When A Woman Hits Her Husband

Unexpected Facebook message the other night: an old friend from middle school delivered a thumpin' to her husband and was arrested for assault and battery. I don't know the circumstances at all -- not that that really matters. It's domestic violence and it's wrong and it's not the way for a couple to solve a conflict.

Marriage Isn't Always 50/50

After her father-in-law dies of cancer and her sisters are in a car accident, one woman and her husband learn that sometimes supporting your spouse means being truly selfless and to get through the hard times you have to focus on what's important: " Support in a marriage is not a nice 50/50 split.

Life As An Olympic Couple

Sometimes the toll of becoming an Olympian—the thousands of hours of training and travel and overall turbulence—can take its toll on a relationship. But what happens when both members of a marriage are Olympic champions? When the games come to a close, 302 gold medals will have been awarded at the 2008 Summer Olympics. Katerina Emmons, a shooter from the Czech Republic, won the very first one. Emmons was indeed the first athlete in Beijing to hear her national anthem played on the medal stand, amidst the awe and exuberation of being crowned an Olympic champion—a feeling made even more special by the person with whom she was able to share it: Her husband. Her soul-mate. Her one-and-only love. Talk about romantic.
