Rewind to the Good Times!‏, Larry James

Rewind to the Good Times! Happily ever after is complicated. Happy weddings are a dime a dozen, however, happy marriages are much more rare and therefore more precious than gold. It's important to think to the future, say, 50 years down the road and wonder if the person you have chosen - with things sagging and the wrinkles more predominant, etc., etc., - is this someone you will still be excited to be with and love? Or will you say to yourself, "What the hell was I thinking?" I … [Read more...]

A Red Rose Bud For Her Pillow…‏
