The Reluctant Therapist: Musings on marriage

Spring is the season full of promise and wonder—new life, new possibilities and a return to the vitality of a world come alive after a long, dreary winter. Sounds a bit like the seasons of marriage—which begin with eternal hope, basking in the warmth of love and connection and then slowly fading into periods of waning light, disappointment and loneliness, followed by the cold, feelings of anger, despair and loss. 

But like the seasons of our natural world, which regenerate each year after periods of dormancy, marriage can also flourish again, once the darkness has lifted and the new growth is tended to and nurtured. Tune in Tuesday at 2 pm for a conversation with Elizabeth Barrett, the Reluctant Therapist, about marriage in the modern era and how to improve the love and find comfort in the ties that bind our lives and keep us together.
