    No Love, Too Much Sex, Not Enough Money...

    ... I'm tired of hearing about terrible marriages. I have so many friends who after 5-18 years of marriage are totally unhappy, and in most cases, it's always "the spouse's fault"! We all need to take a good look at ourselves in the mirror and be reminded a solid...
