Musings from around the web on how to build/maintain healthy romantic relationships.
Last year my marital problems were at its height. I really disliked my husband, the conversations he would try to have with me. The way he showed me affection. His expectations of me. I felt like nothing I did was enough and that he didn't "GET" me. But that all changed.
This is what the husband called me at work to tell me. Why? I think it was his endearing way of indicating he wasn’t mad that I rebuffed his attempt at morning sex.
Save your money, your sanity and your relationship; rethink your Valentine’s Day and how you express yourself in love every day.
The biggest tension in loving, and loving well, lies in your ability to hold fast to your personal standards while simultaneously letting go of your unrealistic expectations of others.
Love is a wild thing; it has many seasons, you have to find someone willing and able to weather them.
This therapist didn’t get us, yet he was trying to "fix" us, and succeeded in almost breaking us. It took my husband nearly a week to convince me that we shouldn’t get a divorce.
We finally went to couples counseling and I finally met the therapist my husband has been seeing for a few weeks, my first impression was: seriously, da hell!?
Day one of another weekend too short in duration and too full in content, which included back-to-school shopping for my incoming kindergartener and incoming first grader. I spent $200 and did not buy a thing for myself. Jesus can you add this to the things that require fixing?
On the final morning of my twenties, I rolled over in bed and faced my husband only to find that he was already awake and creepily staring at me:
Husband: How does it feel?
Me: How does what feel?
Husband: To wake up on the final day of your 20's?
