Great article Nick. More serious, to the point and fact-based than your prior gun issue article. Your comment about yogurt shops is applicable to the armed robbery recently in Carpinteria, scaring the staff who are 16 or 18 years old. Carpinteria's new organization, HopeNet is a response to the Santa Barbara suicides you mention. Highlighting the NRA's further extremist and nutty positions is a positive. This column should be required reading by Congress. These folks were elected to represent the people and the people need to wake up and vote the NRA toadies out of office who kiss the NRA's ass while taking their money. Finally, as a therapist, I encourage all mental health practitioners to ask all clients -1st session-if they own a gun. I'll keep my box of tissues and pass on the gun. Keep the conversation going Nick. Kudos. Toni Wellen

Interesting article Silvia and something couples would do well to discuss.

As a Marriage, Family Therapist, for 27 years, who has been married for nearly 40 years, very briefly, my personal and professional opinions:
The majority of couples I’ve worked with have two major problems in common: poor communication skills and they don’t know how to argue effectively. Good resources: “Love Is Never Enough” by Aaron Beck and http://www.gottman.com/49804/Self-Hel...
I generally help couples to: maintain a high level of respect and loyalty through the crises of life, respect each other’s individuality and sense of person space. Above all to remember why they chose each other and continue to keep their romance alive as they grow older together.
