I am dating a man who strives everyday to be the person his father would be proud to see and I for one, am proud to be by his side. To all those who have witnessed how loss can change the person you once knew, take a minute to appreciate the honorable man they have become.

There are plenty of homes in which uneven power relationships are serious problems. But a system of carefully balanced power dynamics is only a "floor" of ethical marriage and family relationships, not a "ceiling." It's a bare minimum, not the ideal. Oh, there is so much more!
If at any point your partner makes you feel guilty, or as though you have to choose between who and what you love, you're probably not with the right person. The best relationships are the ones that make you more yourself, not less.

In my 20 years of writing, discussing, and counseling people on weight loss, I have pondered, why are some people successfu...
