If you're like most of us, you're having a hard time making sense of the relationship between John Edwards and Rielle Hunter. And, more importantly, you're not sure if you want to understand it. If the latest buzz can be believed, Rielle has finally given up on her love...if there was even anything left to give up on.
Unfaithful politicians and celebrities have been blowing up the news lately, thanks to the wandering eyes of a certain former action star—ahem, Schwarzenegger! But high status men and women aren't the only ones who cheat, and no matter where you are in the world, acts of infidelity are hard to ignore.
"We love Arnold!" said Jenna and Barbara Bush at the 2008 Republican National Convention. "Thanks to him, if one of us ever decides to marry a Democrat, nobody can complain." Of course, since then, Jenna Bush has gotten married...to a Republican. (And as you've probably heard, Arnold & Maria recently called it quits.) As much as the Bush twins may have wanted to rebel against their family, it's very rare for someone to date someone of opposing political beliefs.
What would you do if you found out that your partner were a conspiracy theorist?
Behind every great man is a great woman and Sandra Torres is tired of standing behind her husband, Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom. So much so that she wants to be the one who succeeds her husband in office when his term ends this coming fall
This week, in order to distract us from high gas prices and impending revolution in the Middle East and Wisconsin, we learned a lot about Facebook and your marriage from The Social Media Couple. Also, how does Newt Gingrich explain his marriage and infidelity. In fact, how does anyone explain infidelity? Good luck with that one, Newt. Finally, what do you think about pre-marital counseling? Let us know by taking our survey.
America's love affair with celebrities has been apparent in our presidential choices—exemplified by Ronald Reagan—but don't look for George Clooney to join that political marquee anytime soon. Despite his ramped-up activism efforts, the charismatic cutie denies any plans for ever hitting the campaign trail. Why? Well, for one, his colorful past. "I didn't live my life the right way for politics, you know," Clooney stated in a recent interview with Newsweek (via E!Online). "I f**ked too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that's the truth."
By Kaitlyn Monteiro With this year’s 2010 midterm elections coming to a close today, we aren’t seeing the celebrity star power that we witnessed in 2008. Make no mistake; it’s not the Presedential election but it’s still an important time to vote. According to experts, Hollywood is staying home this election period. Why the lack of star power now? Where’s Brad and Angelina? Demi and Ashton?
Poll: Does Christine O'Donnell's One-Night Stand Matter?: No. Her one-night stand has nothing to do with her political race. Yes. Her one-night stand is relevant.
I would and have dated someone of opposite politics and in fact, dear reader, I married him. (10 points to the person who names that literary reference.) I am not going to lie and say that we never talk about politics and things are hunky dory. Because, we literally cannot watch a political debate together without glaring at each other from opposite ends of the couch and then someone sneaking out to eat all the Cheetos, just to make the other person upset. Those were my Cheetos! While, politics are important to both of us, but even more important is the fact that we agree that Skittles are a superior candy and that the movie theater smells like a wet gym sock. These are the pillars of a relationship. Not all that values and morals crap.
Recently, YourTango asked readers: Would you date across the political aisle? The results were astonishing, as 77 percent of respondents said that they'd be open to dating their political opposite. Curious to learn more, we decided to open up the discussion further, taking to the radio airwaves and starting a dialogue with various radio show listeners.
He was gung-ho for Obama. You wrote in your vote for Kucinich. You roll your eyes every time Sarah Palin opens her mouth. He hangs onto her every word. When it comes to politics, the two of you are at each other's throats. Is your relationship doomed? Should you give up now? Or is it possible that you just might find some common ground despite your differences, and end up going the distance?
Sex and politics: Google searches for pornography spike after political victories. A husband and wife psychologist team decided to get to the bottom of whether or not political victories cause an upswing in pornography usage. It turns out, YES, there is in fact more titillating viewing going on the night of an election, but only if you happened to vote for the winning party.
I recognize that parenthood is a journey filled with responsibility and challenges far greater than political quibbling. I also realize, that in the end, the political choices of our child are not up to us, but up to that squirming little fetus, who is currently making me puke and want to eat jars and jars of caramel ice cream topping. And yet, I am worried about what we will teach our child about conflict and resolution though our political wranglings. Will our child grow up to be polarized? Afraid of confrontation? Apathetic? Or will our child learn to build consensus and disagree with respect and love?
Last week we told you that Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston's second engagement might be on the rocks because Levi allegedly knocked up an ex-girlfriend, and now E! has confirmed that the camouflage-adorned wedding of Bristol's girlish dreams is off. Again. But Lanesia Garcia's pregnancy is reportedly not the reason.
