Can Your Childhood Predict Your Luck In Marriage?

marriage related to childhood

We live in unprecedented times. If you’re married, you’re a minority. For the first time, there are more single than married people. Apparently, the entire country of Sweden has decided not to bother with marriage. The question of our culture has suddenly become: why get married? I recently married, and my friends ask, “So, how is it being married?” Or, of course, I get the unsolicited comment, “I’m never getting married.” If they do delve a little deeper they might say something like, “I don’t want to give away half my stuff.” Do childhood experiences shape our views on marriage?

How To Manage A Food Addiction Over The Holidays

food addiction

The holidays remind us of family get-togethers sharing food, laughter and bonding. But if you are a food addict, the holidays may be one big, guilt-ridden binge. Food addicts think about food and have memories of food too, but they will most likely be linked with memories of hiding it, being punished by withdrawal of food, or being abandoned from loving relationships and using eating as a means of comfort. With all of these complicated issues surrounding the act of eating, it’s no wonder the holidays are so stressful for people who struggle with food addictions. The frenzy and excitement brings stress, and food addicts comfort and calm their stress with food. How can you help if you are addicted, married to or know a food addict during the holidays?

How To Tell If You (Or A Friend) Are In An Abusive Relationship?

Does your significant other constantly chalk his bad mood up to something that you’ve said or done, then apologize almost immediately? Is your friend’s new beau always listening in to her phone calls or reading text message conversations over her shoulder? These seemingly normal scenarios can also fall into the category of abusive behavior, according to some relationship experts. “Any action that limits your freedom or self-expression could point to a pattern of control or abuse,” says author and relationship expert Maxine Brown. Read on for a list of more subtle signs that you or a friend may be in an abusive relationship on Your Tango…

6 Ways Men Can Speak Up About Their Sexuality

Men Talk About Sexuality

Women are everywhere these days and sexuality is one area in which women have globally joined forces to have a voice. But interestingly, in all this activism, one thing that has been slightly quiet and unheard, one thing often missing, is the male voice. A lot of emphasis is being placed on empowering women, whereas a lot of stigmas and myths around sexuality are very much directed towards men. And while I don’t believe this movement is taking away men’s voices, I don’t necessarily think it’s empowering men to understand that they have a role with a voice, too.

Let’s identify some issues in which men are often blamed for perpetuating, but in actuality, men may be just as susceptible to as women. Read all six sexual issues on Your Tango…

Getting It On In The Workplace? Here’s The #1 Spot For Office-Sex

Office sex chart

One of my ultimate fantasies, besides having sex in a cab, which I will probably never fulfill, is having sex in the office. But since I work from home, tragically, I don’t think I’ll ever get to do that one either. There’s just something about the idea of it: the sexual tension between you and a co-worker, perhaps the head-butting over client management, and when you go into the conference room alone to argue it out, just the two of you, you have one of those ferocious kisses that you only see in movies. Before you know it, pens and papers are scattered across the floor and you’re having sex on the table. Hello, awesomeness! Find out which locations are hard at work on Your Tango…

What Guys Think: Does Age Matter?

There’s probably never been a time in your adult life where a potential partner has turned you away because you’re too young — or too old. In a lot of ways, it makes the mystery of love all the more elusive: Does it really know no bounds? Is it really just a number?

The answer is, according to the men in the room, a resounding Yes: Love, when it comes to dudes, really does know no limits — and it really is just a number. Except, of course, for one teensy, tiny exception (that you actually won’t believe). Read more on Your Tango…

As a sex therapist, I often work with long-term, committed couples struggling with a variety of sexual difficulties. The most common issue is the problem of mismatched sexual desires.  The partner who wants sex more often usually ends up feeling rejected, wondering whether their partner still finds them sexually attractive or whether their partner is cheating on the sly. If one partner suddenly seems to have lost interest in sex or is pulling away after years of closeness, the real reasons often have very little to do with attraction or infidelity.

When I Wouldn’t Confront My Trust Issues, They Confronted Me

trapezes trust

When I started dating at age 13, I approached relationships completely unaware that I could and would fall—and with faith that, if I did, the net below would catch me. I put all of my trust in the boys I gave my heart to, and was blindsided again and again when, despite my total devotion, they didn’t love me the way I deserved to be loved.

And it wasn’t just men. Fair-weather friends also disillusioned me. I didn’t truly understand that being a devoted friend or girlfriend didn’t guarantee that others would act in kind. Instead of becoming hip to the ways of people who would mistreat me and avoiding them accordingly, I retreated into myself and tried unsuccessfully to block out potential sources of pain.
