long list of marriage and relationship blogs. The list has grown so long that I can't keep up with all of them every week. Here is a sample of a few I've looked at within the past several days.
Patty Newbold has been writing Assume Love for over six years. Her combination of deep compassion and practical solutions to tough problems is a winner. Patty looks for solutions to problems in a way that gives both partners what they want. Her approach is designed to help people discover more love without turning marriage into hard work, and without trying to change their spouses.
Speaking of Marriage is a startup marriage blog by psychotherapist Winifred Reilly. She says that her goal is to help people "make sense of why marriage is so predictably difficult, frustrating, and seemingly impossible to navigate." She has just a few posts so far, but all are top quality. Reilly writes insightfully about the commitment it takes to stay the course, overcome the obstacles, and create something worth working for.
The Great Jollyhoombah isn't always directly about marriage, but it is all about the mindset and lifestyle choices that make a great and satisfying marriage possible. C.J. and Tammy Renzi turned their lives around and have been having a fabulous time ever since. Their readers have a lot of fun, too.
Black and Married With Kids is one of the most prolific marriage blogs I've found. Typically, there are several new posts a day. There are many different contributors, with many points of view, so the quality varies. But nearly everyone will find something of interest here, including parenting advice, celebrity news, financial information, social issues, and relationship tips.
The Gottman Institute Relationship Blog is backed up by decades of solid research. Here you will find dozens of great articles with practical advice on how to build your marriage by following the best principles, and how to avoid, or recover from, the mistakes that can tear a marriage down.
