New York Times Takes A Look At Why Some LGBTQ Couples Refuse To Get Married

I didn't expect a can-usually-be-counted-on-for-fluff article about marriage in the Sunday Styles section of the New York Times to be so damn depressing. But I suppose that's a conclusion to be expected when one starts wondering, what's the point of it all?

One of the exaggerations/white lies I've been known to tell more than a few times is that I basically discovered comedian Aziz Ansari, aka Tom Haverford on "Parks and Recreation." See, back in, like, 2005, I was working at Maxim magazine and one of the pages I edited was the Jokes page. Each issue we spotlighted a…

Frisky Rant: Your Public Marriage Proposal Isn’t About Love, It’s About Your Need for Attention

What is it with viral proposals? Every day there’s another one splashed across my Facebook feed – a flashmob proposal, a concert proposal, a fake airplane crash proposal, a proposal where a guy serenades a woman with Bruno Mars’ “Marry You,” a proposal on "Ellen," a proposal outside…

‘Til Death Do Us Part (Not): Husband Buries Dead Wife His Front Yard & Town Isn’t Happy

"Romantic" and "macabre" aren't two words you usually see together.

The Soapbox: In Praise Of Premarital Sex

There’s a lot that I don’t remember from high school. Algebra. Most of the Italian language. But something my high school health teacher said about premarital sex is still embedded in my mind 10 years on. She said that on our wedding night, when we have sex with our (future) husband or wife, all the…

Girl Talk: On The Significance Of Names

Relationships and experiences are a big part of what defines who we are. For many, names become guideposts or signifiers of those relationships or experiences. For a long time, I couldn't accept my dad and so the allure of casting of the McDonell name felt like it might relieve me of some burden. Of having…

Frisky Rant: Don’t Assume I’m Taking My Husband’s Name

I got married on Friday. It is still all so very new that the wedding band on my finger distracts me every five seconds. It feels weird  — a blissfully happy weird — to hear the words "my husband" come out of my own mouth. But it's never too early, apparently, for people to just…

How To Plan A Wedding In Only Five Weeks (Without Going Insane)

I've always marched to the beat of my own drum. Whether it's what I write about, the clothes I wear, or the choices I've made in my career, I'm not one to do things a certain way just because that's how everyone else does it. But even I surprised myself when my fiance and I…

Let me start off by responding to those of you who thought I might be taking the New York Post profile about Stephanie Smith's 300Sandwiches blog too seriously. I have no problem with sandwiches -- in fact, Smith's blondie ice cream thing is making me drool…

Let's play choose your own relationship adventure. Suppose one day you make your boyfriend a turkey and Swiss sandwich on toasted wheat bread.

The Delusional New York Times Vows Column To End All Delusional New York Times Vows Columns

The New York Times Vows column is truly one of a kind. Week after week, the meet-cute stories land all over the spectrum, from the truly romantic to the strangely political to, very frequently, the totally twee and bizarrely short-sighted.
