How I Escaped Polygamy

I pulled the curtain back from the living room window in my small adobe home and stared at the dirt road winding down the little hill into Los Molinos. In the three years I’d been married to Verlan, this was the longest he’d ever been away. How many times in the past four months had I stood here, pretending his silver pickup was on that road headed back to me? Dust would billow high as he drew closer and entered the colony. He would stop at Lucy’s place first, like he always did. He would unload mountains of supplies into the shed and tell the family there hello. Then he’d stop at three more wives’ homes. Just before coming to see me, he would go to Lillie’s house. Read more Keep reading »

If A Guy Cheats, Guess Who’s To Blame? You.

Shanae Hall is like that wise friend you have who cuts through all your whining and obsessing to tell you exactly what you’d been avoiding telling yourself.

Not only is she an ex-NFL wife (of the Falcons’ Corey Hall), she’s also the co-author of the book Why Do I Have to Think Like a Man?, a book about dating, spoiled guys and our responsibilities as women in relationships. We were lucky enough to spend a few minutes picking Shanae’s brain … and, of course, we asked her about Favregate. Read more Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Fiancé Doesn’t Appreciate Me”

A few years ago when I was in college I was engaged to someone who was a little older and made me feel bad because I was always broke even though I was broke with a purpose (getting my bachelor’s degree). Now I have a job that pays me decent money but the hours are long. My day starts at about five while my current fiancé sleeps till about 8:45. Sometimes I get home much later than him and what little time I have left is spent looking up scholarships (I’m trying to continue my education and get another degree), studying for certifications (I work in Information Technology), and going to the gym (to try to avoid gaining weight like many of my counterparts who work behind desks). When all of this is done I have usually only a couple hours to myself during which time he harps on me about housework (which I try to keep up with but it’s hard with everything else that is going on). I feel exhausted and unappreciated to the point that sometimes I feel like moving out. I don’t know what to do. I feel I am very understanding when it comes to his shortcomings (he is constantly complaining that he is broke and therefore takes me out almost never). I feel like he should be more understanding with mine. — Tired of Being Tired

Dear Wendy: “My Fiancé Doesn’t Want Kids, But I’m Undecided”

I’m 24 and engaged to a fantastic guy I love a lot. He doesn’t want to have kids, though, which I’ve known all along, and I’m undecided about them. If my fiancé wanted kids I’d have them, but how can I know if I’ll eventually want to have children myself? P.S. I am really good with kids. — Not Sure About Children

Dear Wendy: “I Want To Get Married, But He Doesn’t”

It’s time again for a mega “Shortcuts Weekend.” For every question, I’ll give my advice in three sentences or less, because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. Today we discuss the marriage talk, moving on, offending one’s friends, and doomed relationships. Keep reading »

Why Susan Sarandon Never Married Tim Robbins

“I’ve always liked the idea of choosing to be with somebody. I thought that if you didn’t get married you wouldn’t take each other for granted as easily. I don’t know if after twenty-something years that was still true.”

– Susan Sarandon explains why she never tied the knot with Tim Robbins, her former partner of 20+ years. Well, Susan, the two of you certainly lasted a lot longer than many married celebrity couples, so you did somethin’ right. Sigh. Still not over this breakup.
