One fascinating aspect of my work as a couples/ family therapist is that it gives me an intimate view into the current cultural dynamics of couples.

For the last twenty or so years, over half the couples I see contain the "nice guy" with his frustrated wife.

Yom Kippur, the Jewish holiday of repentance, had barely been over for 14 hours and I was already fighting with my husband. Over our poached kale and egg salads with a side of chickpeas I notice my firecracker friend is uncharacteristically glum.

Recent conversations with Millennials and 30-somethings have made me feel even better about my age and lucky to have spent my Millennial dating years pre-internet, well before the current awfulness of online 'hooking-up'.

'Do you think God is punishing me for having sex with a man 20 years younger than me?

' This was the question I asked a close friend when I was about to file for bankruptcy back in 2011.

My friends are still (months later) telling me that I need to watch out and that I cannot possibly be the one for him since we met right out of the gate.

My husband and I have been together for over 20 years. We met in high school and watched each other graduate high school, college, and graduate school, find (and change) careers, and become parents.

We watched each other become adults and now we are watching each other age. I meet my friend Geraldine at a hip, local eatery in the heart of Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach.
