Would you pass the Amnesia Test if you had to? Fellow husband, Kim Carpenter, did when he and his wife survived a near fatal car crash and his wife forgot who he was …

Who would of thought you could get some stellar relationship advice from a romantic comedy?

About a year or so ago, my wife and I were sitting in our living room, watching what I thought was a Hollywood chick flick, called The Vow. (Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum both played the lead roles in it.)

It’s often said in the relationship circles that women “need” love and men “need” respect; whatever the hell that means.
I’m not sure how that assumption came about or what statistics substantiate that claim, but I do know this, respect for most men is something that is demanded.
If we don’t get it, we get defensive, indignant even.
For some of us, it can alter our self-worth and esteem in our marriage. And those feelings can lead to feelings of inadequacy, contempt, and even resentment.

According to Dangerfield, his wife never gave him any respect. If only he were a Husbands Of Kaizen subscriber ... http://bit.ly/1BVQn5c

Did you know that approximately 150 million #Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually — making Valentine’s Day the second most popular card-sending holiday after #Christmas?
It’s pretty crazy when you think of it.
Actually one year, I didn’t think of it and I forgot to get my #wife a card, let alone the seasonal, obligatory token of consumerism … ahem, I mean, “#love.”
What a freakin mistake that was! But I’ll tell you more about that in a moment.
First let’s figure out …

I don’t believe in marriage equality.
At least not according to the convoluted meanings and contexts that populist thinkers and organizations try to push.
What does it mean to be equal any way -- that everything is split 50/50 in marriage, perfectly symmetrical, like an apple pie?
There’s only one context in which I believe in equality; and it’s as a human being.
I’m equally human relative to my wife (and to my fellow Homo sapiens). But I’m also superior to her in other ways.

If you’ve been married for any length of time, then you know that apologies come with the territory.
“Honey, I’m sorry for not taking out the trash the other day. I’ll take care of it now.”
“I’m sorry that I didn’t tell you Joe was coming over to watch the #game today.”
“I was gonna put #gas in the #car, I completely forgot. Sorry.”
We say it all the time, sometimes by reflex and other times through contrition.

For most men, drinking beer is fun and enjoyable (myself included).
For others it’s a serious addiction. And for some other men, sharing a well-poured pint isn’t congruent with their core values and is to be avoided at all costs.
Note: If you struggle (or have struggled) with alcoholism, please disregard this article altogether.

There is a great book written by Jeff Olson called The Slight Edge. I try to read it at least once a month.
If you haven’t already read it, I urge you go to pick up a copy.
Jeff talks about how our future successes and failures are quite simply determined by the tiniest, seemingly insignificant actions that we take (or neglect to take) on a regular basis.
Things like eating an apple a day … saving ten percent of your income … exercising on a consistent basis …
