He number of people in the U.S. who are remarrying has dropped by 40% over the past 20 years. In 1990, 50 out of every 1,000 Americans who were divorced or widowed chose to remarry. In 2011, that number dropped to only 29 for every 1,000. Meanwhile, the number of couples who are living together without marriage has risen significantly since the 90s. In 1996, there were 2.9 million unmarried couples living together. In 2012, there were 7.8 million.
It has become a lot more acceptable these days to simply live together—you get all of the benefits of married life, but without the... Read More
When you’ve been in a relationship with the same person for a long time, it can sometimes start to feel like it’s fizzling out. That’s not to say that the relationship has gone completely sour—it’s just not as exciting as it may have been in the beginning when everything was new and electrifying. This is especially the case with a lot of May-December relationships; they start out hot and steamy and then calm down once you’re both more comfortable with each other.
Sometimes, you just need to find a way to spice up your May-December relationship. Gifts are a good way to make your... Read More
Compliments, us women love them. I wonder if our men folk love them equally?

Hopefully the stigma of on-line dating services, where you could possibly meet the person of your dreams is not as delusional as once thought. I wrote this some time back.
What ? I'm not good enough to meet someone other than on line?
I have friends who will one day introduce me to the man/woman of my dreams.
I wouldn't trust anyone that I would meet on a computer.
Questions and self doubt and I wonder why?
What are we afraid of?
Do we have the belief that it is not possible to meet the person of your dreams on a dating site?
If so, why do we... Read More
Losing love in a relationship/marriage and what the heck can we do about it?
The Movie - Hope Springs - The Actors the brilliant Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones promoted me to write this. Probably not a movie for the 20- 30 year old bracket, unless of course you are already in a similar relationship.
So this is why I thought I would blog my thoughts to the men and also the women. How many books are written on relationships? How many seek counselling to find their way back to the relationship they once had with their partner, and how many of you decide it's all too hard to try?... Read More
Ok I get men are from Mars but why aren’t we raising them to know how Venus works?!?!
I was at a conference a couple of weeks ago, and the presenter was talking about work relationships but also references the differences between men and women. I have often thought that these differences, I was raised around men (brothers, uncles, dad, etc) and wondered why when I raised my sons that they didn’t get more of the message I tried to teach them; which was, open your damned ears already!
Men say they hear what women say, but in truth only about 1% of what we talk about ever reach their... Read More
Perhaps number one on everyone’s list when selecting a mate is finding someone of quality.
This is somebody who will treat you well and with respect, balances you on all levels, makes you number one in their life, is compatible both sexually and psychologically and is a soul mate you can communicate with concerning just about anything.
Mutual trust and honoring your commitments is essential for success, but trying to find one who fits all these bills involves a dedicated process of being selective – weeding through the masses and discovering someone of excellence.
