[ 0 ] October 28, 2013

If your feet are cold, bed empty and heart ready to be in a 100% reciprocal relationship, I believe you too can find or attract your love in six month or less just as I set the intention to back in June. Before I manifested my life partner, I pondered my twisted love path. Come […]

If Your Marriage Aches, Apply Honey and Poetry

[ 0 ] August 23, 2012

I had the honor of reviewing and advanced copy of Twenty Poems to Bless Your Marriage: And One to Save It by Roger Housden. Here’s a sneak preview of the most poignant versus that vibrated with me especially after watching Hope Springs this week. Poet Rainer Maria Rilke spells out in a letter excerpted in […]

Hope Springs is Painfully Poignant.

[ 0 ] August 23, 2012

If you haven’t seen Hope Springs, bring tissues. You’ll laugh, weep, and if you’re an emotional sponge like me, leave feeling wiped but inspired. Kay (Meryl Strep) fights to resuscitate her morgue-like marriage of 31-years with Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) who has slept in the spare bedroom for five years. They don’t touch, they don’t […]

Which Movie Best Describes Your Marriage?

[ 0 ] July 1, 2012

If you’ve made it down the aisle once, are you living happily ever after with him or her? Did you marry a man who makes you giddy and as happy as Julia Child with her husband Paul? Or did you marry a loser that leaves you feeling trapped like Jennifer Aniston’s character in The Good […]

What Type of Man are You Waking Up With?

[ 0 ] April 29, 2012

I think every woman deserves to wake up with a man like Charles. He’s soft spoken, intelligent, polished, and my favorite person to share coffee with on Sunday morning. My breakfasts with Charles fill my heart, soul, and most meaningfully, my mind. He’s dishy, distinguished and as easy on the ear as Luther Vandross. Charles […]

[ 0 ] April 26, 2012

Barack and Michelle do it. Brad and Angelina do it. John and Yoko did it. How?

 They stimulate their marriage by working in unison in business and philanthropic endeavors. As the divorce rate hovers near an estimated 50 percent in the United States, many blame career stress as a major cause of separations. But somehow […]

10 Reasons I Never Married (Part II)

[ 0 ] April 23, 2012

In Part I I spilled the beans about why I’m single still, including disturbing facts such as (1) I Drank the Kool-Aid and Spit it Out (2) One Wed Wonder Aren’t so Wonderful (3) There’s Something Wrong with Me (4) Other People’s Children Are Evil and (5) It Taste Like Chicken. Being in the 10% […]

10 Reasons I Never Married (Part I)

[ 5 ] April 22, 2012

Love is the answer, marriage isn’t. What most parents, ministers, and conservatives won’t tell you is that marriage is a choice, not a requirement in life. It’s not something to check off your to-do list. At one point in my life I really, really wanted to get married, but I learned the “want” wasn’t a […]

Joyce & Jim Celebrate Their 56th Valentine’s Day Together

[ 5 ] February 14, 2012

Yes, they’re still deeply in love this Valentine’s Day and probably having a gin and tonic, fancy dinner, and another amorous evening together. God love ’em. If only the rest of the world could celebrate Valentine’s Day with such passion and consistency as Jim and Joyce Vetter. In 1955, Joyce went to the skating rink […]

Is Marriage Length a Test of Love or Endurance?

[ 4 ] September 28, 2011

Iris Krasnow is pimping her new book, “The Secret Lives of Wives: Women Share What It Really Takes to Stay Married,” due out in October. Krasnow said she found it amazing that in 200 plus interviews how many seemingly cheerful midlife women thought about divorce weekly or monthly. In fact out of the 200 women […]
