Lee and Paul were married in January of 1989 to fanfare and unparalleled snickers of ‘it will never last’. A couple of decades and 3 kids later, they are still going strong. Lee is a professional psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience working with marriages, families and addiction. Paul is a modern renaissance man who has a bachelor’s in Astrophysics, worked in aerospace, taught all the hard subjects you avoided, championed the homeless, CFO’d several multi-million dollar non-profits and recently completed his MBA. Lee and Paul began writing over a decade ago but nothing you would ever have read unless you work for the government and review grants. They started writing CoupleDumb after having friends ask them for years about their secret to a happy marriage.
Lee and Paul write about relationships and everything that falls within the umbrella of this broad theme. They address mental health issues, addiction, infidelity but also more esoteric topics such as the mind body connection, mindfulness, spirituality, essence and concrete techniques for a happier existence. As the parents of a multiply handicapped child, they are interested in all advocacies for children, the disabled and health care reform. They are also fervent supporters of Marriage Equality and the universal acceptance of love.
Lee and Paul host a weekly web show called ‘Relationship Rehab’ which has aired for over 2 years. In May of 2010, Lee and Paul published their book ‘Dysaffirmation: Because this kind of stupid takes work.’ They also continue to provide support for those committed to their dysfunction with daily Dysaffirmations on their site along with horoscopes and quizzes.

"One of my biggest issues is that I was born 6 days before Christmas. Unless you have a Christmas birthday, you can’t appreciate how that fucks up a kid."
