Making your marriage the best part of your life
Being single affords you the chance to get to know all sorts of people. We encourage all singles to date as many different types of people as pique your interest and curiosity. These are the men we’d all like to date at least once in our single lifetimes. Are you with us?
Robert's ex, via National Enquirer, reports that sex with this hottie is right out electrifying. As if women needed another reason to worship the always brooding Robert Pattinson. And if Robert Pattinson's mother is reading this, you might want to refrain from continuing on.
As her sister edged toward her 40th year, Deidre Fishel noticed a panic slowly building and taking hold of her. She feared the dip in libido that comes along with age. Fishel wanted to see if there was real reason to fear, or if there were older women out there bucking the myth, that they were sexless, cranky old things.
After the television cameras faded to black and the limelight went dim, Cutie and his lover quietly crept off to the alter to tie the knot and make their union official. On Tuesday, the displaced priest (who because he has not been formally removed by the Vatican is still technically a Catholic priest) married his long-time girlfriend of two years, Ruhama Canellis, reports the Associated Press.
We've all heard the rumors—celebrities hooking up with their partners on Dancing With The Stars. Occasionally it's true. Actress Shannon Elizabeth and dance partner Derek Hough started dating when she appeared on season six and are still together. Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff made for heavy-duty tabloid fodder for nearly two years, until she learned there were other partners on his dance card.
In this excerpt, Boteach tells one couple how using Tantra can help them live in a heightened state. By focusing on the moment without expectation of the end result, sexual passion can be coaxed alive (and sustained!) in a couple. Not your average rabbinical advice, but we'll take Boteach's word for it. He and his wife, Debbie, do have nine children, after all.
We've written a lot about how marriage is a financial arrangement, that romance eventually fizzle, and how having kids can make your once-bottomless libido as dry as an unused diaper. So it would seem to be common knowledge that passion, while important in the beginning of a relationship, isn't what makes a marriage work. But according to a new study from researchers at the University of Iowa, since the 1930s traits like dependability and stability have become fallen in importance, while lust and love have risen. Have Hollywood myths and the fetishization of romance messed up our ideas about what we should look for in a mate?
In the last few years social scientists and therapists who practice emotionally focused therapy (or EFT) have made a breakthrough. Now, at the beginning of the 21st century, we have a map to this passion, this fever that has baffled poets and lovers all through human history. When you have a blueprint for love you can build it. In EFT studies seven out of ten couples repair their relationship. Love doesn't have to be a mystery anymore.
Love may not cost a thing but dating, unfortunately, does. But being strapped for cash doesn't need to put a damper on fun... or romance. Cheap dates can be more memorable than an over-the-top evening which like New Year's Eve, may be better in fantasy than in reality. Even if money is no object, paring down can force you to get creative with your dates, creating closeness that a concert or movie can't provide.
