In Sickness And In Health Until Death Do Us PartWritten by Dr. Dorree Lynn
A simple love story
He was young and arrogant and intent on marrying an heiress. Long black hair flying behind her, she walked into his life. He thought he was superior to her. She didn’t notice, as she wasn’t least bit interested in him. Two years later, madly in love, they married. For twenty years, they fought, loved, fought through night, made-up and loved. They produced two wonderful children. He went on to be successful. He kept his pain subdued with scotch. She threw out bottles. He found new ones. They almost split, but he went to AA.

All You Need Is Love, Is Not TrueWritten by Dr. Dorree Lynn
The Beatles got it right when they sang: “All you need is love.” But, people tend to get it wrong when they don’t differentiate between being in love and what it takes to have a love relationship. After “kissing a lot of frogs,” hoping your prince or princess will appear, or after a demoralizing dry spell, falling in love seems like a magic potion that will get you through rest of your life.
Being romantically in love feels wonderful. Your beloved seems like most wonderful human being on earth. You are obsessed by him or her day and night, world is a shade brighter, and every love song seems to be sung especially for you. Those who have been in love know that it can be a glorious experience that brings out best in you and makes you feel as if you can accomplish almost anything.
But, many of you have also had experience where feeling of being in love has lead you into a relationship that is diminishing, painful, and has brought out worst in you. Suddenly, or over time, your heavenly feeling is becomes a life of living hell. How can this happen?
People are often confused by feeling of being in love and being in an ever changing love relationship. One can be in love but it does take “two to tango.” A loving relationship requires that both people mutually care about each other. It also requires five big “C’s”: caring, consequences, commitment, conflict resolution, and biggie---all relationships have difficulty continuing without communication.
Caring means both people are genuinely interested in welfare of and desire best for other. To do this you have to realize that person you love is different from yourself and what pleases them and keeps them happy may not be same things that keep you on top of world.
