Earlier this year, our friends at The Stir reported a study that found couples were divorcing less because of infidelity and more because they were falling out of love. Now, there's another study that says the same thing.
When you think of Tupac Shakur (or 2Pac Shakur for that matter), you're probably thinking "California Love," "Dear Mama," or another rap song. I mean, he is a rapper after all. But today marks 15 years since the rapper was gunned down in Las Vegas, and all I've got in my head is a song released a decade before he was even born. It's that mushy '60s song "Today I Met the Boy I'm Gonna Marry." Because it was.
There's good news and there's bad news. The good news is that couples are divorcing less these days due to infidelity. Yay! The bad news is that they're divorcing more because they've fallen out of love. Boo.

And she is planning on taking her husband's last name making her ... Lauren Bush Lauren. How far would you go for tradition?

After three months of being a tattooed mom, I have felt those judging eyes as I walk away. In all likelihood, any opinion they formed about me has morphed into something else. Which just makes me want to tattoo the following down my arm: I’m a breastfeeding, baby-wearing, co-sleeping, cloth diapering mom. I’m married. I own a home and a late model car. I have never received a speeding ticket, let alone been convicted of a crime. Too long?
My husband and I seem to parent our children differently based on their genders, a tendency I never expected, being the enlightened and empowered woman I am. (“Roar” and all that.) Once we had both a boy and a girl, though, this tendency became obvious.

It seems clear that we are in a time where gender roles and expectations are rapidly being redefined and altered. Although these new definitions are, no doubt, giving both genders some more freedom, are they simultaneously making a handful of people a bit more uncomfortable as well? Madame Noire took to the streets to try and discover just this. They interviewed several New Yorkers to see how they'd feel if a husband, instead, decided to take a woman's last name. You won't believe some of their responses.
Have you ever given an awesome Father's Day present? Because we could use some gift ideas.
Growing up, I thought I was "too cool" for some of the traditions in my hometown. But my husband, also from my hometown, loves every little bit of it. My job in our marriage was to keep things hip but then we had sons and they became involved in the Memorial Day parade. It found deep meaning for me and the family tradition brought all of us closer than scrapbooks or costume parties ever could.
When I do premarital counseling one of the issues that is addressed is how the couple feels about their soon to be in-laws. For the most part, the couple is usually very supportive of their mother-in-law and father-in-law. When there is a problem it is usually between the new wife and the mother-in-law. There are many theories as to why this happens. Sometimes mom cannot give up her son, or the new wife wants total control over her husband and she finds the mother intrusive. No matter what the problem is the solution is pretty similar.
He's come home from the doctor with a prescription for Viagra! What does it mean? Is he going outside our relationship for sex? Doesn't he want me any more? These are the questions that go through most women's heads when the little blue pill shows up. T
