Then I read a couple of articles that helped me put things into perspective.  The first… Read full post »

Let's Hear it for the Boys

With Father’s Day right around the corner, I’d like to take a few minutes to celebrate our men.  Because as much as we complain about them, do we really ever tell them how much we appreciate them?

Well, I think it’s because we expect way too much… Read full post »

If there’s one thing I’ve learned this last year, it’s that most of our problems revolve around a basic—but devastating—assumption: when things fall apart, our upset can almost always be traced back to the underlying feeling that we're not being seen or heard.  That… Read full post »

Frustrated and pissed off at your spouse? Wondering how you’ll get through another stressful, jam-packed holiday season?

Sure you are.  We all are.  It’s tough enough to stay on top of things during normal times, but how are you supposed to do that during times of high-stress… Read full post »

How to Use Anger to Reboot Your Marriage

So how many times have you gotten angry--I mean really pissed--at your spouse?  And how many times have you yelled at him, demanding that he change, that he do this instead of that, that for the love of God he stop driving you crazy.

How Resentment Kills a Marriage (and 5 Ways to Save it)

The more I talk about this blog with strangers, the more people open up to me with stories about their own marriages. Like the woman who told me this:

How to Get Out of Jail Free

So here’s the super-duper Get Out of Jail Free Card my therapist friend Scarlet gave me after I’d moaned and groaned my way through dinner, telling her how I completely lost my mind the other day.  It's a super-neat trick that's already saved my ass on more than… Read full post »
