Love is…

June 1st is here! Aside from being the last Monday of the school year and the first day of hurricane season, we celebrate this day like no other. Why? Everybody knows its Mari’s birthday today! So Happy Birthday to our favorite jewelry maker (check out J-Bug Jewelry), sister and friend. We hope you have a great day, week and year filled with nothing but good stuff and chocolate. Just love that girl and how fortuitous that her birthday should kick off ‘Love Week’ on CoupleDumb!

When the love is gone.

You guys haven’t been asking questions so we have to scrounge around for them. We were looking at our search counter and found that someone had arrived at CoupleDumb by searching for ‘what do I do if I no longer love my significant other?’ That totally caught us by surprise since we usually see searches for His and Hers KY and Chris Brown is a Punk Ass Bitch. No, we didn’t want to answer the question and we literally pretended that we could fashion a question out of thin air before having to address it. But, we aren’t cowards and how will our readers believe us when we say we will answer any question?

Love or chocolate

It’s Valentine’s Day week! And you are probably wondering; “When did one made up Hallmark Day get its own friggen week?” We hear you loud and clear. This week is sweet but the reality is that in the 21 years of our relationship, we have hardly ever celebrated this day. For us, February 14 is any other day of the year. Occasionally we have exchanged cards or gone out but it isn’t that important to us unlike some couples that save up their love for a dinner at Red Lobster, a box of chocolate and 2 minutes of sex. We would rather spread out that kind of joy.

I’ll Choose Love for a 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.

Your side of the bed or mine

After 20 years of marriage, I can safely say Paul and I are very intimate. Most people will confuse intimacy and sex which is why we have such a high divorce rate and some people date like serial killers on a spree. Intimacy is the sharing of vulnerability. It is creating a level of honesty that only you two share. Now I know that many of you are saying, “Lee, WTF! Vulnerability, honesty, serial killers? This shit isn’t funny and it makes me feel weird in my stomach!” Relax people! Paul and I are committed to sharing our pearls of wisdom of how this relationship has worked and it will only pinch a little bit.
