If politics are important to you, discussing your beliefs early on in a relationship is important. Differing views shouldn't kill a bourgeoning relationship (Democrats and Republicans can get along in the bedroom and in life), but is there a stigma against those who opt out entirely? Love Buzz polled our friends and contributors to find out.

In an interview on Rove, an Australian television show, Pink said –with little hesitation– that she would turn gay for Natalie Portman. Why Natalie? "She’s so smart. I could talk to her," said Pink, who's confession was a response a hypothetical question posed by the show's host. In light of Pink's recent chart-topper, "So What", her answer begs the question.
Brace yourselves, Americans. It looks like Katie Price and Peter Andre are looking to bring their brand of entertainment across the ocean to the lower 48. In case you don't know, Katie is sometimes called Jordan and 2 are entertainers back in the UK. They do some writing, singing, reality TV stuff, all of it really top-notch. We cannot wait.
A study out of the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, suggests a woman's beauty is a gift from both of her good-looking parents, but a man's facial attractiveness is harder to place. Attractive fathers do not necessarily have attractive sons -- and you can't look to a man's mother to find out if he'll still be eye candy in old age, either.

A middle of the road lubricant is going Web 2.0, Arnold Schwarzenegger is against Proposition 8, adultery can get you jail in South Korea, men are more suspicious of adultery, new film 'Cliente' is bugging French men, 'Zach and Miri' not welcome in many Utah theaters, 9/9/09 wedding so be fun, Vegas weddings down, Virginia Slims go pink to much disgust, and a little drinking while pregnant can benefit baby boys.
Frank was the anti-striver. When we first started dating, I was tired of men who detailed how they'd earn their first million, become partner or make their fellow MBA buddies jealous. Frank was my rebellion, the stake I planted to showcase my expansive egalitarianism; after all, I had dated a black man, a much older man, and (oh yes, oops), a married one. The expectations of my white, upward-striving, narrow-minded suburban upbringing were not for me. Take that, I seemed to be saying (to whom I don't know), I'll date and marry whom I please. This is all true. But so is this: I fell in love. Fell in love, as it happens, upon first seeing him in a high school play, though we wouldn't meet for two years, or seriously date for ten. But what matters, finally, in the very long run is this: I married him because I love him and I still do. Before we married, I didn't give a lot of thought to which color collars we were each wearing. We were both earning money, expenses were low, the savings account high. Frank's no-college status was not a deal breaker; his almost-final divorce and my over-controlling nature were.

Today Gawker alerted us to the story of Carol Anne Burger, a Huffington Post blogger who stabbed her ex-lover in the neck with a screwdriver 222 times and then shot herself before police could question her. Burger, 57 and her ex, Jessica Kalish, 56, had broken up but for financial reasons were still living together in the condo they'd purchased in 2000. While they worked with a lawyer to sell the house and divide their assets (they were married in 2005), they spent time on opposite sides of the apartment.
What should Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey go as for Halloween? It's a big question. Any couples first Halloween costume is important for determining how people see them. Mariah told Rachael Ray that she doesn't have any good ideas. Was she playing possum so no one can take her good ideas? If not they can always go as Brangelina. Oh, that just sucks.
