By Erika Hymowitz Vujnovich Chelsea Clinton/Mark Mezvinsky, Naomi Watts/Liev Schreiber, Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes and even Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie are among the numerous celebrity couples attempting to make an interfaith relationship work. While it’s nice to believe the old saying “love conquers all,” there are often many challenges an interfaith couple faces. Speaking from experience, I entered into an interfaith marriage five years ago.
By Jessica Downey of Chicago Now’s All the Single Ladies Christina Aguilera recently divorced Jordan Bratman, and she is about to turn 30 in December. I am at the opposite end of things – I just turned 30, and I have never been married (read that as I am totally and completely single).
By Royal Young of Interview Magazine Charlie Sheen’s recent escort escapades are good for a raunchy laugh, but they are part of a trend in bad celebrity behavior that has poisoned my own ideas about passion.

People make a snap decision when they meet someone if that person is going to be a friend or potential date.

I have met men who in theory are exactly what I want, but they failed to impress, and I lost the urge to pursue dating them.
By Kelly Seal Considering dating someone with kids? Celebrities without children are daring to date single parents these days, at least according to the tabloids. Rocker Matt Bellamy recently started dating single mom Kate Hudson. Brad Pitt became an adoptive father to Angelina Jolie’s oldest son shortly after their relationship took off.

By KB in NYC We all know that dating is a minefield, right? But here’s the thing; getting older doesn’t help. A lot of 40-year-old men only want to date 25-year-olds. And here’s why: a woman in her 30′s or 40′s knows what she wants. She’s been around the block a few times, and she’s less willing to compromise. She’s less easily impressed and she is, in a word, more discerning.
