With Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding bonanza mere weeks away, we can't help but feel a bit envious—not of Kate Middleton or what is sure to be her amazing gown—but of the glitz and glam that a royal wedding signifies. (Of course, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama are better role models than your average European princess, but do they ever get to wear tiaras or swan across a ballroom floor with John Travolta?
In honor of Women's History Month, we salute 15 women who changed the way we live and love. Who would you add to the list?
Every actress dreams of bagging that gorgeous golden Oscar statuette, but if the Best Actress Curse is to be believed, scoring an Academy Award means tanking a relationship (think Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet and Reese Witherspoon, whose relationships fell apart within a year of their Best Actress wins). If the curse is real, can we then predict who will win the 2011 Best Actress by looking at whose love life is least stable? We hope not!
With the Sundance Film Festival wrapping recently, we've had to move to greener pastures (also known as Awards Show Season) to get our fix of celebrity sightings and outstanding cinema. Certain films from the festival are lingering in our minds as some of the most beautiful love stories we've encountered in years, and lucky for you, all of these films have been purchased by larger film studios and will be released in theaters in 2011. So grab your love and suggest a movie date when these films hit the silver screen.
It's officially the glitziest, glammiest, starriest time of the year—Awards Show Season. As A-listers make the rounds to accept Golden Globes and Oscars galore, we get to see them dressed to the nines in Versace, Alexander Wang, Valentino, etc. But that's just the beginning. Whether celebs walk the red carpet arm-in-arm with their rumored loves/co-stars, live-in partners or husband/wife, Hollywood's finest always offer up a different kind of eye candy for the keen observer: intriguing body language. Here, body language expert Dr.
Breakups are hard. There's no question about that. And we'd hazard a guess that they're harder when both you and your former inamorata are famous. There's no getting away from memories of him or her when you're both splashed on the cover of In Touch, or when his album hits number one from a song calling you a cheater, or when she rebounds in St. Tropez with the costar she left you for. As Neil Sedaka once sang, breakin' up is hard to do, no matter who you are. But there is such a thing as over-mourning, and these ten celebs are guilty of that.

As YourTango partners up with Dear John to bring you even more content about love, we thought it worth showering the film's two stars—Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried as, respectively, an enlisted soldier and a college student in love—with some much-deserved adulation. We've admired Amanda since her turn as Karen in 2004's Mean Girls. She's since shone on the small screen as the oldest child of the polygamous Henrickson family in HBO's Big Love, and she fought (and kissed) a zombified Megan Fox in Jennifer's Body. In addition to her acting resume, Seyfried's always struck us as one of Hollywood's more intelligent and grounded starlets.
Complex magazine's recent list of hot women in Hollywood who are actually funny (their phrasing, not ours) inspired us to highlight the funny blokes out there who are actually good-looking. While most of us lady folk are wise to the fact that laughs last longer than looks, we still appreciate a side of smoking (hot) with our joking. Hey, if supermodels were hilarious, they'd be on this list. As is, here are men who make us sweat with their perfect combo of humor and handsomeness.
Were there an 11th commandment, we think "thou shalt laugh" might not be a bad addition. In order to reflect on the sacredness of love, marriage, sex and relationships, we turned to those who solemnly take the good, the bad and the ugly sides of love and make us see them in a whole new light: comedians. Click ahead to read the 10 relationship commandments, as spoken by those who make us chuckle.

It's easy to write Tila Tequila off as nothing more than a shameless attention whore. She'll admit it. She did, afterall, become a household name due to her alleged bisexuality on MTV's "A Shot With Tila Tequila." She was also Playboy's first Asian cyber girl of the month and managed to accumulate over a million MySpace friends thanks to being synonomous with sex-drenched pictures and raunchy music with singles like "Stripper Friends." Bikinis and all, Tila Tequila was careful never to peddle herself as a brainy, self-marketing genius—but she's easily the most clever bimbo this side of Paris Hilton. Learn more about her inner world with a few choice excerpts from her book, Hooking Up With Tila Tequila.
