Three vital things to know.
How do you know? What do you do?
Re-thinking marriage can help you and your partner can create the kind of life you want together—and in the process help change our society.
What you feel depends on your own history with others and the current situation.
“It doesn’t work for me” is a powerful statement of my position without putting anyone down.
Too often couples are advised to create a transactional form of marriage—“you satisfy my need, I satisfy yours.”
Negotiate disagreements. Conflicts need self-reflection.
You have been “doing gender” in dating and marriage without even knowing it.
Needs vs. wants—it’s not just semantics.
Doing “slow love” (choosing multiple pre-marital partners, having friends with benefits, or living with partners) is a good thing. Don’t worry that marriage is going out of style.
Hearing those wedding bells? It’s time to have the kind of serious conversations that will set the stage for the equitable, sustainable, and satisfying marriage you want.
Collaborative negotiation can help your marriage be fair and equal.
A new approach to marital fidelity is needed, one that has been called the “new monogamy.”
Self-aware men build better relationships.
