Author Monique A. Honaman wrote "The High Road Has Less Traffic: honest advice on the path through love and divorce" in response to a need for a book that provided honest, real, and raw advice about how to survive and thrive through one of life's toughest journeys. The second book in the series, “The High Road Has Less Traffic ...
and a better view” (2013) is all about providing perspectives. She is not a divorce attorney, nor a clinical psychologist, or a marriage therapist ... just a regular person like you — having experienced the complexities of love, marriage, divorce, parenting, dating, remarriage, and everything in between. Her goal is to share perspectives from life along the way that are inspiring, motivating, and thought-provoking ... and, of course, at times witty, sarcastic, and challenging.

Fishing with the Right Bait!

I wrote a post for eHarmony back in August 2013 called How Dating’s Like Fishing: Hook, Line and Sinker. That post focused on the fact that if you always fish in the same pond, you are always going to be catching the same fish. It was about switching up your dating routine and finding new ways […]

‘Bonus’ Parents

Are You Searching for Your Soul Mate?

“Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you I had no control over.” I was bumping around Facebook the other night, and I came across a post which one of my friends “Liked.”  The title peaked my curiosity and I clicked on the link (My Husband is […]

‘Accept Me As I Am!’

“Love is when you think you can change someone, but they end up changing you.”  ~ Jessica Lawis I spoke with someone the other day who was gushing about how serious she is getting with her boyfriend. She thinks he is “the one!” She pulled out her iPhone to show me a photo of him. Then, […]

How Dating’s Like Fishing: Hook, Line and Sinker!

Can Relationships Become Too Comfortable?

“When you stop being nervous is when you should retire. I’m always a little nervous for anything I do because when complacency sets in, that’s when I feel it’s time to move on to something else.” ~ Chris Jericho Justin and I have been married for four years. We aren’t as “cautious” and “careful” around […]

Why Decisiveness is Sexy

“Decisiveness is a characteristic of high-performing men and women.  Almost any decision is better than no decision at all.” ~ Brian Tracy One of my favorite things to do is go for a walk with a friend and have a great talk at the same time. Some friends meet for coffee, or for a glass of […]
