A study conducted by the Tufts Medical Center's Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies states that your risk for heart attack is tripled after sex. While you may be justifiably concerned about your sexual health, don't scream, "Jumpin' Jesus on a pogo stick" and go for an emergency libido-ectomy just yet. Keep in mind that your chances are still really small that it'll happen.
A woman in Brooksville, Florida unfriended her live-in boyfriend whilst in a pique about something or other. And that very umbrage came back many-fold as the live-in boyfriend confronted his lady about the unfriending and her status change to single (and, implicitly, ready to mingle). Eventually, the fracas came to such a boil that John Law was called to the feuding couple's mutual residence.
A couple in California decided that a little lung infection wasn't going to ruin their weekend wedding plans.

Men in the Land of the Rising Sun are losing their libidos. The story goes that 36 percent of boys ages 16 to 19 in Japan have "little to no interest" in sex. Over 80 percent of 20-year-old Japanese dudes are currently not dating anyone. And half of the two decaders have NEVER had a girlfriend (note: some writers were into their 20s before they had their first girlfriends, so let's not judge). Dig this: the young ladies are even more uninterested in sex.
Within some circles of belief, marrying a handful of ladies is commonplace. We're talking about circles containing people with mildly different sensibilities than those of your run-of-the-mill Judeo-Christian American.

You ever see product/marketing ideas that are so bad they have to be PR stunts? It looks like America's favorite blue jeans manufacturer is getting in on the act. Levi's has a complement for their ex-boyfriend jeans... they've introduced the ex-girlfriend jeans for guys. I don't know what to think.

Since overthrowing the Shah in 1979, the leaders of Iran have tried to oppose Western influence. This time around, they've decided that Valentine's Day is not appropriate for the Persian people.

Not everyone wants to go into debt for their wedding. And those same people don't want to necessarily get married in Vegas. That's when compromise comes in.
