Are We Built For Monogamy?

By | Commitment, Intimacy, Marriage Advice, Relationships, Romance, Successful Marriages | No Comments

I get this question a lot.  As a matter of fact, my 25-year-old daughter just asked me tonight.  (I thanked her for the inspiration of the title of this article). She asked, since I specialize with infidelity and help people who are in danger of getting divorced.   I understand that question. There are some real concerning statistics. I would say that we have wiring in the brain that is there to help us as individuals and our species survive.  Some…

Relationship Mastery: Bring the Best Out of Others

By | Family Relationships, Relationships | No Comments

You are a powerful interpersonal center of influence.   It only takes ONE in a relationship to bring the best out of others.  It doesn’t matter if this is a personal or a more casual relationship.  You have the power. In other words, you have the ability to affect others in both negative and positive ways.  You are not a neutral force; it is impossible to be neutral.  Think of a time when you were at a social event and there…

Love is circulation.  The more we give it, the more we receive it; the more we receive it, the more we give it.   Co-dependency is not love because co-dependency is giving to others with the habit of sacrificing yourself.  This giving cannot be sustained because the co-dependent person burns out, grows in resentment and ultimately can hate.  This happens because the codependent person is closed off to self-love. Self-love requires accessing your needs and wants; your true self- the…

Harvey Weinstein- Sex Addict or Power Hungry Narcissist

By | Addiction, Relationships, Sexual abuse, Sexual Addiction | No Comments

Reportedly, Harvey Weinstein is off to sex rehab.   Maybe that is true or maybe he is on a vacation at some resort.  Whatever it is, there is something amiss here.   First, addict is a misleading word.   Many in my field have mixed feelings about that word.   It implies that he had no control.  It also implies that the center issue was around a lack of control over his sexual impulses.  I don’t believe that was the central…
