Do Children Change a Relationship? Ha!

It’s Monday again. For some parts of the world, autumn has arrived with a vengeance and has even flexed its meteorological changes with a little snow. Down here on the southern tip of the U.S., we have just had record heat and are supposedly in a cold snap. Please don’t interpret that to mean we experienced anything that can be construed as frigid weather. The only thing this means is we may actually have a day that the low is lower than what our thermostat is set at. The heat and general discomfort reminds us of those wonderful days when we were pregnant and the recordable temperature meant absolutely nothing since in Babyland it was always hot and humid.

Boring Sex? You’re Doing It Wrong.

How do you start of the week with a bang? Those of you who answered, ‘HAVE SEX’ have come to the right place. We are all about the sexy time this week. Yes, we have devoted a week to sex before on CoupleDumb. Yes, we tend not to like to repeat ourselves but this is sex we are talking about here, not a vaccine. Anyone who has tasted of this forbidden fruit can tell the chaste that sex is like potato chips, once is never enough. But what are the things that make sex not so fun? Why are there so many sexual hang ups in a time where sex is everywhere? Is everybody taking crazy pills?

The Shadow

Welcome to Monday of a week that we are certain will be interesting. After being interviewed by the Miami Herald, with photo shoot and all, we are really tapping in to the deep dark fears that keep freaking us out every time someone says that they like our stuff. So, like we have been known to do, we have decided to make this week’s theme reflect our own inner turmoil as we talk about the weaknesses and shortcomings that we call the Shadow. (Ooooooh, scary.)

What U Said?

Welcome to a new week! Are you ready? Are you prepared? Are you still waking up? We have been burning the candle at both ends for the last week and we can safely say we are pooped. This is our 8th straight day blogging and there seems to be no end in sight. Why do we do it? Simple, we do it because we’re nuts, bonkers, loco, batty and all things insane. We also do it because we love to write. It’s all about the words for us.

CoupleDumb’s List of Dysfunctional Music

Good morning friends! We hope your weekend was restful and you have a lot of energy to take on this new week. We were lucky enough to spend some time this weekend playing the new Beatles Rock Band game. All we can say was WOW! Music has such an effect on all of us. Hearing and playing the songs that everybody knows and loves reminded us of how universal music is. Music inspires, incites and initiates people into new journeys in their lives. The Wedding March, Pomp and Circumstances, and Happy Birthday are encoded in our DNA and we all react with the appropriate response after hearing only a couple of bars. Some music, however, should be banned for being insipid.

Your Side of the Bed or Mine?

First of all, I feel that people should be shot in the head if they call sex, “making love”. I think our new wonderful president should enact a law or even an amendment calling for immediate castration if someone refers to the act of boning as other than that. Instead of making love, we will use terms like “sex”, “fuck”, “doing it”, “getting some”, “buttering the pancakes”. I fell that this sweeping legislation will almost immediately ebb the raging divorce rate in this country.

I’ll choose love for 200, Alex

Last week’s post on Thursday regarding relationships like corporations wasn’t very romantic. But let’s face it, society has built up love and couplings to be this biochemical explosion that can only be understood with a periodic table and a Bunsen burner. People talk about “having chemistry” with someone else as if that is the litmus test for all attraction. If they aren’t using scientific terms for pairing up with someone, then it becomes some magical mumbo jumbo of how a person saw fireworks or heard the perfect sonata when “the one” kissed them.

Do I Know You?

It’s Monday and if you are anything like CoupleDumb today, you needed an extra weekend added to last weekend. We have been so busy lately that our daily coffee intake has suffered. As writers, you realize that caffeine is like a muse so if we seem uninspired, don’t blame us. We are proud to announce our Facebook username, making it easier to keep in touch with us. Our fans tend to get a little extra from us since we aren’t beneath putting out for attention. This is the point that we start discussing our topic for the week and we decided we would go old school; getting back to basics. We are a relationship blog and it has been a while since we broke it down for everyone. So this week, we will dissect the relationship and come up with some rules to live by for healthy coupling, parenting and general relating. Are you ready?

Musterbating: Not as fun as it sounds.

We should probably welcome you to a new week and say nice things like ‘nice to have you back’. We should probably also add something pithy and amusing to update you on any new development with our book or the website. And, we should probably, at this point, start ramping up our topic for the week with a set up and then smart ass line. However, we’re buried under all these ‘shoulds’ and can barely reach the keyboard. Do us a favor? Call our local rescue people and tell them to send us some snacks and coffee. Come on. You should be nice!
