5 Truths About Long-Term Committed Relationships
Here are 5 truths about long-term committed relationships that will shatter the myths of couplehood.

So before you go ahead and start writing those comments, I want you to know that I support both singles and couples. In reality, I can list as many positives as negatives to either status. The point I want to make is that there is not one ideal way to live your life. Each side of the fence has its challenges and rewards. For every life, there will be a time to be single and a time to be coupled. Regardless of which side of the fence you currently stand, count your blessings. Enjoy the benefits and remember, the grass is not greener over there, it is simply another location. All kidding aside, I would love to hear your feedback. So please, comment away! This is a great conversation to have and I invite all of you to chime in. If you find yourself struggling in singlehood or couplehood, I’m here to help. For a private consultation, contact me via email or call at 310-379-5855 or 1-888-99PATHS.
