Poll: You Feel That Way About Sex, Too?

Poll: You Feel That Way About Sex, Too?: I feel like my sex drive must be a distant relative to a bear, because it's in hibernation. I feel like Charlotte was right when she said, "My vagina's depressed." I feel like the only drive I have left is in my car. Because the bedroom one, that's MIA. I can't remember the last time I had sex in an interesting place. I wonder how my husband could possibly want sex after a long, tiring day. I have a wandering mind before (and during) sex. And thinking about errands or who will win Idol just kills the mood. I would rather burn calories at the gym than in the bedroom I love my baby, but had no idea that loss of interest in sex (plus leaky breasts) was part of the deal. I feel like Alanis Morisette's "Ironic" is my theme song -- it's crazy that birth control pills can diminish my sex drive!

Your Marriage Is More Important Than Your Kids

Your Marriage Is More Important Than Your Kids

Children are most definitely a blessing. They require a substantial investment of our time, attention and resources, but return joy that can’t be measured. However, parents must not lose their relationship in the midst of the overwhelming nature of parenting. Spouses can be intentional about their marriage so the whole family can thrive. After nearly 15 years of marriage, I’m still learning this. Small improvements in your family can make a big difference. Don’t feel guilty when you are taking time for your marriage. Remind yourself that you are benefiting your children as well. The alternative is to do nothing, and continue the almost imperceptible drift apart.

When A Younger Sister Marries First

Growing up, I was never the girl who dreamed of her perfect wedding gown or envisioned where the ceremony would take place. Instead, my future consisted of covering concerts and stalking bands for an interview. There's nothing wrong with that, right?

Being A Dad Makes Me A Better Husband

The other woman in my life, Sophia, is my 2-and-a-half-year-old daughter. Sure, children can arrest marriages: maybe Mom has to put a career on hold, or Dad realizes he just isn't ready to be a dad, or mom and dad bicker constantly over the cumulative array of child-rearing decisions (diet, vaccines, public or private school?—the list is endless). But it shouldn't be this way. In fact, the more time I spend with my daughter, the more attuned I become to what I love about my wife.

My Gay Ex-Husband Still Lives A Secret Life

Within two years of reuniting, I sold my home in California and moved to Virginia to be with him. We moved into an apartment temporarily while our dream home was being built from the ground up, and Gary proposed to me on the newly poured foundation. Eight months later, we received the keys to our new home, and we were married the same evening in our empty dining room. For a while, my life seemed perfect. I had a handsome husband, a brand-new home, we both had stable careers. My husband went to work every day and came home on time every night, which gave me such a sense of security. I should have been a very happy woman, but for some reason, I wasn't. I started spiraling into a deep depression, and I couldn't understand why.
