Can Your Childhood Predict Your Luck In Marriage?

We live in unprecedented times. If you’re married, you’re a minority. For the first time, there are more single than married people. Apparently, the entire country of Sweden has decided not to bother with marriage.

Yesterday, our very own Amelia wrote an article about her inability to orgasm from almost all of her sexual partners—with the exception of one. However, despite the fact that she’s frequently unable to reach the big “O” when partnered, she still finds sex satisfying.

3 Main Reasons For Loss Of Sexual Desire In Couples

As a sex therapist, I often work with long-term, committed couples struggling with a variety of sexual difficulties.

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?

Does Everyone Wear Their Wedding Ring All The Time?

Does everyone wear their wedding ring (and engagement ring, if they have one) or is it just me who takes it off, uh, most of the time?

Comedian Aziz Ansari On The Ridiculousness Of Marriage

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 the “Today” show studio. King narcissist Kanye West…

“Romantic” and “macabre” aren’t two words you usually see together. But that’s how to describe the plight of James Davis, an Alabama widow who promised to bury his late wife Patsy in the front yard of their home — so that’s just what he did.

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,…

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.
