How To Tell Your Wife You’ve Lost Your Wedding Band

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…

Poll: Have You Ever Made A Marriage Pact With A Friend?

Last week, I was talking to one of my best guy friends about our various relationship dilemmas when he assured me, “It’s okay, Kate. All of this nonsense will be over once we turn 29, which is rapidly approaching.”

Study: If Your Gut Says Don’t Marry Him, Run For The Hills!

I’m a big believer in listening to gut feelings. Trust your gut, and you can never go wrong – and if things do go wrong, you’re way less likely to have regrets, because you followed your instincts.

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. The question of our culture has suddenly become: why get married? I recently married, and my friends ask, “So, how is it…

6 Bits Of Relationship Wisdom My Married Self Would Like To Tell My Single Self

I feel pretty good about my path toward a forever-partner. I dated a lot of guys, had numerous long- and longish-term relationships and a lot of premarital sex.  I don’t believe that marriage is “the end” of your emotional or sexual growth as a woman, but I’m also glad I did everything I wanted to…

Poll: Would You Marry Someone Who Can’t Make You Orgasm?

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.

Your “Significant Other Is Returning From A Business Trip” Check List!

Those of us with significant others who travel for work often spend days and weeks at a time alone. This solitude can be wonderful — control of the TV, a bed to yourself, tons of quality “me time.” What inevitably happens to us non-traveling partners is laziness. With no one watching, you end up forgetting…

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.

Study: Guys Who Help Out Around The House Get More Action — Well, Sort Of

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?

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…
