- "Glad you’re not here ," Star Tribune, June 17, 2007. "For couples weighing the pros and cons of separate vacations, here’s some advice: Think ‘we-ness.’ That’s the advice of John Buri, a psychologist and professor at the University of St. Thomas, and author of ‘How to Love Your Wife’ (Tate Publishing, $14). Buri, who has been married 35 years and is the father of six children, ages 21 to 30, would discourage separate vacations if couples weren’t also finding enjoyable shared activities. ‘The opposite of love? It’s indifference,’ he said. He has interests that his wife, Kathy, doesn’t share, but when he scouts for a high school boys’ basketball team, for example, she goes along. She’s even learned a little bit about the sport. ‘Over time, slowly, couples do need to find those things they have in common,’ he said." http://www.startribune.com/218/story/1248346.html
