Love Story 2

  I suppose when I started this, I should have extended my invite to  stories of people who are you in your life, not just yourself.     I don’t know if this is the sort of thing you’re looking for, but here’s my story.  I had great marriage role-models in both my pairs of grandparents.Both sets were married until my respective grandfathers died at ripe old ages.  My mother’s parents met before WWII in art school, and when my grandfather went into the service, he would send her cartoons he’d drawn through V-mail while he was in Europe.  My mother and her sisters still have some of them framed as art.     My father’s parents met on a blind date set up by her sister and her boyfriend for a double date.  They were married mere months after and had my father almost exactly a year after that.  They were married for 52…

Restore My Faith In Marriage – I Need Your Love Story!

I have a confession to make, I’m still scared of marriage! I came from a profession where I divorced people for a living, and now I deal with relationship and sexual problems, so can you blame me?   When I was working as a family mediator, I would sit in an office and play witness to people scream and cry at me and each other. I only saw the negative side of relationships, not the positive ones. After a while of seeing this, you start to question and wonder why anyone gets married these days.   I am not in the field where you would normally talk me to when things are all happy and rosy (or maybe you are and are trying to improve on that still). I’m  usually the one you contact when you are looking for advice and when things are not going so well. Sometimes it…
