Men are not a reform project

  This story is very common in the world of relationships. A woman falls for a bad boy, a scoundrel, a waste of space — whatever you want to call the type of man who has something attractive about him but has no good qualities. He is handsome, but he’s a liar. He has all [...]

Choose: either me or your parents

  This wife wrote us: I’m 35 years old, my husband is 39, and we dated for seven years and have been married for fourteen years. We also have twelve year old twins.

Incredible, I have to speak about hospitality in marriage

  Cristiane and I have made several trips lately, which means spending a lot of time in hotels. And this made me think of the connection between hospitality and marriage. As you know, the basic principle behind the hotel business is to make the guest feel comfortable, welcome, and relaxed. That’s why hotels look to [...]

Understanding this basic truth can transform your marriage

  We all have needs and things we want, (wishes.) You need to nourish yourself, but once in a while you want to eat a succulent Argentinean filet (or an organic apple from the groves of Washington, if you’re a vegetarian.)

He thought her absurd for interrupting him in the middle of “saving the planet,” — an [...]
