The other day I was talking to one of my friends and she mentioned that she had watched a show called Love Addiction the night before on television. At the time, I was distracted by my own relationship woes so I forgot to get details on the show. Fast forward to Sunday afternoon.....I'm sitting at home watching Martin reruns on TVOne. During one of the commercial breaks, I noticed some new show called Love Addiction being talked about. Immediately I thought this must be the same show that my friend was telling me about just days before!
So you already know ya girl hit record on the dvr. I ended up watching it later that night....well one of the episodes anyway. Now what I gathered from watching it is that each episode will feature a couple who is in a bad relationship. There will be family and friends there, along with some sort of relationship expert who will do an intervention.
The episode that I saw featured an interracial couple. The man was 29 and the woman was 51. His family and friends felt as though he should end the relationship because the woman was married and too old.
Now the counselor made a lot of interesting points. One in particular that resonated with me was that a man who leaves home and goes back and forth to his mother's house to avoid dealing with issues head on is still immature. Now I may not be quoting this exactly right but I think you get the idea. Now that is something that I can understand. An adult should be able to deal with his or her own issues without running back home.
