We've been through good times and bad (just like they made us say in those wedding vows that felt so phony to us), and it's been kinda awesome, at times -- and other times, it's really sucked.
Choose to live life being excited about your day. Choose to wake up with enthusiasm about what lies ahead. It isn't just about making the best of what you have, it is about changing what isn't working.
As I lay gazing at Keri, still fast asleep, I saw her beautiful face. Even in slumber I felt her beautiful spirit. I realized then what I guess it took me a lifetime to know for certain -- every anniversary is golden. So is every day.
The bottom line is that when you are having concerns, speak up! Communicate, rather than investigate. This approach is the best way to respect yourself, your partner and the relationship.
Just because something works well for one stage of a relationship, it doesn't mean it will work for the next. Don't make rules that keep you in bondage.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind. -- Bernard M. Baruch Every great perfor...
Being vulnerable in relationships is hard for all of us, but even superheroes are stronger for it. Ironically, vulnerability to the kryptonite that comes up in our love relationships is a good thing.

This gift is for those fathers who are currently in the thick of child rearing and father-dom. You know who you are... your off time is dedicated to...
I recently met with John Gray, best selling author of 'Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus,' over lunch. His continued passion for his work is palpable. We covered quite a few topics related to sex, dating, and relationships over two hours. But his work regarding ADHD and boomer relationship commitment is fascinating.
As Father's Day approaches, I think about my father. As boys, our first relationship with a man is with our fathers. This is especially important for gay males, since our adult love relationships will be with other men.
Most couples don't go through such a dramatic severance and reunification as Brandon and Suzanne, but nearly all endure some version of the death and rebirth cycle. Sometimes the coldest winter can precipitate the most joyful springtime renewal.
