What It's Like To Marry An Atheist When You Believe In God

When I was a kid, my mother and I joined a very large “non-denominational” Christian Church, one of the earliest versions of the Mega Churches that exist today. It was a very happy place. I was in the children’s choir, the community was lovely, and we sang from a song book with drawings of long-haired hippies.

Why Women Won't Date You If You're Not Into Premarital Nookie

Although trying to find someone who doesn't practice pre-marital sex isn't easy these days, they still exist. Whether they were raised to keep it in their pants for religious reasons, or gave it a whirl and are now remaining chaste until marriage for other reasons, not everyone is down for a sexually active relationship before tying the knot. Yes, some people just want to wait.

Why Your Bacteria Might Be The Reason You're Still Single

There are so many reasons as to why people break up. Sometimes someone cheats, or there's a moment of realization that you don't see the world the same way, or maybe in the saddest of terms, love just dies. While those tend to be the most common reasons for why people split, another reason, one that you may not have heard of, is that your microbes just weren't a match. That's right; your bacteria may have had their eye on someone else.

9 Times Being The Child Of A Gynecologist Got Really Awkward

When one of your parents is a gynecologist, things can be a little … interesting. Now imagine having both of your parents looking at vaginas all day long. Yeah. That feeling you’re experiencing? That weird mix of morbid fascination and wanting to stick your head in a hole and never come out? That was my childhood! Don't get me wrong; it was also pretty cool. Having a mother who can answer literally ANY question you can think of is kind of fun as you get older. (Though there was the time that my mother tried to talk to me about menstrual cycles when I was 12, and I threatened to barrel roll out of the car into the street, but that's probably more my hang-up than hers.) And I was the only kid in the fourth grade who had ever seen sperm under a microscope (for the record, one of the nurses in my mom's office was responsible for that, not dear mama herself).

11 Nosey Observations My Nephews Have Made About My Love Life

Although I do not want kids of my own, I can admit that my nephews are awesome. The stuff that comes out of their mouths never ceases to amaze me and I'm pretty sure, despite being only four and five years old, they have things far more figured out than I usually do. They see life with these new and open eyes, and because of that, they often say things that really put it all into perspective, even if sometimes it seems a bit confusing at first.

3 Life-Changing Promises Every Dad Should Make To His Kid

I accept that I’m not always going to be able to be there for them in the old-fashioned Earthly sense. Sadly, there are limits to this particular pageant we’re all playing at. But then I realize that my physical being doesn’t really matter that much because there are ways that I'll remain after I've passed on; there are little promises I can make to my kids now that might allow me to love them forever.

7 Sexy Ways To Stay Warm With Your Boyfriend This Winter

Lately, the weather's been a bit…deceptive. It's mid-December and I don't have to trudge through snow, find balance upon icy sidewalks, or shield my face from the biting cold. Sometimes, I even find myself walking down the street with my jacket unzipped like an amazing bada** mocking the absence of cold weather. Despite the 40- and 50-degree weather we've experienced thus far, be warned: winter is coming. Mother Nature will catch us off-guard and pummel us with snow, sleet, and ice and she will laugh the whole time she’s doing it. It's going to get frigid and you're going to have to find someway to stay warm.

Archie Comics are sexy now for some reason, as seen here in this snap of Archie, Betty and Veronica.

5 Perfectly Innocent Things That All Of A Sudden Are Sexy Now

You know Archie? The old fashioned comic about what kids were like back in the '60s, and it seems like it was probably kind of nerdy even for back then? Yeah, that Archie. You've probably never read it, but you know what it is. Well, next year, Archie is getting a sexy reboot, as a modern teen with modern friends dealing with modern things like iPods and internets and North Korean terrorists and Osama bin Laden's ghost haunting ALL OF AMERICA! (Almost none of that is confirmed, it's just what I'm assuming the new series will be about.
