10 Tips for a Long and Happy Marriage

For one couple, it might be a simple passion or activity they both enjoy, something that no one else can understand. Humor, music, sense of s...

D ear Us: So — where along the line did we give up on trying to have a happy marriage? I guess it was when you and I looked long into each other’s eyes and realized: Marriage isn’t about staying happy — marriage is about staying growing. So maybe — tossing that whole sham of always-happiness was good riddance? Happiness-centered marriages implode — because that shifting centre won’t hold. But I’d written down what my therapist said and we keep talking about it over the early caffeine: Any eco...

Are You Married and Questioning Your Beliefs?

“Married and Questioning Your Beliefs” cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward Relationships in general and marriages in particular struggle to survive deconstruction. In a marriage, when one or both partners change their beliefs, it puts incredible strain on the relationship. I hate to say it, but my observation is most marriages don’t survive it. Marriage is about change. If you don’t change as an individual, you aren’t growing. If you don’t change as a marriage, it’s not growing e...

"Marriage is the death of romance" gets me to some boring relationship advice plus the assertion that it's the translation of a Chinese proverb:I'm dubious.

I Am Unsure What Kind of Relationship I Should Have with My Parents

I grew up in a upper middle class family. I was given most things I wanted and all the essential things a child would need. I have a brother who is 25, he has borderline personality disorder.

Mindfulness Matters in Marriage — and Roller-Skating

Are you are wondering what marriage and roller-skating have in common? Roller-skating is only for kids, right? No. And married people are adults? Most of the time, but not always.  I’ve been roller-skating for decades as an adult. In my personal life and in my work as a therapist, I’ve noticed that no matter how mature we’ve become, a child inside of us often surfaces. A few months ago, I had an awful skating accident. I lost my balance and fell on my back. This happened because I’d lost my ...

7 Romantic, Non-Lame, Can’t-Miss DIY Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Gal

Valentine’s Day is in two weeks; have you thought about what you’re going to get for your lady love? Chocolates and flowers are pretty boring and cliche. Jewelry is expensive, and equally unoriginal. She might swear she wants “nothing,” but what she usually means is that she doesn’t want anything big. She’s probably still hoping for some small acknowledgment of the holiday, even just a card. And if she thinks she’s okay with your skipping even that, she’d still be thrilled — especially so give...

A Therapist Reveals the Surprising Truth about Older Men Marrying Younger Women

Aspen Colorado is a playground for many billionaires and celebrities. Also, the surrounding towns are full of “young for their age” fit and attractive mountain men.

There are always exceptions to any rule, but a clear pattern has emerged over my many years in practice that has truly surprised me.
