A female football fan and her sports indifferent boyfriend find common ground in their relationship.
Like most women on the planet, I dreamed that I would one day find the perfect man. Someone who would not mind me occasionally bringing home a stray dog or cat. A man who could watch Monty Python's Holy Grail repeatedly and would still have a beverage shoot out his nose when the Frenchman says, "I fart in your general direction." And, most importantly, I longed for a man who could spend many a Sunday afternoon lying on the couch watching football with me. Honestly, I thought that the last requirement on my list would be the easiest to fulfill. Well, as luck would have it, I did find my dream guy. I found him in his indigenous environment: the art museum. He was displaying his original artwork, oil paintings of various people and things. I thought he was brilliant and talented. He swept me off my feet from the moment I met him. He was kind, funny, intelligent—almost everything I wanted in a man. But, sadly, he didn't care so much for watching large men in spandex beat the crap out of each other for possession of a ball. I was devastated. How could someone so perfect be so horribly flawed? He couldn't relate to such barbaric activity of testosterone and sweat.

You may now kiss the bride (and give her some prozac, please).
A new psychological trend has made it's way into the forefront–postnuptial depression. Postnuptial depression occurs after the wedding, when couples seek counseling to overcome the sadness of settling into married life. While some of this sadness may be chemical, psychologists urge couples in therapy to be each other's support systems to ward off postnuptial depression.
