Relationship in a rut?
Here are 10 ways to bounce back.
Is your relationship in a rut? Over time it is easy to get lazy in your relationship, and all of a sudden you barely talk, let alone have meaningful conversations to check in with your partner on a consistent basis. A romantic relationship is the center of the household and is the basis for which children, friends and family can get a realistic glimpse into what a healthy and happy relationship entails. It’s time to get back on track and show them how it’s done.
Here are 10 ways to reignite the spark in your love life.
Why your second marriage is better than your first.
Going to the chapel and we're, gonna get married (again). . .

As life evolves, and perhaps kids join the family dynamic and career talk and financial stresses become more prominent than kisses and spontaneous date nights, we beg the question: If you were faced with the decision to marry your spouse again today, here and now, would you do it?
