A married guy can't do a lot of things that his of things that his unmarried friends can. Sorry, that's how it goes. He can't share a bed with someone of the opposite gender, he can't respond for one to an eVite, he can't just throw towels away and he should forget the dutch oven even exists.
There is more than the man to blame when sh@! happens....
Business was going bad for a Chinese tycoon who decided, in December, to hold a "best mistress" pageant in order to cut costs and eliminate four of his five existing mistresses. Russian news agency Novosti reports that each mistress knew about the others. An allowance and free rent presumably helped to ease their jealousy, but the pageant—for which a modeling expert was brought in to help judge—pushed one mistress over the edge, literally.
I grew up in a family where sports was not a major part of life. We played an occasional game of badminton or croquet and maybe tossed a softball, but we never followed sports in the newspaper or on television. When it came to baseball cards, I chewed the gum and threw out the cards. When I read the newspaper, the sports section went untouched. All of that changed when I met my wife. As our relationship blossomed, so did my understanding of sports. Under her guidance, I learned about college basketball and March Madness along with terms like Sweet Sixteen and the Final Four. We and our kids now enjoy the annual tradition of filling out the brackets, even if it frustrates me that her bracket predictions are usually more accurate than mine.

Poll: Have You Had Ex Sex?: Yes, it's part of the breakup process. No, this only delays me from meeting someone new.
After her father-in-law dies of cancer and her sisters are in a car accident, one woman and her husband learn that sometimes supporting your spouse means being truly selfless and to get through the hard times you have to focus on what's important: " Support in a marriage is not a nice 50/50 split. Some days you are giving your all while your spouse is giving nothing and other days you are taking, offering nothing. After that night I tried to support Dave wholly—giving without taking. It was hard, but I never felt resentment. I knew that soon it would be my turn to give zero. And it was."
"When I think about her, I don't think: drunk. I think: runner. I think: artist. I see her dancing around our apartment, mouthing the words to Motown songs but miming disco moves. I consider how her voice deepens when she wants to talk about something serious, how she has no tolerance for indirect conversation or ambiguous language. I remember how my hands trembled when I met her. She wakes up in the morning in the middle of a conversation, asking, "What's the difference between a barnacle and a crustacean?" She has a long list of wacky endearments for me, including "my fresh coat of paint" and "my little prize-winning chicken," and she's in the very small group of people who think I'm fun--even when she's sober."
Traditionally, a woman takes a man’s name after marriage. Is this practice outdated? Should a woman take her husband's last name? What about him taking her name? How many syllables are appropriate for a hyphenation? In this episode of On the Couch, host Catie Lazarus hits the streets to debate this name game. While some say it’s a good way to boost a man’s ego, others question the importance of adopting a new last name.
According to CNN, a new breed of housewife is emerging: one who's jobless, childless and home by choice. The stay-at-home wives interviewed said a reduced amount of stress and an increased amount of quality time with their spouses were both the catalysts and benefits of quitting their careers. And for them, kids are either out of the question or on a distant horizon.
Mental Floss has a juicy top-five list up: "Five Scorned Women Get Their Revenge." But it's a chin-scratcher! Yeah, yeah, we understand Mental Floss is all smart and stuff, but we're unfamiliar with almost all of historical these tales of revenge. Boudicca? Lady Mao? The Chochiti tribe? I'm sorry, who? Maybe Mental Floss had no choice but to dip way far back into both history and obscurity. Despite the adage "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," there aren't a lot of contemporary examples -- other than the extreme ones, like Lorena Bobbitt and Ivana "Don't get mad, get everything" Trump. But damned if I'm ever going to let a member of the Trump family serve as an example for anything. (I, for one, almost stuff the contents of a takeout sushi dinner in ex's dresser drawers after being dumped -- but emphasis on the almost!)
Indeed, life-sized Barbie doll Cindy McCain, she of the flaxen-hair and bright white teeth, was not always the bride at the senator's side. McCain left for the Vietnam War married to another woman -- Carol McCain -- with whom he had three children. But their marriage of 15 years disintegrated in 1980 and married his current wife -- blonde beer heiress Cindy -- one month later.
Raucous, dramatic fights—me yelling, threatening to end things, and disappearing while he waited for me to simmer down—raged weekly in our early relationship. But as guests in sport coats and tea length dresses cheered our first kiss as man and wife, I realized our fights would have to change. How could I threaten to leave him when I had promised to stay with him forever? By the end of our wedding day, I had already shushed my inner drama queen once—the first step toward learning how to fight like a wife.
Words have power, no doubt. But why does the word 'wife' in particular conjure up so many connotations good and bad? To one woman it feels like too much of a destination and possibly too comfortable, whereas 'girlfriend' leaves a little mystery. With a little thoughtfulness, you can be both his wife and girlfriend. Also, you can find out what peezed means.
