All You Need Is Love

Part of my process is constantly examining every part of my life over and over and dissecting it and worrying over it. Am I a good parent? How do my co-workers perceive me? The biggest one, after three ended marriages, is always "How did I end up in such a great relationship and how do I make sure it stays good?"

To that end, tell me some things about YOUR love life. If you could poke your friends into coming over here and giving me some feedback, that would be great.

The "red flag" question raised my eyebrows a bit. I'd be curious about factors people have found to aid success in relationships, rather than possible indicators of impending failure.

Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
