Comment : When the struggle to stand on your own feet consumes many, this is about someone who went far above that and helped many others become independent too. Although I wrote the book Untying the fine knots to help others through the sometimes blinding process of divorce, it comes as a surprise to me that couples and their parents find themselves helpless in the face of what they see as a bleak future. And I am reminded once again how real that feeling once was. I truly appreciate the help the lady - Arti - is giving and in doing so, helping them renew their lives!

Comment : It's a matter of how large the size of the pie is. Since we have a high unbroken marriage rate at least today, the number of available men would be small - that would be true for women too of course. To find someone who is like-minded among that small set.... that's a tall order.

Why does it feel impossible to find a sensible groom for an educated girl once she is above 35? Introductions via online marriage portals never seem to go to the next step other than the basic hello - are the men really not interested or do they get scared listening to an opinionated voice! Does it all have to be about cooking and traditional homely girl?

Comment : Probably love thrives best when we retain enough space around ourselves occasionally, sometimes more and sometimes less depending on our need for private space. This way, we reduce the moments of friction too. Something like – absence makes the heart grow fonder. But most of all, we ought to ask ourselves what love means to us personally. To some it might be a hot shared cuppa in the morning. To another it might be a long relaxed drive with the partner. And so on.

The spark, the wait and the love seem to be getting vanished after few years of marriage. Whether it's getting divided between the increasing members in family or somewhere getting vanished with this rush-over time of pseudo world responsibility..Is it really missing or somewhere the love awaits to be revealed ..it's just a hug away..What is your opinion?

Comment : How to spend or save money can be one of the many contentious issues in a marriage. The obvious reason is that the couple differs in what money means to them – the pleasure in the things it can buy (what to spend it on) or the feel of stability it provides (savings). When these pleasures or stability factors are critical to either of them, it can trigger deep dissonance. The less obvious reason is that while we are capable of managing plenty of differences, it depends on our readiness to manage these. If the marriage already carries deep dissonance, money simply becomes an additional factor and can even be the last straw on the camel’s back.

Money is never an easy subject to address, especially in a romantic relationship. If it's a live-in then it's even worse. But friction does happen over managing money, deciding whether an expense is a necessity or a luxury, if both partners should be equal contributors, if the one who is contributing more should have a greater say in matters of money? Questions are too many. But the biggest one of them is: can it break a couple, in spite of them being in love otherwise? What do you think?
