While it's not hard to find advice (most people are more than happy to give you their two cents), good advice is not so easy to find.

Rest assured that the articles below are based on over 40 years of research done on literally thousands of couple relationships. It's tough to get any better advice than that.

Articles are taken from a weekly couples series I have been writing for the Star Herald since October 2005.
