Does what you eat matter?

January 27, 2010

What you eat matters by America's Love and Marriage ExpertsWe don’t know what you had for breakfast this morning, but it may well affect the way you feel and act for the rest of your day.  Your feelings, the way you emote, your anxiety, your productivity, your ability to engage in a loving relationship, are all affected by what you put into your mouth and how you maintain the health and appearance of your body.

Someone to love

January 24, 2010

Life is fragile.  Life is uncertain.  Life is not forever.  Love today.  Hug someone tonight.  In love and life, there is nothing more important than having someone to love, and someone who loves you.

Seasons of Marriage

January 16, 2010

SeasonsAll marriages go through seasons – much like the seasons of nature.  Marriage is born in the Spring, blossoms over the Summer, grows to maturity in the Fall, and settles in over the Winter.  When we find true love, most of us find it for a lifetime.  Those marriages and relationships that last over time started with the simple planting of a seed.  The seed was nourished over time.  Love grown with tender and loving care matures into fully-grown love that can withstand the tests of time.

Actions speak louder than words

January 12, 2010

When it comes to love and marriage, there is a truism that trumps all truisms.  It goes like this – pay close and careful attention to the words, deeds, and actions of the person you think you are falling in love with.  And in the end, pay most of your attention to their actions, first and foremost!  The truth is a person’s actions speak so much louder than their words.  Never lose sight of this truism for to do so is put your heart, your health, and your happiness at peril.

Great sex will not save your marriage

January 1, 2010

No marriage was ever saved or made successful because the couple had a great sex life! And more importantly, when we ask successfully married couples how important sex is to the success of their marriage – to rank on a scale of 1-10 with 10 high – the average rank was only 6!   This finding has held true over the nearly 27 years of our research.  The results are hardly a resounding endorsement for the importance of sex in a successful marriage.
