Turns out, it's a three YEAR process.Every year, hundreds of thousands of women take their new husband's names. Not to say the process has become seamless, but it’s less time consuming or involved than filing your taxes. But what if a guy wants to take his wife's name? Common sense says it should be just as easy—but guess again. According to WTLX.com, Michael Buday and Diana Bijon decided to just that, and it took a mere three years to make it official. With the divorce rate as is, it's amazing the couple was still married by the time the paperwork came through...
The Star Tribune reported on a new web site that allows users to see just about everything they might want to know about a neighborhood’s inhabitants—including marital status.

Ronaldo (not to be confused with Ronaldinho or Cristiano Ronaldo) got caught in an Eddie Murphy-esque predicament involving 3 crossdressing prostitutes a week or so back. You may know the Brazilian soccer star from his fantastic work as AC Milan's striker before he hurt himself). At any rate, one of the prostitutes alleges that there was drug-use and sex involved. Ronaldo claims that no such sex or drug use happened and he turned the hookers in to the fuzz when they threatened him with blackmail (or possibly Brazilian-male).
According to People magazine, Scarlett Johansson is wearing Ryan Reynolds ring. What this means? Typically, it translates into a wedding down the road. Sometimes, it translates into a bunch of hoopla and no action. We're guessing toward the former and guessing that Woody Allen just punched a hole in a wall somewhere.
For example, do maintain profiles on various sites for maximum exposure. Don't, on the other hand, take it personally if you meet someone for a "running date," and he sprints away from you before you have the chance to do so yourself (this actually happened to a friend).
