The Marriage Of High Hopes

Tom and Susan walked into my office. No, this was not a formal session. Just a couple of friends and me sitting down to talk over their relationship. They had been fighting on a regular basis, like a couple of days out of every week. Some of it had to do with his anger, jealousy and past experiences. Some of it had to do with her sharp tongue and dominating personality.

He might start trying to do those things and my mind already is made up. I want out.”

Hey Men, Do You Have Feelings?

Because most men are basically strong and tough, emotionally if not physically, women often take that for granted and are excepting them to be invincible. Intrinsically? Yes.
