Have you heard the rumor that married sex is boring? Well, that's not the case in my 11-year marriage, and it doesn't have to be for yours either. One of the beautiful things about being with the same partner for so long is you are able to explore each other's bodies.
Stop focusing on what you don't have and start developing what you do have. Your sacrifice is only meaningful if you use it as a springboard to positive actions that keep you on track. The more love you give, the more you'll receive.
I heard my husband Tim say, "If you're going to live in a 500 square foot apartment in a country where you can't speak the language, you'd better really like the person you're with." The woman seated next to him at the dinner party giggled.
I want my home to be the place that is filled with love, support and laughter. So, when the disconnect is weighing heavier than the good stuff, it's time for a regroup, reboot, retreat, or in this case, a couple's workshop.
In today's society, marriage happens when two people (usually a man and a woman) fall in love and decide to spend the rest of their lives together in monogamy. But did you know that wasn't always the case?
