Hitched: Should Marriage Be A Renewable Contract?

I seriously never thought I’d say this: I miss being engaged.

I don’t miss wedding planning, and I don’t miss being talked to as if, as a human with a ring and a vagina, I had no interests aside from talking about the details of “my” (so rarely, “our”) big day. I sure as shit don’t miss shopping for wedding dresses. I don’t miss getting Wedding Industrial Side-Eye because Patrick and I had, like, a wedding budget.

What I miss is the day-to-day experience of preparing to love someone publicly. Keep reading »

Let me make this clear: I don’t have a problem with dating a divorced man. No problem at all.

What I do have a problem with is when a divorced man isn’t up front about it.

Menfolk of the world, I’m going to lay down some real talk right now: if your online dating profile doesn’t disclose that you are divorced, the moment you explain you are really “divorced” and not just “single,” I immediately think you are acting shady. Even if you weren’t trying to hide it! Even if you just married her so she could get a green card! Even if you have been divorced so long you’ve forgotten her middle name!  Keep reading »

I already kind of suspected love was dead, but now, I know it to be true. I’m sorry, allow me to be more specific about the cause of my angst.

The Reality TV Wedding Curse: What Happened To 14 Couples That Married On TV?

Over the holiday weekend, “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel announced that she and husband Jason Hoppy were separating. Frankel met Hoppy while filming “Housewives,” and the pair were treated to two Bravo spinoffs about their relationship: “Bethenny Getting Married” and “Bethenny Ever After,” which chronicled their wedding and marriage and the birth of their daughter Bryn.

“I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family,” Frankel tweeted on Sunday.

But should she have seen it coming? After all, couples that get married on TV don’t have the best track record. In fact, we’ve taken a tally, and it seems that couples that undergo televised weddings have a rather lousy rate of success. We’ve gone through and looked at some of the couples who made it down the aisle with the world watching. Take a look and tell us whether a televised wedding would work for you.

The Pros And Cons Of Dating A Divorced Man

Happily Divorced
We shouldn't shame folks for realizing their marriage just won't work out. Read More »

Two years ago, I met a gentleman I shall henceforth call James, because his name was, well, James. James and I had a first date for the books. It lasted a full 10 hours (we’d met up for coffee at 3 p.m. on a Saturday), and we discussed everything from the rudeness inherent to chronic lateness to how we both hate the book Confederacy of Dunces. We discussed how embarrassed we both are by this latter fact.

I knew about James like you know a good dye job. Here’s the one for me, I thought. The man I’ve been looking for years. I just KNOW.

There was one little problem, however, and that was that James already had a wife.  Keep reading »

Couples who divvy up washing dishes, cleaning the laundry, and other house chores are more likely to get divorced than couples where the woman does the homemaking by herself, according to a Norwegian study of thousands of couples called Equality in the Home.

In the study, which looked at 2007-08 data, researchers found that the 25 percent of married couples that shared housework were more likely to get divorced, compared to the 71 percent of households where the woman was in charge of doing all the chores. Interestingly, having men do the majority of the housework didn’t bode well either.  Keep reading »

Heidi Klum And Seal’s Divorce Gets Ugly

Heidi Klum’s divorce from Seal seemed so very drama-free … at first. Now things are getting ugly, according to a report in Star magazine. First, Seal contested Heidi twice—first he fought her request for primary physical custody of their kids (he wants equal time), then he said she was wrong when she claimed no joint assets needed to be divided. (There’s quite a bit of difference in their fortunes—Seal is worth just $15 million to Heidi’s $70 million.) But now Heidi’s the one who’s angry, Radar reports. Read more …

Married Women Drink More Than Married Men, Study Finds

New research has found that married women are drinking more than married men after tying the knot. Presented at the American Sociological Association meeting in Denver, the findings were derived from one long-term survey that provided information on more than 5,000 Wisconsin residents’ alcohol habits, gathered four times during a 47-year period. The research suggested that while men drink more than women overall, women’s “increased drinking after marriage might be an attempt to match their husband’s habits.” Interestingly, the study found all that changes if you get divorced: suddenly-single men drink far more alcohol than married men, while divorced women drank less than married women. They’re relieved, I guess!
