Our business is love…and business is good.

Good Morning CoupleDumb readers! We hope your weekend was restful and you are ready for an exciting week. We were all ready to do a week talking about sex and then had to change our plans when Lee was nominated as the Mother of all Bloggers on Momlogic.com. On Wednesday morning, instead of a Celebrity Smackdown, we will have Lee’s post for the contest ‘What’s your Mom Logic?’. So we’re shaking up the week people! We won’t lose the opportunity on using this shake up to point something out; you need to be flexible and defer to the greater good of the relationship if you want to succeed.

Dreams do come true but sometimes they look funny.

We’ve been writing about dreams all week and here we are on our favorite day of the week, Thursday. This day is devoted to the core relationship. We don’t care if your dating, living together, married, in domestic partnership or unwilling to define or label your love. We are talking about two people relating. So put on your sun dress and kick off your shoes to run through the metaphorical meadows of dreams with us.

Dream big, sell the moon

Good Monday Readers! We hope this past weekend, where many celebrate their faith, was filled with love and family. We would like to thank you for the opportunity to share our experiences last week. Having a soapbox like a blog makes it pretty easy to blast every jerk in the universe. Like Spiderman says, ‘With great power there’s great responsibility’. We promise to use this power sparingly unless we really want to hurt somebody. We kid! But it’s nice to dream about it.

Safety Dance

Good Monday Readers! We hope you had a great weekend. It seems we have just had the longest winter on record because being outside seems so weird and foreign to everyone. This must be what Punxsutawney Phil feels like when they pull his furry ass out of his tree every year and hold him up for every asshole who thinks it’s cool to get up at 4:30 am in frigid temperatures to watch a rodent predict the weather. Sorry, some times the references are just for us. You see, we don’t do sun and we live in Miami. We know. We ask ourselves this question all the time. The truth is we are here because 14 years ago we couldn’t afford a house in Los Angeles, our home town. Also, we became parents after the riots. Let’s just say, L.A. didn’t seem all that friendly after watching the glowing skies and seeing people carry sofas out of storefronts on TV.

Men: You can’t burn them in a bed and get away with it.

Many women hold the view that men are substandard or that men lack the ability to relate and commit. These beliefs are perpetuated by the very men who are insulted by the labels. The media promotes the cliché and soon we are convinced that all men are dogs. In relationship, men are expected to play new roles. Sitcoms will have you believe that married men tend to be hard up, pussy-whipped and miserable. Why the media campaign against commitment?

No Esteem. No Bra. No Problem.

Yesterdays post, coupled with a very nice afternoon together, got us talking and thinking about the experience I mentioned. We thought it very interesting that we started with disparate interpretations but ultimately ended up in the same place. Since Paul promised to continue his insights to the experience, we figured we would continue the talk today. We know we are supposed to be answering reader questions so here is the question that we asked ourselves: You mentioned that a few weeks after you were married Paul asked Lee to go to dinner without wearing a bra? Why was that incident so memorable?

Addicted to Love

We have been married for 20 years. To clarify though, these have been good years, not ‘I’m staying with you because of the kids or I’m afraid I will be alone’ years. We are happy. We are the couple that makes people sick. We hold hands and will engage in public displays of affection on any given grocery run. This is one of the reasons we started this blog in the first place. Somehow or another, we have avoided the common traps and pitfalls that most couples succumb to. Sure we were incredibly naïve when we married but we were smart enough to know we didn’t know everything.

I’m addicted to you. You’re addicted to me. We’re just one big addicted family.

Addictions. We use this word like a punch line, as if one addiction is better than another. As a parent, we need to be very aware that addiction has a very specific genetic component which, combined with socialization with your child, can create uber-addicts (pardon the lack of umlauts) with an addiction with the strength of an e-bola virus. Don’t fool yourself, your kids see what you’re doing and those little vices you have will have a vice grip on your kids in the future.
