We had a fight the other day, a big, messy fight that scared us both. Tim and I dug ourselves in so deeply and so quickly, I wondered if this was the moment that would mark the end of our 28-year marriage.
When nothing worked -- as a last resort, we decided to separate. This was done with cautious optimism that both people would work on their "issues" and perhaps a divorce could be prevented. Here's what went wrong! Maybe someone can benefit from these mistakes.
We were on the same side on this one. We lived through the '70s and '80s and '90s as committed to each other as any married couple. No lawyer was going to use outdated twisted laws to take away our 31 years.
Sit on your partner's lap (or vice versa), place your mouths an inch apart, don't kiss and just breath in synch with each other (one in, the other out, etc.) while touching each other "like you've never felt another human body before."
The relentlessly upbeat, upscale and photogenic advent of the Braverman clan minus its progenitor Zeek, propelled forward into a future of happiness w...
It's beyond okay to be upset about the loss of your marriage and partner, but it's not okay to believe that those endings mean your life is over. It may be over as you knew it, but this is only one chapter that's ending.
In an effort to search for love, I listen to all sorts of stories. Good ones, bad ones, hilarious ones, scary ones... there's no shortage of stories out there.
More Pinot? It's good right? I got it on the top shelf at the grocery store. No, not the second-to-top shelf. Taste the berries. What? That noise? I put on a CD. It's the best three-man band on the face of the Earth. Rush. You totally love them, remember? When you say "hate," I think what you mean is "love."
As a society, we are quick to judge -- not just others, but ourselves. While we teach our kids about bullying, we fail to admit we live with one in our head.
I am, and have always been, privileged. And yet I manage in certain moments to be other than happy.
Your life is yours and how you live it is only up to you. You can choose to live contently or you can live a life that you wake up loving. Which would you prefer? You deserve better, it's never too late to do what you love and get paid for it!
A good relationship isn't necessarily one in which you're both constantly striving for the best relationship possible... while keeping the garbage cans empty too. Sometimes a good relationship can just be not doing much with someone you love.
It's a great time to take risks we've always wanted to take but never have. That can be a pretty sexy quality to bring to all our relationships.Is this your year for Uranus to bring a major change to your personality?
Single people have been mostly missing from the ongoing cultural conversations about balancing personal life and work life. The "all" in "having it all" is most often conceptualized as marriage, family and work, as if everyone wants the same things out of life. It is time to stop singlism and recognize marital privilege for what it really is.
Like most couples, we entered the empty nest phase of our lives pretty much the same way we entered the world, starry-eyed and clueless. We had our big 'now what?' moment and stumbled ahead, knowing that we had to do something to reconnect as the couple that fell in love all those years ago.
Don't delay writing wills or reviewing and planning for insurance coverage when starting out in a marriage. You need to know how finances will be managed while you are both alive and healthy and also if one of you becomes disabled or dies.
