Our Must-Read Marriage and Relationships Articles

This week, we wanted to highlight a few of our favorite recent articles on marriage and relationships.

Up first, The Joys (and Challenges) of Sex After 70. The New York Times took a deep dive into the sex lives of older couples. When interviewing them, they stumbled upon an unexpected and hopeful insight: for some couples, sex in the final decades can be the best they've ever had.

Up next, Can MDMA Save a Marriage? As scientists expand their research on psychedelic compounds like Ketamine, Psilocybin, and MDMA, a new line of inquiry is emerging -- the effects of these drugs on relationships. This article explores the benefits (and risks) of using MDMA as a way to break through long-standing conflict in relationships. Will this become the next breakthrough in the way we think about marriage therapy? We will see.

Next, want to stop fighting so much? Check out the counter-intuitive take of The Secret to a Fight-Free Relationship. What's the secret? This article explores the power of using time to delay difficult conversations. This isn't the usual advice, but waiting before talking about conflict helps many couples dial down the intensity of their disagreements so they can talk more constructively.

Finally, adding ourselves to the list, we wanted to let you know about the release this week of an interview we did with Joe Saul-Sehy on his Stacking Benjamins Podcast. Joe is a personal finance icon and author of the new book Stacked: Your Super Serious Guide to Modern Money Management. We talk about the 80/80 model and some of the hidden origins of the 80/20 and 50/50 models.
