I Was In An Open, Long-Distance Relationship

Several years ago, I was in a relationship that helped me grow and change so much as a person. Until then, I didn't realize the possibilities that the world held. My mate's name was Alfred and he was a beautiful and incredible man. Things were almost perfect between us and for a long time I was happy. He lived in Hawaii and I in Tennessee but we stayed close by discussing details about outside partners and sexual situations. I had never felt so desirable and accepted in my whole life.

Teen Pregnancy: Tango Investigates

According to today's feature, The Pros and Cons of Marrying Young, pregnancy isn't a good reason to get hitched. "To marry simply because of a child seems to be a recipe for disaster. In fact, according to a 2007 study, only 17 percent of pregnant teenagers wed." Even so, young Hollywood starlets have been popping out offspring at an alarming rate, leading us to wonder, are babies the new boyfriends? Perhaps not, but boyfriends certainly lead to babies; in July, 2007 we reported that a Chinese doctor blamed the rising number of Shanghai teen pregnancies on youngsters meeting boys through the internet.

A Bridal Shop For Pregnant Women

A West London entrepreneur saw a market gap and decided to exploit it. She had a devil of a time finding a wedding gown while she was pregnant. She decided to start a shop specializing in maternity matrimony garb. You would think that when having a child out-of-wedlock was more of a taboo, someone would have started this shop, guess not. A woman in West London ran into a problem while shopping for a dress while she was knocked up; while other people saw a problem, Tracey Wilkinson saw an opportunity. Presumably after her wedding (and possibly baby) Wilkinson started The Expectant Bride.

I Knocked Myself Up: Pregnancy On My Own

What’s it really like to have a baby all by your lonesome? Not so lonesome after all, says Louise Sloan. "I was ready for kids at age 28—and well aware that women's fertility starts to plummet at 35. When I saw my doctor that fateful year, she asked me if I wanted children. "Yes," I replied. "Definitely." With a stern look, she snapped, "Well, you're not getting any younger!" Thanks for the news flash, I thought. What kind of idiot does she think I am? I was a romantic, procrastinating idiot, to be exact. Despite my clear intellectual understanding of the issues involved, it took me until age 38 before I seriously started thinking about single motherhood, and even then, I had to be dragged into it kicking and screaming by my biological clock, which was starting to sound more like a car alarm."

For Some Couples, One Kid Is Enough

Having a child irrevocably alters the balance of a partnership. The responsibility, time commitment and difficulty having baby is tough, no matter how strong your union; romance and sex after kids can be hard to accomplish. Although many couples decide the disruption is worth it, finding a new equilibrium can be challenging. Here, one mother comments on why she won't do it again. In her own words, "admitting that bringing a child into a relationship might ruin said relationship verges on the unpatriotic. Like most of us, I expect romance to survive marriage and committed cohabitation. I’m more dubious that it can survive raising a child."
