Welcome to Jen's Love Lessons!


Relationships are not easy. They're actually really difficult. From honing your ability to engage in effective conflict about who’s turn it is to do the dishes to figuring out how to balance your work life with your home life, trying to make a relationship succeed can be exceedingly exhausting and overwhelming.

This is where I come in. Hi, I'm Jennie. I'm an assistant professor of communication studies at James Madison University and the author of "Make Love, Not Scrapbooks: And 9 Other Research-Based Love Tips to Intensify Your Relationship" (you can read more about my book HERE or buy a copy of it HERE). Broadly, I study the communication skills needed to improve romantic relationships (you can read all about my academic life HERE). I'm married to my best friend, have three children, and absolutely love life (you can read more about my personal life HERE). JensLoveLessons.com is my research-based relationship blog. I decided to start a blog way back in 2008 and have been writing here ever since. I go through periods of writing a lot and ones where I only write a little (I guess a full-time job and three kids will do that), but I try my best to get something out at least every few weeks. On this site, you'll find articles about all kinds of topics related to finding "the one," improving your current relationship, creating a happy long-lasting marriage, raising children together, and even figuring out when it's time to call it quits

Don't know where to begin? Well, let me help you out with that. You could explore the links in my left sidebar (under "i want to learn more about"). Or you could start by reading my most recent post.
Still stuck? Here's a list of a few
of my most popular articles:
