AN UNDENIABLE TRUTH!

No matter your politics or beliefs in global warming for that matter, it was sad to learn that the Gores were splitting after 40 years of marriage.

That is a really long time for a couple to be together and then decide to divorce. It makes me wonder what happened and whether these intelligent people previously sought relationship assistance. If so, what could have been so terribly wrong to cause a break up of their long standing partnership.

Though affairs were quickly denied, time will tell.

To me it just reinforces the idea that whether you are a high,low or no profile couple and no matter how long you are together relationships need rehab.

I will go so far as to say that all couples could benefit from a few counseling visits every few years or reading the same relationship guide or attending a workshop together to identify where weeds have replaced flowers, so they can be pulled.

Next week we will look at the complicated subject of relationships and sex. Have a "make love not war" weekend.

Bye For Now,

Bill

  1. On Intimacy and sex, I am not sure where your thoughts will go: my experience with folks was that folks needed to be touched and feel loved. Sometimes we have to try new things and need a coach ( a neutral professional)
    who can help. Relaxation helps; action plans, homework and coaching are good for a start.
