    Jerry Hall Auctions Off Her Jagger Whites

    Jerry Hall, the supermodel from Texas that married Mick Jagger in 1990, has dumped more than just the frontman of the Rolling Stones. Hall is auctioning off her bridal dress, as well as the wedding gift he gave her, an embroidered Japanese kimono, for a modest $600-a-piece. While she’s looking to clean out her closet and donate the proceeds to homeless charity Emmaus, she has kept the prices cheaper than Jagger’s affairs! [Daily Mail]

    Happily Married Women Get Good Night’s Rest

    According to a University of Pittsburgh study, Caucasian women who have higher levels of marital happiness also have lesser risk of having multiple sleep complaints (i.e., trouble falling asleep, fewer early morning awakenings, and more restful sleep) than unhappily married women. “Divorced individuals tend to have more sleep problems than those who are married; however, among the married, we know very little about how differences in marital quality may be linked with sleep,” said Dr. Troxel. “The present results show that happily married women have fewer sleep problems than unhappily married women.” No word on how single people sleep.

    Damn You, Bill Murray

    I’ve had a crush on Bill Murray since I saw Groundhog Day and his studliness was further proved by the depressing lothario he played in Lost In Translation. So it’s with a sad heart that I report that Murray may not be the sensitive moper the world thought him to be. According to divorce papers filed by Murray’s soon-to-be-ex-wife, Jennifer Murray, the actor’s “adultery, addiction to marijuana and alcohol, abusive behavior, physical abuse, sexual addictions and frequent abandonment” led to their split. Apparently he also told her “she was lucky he didn’t kill her.” [The Smoking Gun] Keep reading »

    Manimony: Dollar Sign Of The Times

    How can you measure the success women have had in the workforce? Sure, there are lady CEOs, lady doctors, and even lady presidential candidates. But, you know, manimony — alimony for ex-husbands dependent on their wife’s wage, is truly a sign that women are bringing home the bacon! While one-third of wives make more than their husbands, only about 4 percent of men get manimony after a divorce. Apparently, despite their equal entitlement granted by The Uniform Marriage and Divorce Act of 1970, men still feel socially emasculated for asking an ex for money. We’ve come so far, but now the men are keeping themselves down. [CNN]

    The McGreevey’s Divorce Should Be Made Into A Movie

    Former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey and his wife, Dina Matos McGreevey, are going through a messy divorce right now. If you’ve forgotten, Jim resigned after admitting he’d had a gay affair. Now, Dina wants him to pay alimony, but he’s trying to paint the picture that the only reason they lived in luxury was because taxpayers took care of everything — the helicopters, the mansion, the use of beach homes, and the household servants — and they otherwise wouldn’t have had any of it. She says she missed out on at least 13 months of gubernatorial perks since he resigned, and she wants to be compensated for the loss. Keep reading »

    Divorced Women Are City Dwellers

    Last week, we saw that the less-populated West tends to be more man-filled than the East coast. Now, data from Australia is beginning to make us wonder whether highly populated areas, aka cities, are bad for relationships in general. According to census figures from Australia, in populations of more than 100,000 people, 12.5 percent of women and 9.6 percent of men were from broken marriages. Rural areas of 200 people or less had the lowest proportion of divorced or separated women. This raises a many questions. Is there something about city life that causes people to divorce, or are the type of people who would get divorced anyway drawn to city living? Do less people get divorced in the country because there are fewer options and you’d better stay with what you’ve got if you want anything at all? [SMH.com.au] Keep reading »
