A Vacation From My Wedding Ring

What's the significance of your wedding ring? And what does it mean if you take it off? One woman found that taking off her wedding band allowed her a freedom she didn't feel in her troubled marriage. "I'm back from a girlfriend getaway in paradise. Traveling with a best friend off the beaten path awakened joy in me and soothed my soul, but it also left me wondering: Why can't I capture that sense of fun and wonder in everyday life? Why do I feel so stuck here in Boston, yet I was free as a bird in Mexico? One idea: I took off my wedding ring while traveling. I think my naked ring finger gave rise to more open responses and deeper interactions than I would have otherwise experienced."

World's Smallest Hotel

At a mere 173 square feet, the "Eh'haeusl" or "marriage house" has quite a large reputation. The Bavarian hotel, built in 1728, is a fixture in South Germany's history, according to Reuters. What does 173 square feet get you? Three stories, actually: The first floor is the entryway, the second floor the bathroom, and the third, the bedroom. The structure was built by placing a front, back, and roof between the tiny space between two existing buildings. Voila: a cozy home for two. Actually, the space served many a newlywed, as it's name "marriage house," implies: According to 18th-century law, couples who intended to marry needed to own property to do so. The tiny house was quickly constructed and passed from couple to couple to allow lovebirds a way to the altar.

Planning Your First Big Trip: 6 Travel Tips For Couples

Your first time traveling as a couple can be somewhat of a litmus test for your relationship. Women and men tend to travel differently, for instance: while he waxes poetic about the deeper meaning of travel, he's thinking of hotel sex. Lots of it. When I took my first trip with Lorri, we settled on Eastern Europe: Romania to Hungary to Austria and finally the Czech Republic. We planned to fly in and out and do the rest by rail or bus or whatever—we'd figure it out when we got there. Along the way I came to see how differently I—as a man—traveled compared to Lorri, when it comes to planning, packing, eating, and keeping calm.

Vacation Sex... At Home

Most couples agree that sex on vacation beats their time between the sheets at home. But, as Newsweek reports this week, partners generally define "better" in different ways. For men, it's about quantity. For women, it's about quality. This seems logical. Vacation, provided couples aren't sharing hotel rooms with kids, offers a happy medium: there's more sex and it's more satisfying.
