Happy Break Up Month

January is considered “Break Up Month”. Is it the cold weather that chills the heart or the more believable idea that New Year’s tends to make a person reflect on their life that more people break up and or file for divorce in the first month of the year? Whatever the cause, the month brings an influx of people into therapy and lawyers offices across the world.

Silly Love Myths – The Heart Wants

People say the silliest things when they are justifying, rationalizing and being defensive about their relationships. We believe if we say something kind of romantic or nice that our behaviors are completely overlooked. These stupid things we say take on their own life, though. They become almost the foundation to the delusion that we are calling relationships. In other words, we say something stupid and it concretizes the flimsy excuse of our relationship. This week CoupleDumb will attack explore a few of these silly sayings and tell you why anyone who says them is just plain stupid.

When To Split Up

One of the saddest things we see is a couple that should have split up a long time ago. It sounds very judgmental but you have seen these people as well. For some reason, be it religion, the kids or the feeling of that they are consigned to misery, there are many couples who are living like the walking dead. These people tend to be the cynical folk who do not see the possibility of happiness as a state of being but perhaps see it as a fluke or something that lucky people experience. This negativity is an insipid way of being that permeates every area of that person’s life.

Secrets Of Longevity In Relationship

There are certain articles that receive a lot of traffic. Some of them promise the steps to something desirable or they let the reader in on a secret that will change their life. And, yes, this is one of those articles. The secret to an ever-lasting secret is as well kept as the recipe for ice cubes. Relationships aren’t mysteries. Relationships are not complicated. Relationships can be quite easy if we stop playing games, taking things personally and allowing co-dependent behaviors to pollute our way of being. Simple, no?

Five Fundamental Truths about PTSD

As American servicemen and women return home from war, it’s estimated that one out of five will suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As these war heroes integrate back into civilian life, it becomes likely that virtually everyone in our society will have dealings, or a relationship, with someone who has PTSD. It is therefore more important than ever that our society understand PTSD, free of myths and misconceptions about this condition.

Lee’s Christmas List

I’m a complicated girl. My Christmas List this year reflects the many shades of me. I can be reflective, violent, seductive and confounding. I am like an onion without the lachrymal gland irritant in Allium vegies. Did I mention I’m a genius with a penchant for the odd? To enhance and promote the mystery that is me, I am asking Santa for the following gifts:

Paul’s Christmas List

Christmas is a special time of year when I can shed my nice guy image and become petulant and demand gifts. My list this year has me regressing from my super cool image of a laid back brilliant hippy and my true Star Trek geek nature comes out. Yeah, I said it. Now take notes because if I don’t get what I want I may just treat you like a Horda baby egg in “Devil in the Dark”.

Sex Tips For The Holidays

We have been married for almost 24 years (in a couple of weeks). With three kids, two dogs and having our immediate family 3000 miles away, our holidays are a little schizophrenic. We go from the cold, quiet seclusion of our mountain top on the West Coast to the hot, loud overwhelming madness that is Miami. We need to prepare everything before heading East and still spread our cheer on the West. And, just because God has a sense of humor, we celebrate both our son’s birthdays in the month of December (and mine too but who has time). We do all this while we do our normal, everyday work and child rearing. How do we it? How do we do this while remaining as calm as possible while still enjoying our family and friends?

Churning Butter This Christmas

CoupleDumb talks sex on a regular basis. We believe that loving couples can have amazing sex lives regardless of whether they have kids, demanding jobs or even if they have been married a long time. Believe us, we have the trifecta! However, it is so hard to maintain that rah rah mentality when national publications promote and publish articles that contradict everything that is known about good sex, especially when they use a poll to ‘prove’ their data.
