As a lefty I'm biased, of course, but good to see that science backs up my claims to my wife all these years. http://buff.ly/1hzQ3TP

Living, working, and traveling the world 24/7
Introduction

Making a relationship work takes, well, work. You know this, of course. At least intellectually.

But the movies, books, and ads that are so prevalent in our world can’t help but influence your thinking. They would have you believe that it’s a magic spark, a love at first sight, or a deep psychic connection where you just know what each other needs.

Cue the romantic music.

That emotional part of your brain often overrides the logic you know to be true, and you start wondering why your relationship doesn’t measure up to what you see all around you.

We’re here to call BS on all that nonsense. You watch a mushy movie or read a trashy romance novel for entertainment, not instruction.

So let’s get back to that “work” concept from before. While we’re in agreement that a good relationship does take work, it shouldn’t feel like work, at least not in the way you’ve looked at work before.

This kind of work is teamwork, and it’s what we’ve been learning in depth since 2008, when we first decided to remake our lives and live, work, and travel together 24/7.
