Poll: When Do You Introduce Your New Boyfriend To The Family?: I avoid it as long as possible. Right away. If my family doesn't like him, then it's not even worth continuing the relationship. I wait a few months to see how long-term the relationship is going to be. I don't really plan it out. It usually just happens randomly.
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.

We've seen math models used in economics—which of course involve people and their actions involving consumption—but how is one to turn the whimsies of husband X and the moods of wife Y into a mathematical formula on their marriage's success? According to Professor James Murray, a math expert at Oxford University, it all boils down to a couple's argument style. After analyzing 700 couples and taping them bicker for 15 minutes about an important issue, he thinks he can pinpoint who's going to ultimately pay a divorce lawyer in the near future.
Variety reports that the two stars and their production companies have purchased the rights to Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry, which is a mock auction catalogue offering the mementos from a couple's failed love affair.
