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 was a 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.

You know that passion you have at the beginning of a relationship? When every moment is about getting closer to each other and nothing is more important than seeing that person naked? How nothing else matters, not food or shelter or work? Yeah, that intensity is kind of hard to maintain.
Depression is a very common emotion. We all become depressed from time to time. Luckily, it does not last long for most of us, however, couples who deal with chronic depression are not so fortunate. Chronic depression returns consistently and, while it is rarely a cause for divorce, it is the cause of other symptoms couples complain about. Depression is often the cause for withdrawal, seeking an affair, physical abuse, emotional abuse and verbal abuse. Couples react to the symptoms of depression rather than confronting the real problem: depression.
After watching my parents in their marriage, and learning what works and what doesn't on my own, here are 10 things men can do to better their marriages right away.
Over time I started to trust my parental instincts in a way I hadn’t before. And as she grew, I marveled at the toddler she turned into: fiery and independent, sure of herself. She knew more of life than her brothers did at that age: she understood she wouldn’t always come first and things weren't always fair and she dealt. I realized my instinctual parenting had unintentionally taught her something: resilience.
"One of the things that I've noticed is that older women are more prone to engage in this type of behavior simply because they have already figured out that the dream of meeting the handsome prince is only a fairy tale. They've been hurt, used and mentally/physically abused so they want to feel like they are in control. They are okay with simply getting their freak on and calling it a day." Do you agree? Are women resorting to casual sex, because they're jaded about love? Join the conversation.
It's no secret that a walk down the aisle most often brings about a weight gain of about six to nine pounds. But what's been a secret or a misinformed public opinion is that your weight gain is a key factor in determining marriage satisfaction. Actually, marital satisfaction is better determined by a wife's weight gain relative to her husband's. University of Tennessee psychologist Andrea Maltzer's team tracked 165 couples over a four-year timespan. The couples completed questionnaires every six months to determine their level of satisfaction. Findings? Husbands that were satisfied at the time of marriage remained so over time, to the extent that their wives maintained lower BMIs than their own, researchers reported.
The medical community has long debated the extent to which the power of touch, even the power of presence, can help someone recover. They've noted that in Gabrielle Giffords' case, the consistent support of her love ones has ostensibly contributed to her consistent progression toward recovery. It's difficult to measure how much love, interaction, and encouragement is needed to summon someone from the brink of death. There isn't a standard dosage of emotional support required for countering physical injuries and health problems. People can't even handle medication the same way, let alone subjective experiences like love and familiarity. At the same time, countless studies have shown that love and intimacy can improve your health. Here's how.
