I Believe

Having a great relationship doesn't require hard work unless you're working on the wrong things. I use humor, common sense, and been-there-done-that wisdom to show all couples, ...

Open a Sex Savings Account & Earn Real Dividends

Okay, I’m going to be honest. This is not an entirely original idea. It was inspired by Brenda and Gill, the most clever couple I’ve ever met when it comes to keeping things playful and spicy. For example, they’re fond of having candlelit black tie dinners for two and they each wear nothing but a black tie. They ...

3 Darned Good Reasons to Publicly Display Your Affection

Remember when Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah’s couch and proclaimed undying love for Katie Holmes? He took a lot of media heat for that (and a lot of people did the eye-roll thing) but odds are good that Tom got a whopping big bunch of points (or what I call Frequent Foreplay Miles) from Ms. Katie and, after ...

When Differences Become Irreconcilable

I was cruisin’ the home page of Your Tango and read the retrospective on the turbulent relationship of Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn. I was reminded that CNN recently reported that divorce has a permanently bad affect on your mental and physical health. In my case, NOT getting a divorce would have been bad for my ...

Keep Your Guy By Letting Him Sleep Around!?!!

Negotiated infidelity. That’s the subject of “Sugarbabe” by Holly Hill, an Australian former mistress turned author. Her premise: keep your guy faithful to your relationship by letting him be unfaithful to you. Hmmmm . . . Call me old fashioned. Call me narrow-minded. But I’m not one teensy bit interested in ...

Marriage Saved

I recently got an email from a woman thanking me. Here's what she said;

I wanted to say thank you! You absolutely saved my marriage which, after 25 years, was on the brink of divorce. About 2 months after I read your book and followed your advice, my husband noticed the change in me. We were no longer fighting and I had stopped sniping at him. I shared your book with him. He read it in one sitting and couldn't put it down. That's when the real process of fixing our marriage began. We are talking more than we have in 10 years, are in love again, and the fireworks have been re-ignited! Thank you, Shela, for making the emotional love in our life stronger and for making the physical love happen again.
