Sisters, stop asking if your standards are too high, if you want too much, if you are being too selfish. Figure out what you want. Don't settle for anything or anyone less. And then, once you and that worthy man find one another, love and work for each other as if your heart and souls depend on it.
It's been over 30 years since I've seen these now middle-aged adults who were teens back then. I am a little nervous.
If you're divorced, you realize something went wrong with your failed marriage. You can learn from the painful experience, get up again, adjust your crown and take another chance on finding midlife romance. Why not?
I know my husband has Male Pattern Blindness, a condition that afflicts many men. But that doesn't mean it doesn't drive me absolutely insane. So tell me, does this happen in your house too?
As parents, I think we need to discover an erotic world in our house that remains separate from the children. The girls have no trouble entering their imaginary realms -- any place, any time of day.
Rushing is in our nature. We get excited. We want to move on to each new and intriguing stage of our lives. However, part of being truly ready to get married is knowing that like all other stages, it doesn't have to be done in a hurry.
Here was my husband, knowing what we know, saying, "Screw the worst. I'm here to love you forever." And I cried because it was from my parents that we were learning that kind of love. It's a heartbreaking lesson. And a beautiful one.
Years of shared experiences, and the comfort of complete compatibility, more than make up for any lost youth, no matter what marketers splash across our screens
Men do not need someone to control and mother them and when this happens it is an instant turn-off. Nor do men want a woman who is at all needy or desperate for him to be the source of her happiness. So what makes men tick and how you can you empower yourself to have the relationship you want?
Neither of us thought that getting married would change our relationship. It turned out we were wildly, hilariously wrong.
For finding love, sometimes the timing is all wrong. The attraction is there, but one person, maybe both, is just not ready or free. How many romances...
The best man stood up and made a speech with a blend of sage and humorous advice on how to have a good marriage. A few of the guests exchanged whispers about his qualifications for dispensing tips to the newlyweds. After all, his own marriage had recently ended in divorce.
Man: Oh, OK, I guess I see her point. I'm sorry, so I'll tell her that, and then this whole nightmare is over. Then we can watch TV or have sex. It's 7:59 now so we should be able to start watching at 8, good deal.
What were the themes that led a person to fall out of love? Loss of trust, loss of intimacy and no longer feeling loved by his/her spouse. This led to great emotional pain which made the person feel bad about him/herself, further destroying his/her love for his/her spouse.
I suggest all women -- especially moms -- reclaim our bedrooms as preferential spaces in our homes beyond just storing clothes, applying makeup, and sleeping. While doing this, I also recommend we commit to reprioritizing our personal sexual satisfaction to a heightened position.
Remain calm. I am here to help you. Here is what will change: some men will call their spouses husband and some women will call their spouses wife. That's pretty much it. Your marriage is safe!
