Say What?

As far as strange competitions go, there might be nothing stranger than the wife-carrying championships. Couples — who don’t actually have to be married — complete an obstacle course while the woman is wrapped around the guy. Most couples use something called the Estonian grab — which is when the woman is wrapped ass-to-head around the man, though a few try to complete the course piggy-back style. Wife-carrying is a sporting event that originated in Finland, so it should come as no surprise that a Finnish couple won the race. What did they win? Five times the woman’s weight in beer and five times her weight in cash. [CNN]

5 On-Screen Couples Who Should Take Their Love Off-Screen

The summer is ending, which means we won’t be seeing too many more celebs-on-the-beach photos. (Wait, who are we kidding? Life is one long vacation for the rich and famous.)

However, we will get to see a fair share of awesome TV shows coming back this fall! We can’t wait to glue ourselves to the tube and watch the romances blossom between these five couples on our favorite series. In fact, they should probably take their romances off-screen, too. The chemistry is just too good! Here are five TV couples we think should date in real life:

1. Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester: ”Gossip Girl.” Come on, you know that their chemistry on-screen is pretty obvious — and to think that it all started in season one in the back of his limo. Read more …

4 Hot Olympic Power Couples

When it comes to the 2012 London Olympic Games, there are a few things we’re really looking forward to – and one of them is seeing the sexy couples that will be competing together or cheering one another on!

Shooters Russell and Lauryn Mark:

While some may think competition interferes with a relationship, here are four couples who show that love and championships can indeed go hand-in-hand. Australian Shooters Russell and Lauryn Mark have been making headlines recently as they are heading to the Olympics together, but apparently in separate rooms. The two—who married in 2004—were told they are not allowed to room together, while many same-sex couples are allowed two. Russell has two Olympic medals and two Commonwealth Games’ medals; Lauryn has four Commonwealth Games’ medals. Read more …

We’ve all planned dates and meetups with friends — but what about sexytimes? An article by “life intimacy coach” Kim Anami suggests that if you really want to maintain a sense of intimacy with your partner, you better get your iCals synced. “Knowing what we know about the power of sex to energize and uplift, mind, body and soul, it’s important to prioritize it in our lives,” says Anami. “To schedule it even.” In her practice as a couples counselor, she often recommends that couples designate certain times of the week as sex time. And she recommends that couples spend at least three hours per week having sex. Keep reading »

It is better to be single than badly accompanied: that is a truism of relationships that I’ve often reminded myself when the time came for a difficult breakup conversation. As we all know, time and distance can have blurring effects. You forget about the times he yelled at you in public or the snotty tone of voice he used when he talked down to you. You remember the cuddles and the kisses as if they were all you did, every time, even when you know this is not the whole story.

On Valentine’s Day — the day that is supposed to be about celebrating love and romance — it seems fitting to remember the guys who we are happy aren’t in our lives:
