MARRIAGE

Lying

Lying

The most insidious and oft-overlooked red flag in the giant book of red flags is without a doubt LYING.   Lying is so pervasive that we even have a term for the more "innocent" ones: "little white lies".   How about "fib"? Sounds like a name for a little hamster....

Baggage

Baggage

Here's a common term in the world of relationships: BAGGAGE. "Baggage" is another word for all the negative shit that happened to you in the past and that is presumably deeply embedded in your psyche and ready to bubble up at a moment's notice.  After a marriage...

My Story – Part 2 – My Holy Shit Moment Has Arrived

My Story – Part 2 – My Holy Shit Moment Has Arrived

So my wife starts working with the personal trainer. She literally spends at least 2 hours each day at the gym.. and longer on weekends. How the hell does she accomplish this? She gets up at 4:00am every single day. This is her mission now.  This is on top of her very...

My Story – Part 1 – The Beginning

My Story – Part 1 – The Beginning

Things I hear a lot from guys online: "Well, did YOU ever run into this..." or "What did YOU do when this happened to you?" I just realized,...I never really did share my full story with the world. I hinted at it a bit in the About Me page,  but I haven't gone into...

My One Marriage Counseling Experience

My One Marriage Counseling Experience

How the hell did I get here? I'm seated across from a very nice and motherly marriage counselor. My wife is next to me. Tissue in hand. Dabbing at her eyes. I have somehow held back my tears. I don't know why, but I just poured out my life story to the counselor. It...

Keeping Your Woman from Approaching “The Line”

Keeping Your Woman from Approaching “The Line”

Let's be really blunt here for a moment. Monogamy.. it just ain't right. And by "right", I mean... it just doesn't make biological sense. It goes against the strongest of forces: Our primal urge. I am a firm believer in science. Crazy, I know. Science tells me that we...

Dissecting Dead Bedrooms

Dissecting Dead Bedrooms

My own personal experience and that of thousands of other men who have been married and/or dated will tell you the same thing: If your woman is crazy about you, you will know it. She will leave zero doubt. She will shower you with praise. She will have her...

Relationship NEEDS

Relationship NEEDS

When it comes to romantic, long-term relationships… what is a NEED, exactly? It’s a quality that must exist in order for the relationship to flourish and continue. Sounds simple enough, but it never ceases to amaze me just how much us men don’t understand the needs of...

Book Review: Single Father, Better Dad – By Mark Tucker

I happened upon an article online from Australia that gave a sneak peak at a new book by a Mark Tucker called "Single Father, Better Dad". The article really really hit home for me. What he described was so eerily similar to my own divorce experience, that I...

“Dear Betrayed Me” – Words of Wisdom From My Future Self

“Dear Betrayed Me” – Words of Wisdom From My Future Self

Dear Betrayed Me, It's me. You. From the future. I know... whoa. Weird, right? I don't normally interact with my past self (that whole time travel paradox thing), but I've been watching you. I just realized, holy shit, you're about to hit the big turning point in your...
