I am 27 and happily married. I have been married for 2 and one half years. Before our marriage I dated my wife for about six years. Presently, there is little wrong with my marriage. My wife is wonderful person who cares about me dearly. Several months ago I met a woman who in many ways ranks as one of the most extraordinary that I have ever met. I say this in terms of intelligence, maturity and personality. I am attracted to her as well. There is the possibility that she might feel the...

How can I get my husband to be romantic? I only knew him one month before I married him. People think I'm crazy, but we knew that we had made the right decision. The only problem is that I want some romance!!! Not roses or candy or anything material like that. A nice romantic evening, you know, fourplay and all!!! Rarely does our sex last more than 30 minutes. It doesn't even have to be sex. Just something surprising that makes me want him more than I already do. He could even surprise...

Dear Dr. Love, I have been reading your advice for some time now and would like your feedback on my situation. I was married for 11 years to a very successful man who was a workaholic. He also was very controlling, emotionally distant and quite a bit older than me. What seemed exciting at first, the posh parties, traveling the world was great but unrealisitic once we had children. Though I still attended many things with my husband it was never enough and in time, he was rarely home except...

When my boyfriend comes by my home after work, I would prefer that he takes a shower ( and cleans his teeth) before he lies in my bed, and especially before we make love. I enjoy sex so much more if he has had a shower.But he almost refuses to have a shower or cleans his teeth. I cringe and close my teeth together if we must kiss. And I hate have his sweaty body next to mine...Am I being unreasonable? When he leaves my house, the first thing I always feel like doing is to change my sheets.

I spend whatever money I have making sure the kids receive birthday and christmas gifts from their dad and myself. I take them to the park, dinner, whatever comes to mind once...
