I was watching a film recently about a guy who was about to be married. He was reflecting on all the heartbreak he caused before he met his fiancée and it was weighing on his

Men and women are wired differently

7:53 am Mar. 2, 2015

The scientists tell us that men and women are wired differently.  How brains, logic, and reasoning don’t always mirror one another.  I think this can be both a blessing and a curse.   In the

Have you failed the support test?

When you are in a relationship, it is only a matter of time before your relationship will be tested in different ways.  One of these tests is the “how do you handle intense situations” tests.  When things get tough, do you get going?  Do you step up and help thorough the crisis?  It begins to show how close you two are and how well you know one another.

Should you live together first?

7:53 am Feb. 23, 2015

I know quite a few couples who decided that living together was the next logical step for them. I believe it will lead to marriage for some of them. I think it could be the beginning of the end for at least two of them. How do you know if living together is the right move for your relationship?

The times I’ve seen living together lead to marriage,

Dealing with the running backs

6:25 am Feb. 18, 2015

We’re not talking football here (I really miss football, though), we are talking about the running back into your life kind of people. The exes that always return at the worst time. My guy friends always told me that the running backs in my life are there because I let them think running in and out of my life is cool with me.

While the people behind Fifty Shades of Grey are capitalizing on the so called love holiday, some people are thinking about actual love. Our pursuit of love and happiness is why we put up

There is a romantic “holiday” in two days and it is the perfect time to switch things up. Dinner and a movie is the dullest thing ever yet many of us get stuck on this repeat. Why is that?

You don’t have to be a master dater or some reality TV star to impress your date with something different and unique. A little listening, Internet

Relationships: Outsiders weigh in?

8:05 am Feb. 10, 2015

One of our readers has been dating someone who is super close to his family. This is usually a nice thing but in this particular case it is unsettling. He has a meddlesome mother and two opinionated sisters who are always butting in to the relationship.

The latest overstep involved the sisters telling him that he should not spend a lot of money on her this Valentine’s Day.

Relocate without a ring?

7:53 am Feb. 9, 2015

I keep watching episodes of House Hunter International. It features couples looking for a place to live abroad. I noticed that a fair amount of the people were not married. One of them would have a job opportunity and the other decided to go with them. To a new country. With no real promise of marriage. That’s commitment.

Call me romantic but I love the idea of

Does marriage change everything?

8:12 am Feb. 6, 2015

When I hear about the pre-marital counseling sessions that couples take, I wonder if they are told the truth. A lot of people worry about what marriage will be like in comparison to a dating relationship. Well, it should change everything because marriage is different.

What we really wonder if it will change everything for the worse. Will the things we once loved about them suddenly drive us
