Frisky Exclusive Q&A: Guy Proposes To His Girlfriend Via Whisper Chain

By now you might have seen the video above, in which a guy simultaneously sets a Guinness World Record (for the longest whisper chain at 59 people) and proposes to his girlfriend. But when I saw it, I realized something — hey, I KNOW that guy! His name is Jake Bronstein and you may recognize him as a cast member from “Road Rules: Islands” (1997) if you are as old as I am and a devoted watcher of MTV’s crap. Since then, he’s pretty much avoided the reality TV ghetto, instead working at a variety of men’s magazines, launching his own blog, Zoomdoggle, and helping to bring our new web series, “MERRIMe.com,” to the masses. The last time I saw Jake, he told me about his girlfriend, Kristina, and said he was “gettin’ engaged soon.” Little did I realize that their engagement would become viral video fodder. Jake was nice enough to tear himself away from engagement bliss to answer a few questions about his aww-inducing proposal. Get the scoop, after the jump… Keep reading »

Rorschach Test: Sex And Marriage Material

The Rorschach test is in the news. The entire 10 plates have been posted on Wikipedia and the controversy begins. The ten plates have been kept tightly under wraps for years. But now the copyright has expired. So it is quite natural to wonder: “Can a Rorschach test be used to determine marriage material? Can it tell us about intimacy? What about sex?” Continue reading Keep reading »

The Financial Acumen Of Trophy Wives

Trophy wives: there are few things to say about their morals, but their financial acumen is unimpeachable, says Daily Beast blogger (and former NY Daily News gossip columnist) Johanna Piazza.

Piazza figures that women like Katie Lee Joel, Anna Nicole Smith, Marla Maples and Heather Mills are only wives to men decades their senior for a few years. They’re stinkin’ rich divorceés, however, for the rest of their lives. A younger woman who shacks up with an old fart will suffer “bimbo” or “whore” name-calling left and right, but she’s actually quite savvy for parlaying a short-term investment as a Mrs. into long-term benefits as an Ex. (Courtesy of a generous pre-nup, that is.)

That’s quite a theory. But her point still doesn’t make me think Katie Lee and Billy are any less obnoxious. What do you guys think? [Daily Beast] Keep reading »

My Husband Wanted A Big Wedding—So He Planned It

My husband and I are married not because I said, “I do,” but because he said, “I’ll do it.”

Marriage Is Changing, Whether It’s For Better Or For Worse

While many fear that America is falling out of the marriage habit, and that, these days, all is bad in love and more, new stats show otherwise. Supposedly, 86% of women marry by age forty. This says something, considering that a 20-year-old article in Newsweek declared that “a 40-year-old single woman had a better chance of being killed by a terrorist than getting married.” Ouch.

Would The World Be A Better Place Without Divorce?

Coming from a divorced family, I have spent my life questioning the idea of a life-long commitment. Most of the adults I know have been divorced at least once, and of the couples who are still married, most of them (along with their kids) appear miserable. And so, while I would love to find a companion whose company I will enjoy “’til death do us part,” I’ve learned from observation that this just might not be a realistic goal. And is it so horrible to think that maybe we weren’t supposed to spend our entire lives with one person? Is traditional marriage the best — or only — way?
