I was jaded by the popular advice given to me before our wedding, "Prepare yourself: marriage is hard." But the best things in life are worth fighting for.
We recognize that objects and money can be fleeting, and if we're too attached to them and they disappear, we're in for a world of hurt. But, what if we've become too attached to our own story? What if we unwittingly allow ourselves to become welded to a particular view of ourselves to the point of becoming immobilized?
There's a bit of controversy abrew over what Hollywood has done to the story of Kim and Krickett Carpenter in the hit movie The Vow. Asked to comment for a FOXNews.com story, how did I respond?
Let me guess. You are a woman who doesn’t look forward to Valentine’s Day!
I haven't liked Valentine's Day since 5th grade. Cindy Smith was the girl for me back then. Valentine's was my opportunity to express my vast, undying love for her. I did the best I could to fully describe it in a little hand-written note. To seal the deal, I topped it off with a few sweethearts in the same envelope. She read my note, ate my candy, and then promptly threw the note down the sewer drain.
I’m learning that the kind of love story that wouldn’t make a very exciting movie makes for a wonderful marriage...
No matter how long you’ve been married, simple acts of love -- those things you used to do to express your love to one another -- keep you both knitted together in love.
Want to mess up your marriage? Live separate financial lives.
Boredom can sometimes sneak up on you – but if boredom has begun to creep into your marriage you need to take notice because it can do a lot of harm to your relationship...
There are times when we look at our marriages and silently think, “This so wasn’t part of the deal.” But in reality, it was and is.

When you interact with others at the office or the gathering place after work, what message do you send? Do you have the right boundaries?
