NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, ONT.— From Saturday’s Globe and Mail
I’m sitting in a hotel room in my undies and a white robe, bare toes in slippers. My husband, Mario, robe open at his chest, is gesturing. He’s telling the blonde across from him how I take my coffee.
“And can you describe Karan’s perfect day?” asks Ashley Howe, a family and couples therapist, as she leans forward, twisting a pen. Mario describes a day at a museum, followed by a hike in the woods and then a family dinner, and, then, maybe, a movie.
