I'm not sure if any of our readers would seriously look to Victoria's Secret models for marriage advice, or realistic perspective on...anything ever, but Miranda Kerr has caused quite a ruckus when she recently revealed the success of her marriage with Legolas. Apparently doing big things (writing books, making skin care products, etc.) in a recent interview for Net a Porter's online magazine, The Edit, Kerr was quoted saying the following:  “I think it ...

In the U.S., the bride and her parents are expected to pay for the wedding, the gown, and to be in charge of the wedding arrangements.  However, in China it is the opposite. Instead, grooms are expected to pay a “bride price” – ordinarily $10,000 – often alongside purchasing an apartment and a car.  A more traditional and old-fashioned practice, these wedding standards are taking over China and redefining marital practices, ...

Recent research has progressively shown that sex is a more emotional act for men than it is for women. Since men often communicate their feelings via action rather than speech, it makes sense that they take notice when sex diminishes in their relationships. Justin Lehmiller, a Harvard University social psychologist studying sexuality observes, "For some men, sex may be their primary way of communicating and expressing intimacy. [It] takes away their primary ... Read More
Tired of fielding questions about your enduring singleness from prying family members? Why not rent a significant other for your next family gathering, and nip those harping questions in the bud! This tactic, which might at first sound like something out of a romantic comedy, has become a viable option for women in China. Scouring the classified ads in China will yield postings for proffered male companionship...for the right price. Though sex is not an entry on ... Read More
In another idiotic article by Fox News, Suzanne Venker continues to argue that feminism is a scary, evil monster destroying the American familial institution and all the happiness in the world. Discussing feminism’s role in the destruction of pre-1970s perfect marriages, she says, “Feminism didn’t result in equality between the sexes—it resulted in mass confusion. Today, men and women have no idea who’s supposed to do what.” ... Read More
What’s been missing on TV? More reality shows centered around about people being mean to each other. Yes, having a bad girl or boy that's easy to hate makes for good entertainment. There are loads of scripted shows out there based on revenge, that include pranking; and any story involving love is going to have it’s fair share of drama. But when did we find the need to see the reality of this? Well, the Oxygen Network thinks this is exactly what we were ... Read More
The words “save the date” immediately bring forth images of white gowns, floral arrangements, and choosing between chicken or fish. But the film Save the Date, directed by Michael Mohan (who co-wrote the film with Jeffrey Brown), doesn’t focus on those clichés. Instead, it centers on Sarah (played by Lizzy Caplan), who’s trying to figure out what she wants in life. Instead of saying yes to her boyfriend Kevin’s public proposal, made soon ... Read More
News broke yesterday that Kristen Stewart is not just involved in a fictional love triangle with a werewolf and a vampire. In fact, she is the tip of an all too real equilateral between her, her Twilight co-star/(ex?) boyfriend Robert Pattinson and the director of her last film, Snow White and the Hunstman. Not only did she commit infidelity in her own relationship, but she made the other dude an adulterer. That's right, he's married. Kristen is apparently ... Read More
Ok, so I’m a complete sucker when it comes to weddings and proposals.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to fight back tears and giddy shrieks watching Jim and Pam over the years.   And while I'm not entirely sure how I feel about popping the question in public (let alone in the middle of Madison Square Park with music, costumes, and choreographed dancing), I must admit this video totally made me swoon.  You need to a ...
