Ruling your nation with love should be everyone’s goal for 2016. I asked a few people what they thought was the greatest expression of love.

Dating Jerks: It’s not just for women.

Infidelity: The Wisdom of Esther Perel

I’ve always wondered why people cheat.  My foremost theory was a lack of love or integrity. As judgmental as that sounds, it can certainly apply in certain situations, but not all.
