Family Takes You Back Every Time

Family just let’s you come back. Even in the imperfect, at times estranged extended family mine has shown itself to be over the years, love can somehow hold fast.

However, many couples find that the thrill of missing each other soon wears off. Most of us who endure regular periods of separation for work or …

Slappy Ever After: Fighting is Never a Good Idea.

It’s a cringe-worthy but still common Hollywood movie formula: Girl meets boy, they clash at first sight but have to work together (arguing all the way). When they disagree they slap each other’s faces or trade smart-arse one liners before jumping into the sack for some sexy time, APPARENTLY turned on after that little spot of violence.
