Like canoeing? How about trips to the outer boroughs? Well, these and other routine-breakers may hold the key to a long-lasting relationship, says Dr. Art Aron.
Find out if your relationship is self-expansive: Take "The Sustainable Marriage Test.”
Love the show and this segment in particular. I realize how often I tend to skip those moments of 'capitalization' with my husband. It makes sense that shared novel experiences would juice up a relationship. I hope you'll have him back on the show!
During this segment, I distinctly heard the female host use the language "knocked up" to complete a pun on "self-expansion." Fortunately, members of my company's board, a company which offers matching grants at NYC pledge time, heard this as well. This helped our decision to decline our individual and corporate support of the station. Vulgarity is never in style, even humorously, but class is timeless. Perhaps smaller "lesser" stations than WNYC will benefit from our support as they model the standards of language and conduct that our younger generation can look up to.
