A couple's difficult journey towards having a baby: Part 2.
Without referring you to the many, many, medical sites, books and journals I immediately consulted on the subject, there is some belief that a certain vein that traverses one or both testicles can, in one way or another, affect the quality of sperm production. Operating on it may, or may not, improve sperm quality. In my case, a double varocelectomy was recommended.
Male infertility: a couple's difficult journey towards having a baby: Part 1.
I suppose everyone remembers their first time. I certainly do. I put on some mood music, dimmed the lights and proceeded to romance myself. Eager to please the laboratory (and myself), I marshaled my forces to climax, and then promptly fumbled the collection. Most of my contribution missed the container.
One woman explains what she's learned from her husband, who is 25 years older than she.
Billy Joel and his wife of nearly five years Katie Lee are splitting up. A "friend" of the couple told the New York Daily News that the age difference of 33 years drove the couple apart. I doubt it. Maybe, like so many couples that end up divorced, they just weren't meant to be. You never hear anyone say "Dick and Jane are the same age— that must have had something to do with their breakup." I call BS on blaming the age difference when it comes to divorce. Though, admittedly, I'm biased.
So you're pretty sure your husband isn't your soul mate. Rest assured. You're not alone.
More than half of women recently surveyed by AOL Living and Women's Day magazine say their husbands are not their soul mates, that they sometimes regret marrying their husbands, and that they have considered leaving their husbands at some point or another.
A part of us finds all of this a little surprising. Another part thinks, well, duh.
Becoming a father and stay-at-home dad puts a strain on a couple's marriage.
Becoming a father and stay-at-home dad puts a strain on a couple's marriage. "Even though we split many of the chores involved in caring for our son, my best energy, both physically and mentally, was going to our baby; my wife was getting the leftovers. She was understandably frustrated, but we both assumed it was just the natural process for a newborn. After a while, though, the position became untenable."
A father imagines his daughter's future boyfriends.
A father imagines his daughter's future boyfriends. "My elder daughter, who's 12, is just beginning to show an interest in boys, and since it's every man's dream to have his little princess marry a guy just like her father, I'm trying to craft a personal ad to attract the ideal candidate. Though my daughter's dating debut is 10 years down the line (at least), I find that I have a problem: I am horrified by the man I envision her with. Because, in reality, who the heck would date me? Then again, the kid could do worse..."
Terminator star Christain Bale says his moodiness makes wife Sibi a "lucky woman!"
Christian Bale's wife Sibi must really love him. According to the Terminator: Salvation star, she adores his unpredictable mood swings—especially when he’s getting into a new character. According to Starpulse, Christian said “My attitude does change at home, depending on which character I'm playing, but Sibi likes that. She thinks it's quite cool. You can look at it in two ways. You can think, 'That poor woman, forced to put up with that.' Or, 'What an incredibly lucky woman, who gets to be with all these different, guys all the time.'"
Ignore, avoid, confront? How should you handle difficult in-laws?

What busy woman wouldn't want a man wife? Find out what happens when one gets her wish.
Many a busy woman with a jam-packed schedule has daydreamed about having a nice, cozy man-wife, with bulging biceps, at home. After all, who wouldn't want to come home to a home-cooked meal hot off the over, a neatly made bed and a stack of freshly scented laundry....that's already been pristinely ironed and folded. In Annie Sanders' new book, Busy Woman Seeks Wife, one woman gets just this.
It's hard work keeping Manhattan's most powerful men undressed and on point.
"Sex is everywhere in The Girlfriend Experience, except there's no sex," one critic commented. "We come to understand that Soderbergh is less interested in sex work than he is in work." And so it seems The Girlfriend Experience really is a movie based upon the relationships, not the raunchy bits, of Manhattan's highest paid hookers.
