Dzhokhar Tsarnaev isn’t the only murderer accruing a giddy fan base. In yet another instance of Ted BundyÂ love-letter sending, one of the “Boys Don’t Cry” killers is going to be somebody’s husband. You know, because sexually assaulting a transgender man, Brandon Teena, and consequently murdering makes him such a great spousal candidate. More
As regular readers of my posts know, I have two different children from two different fathers and I have never tied the knot. I CHOOSE to live MY life as a non-wife. But what makes me so furious that I want to actually throw my laptop across the room are when readers have the nerve to call my children âillegitimate,â a word I havenât ever uttered. Ever.
If anyone came up to me and said, âYour children are BASTARDS and illegitimate,â I would punch them in the face and gladly take the jail time. More
It was only handful of years ago that every news outlet and your mom were buzzing about open marriages. You know, the whole “Do Open Marriages Work?” and “Is Open The Answer toÂ Infidelity?” So circa 2010. But the new type of relationship that is allegedly making the word “weird” fall from people’s lips is the highly illusive “commuter marriage.” More
Despite her marital advice on squabble-diffusingÂ blowjays, Gwyneth Paltrow says that her marriage to Chris Martin can be pretty tough. Like all relationships as the old adage goes. They may have been together through two kids and nearly 10 years, but it certainly hasn’t been a cake walk. According to Gwyneth, there have been “terrible times” in the Paltrow-Martin household.

No, there’s no on the record lofty quote by our GOOP goddess espousing this harmoniousÂ maritalÂ tidbit — although I wouldn’t put it past her. Good followup to the whole cookbook thing? No, no, no, Chelsea Handler just relayed some marital advice she overheard Gwyneth Paltrow give someone at a dinner party she attended. Hey,Â Gwyneth didn’t exactly deny it. More
When I was 17, I was in love with a boy who was my entire world. He was a few years older and enlisted in the military, going off to boot camp and serving in far away places throughout his military career. Meanwhile I finished high school and enrolled in college, trying to continue my life while writing daily letters, awaiting intermittent phone calls and widely spaced visits in person. At the time, I thought that he would eventually get out of the military, return home to me and then we would finally get married and raise a family. I was too young and naive to fully grasp what that plan truly encompassed. More
I have decided the only reason men act this way is because they think the women who follow their social media feeds will all think they are sorta unhappy with their spouses and that they all have gigantic peni and will send them nudes. Or something. More
Everyone cry for what is quickly becoming the new normal in the United States. It used to be that Natalie Portman strutting around the Oscars with her pregnant belly and her fiancĂ© was enough to ruffle some people’s feathers. Now, it’s not only the common scenario for a lot of women — but it appears to be working out. For now.
After those two minutes, itâs like we donât even HAVE kids (He has two children from a previous marriage. I have one. And together my fiancĂ© and I have the aforementioned most-adorable-baby-on-the-planet.) After our two minutes of talking about how fucking cute and brilliant our baby is, we really do spend the next couple hours, before passing out, talking about people or work or anything else that is bugging us.

His drinking has caused numerous problems for us in our 11 years of marriage. All of which are swept under the rug, and, for me, stored up as resentment towards this, otherwise, pretty awesome guy.
I used to think that I would NEVER get a divorce. And tomorrow I may feel that way again. But today, I am ready for it. Today, I hate my husband and see no change in his behavior in sight. More
Sometimes life just doesn’t work out that way. And not all women want to do things in that order. And shockingly enough, some women don’t feel like they need to get married. Not to mention this whole article ignores the reality that some single moms and dads just happen to be gay and can’t get married even if they want to.
Truth be told, I donât feel I need to love them and I havenât let myself even fall in âdeep likeâ with them either. I love their father, but I donât understand stepmothers who profess, âWell, I love my husband so of course I love his children.â I just donât have that bond.
Iâm okay with this. More
There’s an odd discussion in motherhood circles that I’ve never quite understood. It centers around the idea of balancing your role as a partner and your role as a parent, as if the two parts of your life are sitting at separate ends of a teeter-totter, battling for dominance.

In a sort of unintentionalÂ praise of wives who are more than decorative doormats, Matthew McConaughey got all braggy about how his wife CamilaÂ McConaughey tells him to “buck up” in the other half of their high profile partnership. The woman has three kids under the age of five. I doubt she’s a push over. More
