New Social Networking Site Thinks Women Need Wives, Too

A new social networking site wants to re-brand female friendship. Frenemies, be gone! Bye, bye BFFs. Hello “wives.” It’s the newest term for your closest lady friends and allies. I know what your thinking … that word has kind of already been claimed. But Band of Wives, a new social networking site, wants to reinvent the concept of “wifehood.” According to the site, “It is time for women to sustain each other … we all need wives. Not in any weird kinky way, but life is more complicated and stressful and we need deep connections with each other to live happier, healthier lives.” The site provides a virtual community to provide support and nurturing for women’s careers, talents, and passions because we’re tired of men reaping all the benefits of the institution.

I don’t dress for breakfast, and I’m lazy about sewing on buttons. Keep reading to calculate your score. [Monitor On Psychology] Keep reading »

However, a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine found that men were more likely to wear the CPAP machine if their wives slept with them, rather than in a separate bed.
