8 Reasons It's Offensive That You Keep Asking Me If I Want Kids

“You don’t want kids? Don’t worry. You’ll change your mind.” I’ve heard those words uttered thousands of times whenever I tell someone I don’t want kids, but each time is just as infuriating as the one before. It’s true, let me shout it from the rooftops: My husband and I don’t want kids.

It's hard to fathom that in this day and age, there are still people who disgrace others based on not only their skin, but who they're dating. This should go without saying but sometimes you can’t help who you fall in love with — And you shouldn’t have to.

10 Love Quotes People Share All The Time (That Are Just Creepy)

When you’re in love, it isn’t unusual for you to want to tell the entire world. While some may want to scream it from the rooftops, most take the modern approach by using social media as a tool to express their love. I think it's pretty safe to say that we've all been guilty of this. First, you can’t stop yourself from tagging your significant other in sugary sweet statuses. Then, you make a habit out of regularly sharing those cutesy love quotes on Facebook — You know, the same ones that annoyed you when you were single.

7 Reasons To Drink Wine Instead Of Going To The Gym Tonight

An earth-shattering study has proved that people like me, the ones who would rather not go to the gym, can actually make up for it by drinking a glass of wine instead. According to researchers at the University of Alberta, "The magic ingredient in red wine is resveratrol which is also found in nuts and grapes. This complex boosts the function of the heart, muscles and bones as much as a trip to the gym does." What the wha — ? Is this some sort of joke, or did life get way more awesome all of sudden? Sounds like it's the latter.
