Marriage, Me, and Barbara Bush

This week I thought a lot about Barbara Bush. First of all, who would have thought Barbara would go before George? Did you, like me, figure – with her indomitable spirit – Mrs. Bush would outlast George by years? But that wasn’t in the cards. Reports from the family said that Barbara, with humor and […]

The Five-Year Marriage Launched!

Yesterday was the big day! The Five-Year Marriage is officially published! I have to admit, I was a bit nervous. I’ve been talking about – and living – the Five-Year Marriage for a long time. Some have loved the idea and others have hated it. But that was always on a small scale. And I […]

I Do…Until I Don’t

I Do…Until I Don’t is the new movie written and directed by Lake Bell. She also stars in the movie. In it, a documentary film-maker has become jaded by thoughts of traditional marriage. She thinks it’s outdated [and she’s correct!]. Instead, she thinks marriage should last seven years with an option to renew. The film-maker […]

Sage Advice from Advice Column

I get a kick out of reading advice columns and, recently, it was a Carolyn Hax column. The title grabbed me: “Reexamine goals with ‘aimless’ husband.” It is about a problem that is pretty common in marriage – unclear expectations. The question is from a successful woman. In her marriage of a couple years, she […]
