  • Homosexuality may help us bond, experts say

    Relationships News -- ScienceDaily
    25 Nov 2014 | 4:47 am
    Homosexual behavior may have evolved to promote social bonding in humans, according to new research. Researchers found that heterosexual women who have higher levels of progesterone are more likely to be open to the idea of engaging in sexual behaviour with other women. Similarly, when heterosexual men are subtly reminded of the importance of having male friends and allies, they report more positive attitudes toward engaging in sexual behaviour with other men. This pattern is particularly dramatic in men who have high levels of progesterone.

    The days have been getting shorter for some time, the powerful light of summer has softened in increments, and the tens of thousands of years of living exposed to the elements drive us to seek shelter, warmth, and the comfort of friendly faces.  Our most important ceremonies of coming together as families and communities take place in the coldest, darkest months (for us in the Northern Hemisphere); food, gifts, being surrounded by familiarity – being acknowledged as an irreplaceable part of something bigger.  All of these feelings validate us on the deepest levels as humans.

    Hello, My husband and I have been married for nearly 11 years, we have children, and I thought we were relatively content. He has always seemed a little secretive, which I put down to him being the only child of an only child. We had had a disagreement a few nights before over handling of our child's behaviour, and afterwards he kept shutting down the window on his laptop whenever I came near. So I checked the history, and it was full of porn, live cam sites, a porn chat forum, an alias email address, a suicide forum and information about bipolar. I tackled him about it all immediately, and…

  • Experience with family verbal conflict as a child can help in stressful situations as an adult

    24 Nov 2014 | 8:18 am
    Individuals who were exposed to intense verbal aggression as children are able to handle intense conflict later in life, new research suggests. "Conflict experiences can be beneficial, by alleviating tension and avoiding conflict escalation, reducing communication apprehension, and contributing to closeness within the relationship," said an author of the study. "Given the diversity of outcomes associated with interpersonal conflict, efforts to understand variation in the experienced negativity of conflict experiences are extremely important in helping people navigate these interactions."

He moved here for a 4 year contract for his job, and I followed. His family is still in Germany, mine is in America. I come from a background of abuse from my mother - general verbal and emotional, but at times physical as well. I currently work in social work as a caseworker for child protection. Generally, my partner and I don't fight. When we do, it's often over something small and non hurtful (you took my keys with you to work) and blows over…

It all starts with one word: intent The goal of gift giving is to show your intent – that you care. There’s the famous saying, “it’s the thought that counts”. And it’s true.

    If you grew up in a family where you experienced injustice, abuse, or a sense of hurt, you’re at a high risk of developing a resent-repeat syndrome in your adult life. You may end up repeating a familiar pattern from your past or you may go 180 degrees to an opposite pattern. These actions result in your own children being deprived in a way that carries your emotional scars forward into the next generation. The rule is this: The more we resent something our parents did, the more likely we are either to unknowingly repeat it, or to try so diligently NOT to repeat it that we go to the…

If you boil down marriage and role it plays in life, it is personal development bootcamp. Yes, it offers up happiness, pleasure, support and encouragement – but that’s not what it’s designed to do. At the end of the day, marriage is designed to help you grow up. When you can see what happens in your relationship through that lens,…

    Trust in marriage is probably the most important building block for a secure relationship between husband and wife The most wonderful part of a loving marriage is the ability to trust your mate—trust that he will be true to you emotionally; trust that she does what she says she will do; trust that your partner is the same person on the inside that he presents on the outside; trust that the other person has your best interest in mind. This secure context basically creates safety, security and a deeper capacity to love. It can heal past wounds of people with hurtful childhood attachments.

Unfortunately, it’s becoming clearer that gone are the days of hitting it off with someone at a party, “Can I take you to dinner and a movie?” and walking them to their front door. We now judge whether someone is “into” us off of how they respond and interact with us on social media. This is not a new idea. It’s just (mostly) truth.

Hospital emergency rooms are clarifying places, aren’t they? As we waited for tests, I listened to the drone of hospital noise. Footsteps on cold tile floor.

Studies looking at couples find those who practice intentional gratitude have better marriages and far less divorce. Learning to feel and express gratitude results in you being happier, and it makes you a better person. Some suggest taking a few minutes each day to write down three to five things for which you are grateful. If you…
  • Gifts and the Dog House

    The Generous Husband
    26 Nov 2014 | 12:01 am
    A few years ago, JCPenney ran a commercial showing men who ended up in the doghouse for giving thoughtless gifts. The next year they ran a follow up. The commercials are funny, in a sad, horrible way. A fellow at our Wednesday night marriage group showed this recently. After we all laughed, I said I bought Lori a vacuum for Christmas one year, and she confirmed she thought it was a great gift. Another woman there said her husband did the same, and she was thrilled. I do not point this out to suggest appliances are good gifts for most women – they are not. If a woman is especially…
  • Why Are We So Busy?

    The Generous Husband
    25 Nov 2014 | 12:01 am
    Why are most of us so insanely busy? Eugene Peterson offers some sobering thoughts on this in his book The Contemplative Pastor: Returning to the Art of Spiritual Direction: “I am busy because I am vain. I want to appear important. Significant. What better way than to be busy? The incredible hours, the crowded schedule, and the heavy demands of my time are proof to myself–– and to all who will notice— that I am important. … I live in a society in which crowded schedules and harassed conditions are evidence of importance, so I develop a crowded schedule and harassed…
  • Leak Check

    The Generous Husband
    24 Nov 2014 | 12:01 am
    When we bury or hide from our emotions, we do not get rid of them. They have a way of leaking out, often when we least want them to. Since we suppress painful emotions, our leaks are usually painful.  Sometimes the leaks make sense: a situation similar to the one that caused the original emotion hits us hard because it just piles on to what we have been suppressing. Other times the leak-causing situation is not really like anything in our past, and we may not even know why we are leaking. Alternatively, perhaps we have denied the original situation, or denied it hurt us. At best, these…
  • The Least of These

    The Generous Husband
    23 Nov 2014 | 12:01 am
    It is the time of year we think about those less fortunate than we are. We drop coins in the Salvation Army’s Red Kettles. We round up our grocery bill to the nearest dollar so a few pennies go to help those who are hungry. We donate our old coats to whichever group is collecting them up for the poor.  I am not putting any of that down, but if we only do these things once a year, we are missing a big piece of Jesus’ message. Jesus was all about “the least of these”. According to Jesus, when we give food or clothes to the least of these, we do it to Him. Likewise when…

  • Do you hate your spouse’s wardrobe?

    Marie Oates
    26 Nov 2014 | 10:34 am
    Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday of all time. And I should probably write a post about how you should be thankful in your marriage or ask you to tell me why you’re thankful for your sweetie… but I’m not. Because it’s kind of expected and maybe a little boring? Instead I’m gonna tell you how the sweater below started a fight: (I can’t tell you how awkward taking this selfie was. I am not a selfie taker, and usually make fun of people over 30 that take selfies, yet here I am. Sigh.) I bought this sweater last year at Target. It was cheap and I…
  • Why do men change after marriage?

    Mark Oates
    18 Nov 2014 | 7:33 am
    Why do men change after being married? Why does it seem like they go from being the caring and affectionate people that meet your emotional needs to people that seem pretty distant? I think that what women experience from men is VERY real.  Men do get distant, and men do pull away, but let’s look at the why. I think men and women underestimate the miracle that happened the day they met.  Think about it this way.  We rarely hear the romance stories of living on the streets and eating from garbage cans when she walked by, and she was suddenly in love.  It doesn’t happen like…
  • How I Pray for My Son’s Future Marriage

    I know many parents that pray regularly for their children’s future spouses. There was even a viral post recently (that I can’t find a link to so if you know what I’m talking about help a sister out) where a mom talks about praying for her kid’s future spouse’s mom. We spend a lot of time praying for our kids’ future marriages because we know it’s such a huge part of happiness in adulthood. You can be broke and in a dead-end job, but if your marriage is solid that stuff doesn’t matter as much. The minute we meet our kids we want them to…

    I’m always amused by where and how I find inspiration. Does the same happen to you? I was all prepared this month to write what I hoped would be a brilliant, insightful look at how to survive the upcoming holiday season. But as I did my research, mediated, prayed and pondered on the topic—everything seemed to fall short of what I was looking for. Then in a true twist of happenstance (if you believe that sort of thing), I came across a book on my shelf that I’d forgotten I had bought about marriages and relationships. Flipping it through, I stumbled across this quote, “Looking for the…

  • Is There “Plenty of Time Later” to Fix Sexual Struggles in Your Marriage?

    Julie Sibert
    17 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    The phone rang at 4 a.m. No surprise that my husband and I both startled out of our groggy slumber. It was my mother-in-law, who lives in her own home, but cannot drive. She was in pain. A lot of pain. My husband and I decided I would take her to the hospital while he stayed with our 9-year-old, who was fast asleep and unaware of the phone call. Hospital emergency rooms are clarifying places, aren’t they? As we waited for tests, I listened to the drone of hospital noise. Footsteps on cold tile floor. Beeps and flashes from medical machines.  The rhythmic opening and closing of doors.

    Dustin
    10 Nov 2014 | 9:01 pm
    If you get to spend every day (or most days) with your spouse at your side, it’s really easy to take that closeness for granted. For many couples, time apart is a fact of life – and they have to try and embrace the idea that “absence makes the heart grow fonder” even when it’s difficult and sometimes downright painful. Whether you’re serving in the military (thank you!), out of town for an extended business trip or forced to live in a long-distance relationship for any number of reasons, it can be a real struggle. While we’ve been blessed to never be…

    You may not be familiar with an RQ, and it’s for good reason–I made it up. But testing of this kind has been around since the early 1900’s. You’re most likely more familiar with an IQ, which stands for Intelligence Quotient.  Your IQ is determined by measuring your answers to questions asked from others in your age group. It is a helpful tool for educators and interesting for parents. But have you ever considered where your marriage would stand compared with other couples with similar circumstances like yours such as: years married, age, number of children, where…

    You have to begin changing yourself first! So many times people ask how they can change their passive aggressive partner….and my only response is: You can’t!

  • The Abusive Relationship as a Lesson in Resilience?

    Nora Femenia
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:15 am
    resilient survivor woman CAN YOU SEE THE ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP AS A LIFE LESSON IN RESILIENCE? There is much more information about how to identify emotional abuse, than  about the process of breaking free and healing from it. The preferred solution for the victim seems to be to leave both, the abusive partner and the abusive situation. For the abuser himself, if he is not done with this behavior, now he has the job of finding another person submissive enough as to occupy the role of new victim. Thinking about this lack of information and resources, and asking the question several times:…
  • Our frustrated emotional needs become conflict hidden roots!

    15 Oct 2014 | 3:10 pm
      How from frustrated emotional needs we produce conflicts For us to lead successful and happy lives, we all have basic needs that have to be fulfilled by our loved ones around us. And we are motivated to do the same for them. We all have human needs that reach out for satisfaction, but few of us are educated in how to take ownership of them and search for solutions. Perhaps we tend to feel we are victims of others’ selfishness. If so, we need first to search for what grounds us into our own individuality. Our entire happiness depends first on knowing what we need, and then on getting…

After a public discussion about  NFL player Ray Rice hitting his then fiancée unconscious inside an elevator, the floodgates were open in Twitter for women to share their own stories. Under the hashtags of #WhyIStayed, and #WhyILeft, women are telling their own experiences of domestic violence. They swirl around the basic question: Why is she staying with him? Why is she not leaving? and the answers tinted by personal stories, ethnicity, age and cultural differences,  flow endlessly into the same river of pain and redemption. First,…

COMMITMENT Be faithful – thou shalt not steal thy neighbor’s wife/husband – infidelity is not about sex but trust (which is 90% of communication!)

    Brie
    1 Oct 2014 | 9:02 pm
    Getting your daughter to shave her legs is not an automatic task to think of when going over your mental list of things to do to get her ready for high school.  Many girls may have shaved their legs long before this point, but I’m one of those mom’s who has a daughter that could care less about her hairy legs so I had to take it upon myself to let her know it was time.  Either way, at some point in their lives, every girl must shave her legs for the first time.Shaving is something I do as a mindless act in the shower, so in gearing up for my tutorial I started thinking more…

Perhaps it feeds a deep insecurity that he’s choosing you over everyone else who’s eyeing him. Perhaps that laser focus attention he’s giving you makes you finally feel recognized for how special and unordinary you are. You kiss. Oxytocin levels skyrocket. This feels good. You want more.

This app uses geo-based technology that shows you the people you cross paths with on the street.

    When I was in my early twenties, if a guy acted aloof, called back only sometimes and showed minimal interest, I would get hooked. You could say I was addicted to the bad boy/ unavailable boy/ player. I was drawn to what psychotherapist, Ken Page terms as “attractions of deprivation” – when we are drawn to people who embody the worst emotional characteristics of our parents. Basically, the theory explains that we are attracted to people who can wound us the same way we were wounded in our childhood, as our psyche tries to recreate the past void and save us by changing its ending.

In the book Freakonomics, one study showed that single Asians (male)  had to make $247,000 more annually to receive the same response rate as White men on online dating sites. Ouch.

I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but not having sex has serious physical and emotional side effects, such as frustration, insomnia and – as I was once reliably informed, by an obese Russian facialist – adult acne.

Everything!  The best way to prepare yourself for the awesome role of parenting is to adopt thoughts, beliefs and actions that align with your happiness.  If your emotions are more on the negative end of the emotional spectrum, you will be a barrier to your child realizing their true development potential.  You may think that you can separate positive parenting from unhappiness but you simply can’t. You will inject more of your negative beliefs and thinking patterns on your child during each developmental stage…

When we are children, we are either connected to an internal awareness that life contains many possibilities and that people are essentially good or we may adopt beliefs that life’s doors are closed and that we cannot trust anyone. Men along with women demonstrate fear in a multitude of ways when their beliefs create…

  • 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…

    Marianne recently took over ownership of a small, vegan restaurant in the center of a mid-sized, coastal, university host city. Typical wait and kitchen staff includes bohemian, university-aged students in their young twenties. Since the restaurant opened a few years prior, turnover was low for the staff population. Students often continued working at the fresh, upbeat restaurant a year or more – typically only moving on to graduate or relocate. While “clean eating” and vegan lifestyles were popular in the local area, at the time Marianne acquired ownership, the business was struggling…

Many drug rehab centers are available that can provide the support, structure, and guidance addicts need to come to terms with and overcome their substance abuse. Below are three inspiring stories from people who defeated their addictions. April At the tender age of 12, April began her long road of substance abuse in an attempt to cope with…

    As fun as yesterday was, today I’ve been laid up with vertigo. I’ve had vertigo several times. Vertigo, also known as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), is disconcerting. I haven’t been drunk in many years, but I casually explain that vertigo feels like being drunk without any of “the fun” someone might have hoped for. Usually when I’ve had vertigo symptoms once I do the Epley Maneuver the spins and the nausea caused by vertigo go away within a few hours. This time, no. I left work and went home to relax. Relaxing has helped, but solved nothing.

    When you notice something, it is quite natural to mention it to the people around you. For instance, if you said, “That’s a nice car; I’d like to buy one of them someday,” you would look to the people around you to comment back and affirm your statement. We do this to develop relationships and strong bonds with people. But we don’t always receive this engaging response to our bid for others to turn toward us.

I feel quite tired though.” I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard that response in the last month alone. Of course, if I’m honest, I probably give that answer just as much as I hear it, and so do many people. Don’t believe me? Give it a shot.

Matthew, an author who is pursuing his doctorate of philosophy in Christian Ethics at Oxford University, encourages Christians to engage with the world's questions about faith seriously — not just memorizing Christian answers and regurgitating them — but knowing the why behind what we believe.

    Once upon a time, a girl realized that her boyfriend was part of the “beta male” mix, along with Jim Halpert from The Office and Ben Wyatt from Parks and Rec. And one day this Beta male, realizing that he was Beta, decided to try being an Alpha male towards his girlfriend. He thought of clever ways to assert his dominance, but could think of telling her he was “asserting his dominance”. That in itself was so Beta male of him, that it backfired, and his girlfriend giggled like an idiot for the rest of the night. Now I want to say that that was the end of the story, but…

Sometimes this seemingly innocuous phrase is stamped firmly and unapologetically at the end of a sentence, sometimes it is offered up with an seemingly innocent shrug, and sometimes it doubles as an ‘access all areas’ back stage pass held up by an arrogant and pimply teenager attending their first ever concert. “I’m just saying” is the verbal equivalent of standing behind bullet proof glass while commentating on…

    Dear Aunty Elle, I have some concerns for a friend of mine who recently got engaged to her on again off again boyfriend. At coffee recently, she mentioned rather off-handedly that he chooses her outfits for her every day. She wakes up and voila – there they are all laid out right down to shoes and possibly socks. That might not be so bad if he hadn’t also made some incredibly sexist remarks about the way he views women and how he thinks they should behave (he doesn’t work mind you and is happy to be a kept man).  My friend is of higher than average intelligence but has never…

  • You Know You’re in Love when…

    7 Nov 2014 | 10:39 am
    Love is a sneaky little thing. It gives you no heads up of when it plans to come get you and hold your heart hostage. Once it takes over, it’s almost like you don’t have a say in the matter- like you couldn’t turn the love button off even if you tried. It makes you feel amazing, strange, scared, helpless, silly, beautiful, crazy…basically you are overcome by all sorts of emotions all at once. Can you say emotions overload? Yup.But how do you know when you are in Love, exactly? Between feelings such as having a crush on someone and brief, but strong infatuations- it is not always easy…
  • You know it’s time to Break Up When

    14 Oct 2014 | 10:41 am
    Knowing when it’s time to let goA break-up is never an easy experience. Whether a break up is one sided or a mutual decision, it is something that leaves you feeling very emotionally torn. You would think that if you are pretty much over someone and have had it with the relationship, it would be easy to just pick up and leave. Not so easy though, I’m afraid. This is because no matter what problems your relationship has experienced with this person, this is still someone you once felt completely head over heels crazy about at one point, not to mention all the time and emotions that were…

    How do we girls know when a guy likes us? No rocket science needed there! If a guy is into you, he will make that very known through his actions and behaviors.Men are visual creature- this we know.

After all, capturing their interest is one thing- keeping it is another.Like women, men also need more than just a good physical connection for them to stick around and grow attached to you.

  • The Younger Man and Older Woman

    5 Oct 2014 | 4:47 am
    Why Younger men are going after older womenToday, the younger man-older woman relationship is nothing new. We see it happening more and more each day, yet at the same time- people still can’t stop talking about it, keeping it a taboo subject.Why is it that when the man is older nobody says much, but when the woman is the older one, it’s such a hot topic?I think a big part of it has to do with the fact that as a society, we have become accustomed to and trained to accept the idea of a man being considerably older than his female lover, so when we see an older woman going out with a younger…

  • The Seven Reasons I Had SEX

    20 Nov 2014 | 10:19 am
    Most times seemingly simple questions are often the hardest to answer, one of these is the ‘why do you have sex’ question. Many women say they only have sex for pleasure, procreation or love, but the truth is that there are  far more reasons we have sex than we admit. We stumbled on an article titled ”The Seven Reasons I Had Se.x” written by Sugarbelly and thought to share; I was caught in one of those rare moments when one has too little to do and much too much time on one’s hands, and it caught my fancy to write a list of every man I’ve ever had sex with.

    After the Affair - Infidelity Healing

  • Positive Affirmations For Forgiveness

    Mellie
    26 Nov 2014 | 4:49 pm
    They say there’s a wonderful release that comes from forgiveness-it’s described as a release from toxicity, a freedom from the imprisonment that anger creates in our lives. After all, when we harbor negative thoughts it’s only a matter of time that those thoughts creep into every moment, every interaction, every thought we have…until negativity takes over our lives completely. So we’re taught from childhood that forgiving others is the only way to move on when you’ve been hurt. But Forgiving Yourself for Cheating is the Toughest Challenge But when the wound…
  • How to Deal With Your Husband’s Emotional Affair

    Just because your spouse didn’t have sex with someone doesn’t mean their affair isn’t just as painful. There are many kinds of affairs, and in some ways an emotional affair can be even worse than a sexual dalliance because the emotions that you share with someone you love are often even more important than the physical connection that people having “just” sex experience. Don’t let anyone tell you that your husband’s emotional affair isn’t just as painful and hard to deal with as someone’s physical affair. The point is your spouse still shared things with someone else that…

    If only I had somehow gained access to a smartphone back in 1990. That was when my husband was cheating on me with a much younger co-worker.  You see, I could have taken advantage of today’s smartphone apps designed to catch a spouse cheating, and perhaps, who knows… maybe saved my marriage? Alas, the first iPhone came out in 2007, just a few years too late- well past the point of no return for what I had believed to be the most amazing marriage.  Right under my nose, a whole new life for both me and my husband had already begun. Had I seen the signs earlier, would things have…

    Once you’ve been the victim of infidelity the thoughts can sometimes become so overwhelming that you find it hard to stop thinking about it. It doesn’t seem to matter what you’re doing, working, playing, just living your life takes on a whole new meaning when the intrusive thoughts of the infidelity niggle at your mind every second of the day.

    Mellie
    9 Nov 2014 | 5:31 am
    Keeping a journal is a great way to write down how you feel about certain events in your life. It enables you to look back to what happened to you, how you felt about it, and how you will overcome. As you describe what happened, it gives you time to reflect, take a deep breath and provide valuable insight into your life that other methods don’t. Journals are great for processing your feelings. Things are always a little clearer when we get them out of our heads and down on paper. Everything is a little more objective and realistic. You might be surprised at what you figure out about…
