I got the idea from the enthusiastic comment sections a few weeks ago, when I posted about a specific relationship issue that Jim and I were having. In fact, maybe it WAS Jim's idea... Hmm. (Next marital issue: taking credit for the other's ideas.) Anyways, I was kind of surprised, because I sometimes worry, like most bloggers do, about whether my honesty crosses the line into exploitation. I had been wondering if he would find the specific content of those posts erring on the side of Too Much Information, but in fact, he kind of liked the ability to consider the subject through the eyes of commenters. We both noticed that everyone seemed able to relate, and eager to compare notes.
So I guess that's what the purpose of this site will be, if you all are on board with the idea. I'll try to post a discussion topic at least once a week- most likely taken from a recent experience in my own relationship- and then get a good comment thread going, and hopefully we'll get some suggestions/guest posts from you all, too. Like I said above, anything goes, we're just looking for honest dialogue here. It's free group therapy, because in these Troubling Economic Times, who can afford to pay for it? Or a divorce, for that matter? Come here instead!
