  • > You married the Wrong Person.

      You totally married the wrong person. We all did… … and here’s why.   We are social animals; so if you are human and have a heartbeat, you are will absolutely live through many versions of yourself based on your experiences shaping you over the course of a marriage. The person you are and…

  • >I take it back…

    >I take it back…

    You told your partner “it” was okay… but it wasn’t… not really… You know what I’m talking about. The thing you just don’t talk about. Maybe you knew it then; you definitely know it now. But you just don’t know how to take it back. You feel trapped, by “it”. My esteemed colleague, Esther Perel,…

    >Why Marriage in movies sucks royally

    Just before my wedding, I remember being gripped with the fear of taking on the title of “wife”… Like, today, I’m your girlfriend – we have fun together and really like each other, but the second I become your wife, I’m going to inexplicably transform into a nagging, needy mess that you can’t stand to…

    >New (and not so new) Daddies: How to survive your Wife

    I’m a working Mom, I see it from both sides; I’m just as often the one who comes home to a messy house with no dinner, as I am the one who gets so caught up in helping to create that same mess, that I completely forget to make the aforementioned dinner… …to say nothing…

  • >Telling the truth about marriage…

    >Telling the truth about marriage…

    When I heard Ben Affleck’s Oscar speech, all I could think was, “OMG, he’s telling the TRUTH!” Then I thought, ‘ohhh, he’s going to get slayed for it.’ Because no one tells the truth about marriage; ‘It takes work’ has become a cliché, to be thrown around randomly; just try saying it at your next…

  • >Can we fall back in love?

    Remember when you first met your partner and suddenly started blowing off friends, calling in sick to work – generally falling off the radar? Remember???  By the time you realized how insufferable they could be, you already needed them; badly. You may have already been committed; engaged or married, when you stood in your newly-leased…

  • >The Other ‘Morning After’

    >The Other ‘Morning After’

    You got married (hopefully) because you took time to learn about each other and found something special there. Did you really expect to wake up as the same people every day forever?! The problem is that no one talks about what it’s really like to be married; no one talks about what happens the morning…

  • >”Marriage is a f***ing Marathon…”*

    >”Marriage is a f***ing Marathon…”*

    My husband used to do triathlons; he would swim, then bike, then run, as I quietly analyzed what sort of mental disorder would make him actually want to do all of that. It wasn’t the actual competition, but the preparation that most intrigued me. As much as physical training, you had to have a plan – How will I…

  • >My computer and your marriage MAY have this in common…

    >My computer and your marriage MAY have this in common…

    My laptop is dying a slow, painful death; I’m completely miserable, yet in utter denial about the severity of the problem… I’m also dismayed at the idea of spending thousands of dollars on a new one, although I know that it will inevitably make my life easier – it’s just a question of how long…

  • >This should piss you off…

    >This should piss you off…

    Men feel awful for not financially ‘providing’ in a down economy, and women despair over damage to their family from often unexpected changes, (generally speaking.) Rather than looking at how their “jobs” in the relationship might change in order to fit new situations, couples plow forward, with the idea that men should be the primary…
