Not Having the Love Life of Your Dreams? - Stay Happily MarriedPlay episode Subscribe via RSS Subscribe via iTunesSponsored by Rosen Law Firm

Are you not having the love life of your dreams?

With the rise of movies and television series over the last couple of decades, we have almost lost a sense of reality. We have genres such as comedy, romance and drama. Each of these almost always have a love story intertwined within the plot. These movies and televisions depicting different kinds of love stories may alter what we think is an ideal relationship in real life. We find ourselves striving for relationships that we see on television and in the movie theater. They give us a false sense of what a successful love life looks like. When we don’t achieve this cinematic love life we feel as if the relationship is doomed and unsuccessful. So, what do we do when we do not have the love life of our dreams?

Is your love life an erotic novel or abusive nightmare?

The 50 Shades of Grey trilogy has steadily remained at the top of the New York Times bestseller list for several months. The risqué nature of the book that once started out as Twilight fan-fiction is catching the attention of men and women across the globe. Aptly nicknamed “Mommy Porn”, the over the top erotic and abusive nature of the trilogy evokes visions of a modern version of The Story of O. Questions about the nature of the intense relationship between the two main characters and the book’s strong appeal to women are being discussed widely.

In marriage, how do you determine whether the dynamic between you and your spouse is healthy or abusive when behaviors encourage dominant and submissive relationships?

Are you and your spouse in tune with your true selves?

Our twenties is the time for identifying who we are and what we want to do with the rest of our lives. We go to school to get our degrees and discover careers options that maximizes our talents and skills all the while finding that certain someone to start a family and share our future with. We start to grow older as a unit as the years go by. We settle into life-long careers while the children take piano lessons and play sports for school. But, what happens when you haven’t discovered who you truly were before getting married and starting your family? Eventually you will have to find yourself and it can be a messy journey. How do you go about finding yourself? How does not knowing who you truly are affect your loved ones?
