Poll: Will You Change Your Name When You Get Married?

When I was a lot, lot younger, I used to think I would make my husband take my name; My dad would say, “Good luck finding a guy who’s willing to give up his last name!” I don’t feel that way anymore, but I don’t think there’s a good solution. The best I’ve heard is what Jay Mohr is doing. Last week, he petitioned to add his wife Nikki Cox’s last name to his own as a two-year wedding anniversary gift. So, his name will be Jon Ferguson Cox Mohr. [Mohr Cox would have been better. -- Editor] Thoughts? [E Online] Keep reading »

My 2009 New Year’s Resolutions

This week, The Frisky will be revealing their oh-so-ambitious resolutions for 2009. We encourage you to submit yours in the comments—maybe you’ll inspire others to adapt the same resolutions and at the very least you’ll get some support. Especially for your resolution to eat more donuts this year. That’s something we can all get behind. Catherine is up next…

1. Learn how to cook at least one new dish every month: I eat the same stuff all the freaking time, mostly because I am a picky eater, but also because I know how to make about three dishes. I really need to enhance my repertoire — at least until I can afford to have a personal chef.
2. Learn how to edit video: I don’t want to become the next Sofia Coppola or anything, just be able to clip together little videos of my dog in iMovie. (Confession: This was a resolution for 2008 I never accomplished.)
3. Do some sort of good in the world: I want to start volunteering. If you have suggestions, let me know.
4. Write letters to my grandmother at least once a month: Phone calls are nice, but they just don’t compare to handwritten letters. My grandma has been sick lately, and I want to send her special somethings in the mail so she knows I’m thinking of her. Keep reading »

My 2009 New Year’s Resolutions

This week, The Frisky will be revealing their oh-so-ambitious resolutions for 2009. We encourage you to submit yours in the comments — maybe you’ll inspire others to adapt the same resolutions and at the very least you’ll get some support. Especially for your resolution to eat more donuts this year. That’s something we can all get behind. Amelia will start…

1. Commit to going to yoga three times a week: And at the very least, getting into headstand. Forearm stand, I will tackle you in 2010. Handstand, see you in 2011.
2. Introduce myself to new music: And go to see more bands play live. I used to love doing this, but have stopped going on a regular basis. And I need some Ladyhawke and Little Joy to balance out all the Beyonce and Britney.
3. Curb bad behaviors: My bad behaviors are drinking too much wine and then eating copious amounts of mac ‘n’ cheese while sending regrettable Facebook messages. Must stop this in 2009. Keep reading »

How To NOT Date A Criminal

Women who fall in love with and sometimes marry psychotic killers — like Richard Ramirez (the Night Stalker) or Ted Bundy — have always fascinated me. I mean, why? Sure, people do tend to have types, but “big-schnozzed manorexic” is a far cry from “slitter of throats and raper of ladies.” However, I have to give these women some credit—at least those guys were still in jail and therefore unable to harm them when they hooked up.

Drew Peterson’s latest fiancé is more of a risk-taker. Twenty-four-year-old Christina Raines is set to marry 53-year-old Peterson despite the fact that two out of his four ex-wives were either murdered or missing and presumed murdered. Though he hasn’t been formally charged in either murder, he remains Suspect #1.

That said, most of us who’ve dated law-breakers go a lot less high-profile—here are a few signs that you might be seeing someone who lives on Johnny Law’s bad side. Keep reading »

Top 10 Excuses For Not Wearing A Wedding Ring

There are guys (and gals!) out there who do not wear wedding rings. Some of them have never had a ring (weird hand-fasting ceremonies, etc) and some just choose not to encircle the fourth finger on their left hand with a hunk of precious or semi-precious metal. I’m sure you know a few of them and their reasoning may even make sense. But a lot of the rationale is BS and doesn’t really hold up in the light of day. Here are our top ten excuses for not wearing a wedding ring. Keep reading »

For The Week Of December 29, 2008-January 4, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Let loose and have your baby show what he’s got, as in taking the reins and being in control. Although he’ll take a different approach than you, making you initially wonder about his abilities, have faith. In store is a surprise that’ll have you feeling as if you’re the smartest, hottest and most romantic couple in the world.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You have such a pleasant way about you that even when you bite off more than you can chew, others somehow find forgiveness in their heart to not even express an iota of irritation towards you. This week, when you do it again, know you’re playing the devil. Do try to say, “No,” when you can and save yourself from dealing with hell.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Being “accidentally” outted on one of your secrets by someone close to you will make you want to kill. However, going the violent route isn’t going to win you as much bliss as much as staying civil and using guilt as your weapon to slowly gut the offender and anyone else involved. After all, accidents can happen on two-way streets.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

There’s no reason to have to get specific about anything in regard to matters of love, sex and relationships. You are under no obligation to have to lay down any detailed commitment, as being vague will do. After all, painting a bigger picture will do far more for inspiring another than trying to haphazardly fill in the dots.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

With the new year here, time to see if your boo is really going to put his money were is mouth is, as all those promises he made have reached payback day. If he isn’t making the moves to ensure his words, time you start enforcing your deadlines. However, don’t be cruel, be tantalizing, as it’s the tease that’ll get your ultimatums met.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Your latest will inspire all sorts of sexy ideas to crawl to across your mind, making you one hot bed of smut. Thankfully, you’ll also be totally impatient and want what you want, when you want it — which is a fun change of events from your usual methodical methods. This time, the ride you’ll be giving will be so legendary; they’ll want to name a coaster after you at Six Flags.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Your tastes are impeccable, at least superficially speaking. However, this week, cue into something deeper. With choices that pop up now, there’ll be more than meets the eye and while the obvious will hypnotize, fight it. Realize the more intriguing and hotter match is beneath a more unique package.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Just when you think you’re onto the right path and that life will unfold in a manner you can comprehend and accept, in comes fate to test you. Yes, in blows a blast from the past that’ll make you curious. However, the story always ends the same — badly. To get a full recap, confer to your friends and have them intervene. They’ve seen it all and don’t want to see it again.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Remember, you‘re the sign of patience, so don’t rush it with a new prospect. Clear your mind of what you think you should be showing off about yourself and relax. Let him do the show-and-tell. You’re in prime position to sit back and enjoy the show, as pushing it to go faster and not taking time to develop a friendship first will result in awkward sex.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You’ll hear many promises made by your boo and all of which will sound too fantastical to even consider. However, surprises will come from strange circumstances, so strap on your suspension of disbelief and go with it. It’ll be the sexiest thing to put on this week, even if only for 15 minutes.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Your eyes will be bigger than your vagina, as hotness overload happens and they’ll be too many scrumptious bodies floating near your life, making you want to eat them all up. Luckily, your negotiating skills will be sharp and you’ll have a nice way you can finagle keys numbers into your pocket. However, what happens from there might be more talk than action.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You’ll be getting some headway when it comes to discussing logistical issues with your baby and dealing with those day-to-day tasks that cause petty arguments and somehow build up resentments. This is your week for the breakthroughs and getting it all back to mushy-mushy land, where everything he does will feel golden once again.
