Love love love the analogy you made with marriage and a job!! Truth be told, marriage is one of the hardest things (I don’t want to call it an actual job) a person could do. It can also be one of the most rewarding commitments you can make. And sticking with that analogy, same way you want to get a promotion on your job, you also want to move your marriage forward and grow together, emotionally, sexually, financially, etc. as a couple and as individuals. In the same manner that you have performance reviews at your real job, couples should try scheduling reviews on a regular basis as well. My husband and I have these ‘family meetings’ every 2-3 months. These are the ‘no texting allowed’, ‘TV turned off’, ‘giving each other undivided attention’ kind of meetings. I send meeting invitations and the meetings are scheduled (with reminders) on our smartphone calendars and everything so that there is no confusion on the date and time (a little anal, maybe). Sometimes we discuss vacations we need to plan and save money for, or give each other professional advice with work situations, or if we’re ready for children, or how we’re doing with our plan to save money for a rainy day and for our golden years. And then there are those times when one person needs to get something off their chest in a safe, non-threatening tone. At these meetings, it’s all put out there and at the end, usually no one’s feelings are hurt and we both have more understanding with each other and about our marriage. Your peers and management at work provide you with constructive feedback. So why shouldn’t your most important partner/co-worker do the same? So, I would say to all couples that we need to invest as much training and continuing education in to our marriages as we do our professions.

OAN: I think sex brings out such interest with everyone because it’s the one thing we all have in common. Everyone may not be an artist or a musician or a doctor or a teacher but most EVERYONE has done “the do” or is thinking about doing “the do”. See…you’re thinking about it right now aren’t you? ;-)
