A couple in Zephyrhills, FL was able to overcome some workplace animosity to create an office romance. Along the way she was fired, they met online, broke up, she was rehired and, oh, theeeeeeen they got married. Confused? Check it out.
A woman in Santa Rosa (yes, of course it's Florida) went bananacakes when her husband was interested in watching a Jennifer Lopez film. Because he insisted on watching a J. Lo film, she felt obligated to (allegedly) set fire to his go-kart, boat and some of his personal effects. And it wasn't a matter of his not having decent taste that caused the Floridian to go Stephen King's Firestarter on his ass. Nope! This firebug from the Sunshine State was just jealous at the possibility that her husband might prefer J. Lo's bootiliciousness. And then the hurt feelings really started.
A woman allegedly faked Leukemia in order to get her dream wedding in New York and honeymoon in Aruba. The woman's husband (now outgoing husband) says his old old-lady even had him convinced that she had the Big C. Because they were featured in a newspaper article and a public outpouring, as a result of that newspaper article, financed their dream wedding plus Caribbean honeymoon.
A politician in Venezuela had a brilliant plan to get out the vote: breasts. Naturally, sex sells and when you're talking about gorgeous Venezuelans (like famous Andres Galarraga, he's the Big Cat, ya'll!) make it a double. Gustavo Rojas is raffling a new “front porch” to raise funds for his campaign for parliament.
City hall will now let gay couples know where they can go (and not straight to hell, Stephen Colbert) to make their nuptials happen. I know that City Hall has a certain cache and credibility that the webs just don't, but don't they have bigger fish to fry? Defying the state and allowing gay weddings would be a good use of calories; voting to print out a page from Wikipedia is not.
A couple in Elma, Washington decided to get their rocks off by sneaking into a home, getting nakey, setting up a camera and getting down with the baby-making. In a scene that echoes the opening of "Old School," a neighbor came by for the mail and caught the copulating couple mid-coitus, at which point they cut out. Unfortunately, they left behind the camera and their sex tape.
There are several new-ish trends that women are engaging in to make themselves appear a little more "California." Some of these trends you know about. Some of these trends you'll never see until a gal is nude. The fix is in: some women will try anything to look a little younger.
There are a few things to keep in mind when online dating: 1) A picture says a thousand words, 2) if you're looking for something very specific, go for a niche site and 3) know thyself. A new dating site has the latter two facets covered in spades (with a little of the first thrown in for grins). A place called TheUglyBugBall has surfaced in the UK, a place known for its abject honesty. The dating site is BeautifulPeople.com's opposite, in that it's for people who realize they're unattractive.
The most recent wedding plus guns equals bloodshed math problem occurred in Turkey. And this jive turkey went down like this: a fellow, fresh off of going from bridegroom to husband celebrated by rattling a few rounds out of his AK-47. And this young Turk was likely of the untrained variety and sprayed down guests when he lost control of the rifle. His dad and two aunts were killed and several others were wounded. Proving once again that guns and wedding just don't mix.
There is a legend—an accepted legend but a legend nonetheless—that strong-headed, career-focused women are very difficult to please in the head, heart and baby-makers. Some combination of stress, perfectionism and immaculately kempt hair (periodically in a bun so tight that it makes changing facial expressions nigh impossible) make us think that she hasn't been properly rogered in eons and would probably be a drill sergeant in the sack. As it turns out, common knowledge is mad wrong, yo.
You know how some people think that PMS is just an excuse for some women to act crabby a few days per month? Well scientists in Taiwan may have cleared some things up. Brain scans show that intense cramps may cause permanent changes to a woman's brain.
Are you a little too embarrassed to read certain how-to books in public? Well, friend, you are in luck. The Kama Sutra has finally been converted to an audio book. The British publisher, Beautiful Books, has a smooth-voiced English actress reading the tome. And it turns out that this old Indian book is not just a how-to for sex positions, but also a guide for relationships.
The good folks at OK Cupid (the dating site) did a study correlating which mobile device their users upload photos from. They then cross-referenced that data (those data, if you will) with personality tests such as the "Slut Test" and realized that iPhone users have more sex partners than users of the BlackBerry or the Android.
While the concept of a shotgun wedding has been around since, well, before shotguns were invented, rarely do the firearms ever actually show up at the wedding. And for good reason, though guns don't kill people, excitable people with guns do. A couple in Sicily ended up having their wedding day turned upside down with a firearm mishap.
Stop me if you've heard this one: Men who cheat are misogynist pigs who wish they could just club women over the head and drag them back to their lair to have their way with them. Totally over-blowing it, right? Not so black-and-white, right? Sometimes there are circumstances, right? You can't expect powerful, charming and rich men to just turn it off, right? Whatever your stance on male infidelity, know this: men who cheat aren't the sharpest tools in the shed (though some of them are tools in general).
You know how some guys really just seem hesitant to get married? Maybe they have some commitment phobia or think that putting a ring-a-ding on it will steal their youth. There are as at least as many reasons as there are common-law married couples for cold feet. Well, not sure if you've seen this video but this gentleman's feet were approaching absolute zero.
