Bad sex isn't contagious but it can infect your marriage

When you watch TV, your favorite show on your iPad or look through a magazine, one thing appears very clear. Others are having great sex. If you are feeling as though yours doesn’t compare, you may begin wondering what is wrong with your sex life. This would be an error in your thinking, because TV sex, magazine sex, and other media forms of sex are rarely true. They are airbrushed and taken in short, carefully scripted clips.

My Parents Got Divorced; Is My Marriage Doomed?

Children of divorce often experience expectations of failure, fear of loss or abandonment and fear of conflict throughout their lives.
