Using A Hitman On Your Spouse To Be Extra Illegal

A very strange case in California has highlighted the need for revisions to the law. It's currently not possible to make any money from a divorce if you've attempted or succeeded in murdering your spouse, but you can still get divided communal assets if you hire or attempt to hire someone to do the deed.

Seinfeld's 20 Best Relationship Moments

That was a prett-y, prett-y quick 20 years. All the way back in 1990, a young comedian in a blazer, blue jeans and sneakers teamed up with a crotchety old cuss and produced nine seasons of pop culture gold. Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David spun everyday that-happened-to-me-isms into one of the most beloved sitcoms of all time. They let us know that the jerk-store wasn't a real comeback, presented us with etiquette regarding a double-dipped chip and taught us that we didn't have to celebrate Christmas, Chanukah or Kwanza, for Festivus was for the rest of us.

Nobody Wants To Date A Smoker

It looks like smoking may be one of the biggest deal breakers out there. In fact, in a relatively small sample, it looks like even smokers would prefer not to date smokers. On top of that, most people can't quit smoking without some kind of aid. Not a great day to be a smoker.
