Posted on 02/11/2013 by | Sex & Relationships | Comments

RelationshipsIn this new world of branding, my brand is as a sex, love and relationships expert. But within that ring of romanticism, my heart belongs squarely to romantic travel. I have just finished a manuscript with AARP called Perfect Places for Romance and Passion at Any Age and I previously worked with the same coauthor, Dr. Janet Lever, on the newly released Getaway Guide to a Great Sex Weekend. Once my love of romantic travel might have seemed a bit …

Enough Is Enough

RelationshipsQ: I don’t love my husband anymore. He is controlling, verbally abusive and only wants me for sex. He is retired and I work full time. He never helps around the house, yet questions everything I do. If I work overtime at my job as a medical assistant, he accuses me of having an affair. He has driven my son and daughter away. We went for counseling, and the counselor said he never loved me, just needed me. He has …

My Husband Is Online Dating. What Do I Do?

Home & Family | RelationshipsQ: I recently discovered that my husband is on several online dating sites. When I confronted him, he said he was sorry and claimed he wasn’t necessarily trying to “hook up” with anyone. But his profiles on the sites state that he was trying to connect with people for those reasons. I have not found any real proof that he hooked up with anyone else, but he is such a liar I don’t know what to believe! If we didn’t …

Home & FamilyIt was a love that was going to last forever. Perhaps it didn’t last “forever” but it did run 79 years. We took note when we saw that Theresa Faiss, wife of a former Nevada state senator died earlier this week at the age of 97. Faiss and her husband Wilbur operated businesses around the Las Vegas area for more than 60 years, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. They even had a school named after them. Earlier this year …

I’m Taking Away Your Allowance

Posted on 10/29/2012 by | Sex & Relationships | Comments

RelationshipsQ: My husband will not quit spending. He has purchased several vehicles, only to trade them in for less than we owed on them. During our 18-year marriage, we have refinanced our house six times to pay off loans and credit cards. When we refinanced this last time, I refused to pay any of his credit cards or loans off. I would not have even considered refinancing again, but the low rates were appealing. That was 21/2 years ago. I …
