brain: 12 Lessons to Enhance Your Love Life by Daniel G. Amen M.D.. In lesson (chapter) 10, Dr. Amen gives “Twelve Ways to Make Your Love Unforgettable”. Many of the twelve are not directly about sex, but all help create a deeper, closer relationship, which can only improve sex. Number six on the list is “Teach your partner what you like”. Teaching your bride how to push all your sexual buttons will make sex better for you – but…

    This is a counter-point to yesterday’s God, Just Fix Her! post. Jack, of Redeeming Marriages with Jack and Janet, did a great post entitled Where Marriage Healing Begins, Jack was eager to work on their marriage, but his wife’s counsellor realised his wife needed to deal with some of her stuff before she could work on the marriage. Janet told her husband ”If I don’t work on me there will be no we.” This is not to say Jack was without faults, or the marriage did not need work. Rather, Janet has significant issues she needed to deal with apart from Jack. No…

When Lori and I got married, she has significant sexual issues from her past. I figured when she dealt with her stuff, life would be grand.

  • Being A Student of Your Wife

    The Generous Husband
    26 Aug 2014 | 12:01 am
    Yesterday I mentioned being a student of your wife. I recommend every man and woman be a student of their spouse. Some of the benefits: The better you know her, the better you can love her. Knowing her better will also allow you to avoid some problems and minimise others. You will learn to time things for the best effect. This could mean so she is more blessed, or it could mean so she is most likely to go along with what you would like to do. You increase your ability to communicate so she hears what you are trying to say. You will be better able to hear what she means when she speaks. Look…

    If you want to lose weight, you can do it. Do the right things and you will lose weight. If you want to get in shape, dedicated training will get you there. You put in effort, you get a result. Cause and effect. One of the great frustrations of marriage is the whole “other person” thing. No matter what you do, she may refuse to go along. She may not see what you did as you intended, or she may not react as you think she should. Cause and effect often seem to fail in marriage, or work in ways beyond our understanding. I think this frustration is one reason men give up. Why bother…

So… It wasn’t that I thought they weren’t a good couple (they were actually adorable together) or even good people (I would invite both of them over for a dinner party if I ever had dinner parties… or cooked). It is that some people really aren’t meant for an institution like marriage. Marriage is NOT for everyone, but I think a lot of us get roped into thinking that…

After reviewing secure, anxious and avoidant mindsets, we concluded that for the avoidant person, being emotionally unavailable is the shield that protects them from emotional pain such as betrayal, abandonment or any kind of insecurity. So, it is not rare to find charming men who play the role of available possible mate, in active search of love, only to make-believe others (and thus cheat also themselves) about their…

  • 5 Pieces of Advice for a Healthy Marriage

    ILBHM
    26 Jun 2014 | 3:08 am
    Advice for a healthy marriage can, in some cases, seem a little obvious. But don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you already “know it all.” Problems in a marriage have a way of creeping up on a relationship without being immediately visible. In fact, when you are involved in a long term relationship, sometimes it’s hard to see the wood for the trees, and it takes only the most basic advice for you to see what is wrong. If this sounds like something that may apply to your current marriage situation, read on! 1) Be honest with yourself about what is and isn’t…
  • Advice for a Happy Marriage – 5 Tips

    Many people think that advice for a happy marriage can be somewhat obvious. But if that’s the case, why are there so many unhappy marriages? It can be very hard to focus on the big picture when you are on the inside of a long term relationship, so hopefully these tips can rejuvenate your marriage. 1) Communicate. A marriage is nothing without communication. But that doesn’t mean arguing and snapping at each other all the time – That’s not real communication. Communication means switching the TV off and sitting down and talking about your day, or letting your partner…

  • What is Mothering?

    Jackie Walker
    21 Aug 2014 | 12:10 am
    I’ve been chatting with a few women about the terms and words to use when I’m writing about The Mothering Revolution. The feelings are that the word ‘mothering’ sounds the least emotive and the most inclusive for the messages and vision that I am creating. The word which came out least applicable is maternal. Finally, if all women can do mothering, then it is not the same as being a mother. I believe mothering is more than a verb, it’s an energy, it’s an essence, it’s a way of being.Click To Tweet - Powered By CoSchedule Have you ever considered these questions before? Do you…

  • Why You Need To Care About Your Personal Brand

    Amy C
    27 Aug 2014 | 6:50 am
    There are common misconceptions about personal branding. First, there is the theory that only businesses or celebrities need to pay attention to their brand because of a commercial or financial incentive. Second, there are some that think personal branding is somewhat narcissistic and calculated, and that if you’re confident and don’t need validation from society then there is no need to be cognizant of your image. Here is some perspective to these trains of thought. 1. What you post today may haunt you in the future Let’s begin by defining what personal branding is. While there are…
  • The 10 Types of Friends You Should Avoid

    Amy C
    19 Aug 2014 | 5:42 pm
    When I was in my early twenties, I had an army of friends. Our common ground consisted of shared interests like clubbing, gossip and being overly dramatic about our romantic problems. I surrounded myself with people who were good-looking, stylish and popular, because subconsciously, that validated me. As I grew older and reached a different stage in my life, my interests started to change. I became a lot clearer of the type of human I wanted to be and the values that I stood for. Slowly, I grew apart from some of my old friends, got closer to others, and made room to welcome new, like-minded…

    Today I am going to talk about pain. Not the typical type of pain I usually discuss associated with heartaches, rejection, or blows to the ego. No, today I’m going to talk about a different kind of pain, one that has nothing to do with you, or me. It’s the pain of losing someone you love. A type of pain where you watch the ripple effect of loss impact your family, and the feeling of helplessness as you’d give the world to take that darkness away. As you are reading this, I will be attending my grandmother’s funeral. I will watch my mother’s heart break. I will see my family weep. I…

    Michael Henry, Common-law with Henny Rebodos, with a 1 year-old son What is love to you? Love is giving someone the power to break your heart, but trusting them not too. What happened when you met her? We met at an event that I was DJing in New York. She stood out to me. I was attracted to her right away. I asked my friends who she was. But I kept it casual while we were there. I ended up getting her number from one of our mutual friends and I messaged her shortly after that night. How was the process of getting to know each other after that? It was never formal. It was really slow, casual…

    The first time I heard the words ‘pulled pork’, I was in LA. It was two or three years ago, it was a balmy, blue-skied day – as it always is in LA, although this particular day was a spring one, so as well as the sunshine there were pastel blossoms everywhere; blooming on tree branches, floating about in the warm breeze and dusting the pavement like confetti, except, thankfully, without a newly married couple anywhere in the vicinity, ruining the vibes. ‘I’m getting the pulled pork bun,’ my mate Tom said, looking up from his menu. We had gone for a late lunch –…

And, also like men, they do that thing where they treat you with indifference, until you withdraw your affections, and then they’re all over you like salt on chips. Aloof, mewing fleabags that jump out from nowhere, hissing, with arched backs and spite-contorted faces, or else cross your path on Friday the thirteenth and curse you with bad luck forevermore.

    When I was a small girl, dressed in moss-green corduroy dungarees, with plaited blonde pigtails (which I had to braid all by myself because my mother was not capable of fashioning hair into anything other than a scrappy ponytail), I loved fairy tales. There was nothing I enjoyed more than having morality served up in narrative form – so that I could digest it whole – accompanied by slightly sinister illustrations, to hammer home the message, whatever it was, and usually it was don’t lie or cheat, work hard, never trust spinsters, (unless they have wings and a wand), remember that your…

    9 Aug 2014 | 3:01 pm
    Parenting with Soul is a book written about the power of beliefs and whether parents want to influence beliefs that create a life for a child based in love and joy rather than fear.  Examples of fear-based parenting are provided as the book reveals common beliefs that lead to worry and guilt in children that prevent them of realizing their full potential.  The book presents ways to develop upon the natural creativity and enthusiasm for life all children possess at birth.  Parenting with Soul asks parents and/or caregivers to assess their level of happiness as a determining factor in their…
  • Bullying and Fear

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    7 Jul 2014 | 5:19 am
    The bully is more frightened than his or her victim in many cases. He attempts to bring sense to his life by rationalizing that his victim is the cause of his actions and suppresses his thoughts of inadequacy and self-hate. In many schools, the bully had previously been on the other end of the stick where he was threatened and intimidated by other children/or adults. In either case, the perpetrator or victim remain equally fearful and filled with beliefs of unworthiness and inadequacy. Until schools and adults begin to realize that the act of bullying involves people that are centered in fear…

  • Mothers Are a Source Of Inspiration

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    11 May 2014 | 3:11 pm
    It’s a truism that mothers are the source of love in our lives, that they show us how we should relate to those people around us, and that in many ways, our relationship with our mother is the foundation of our emotional happiness. So how can mothers inspire their children? A child watches nothing so closely as his parents. Before a baby begins to walk and talk, he is absorbing the things that are going on around him. If a mother is loving and attentive, and above all consistent, then the baby feels safe. Imagine the trauma of not being sure that if you are hungry you will be fed, that…
  • Recover From Addiction

    Most of us have addictions. Maybe we always have to have two cups of coffee in the morning. Or perhaps we like to watch a rerun of our favorite TV show every Saturday night. But some of us have addictions which really hurt us, body and soul. Serious addiction is all about unresolved pain, which is based in fear. We follow a behavior which is designed to numb the pain and rid us of our fear. But it never can, until perhaps it kills us. I know many people that are recovering from addictions, and in particular, a person that is an alcoholic who has been sober for thirty years. His story is an…

Some surmised she’d one day be the stylist for movie stars or other renowned people.

Just look at the images. Google it. See me in the midst of those women. Yeah. So, mom has looked into changing this melodic spelling for me legally. I will keep you updated. DISCLAIMER: I am not a porn star. Melanys is... Continue Reading

    FreeDigitalPhoto.net by Theeradech Sanin We can never talk too much about depression. One in every five people will experience depression- that could be you, it could be your partner, child or parent, and it could be a colleague at work. 1 in 5 people include doctors, psychologists, lawyers, and celebrities, ministers of religion, teachers and counsellors. Knowledge, social status, a particular culture, success nor even a particular faith or religion safeguards a person from depression. Depression is no respecter of persons. I have experienced depression. I was diagnosed with severe…

    The top ten reasons couples decide to call it quits is the subject of a survey conducted by the law firm Slater and Gordon, and published in March 2014. A total of 1,000 divorcees were interviewed on questions pertaining to their reason/s for divorce and the process by which the decision to leave the marriage was made. Some of the information from this surveyed is captured in the infographic below. The results inform us that ‘the average person spends 24 months and 12 days thinking about a divorce before going ahead with it’. This suggests that a majority of couples are able to tolerate…
  • 6 Basic Steps to Effect Change in Your Couple Relationship

    Is your relationship feeling stuck? Do you ever feel like you are ‘talking to a brick wall’ when speaking to your partner about problematic issues? Do you despair that your partner may never change? I speak to many couples where one or both people feel this way. It is very typical of human behaviour that, when faced with a problem, we blame someone else – in couple relationships that ‘someone else’ is your partner. Sometimes your partner’s ‘problematic’ behaviour is glaringly obvious to everyone around them; excessive alcohol, physical violence, explosive anger are just some…

    Talking with Counsellor, Mentor and Business Coach Duncan Morris If you are a keen observer of nature, you will know that transition is part of the natural order of things. We call the transition between day and night ‘twilight’; the transition between summer and winter we call ‘autumn’ or ‘fall’; the transition between being a child and being an adult we term ‘adolescence’. Transition is the movement between the old and the new, sometimes swift but more frequently transition is slow and even painful. It is for this reason that we can…

    Just like the Tsar Bomba, the African bush elephant, and the Naga Jolokia pepper (it’s 10 times hotter than a jalapeno), kisses are a powerful thing. They can give you a natural rosy-cheeked glow, but in some cruel circumstances they can make you look like you’re the victim of a beauty salon disaster. Of course bearded chaps aren’t only to blame for leaving ladies with a visage that looks like it’s been exfoliated with a Brillo Pad, freshly-shaven fellas and those with a mere sprouting of facial hair can act as irritants, too. Unfortunately there’s no magic cure for kissing-induced…

    Venus enters Leo on August 12, 2014 at UT 07:23 UT (3:23 am EDT). Venus is the “love” planet, representing how you give and receive love and affection, as well as what you find aesthetically appealing. Venus also rules “money” as in earning potential and income, as in how you handle money, what you spend it on, and whether you’re attracting it to you or seeing it run through your fingers like water. By transit, Venus brings emphasis to these areas of your life — for better or worse, depending on the sign, house placement and relationship the transit forms…

Even the strongest, most independent and assertive Venus in Cancer people – both male and female — are apt to express themselves in traditionally feminine ways, such as nurturing, caring for and comforting others.

I think all of us would admit that, yet even as we do, after 10 years of being part of over 20 different small groups, I’ve noticed that we don’t like to talk about it very much. That’s not to say we never admit it. When the time is right and mood is set, we’re happy to talk about our lapses in quiet time or our failures to “put God first,” but when it comes to our struggles, feelings of inadequacy, lack of faith or just straight up sin, those things don’t come out all that much. Why is that? Being a Good…

    I remember playing volleyball at a high school/college youth night. At my turn to serve, I yelled across the net, “Alright, pass me the ball.” The teenager across from me was doing back flips and bouncing the ball off his head. Apparently he’d just created a game that involved passing me the ball, but only on his terms. “Um, OK. Can you pass me the ball?” More flips and cartwheels. “Dude, it’s a good thing you’re home-schooled,” I laughed, “Because one day of that on the playground, and you’d have more bruises than…

    25 Aug 2014 | 12:42 pm
    You may remember from my last post, "It's Time for a New Adventure," that I recently moved back to St. Louis, my hometown. I’ve been back about two weeks and just finished my first week of work at my new job. The transition has been mostly easy, and I’ve only gotten lost driving home from work once or four times. I anticipated there would be hard moments or lonely moments — moments when I would miss my friends and the familiarity of Colorado. But I also miss the structure that my life had there. I miss the weekly routine of get-togethers with friends, going to…
  • What I Learned About Singleness From Attending a Mormon Church Service

    Joshua Rogers
    25 Aug 2014 | 7:30 am
    A few years ago, I had a Mormon friend who invited me to attend a service at his church (also known as a "ward"). I had visited a Mormon church service in high school, so I knew what to expect — or so I thought. Upon my arrival, I noticed that everyone there was young. Seriously, it was a room full of 20-somethings. And although there was one young married couple who appeared to be in leadership, none of the women that I saw had on wedding bands. Another thing: During the music, I was pretty sure one woman in the choir kept looking at me, which made me feel uncomfortable…

    Best Ever Love Life

  • Men Try On Spanx for the First Time

    15 Aug 2014 | 4:30 am
      It’s been a long week and we could do with a little light heartedness. And what better way than to see four men try on some Spanx gear. For the uninitiated, Spanx are – to quote the Urban Dictionary “Power panties used by portly people for the illusion of slimness.” In other words, a form of torture that we women don in the hope that not only will they give us smooth lines for any slinky outfit we are wearing, but that somehow we’ll look about x number of stones lighter (but note the use of the word ‘illusion’ in the definition).

Just because cooking isn’t your passion or you don’t have much experience, it doesn’t mean you can’t prepare something wonderful and exciting as an anniversary meal. For a fabulous evening meal for two we suggest something with a slightly exotic theme – Cuban/Mexican.

    Finding true love is very difficult these days and keeping the relationship going is even more complex in this fast-paced and tech savvy world. True love is based on many factors such as likes, dislikes, behaviour, nature of the person, and spirituality. Relationships blossom only when two people strongly believe in each other and generate positive energies that keeps them together. Love can happen any time and with anyone without actually knowing the person initially. What if you find your true love who matches your dreams, hobbies, and likes but has a different spiritual belief? This can…

    Are you keeping score in your marriage? If you are, stop! You might be keeping scores in your head, or written them down on a hidden piece of paper somewhere, or on your phone. Keeping score in marriage will not only make you feel miserable and guilty, and could also be devastating for your marriage. It will keep you waiting like a Lion, ready to  pounce on your predator (in this case your spouse) for any mistakes he/she makes. If it was a genuine mistake, and wasn’t a deal breaker kind of thing, then why hold on to it? Do you want your mistakes to be held over your head? For you to…

    Friendship in marriage builds intimacy, and helps married couples to open up to their  insecurities without worrying about being judged. In a marriage where the couples are, or eventually become, best friends the marriage blossoms. Does your spouse deserve to be your best friend? Yes! You might not agree with us, which is fine. You are still our friend, and its okay to have one or two differences. Who is your best friend? Your best friend has similar interests as yours, shares their joys and sorrows with you, and nicely critiques your bad actions (and vice versa). Would you agree that…

    “Once you get married, your life is over.” You might have heard this statement before, but is it really true? Is marriage the end of your life? It all depends on the way you and your spouse decide to look at it, and the kind of marriage you both desire. Two questions you can ask each other are: What kind of marriage do we want to have? Where do we want to go with our marriage? We believe marriage does not have to be the end of your life!

    Learning how to say sorry to your wife or husband is part of marriage, it’s also part of life! During our first year of marriage, we viewed apologies differently than we do now. Neither one of us was willing to say sorry, it made things worse, and showed how selfish we were! You probably have experienced it too.  In marriage, you will have a fight or an argument with your spouse. Yes, you will sometimes be wrong, accept it! You might feel awful about it, and wonder if you should say sorry; well, you have to! You don’t have to be the one in the wrong to apologize. Sometimes…

    When you start a relationship with someone, you usually think about how much that person makes you happy, and how you want to make them happy too. And you start thinking about his family and his close friends, the people that mean most to him/her, and hoping that you’d get along with them. But then there’s the “x-factor” that comes along: the roommate.  My boyfriend’s roommate is probably also his closest friend.
