Should Employers Question You About Your Relationship?

Approximately $6 billion in revenue is lost by American businesses as a result of decreased worker productivity linked to marriage hardship. Employees in a happy marriage, in contrast, tend to increase a company’s bottom line.g

Knowing this information, should employers question you on how sound your marriage or relationship is before hiring you?  I am sure this would be considered unethical.  However I can see how a company would love to find people that have a wonderful marriage or relationship to hire.  You could also do this study to find dive deeper what about those that have a wonderful sex life, or those couples that laugh more often with each other.  These areas could affect the bottom line in a business as well.  As much as I know how important a healthy relationship is for us individually, I know new understanding of how our happy relationships benefit the entire world!

Love Shared Til The End

I stumbled across this photo on the internet and looking deep into the picture I see two people that obviously loved each other very deeply.  So much so that as the end approached for them they found comfort in each others arms.  I am not sure if they new that whatever happened was coming or if it was a surprise.  Which ever way the end came for these lovers the support was there.  

Many might look at this picture and think it was sad or that posting it was in bad taste.  I however see the beauty in that these two individuals must have found safety in staring into each others eyes for their final moments.  I see a love that must have been powerful and a love that was shared til the very last minute of their existence.  Together they left this world so that maybe together they would return.

Make Some Money As A Couple

Most couples could use a little extra money.  Wouldn't it be nice just to have extra cash to go out and eat on or take a vacation without dipping into your finances?  Problems however come in as you try to find time to do this.  Putting extra time into a part time job doesn't allow much time for your relationship to thrive.  Well what if the two of you find something you can do together to achieve this extra money?

There are countless numbers of things the two of you could work on together that are very simple.   Things such as having a garage sale, mowing the neighbors lawns, or doing simple repairs.  If you keep an eye on your local paper some people will pay for simple help and advertise in the paper.  Other things you could do would be create crafts, candles, or paintings to sale at local festivals.   Use you creative side and have fun together while you are doing this.  

You might even be able to find something using technology to achieve this extra money.  What ever you find if the two of you can enjoy doing it together that extra money will be even sweeter.

Give Your Partner The Bird

Okay we all know what the middle finger raised alone means.  Does that have to be an angry gesture?  Sure people use it for when they get cut off in traffic and when they want to express distaste for others.  However could the F**K YOU term attached to this gesture be a term of endearment for your lover.  Maybe you can flip the bird to your partner when you want them to f**k you and that isn't a bad thing in this case.  The two of you could turn this into a fun little way to express your desire for hot and passionate sex instead of the anger that is attached to this gesture normally.  Can you imagine your partner giving you this sign from across the room and while everyone else things they are mad at you, the two of you know that a fun time is in store for the two of you.

The Couples Spot would love to wish all the mothers out there a special thank you for the love you bring to this world.  Being a mother isn't something everyone can do.  The amazing part is how being a mother is a bond that can be a strong as steel.  Yet so soft and warm that it becomes a special place for those within it's arms.  Take the time today to send special love to all the mothers in your life.  Be it your own personal mother or the mother of your children, let them know how truly special they are.
