Here's the latest article from award-winning author and humorist, Kristen Houghton for MARRIAGE at BellaOnline Magazine.

Marrying Your Best Friend’s Ex
Remember back in high school when your best friend broke up with a boy and you wanted to date him? It broke up your friendship. It's the same when we become adults...

"Would you consider marrying a close friend's ex husband? Do you know it could affect all aspects of your life? Friends and family would take sides. Your close friend would quickly become your former friend and you may find yourself missing her friendship more than you'd realized. Before you even think of dating her ex,let alone marrying him, ask yourself two questions: is it love or lust and is this guy worth the upheaval your marrying him would cause?

If you have ever been in this situation or, if you have indeed married your friend's ex, I'd love to hear from you. Send me an e-mail and your story could become a follow-up to this week's article.

Be sure to read next week's article titled, "Zero Sex Drive." The article deals with the sadness of a sexless marriage due to post surgerical physical and psychological problems. Many couples have successfully faced surgeries on one of the partners only to discover that afterwards their sex life becomes non-existent. Is there help? Most definitely. Read what you can do, and where you can get help, to get your sex life back on track.

Until then, live well and love well because every day is a miracle!!
