In good times, happy couples laugh off trivial issues and petty annoyances with their partner.
When things are going well, she’d feel silly to get too angry about his socks left on the bathroom counter, his beard stubble in the sink, or accidentally touching her tush to the cold porcelain in the middle of the night because he left the toilet seat up again.
During trying times, her comment about which way to drive and get there faster is perceived as a personal attack, her wet towel on the carpet might cause him to yell with frustration, and her every failing might be magnified a hundredfold and become a relationship-defining ultimatum.
In the rough times, healthy communication between partners breaks down, and once-ready-to-forgive attitudes become so much more difficult to maintain.
That’s why we say that every happily married person can answer this ONE question.
Did you ever play the boardgame Battleship when you were younger?
If you’ve never played, the rules are simple: it’s a guessing game where you sink your opponent’s hidden ships when your “torpedo shot” guesses about the location for each ship on a grid are correct. Whoever sinks the other player’s full navy first wins.
If you and your “ship’s mate” significant other have been recently awash in screen time and looking to try a different tack in the romance department, here's why we think playing Battleship is a fun game for couples to play together during quality time-- no matter your age!
"I’m a beginner at poker”, she said before we started the game. Then she took all my poker chips (it seemed like she KNEW WHAT CARDS I WAS HOLDING!)-- plus three flawless 3 carat stones the game observers at the same party believed were genuine diamonds worth hundreds of thousands of US dollars. My super sneaky wife is the reason why. Here's the story...Plus I'll explain how if you ever lose a single stone you purchased from CubicZirconia.com, it won’t be expensive to replace.
Ever feel like your life in 2021 operates in only 3 modes:
Today I wanna ask each of our readers-- especially those in a committed relationship-- to hit pause. To take a breath. To slow down, and look beyond our daily routine.
To make sure we don’t take for granted something special that we experience so often that we may neglect to give it our undivided attention and unqualified appreciation.
I wanna ask you to stop and look around with full attention (which in today’s crazy, keyed-up, hectic and busy world full of routine, obligations, distractions and needs...is the only sure way I know of to appreciate what’s right in front of us).
"I'll be right back," she said with a suggestive kiss of my ear.
30 minutes later I found her asleep in my daughter's bed with her iPad on her chest and our little girl Maya curled up with her head under my wife's arm. In marriage with kids, things like this will happen.There's unscheduled sex and there's no schedule for sex.But in my experience over the years...one of the easiest ways to create the perfect environment for sex to happen naturally is to block off the time together and challenge your significant other to a sweet and spicy couple’s game night: like an old-fashioned game night with a naughty nipple twist.
I have a confession. It’s been over 5 years since I’ve swept, mopped or vacuumed, dusted, or done laundry. Before the verbal attack, you should know that my wife Mrs. Cubic Zirconia does little to none of this stuff either. Here's why we decided to invest in a housekeeper.
Today’s blog post will be a Godsend if you’ve been thinking over how to talk with your significant other about an important but tough-to-tackle topic you keep avoiding.
That’s because a movie that shows and tells a certain topic in a powerful way can be a PERFECT conversational opener for her to talk to him-- or vice versa-- about that topic in a non-threatening and totally natural way.
Sure you can just tell her she’s beautiful with a kiss as you walk out the door. But trust Mr. Cubic Zirconia, communicating something sweet (or spicy hot) this way I’m about to share with you is going to be so much more impactful.
This simple, free and highly impactful romance tip can be completed in less than 30 minutes. If you like to make her feel special, tthen this simple, free, and highly impactful romance tip we call “Private Message In a Book Just For Her” is something you should do at least once during the course of your relationship (especially if you’re a guy whose gal always has her nose in a book).
Does she sometimes read books after you do? Would she read a book if you gave it to her as a gift and said you were sure she’d like it? Or can you get your hands on a book she has in her possession and plans to read but has yet to actually start reading?
You’re gonna love doing this method to communicate a private message just for her, but not as much as she will enjoy discovering what you said-- and feeling so special at your thoughtfulness.
Here’s one man’s story of why I felt marriage was stupid...and as vehemently opposed to the idea...why for a long decade I was hesitant to get married (even for years after I found the woman who was the yin to my yang)...
Plus the FOUR factors that radically changed me to NOW…when I believe that:
Marriage is a commitment worth making (with the right person).
A good marriage is a truly great thing.
The right spouse can be an invaluable partner in the life you want to build.
While no one is perfect, we are each perfect for someone.Should you or someone you know read this?

Do you believe that “Life is too short not to share with someone special”?
Does “Live like you believe the best is yet to come” sound like a great life philosophy?
Would you agree with the truth that “Marriage isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.”
