Shit happens. I’ve lost track of the number of married men I know who have lost their wedding bands. Many men, including my husband, have lost their bands within the first year of marriage. In fact, if you are a married and still have your original wedding band, I applaud you.

The reality is, most men are not used to wearing sentimental jewelry. Thus, generally speaking, they don’t exercise caution when wearing their wedding rings. They don’t consider removing their rings before swimming in the ocean. They are blissfully unaware that their fingers shrink in cold weather, making the ring looser. They have yet to develop a protective reflex, balling their fist to prevent the ring from slipping off the finger. But when the chances of a man losing his wedding band is high, the question becomes, “When you lose your ring, how do you tell your wife?” Here are some dos and don’ts… Keep reading »

Finally, some relationship advice that’s actually useful. Selma and Kenny, who have been married for 72 years (holy crap!), offered up five tips (actually six — but who’s keeping track) for their grandson Brian and his new wife Sue on their wedding day.

My God, I love these two — especially when they talk in unison. I need them to make more advice videos. [Telegraph UK]

After nine months together, Kim Kardashian and basketball star Kris Humphries are tying the knot this weekend. Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner, has some advice for her wedding day. “Enjoy every moment and take mental snapshots and just try to remember everything because it goes by so fast,” she said. “You know it’s going to be over in the blink of an eye, and I just want her to remember every single second … The good news is we have a camera crew there to capture the whole thing in case she forgets anything.” Thank goodness?

But Kris isn’t the only one unloading wedding—and furthermore marriage advice—on Kim. After the jump, many, many others weigh in, whether they know Kim or not. Keep reading »

Why Am I Such A Jerk To My Husband?

While discussing my New Year’s resolutions, I flippantly threw out that I was going to try to be less of a sarcastic jerk when talking to my husband — you know, for the sake of my kids.

Yes, it’s true. I have caught my boys — even the 4-year-old — using some of my own special brand of sarcastic quips or passive-aggressive phrasings, and it has made me wince. Deeply. Read more Keep reading »
