I think we're focusing on the wrong thing here. Your husband slept with a prostitute, yes, and probably more than once (who sleeps with someone that lives with them once?) and yes, she is likely "good at sex" to put it mildly. But here is why your husband lied: because you are the person who would have said "hell no" to dating him if you had originally known about his past. He may well think you'll say hell no now too, if he tells you the truth.
I fully believe in soul mates, and I believe that when you find the right person it will work out somehow, someway. You will fight for what you really want, and some of these teaching tools come disguised as issues. Don't feel ashamed if you also find yourself taking a different road than your parents had hoped.
The crying was relentless. And it kept getting louder. I pulled myself out of bed and shuffled myself downstairs, disoriented and angry. Why is she s...
When we think of effective communication, we often overlook one very critical aspect of communication. We focus on the verbal, non-verbal and listening aspects of communication. All of which are very important. But they are not the only aspects of effective communication.

Here are some tried-and-true tips that planners have picked up over the years.

I embrace my golden man with open arms and every iota of love I have in my soul. It will replenish tomorrow. This morning, it is safe to tell him my stories and let him hold me close to his heart. This morning it is safe to love.
For BRIDES, by Jillian Kramer We've been socialized to swoon over flowers, chocolates, and other romantic gestures. "But romance only takes a relat...
I did something I had judged others for doing in the past and something that I had always said I would never do. I had an affair with someone who was married.
Tomorrow I will no longer be a wife. I'll still be a lot of other excellent things: a woman, a daughter, a mother, a friend, an American, a writer. But I will no longer be a wife. I will no longer be able to casually toss the words "my husband" into a conversation. They say it takes 21 days to create a new habit. But I suspect this one's going to take quite a bit longer than that.
Bridey, if you're a 30-something bride feeling lonely, recognize that you're not alone. Know that your friends and family DO care, and they love you.
Imagine you are carrying around a faux Prada bag you bought for six dollars in Chinatown. It looks real. It feels real. But how long can you keep conv...
They put the kibosh on romance because they have the hearing of Doberman crime dogs; they can hear a mouse fart through your dense plaster and lathe walls. The thought of you and their father having sex makes them want to projectile vomit.
I've come to realize that I made a lot of mistakes in my marriage over the years.
