About Us

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 has a doctorate in Psychology and has been a professional psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience working with marriages, families and addiction. Paul is a modern renaissance man who has a bachelor’s in Astrophysics and an MBA with a specialization in Finance, worked in aerospace, taught all the hard subjects you avoided, championed the homeless, CFO’d  several multi-million dollar non-profits and is a noted Finance Writer.  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 podcast called ‘Relationship Rehab’. In May of 2010, Lee and Paul published their book ‘Dysaffirmation: Because this kind of stupid takes work.’ Lee and Paul are available to give their two cents about relationships and are always up on the latest scandals and public faux pas.
