Ironically, any astronaut should know the difference between radio interference and music

You do have to stay true to the things you have agreed on; anything else is breaking trust. But you don’t have to raise every little thing or annoyance that goes through your head. That’s self-indulgent — and a little boring.

Love at any age and stage, and in any package, and for any time frame, is magic. Celebrate it. And if you make it (happily enough) to the rocking chairs, wow. That’s a triumph.

We each have our own relationship “journey” and that means learning some things the hard way, down in the trenches. But, if you’re up for a shortcut, here are some things to ponder.

A thoughtful person can put their own “stuff” aside to see their partner’s point of view. Or at least listen to it. Being a “keeper” is even more important than finding one.

Sex is not a level playing field. Sexual drive and needs can change over time, with kids, stress, illness, hormones, life stages and just life itself. You both need to be up for finding some middle ground.

Everyone fights, it’s the inevitable fallout of being close to someone. Conflict can be healthy, it can help you address problems in your relationship which can make things better. But ongoing conflict erodes your mental health and makes you miserable. It’s bad for your kids too.

Seriously, this one hurts. Because you don’t know what’s going on. Because it’s hard to articulate. Because it’s hard to explain to your friends. Because you don’t even have the pleasure of having the remote to yourself. If you’re truly lonely with your partner, address it. And if they’re not up for that, you have the information you need to make your choice.

NASA’s explanation was straightforward. The radios on the command and lunar modules were interfering with each other, causing a strange sound to occur same as when holding a mobile near a speaker.

Love at any age and stage, and in any package, and for any time frame, is magic. Celebrate it. And if you make it (happily enough) to the rocking chairs, wow. That’s a triumph.

This can be hard to accept but some relationships won’t go the distance. It can be devastating, especially if it’s not your choice — but it’s not a personal failure, it’s an ending. Try to see it that way.

Being rejected in love is a human experience. So is being let down. But when someone you love keeps messing with you and/or hurting you, you need to walk away. Ask for help if you need it to do so.

Dating bad boys/girls, sparky, edgy, “crazy” people may be alluring but their drama will eventually exhaust and confuse you. Choose someone with whom you can fully relax. “Easy” is gold.

You should feel safe enough — physically, sexually and emotionally — to let your partner behind your wall. You should have the key to theirs too. Being able to express all your feelings honestly is healthy. Out of control anger is not just unhealthy — it’s scary. And dangerous.
