Uplifting encouragement and fun ideas will help you build a stronger union at the click of your mouse!
And, if your marriage is in crisis, you’ll find helpful support and tried-and-true advice for restoring peace once again. Both men and women openly share their marriage issues in order to gain insight and find solutions. All names that appear have been changed, except for mine. My husband and I are frank and honest about our own marriage in order to help yours. Building a great marriage might not always be easy, but it is always worth it.
My goal for BellaOnline’s marriage site is to be place where women can read about other real life marriages with all the everyday joys and triumphs as well as trials and challenges. Here are a few coming highlights:
-Marriage Profiles. Real life marriages.
-Bliss! Sharing blissful moments in everyday marriages that you can create, too.
-Love Basics. A simple approach to human nature, love and making it work.
-Conflict and Crisis. How couples cope.
-Intimacy. Learn how to grow closer in mind, body and spirit.
-The Three A’s: Addiction, adultery and abuse
-Quizzes. Learn about yourself, your spouse and your marriage through taking fun mini-tests.
-and so much more…
As a marriage advocate, I am passionate about marriage. I believe that marriage provides opportunities for personal growth and true love that can’t be experienced in other relationships.
I’m in the midst of considerable site development that will be on-going, but I invite you to take a peek at a new article feature that will introduce you to a lighter scene in an everyday marriage:
“It’s Not Easy Being Green…When You’re Married.”
A shorter version of this piece appears in the Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters edition that was published in 2010.
I advocate a simple and honest approach to successful marriage. People tend to complicate love and marriage, but the truth is that Love is simple. Love is powerful. And Love is enough.
Send me an email if you’d like me to address a particular topic. And definitely pop into the Marriage forum to say hello and ask your questions and share your concerns. It’s free, private and fun. I look forward to hearing from you.
