When we first saw the theatrical trailer for producer Chris Meledandri's newest film Despicable Me, we'll admit, we rolled our eyes as these odd overall-wearing, yellow pellets stuttered over the film's title, then emitted sounds reminiscent of a clown doll and Spongebob Squarepants. Still, our curiosity got the best of us, and that was a good thing, indeed. And we never would've guessed that we might learn something while watching the film either. As we watched the adorable Agnes, voiced by Elsie Fisher, warm Gru's evil heart and get her way with him, it occurred to us that at times, it pays to be childlike, especially in a relationship. (Note, we didn't say childish.) Read on to see what we mean.
Each year, it is believed that thousands of couples across the country experience intense, irreversible heartbreak. The culprits? Their children. In the 1970s, psychologists clinically identified and popularized the term "empty nest syndrome" to refer to the depression, anxiety and loneliness that can overcome parents when their children leave home to begin their adult lives.

Entire days are devoted to perpetuating these kinds of cliches, yet they are humorous for us because we're amused that women assume this false notion is all we want. We're quite complicated creatures, and although probably not as baffling as any space alien from a Candace Bushnell column, men have secret wish lists of emotional needs that you may or may not be meeting.
It was 11:45 p.m. on a Wednesday night. My wife and I were exhausted and cozied up in bed together. We both had one thing on our minds. Unfortunately, it wasn't the same thing. I was craving sex and she was craving the season three finale of "Friday Night Lights." We were at a standstill, experiencing what some might call a "21st century marital pickle." It seems Netflix and sites like Hulu just might be the modern couple's greatest obstacles to a steady sex life. The continuous supply of great TV is so accessible and so compelling, many a good couple become hooked like crackheads and forget about making their own entertainment. Through burning eyes and next day regret, couples machete through a season of "Lost" or "The Wire," ignoring or forgetting to fuel their loins. But on this night, something in me snapped and I drew a line in the sand … with my penis. "Babe," I said, "we're in a losing battle against awesome TV. It will never end.
