46    Love and Lust
Contrary to conventional wisdom, desire is alive and well in long-lasting marriages. What kills lust for today’s couples is not the sharing of all aspects of their lives but the lack of “give” inside the relationship. Zero-sum partner­ ships exact a high cost. BYVIRGINIARUTTER, PH.D.

56    Child-ol-a-try
Today’s parents dote on their kids and not enough on their relationship. Too often, they sacrifice inti­ macy. The result is a lot of depressive marriages.
BY JOHN GARTNER, PH.D.

62     Partners in Crime
From Leopold and Loeb to Bonnie and Clyde, people who murder often do so in pairs-but not as equals. There are dominant and submissive partners, and a dark instinct draws them together. BY KATHERINE RAMSLAND, PH.D.

70    Parents Just Don’t Understand
Moms and dads know their kids better than anyone. So why do they get so many things-from height to intelligence-wrong? Dis­ cover what’s behind seven common misperceptions.
BY NICK FRIEDMAN

78    Super Survival of the Fittest
Bad things happen all the time. While many people bounce back, others do much more; they bounce forward. Here is how some transform suffering into success.
BY DAVID B. FELDMAN, PH.D., AND LEE DANIEL KRAVETZ
