Georgina Chapman Steps Out in London a Month After Leaving Husband Harvey Weinstein

Georgina Chapman was spotted for the first time since separating from her husband Harvey Weinstein after dozens of sexual misconduct accusations.

The British fashion designer stepped out in London on Friday dressed in all black with a long coat, ankle length pants and loose sweater. She also kept clear of jewelry and wasn’t wearing her wedding ring after separating from Weinstein shortly after the first wave of accusations surfaced.

Sources previously told PEOPLE that Chapman is laying low as the scandal continues.

“Georgina’s plan is to keep staying low-key,” a source told PEOPLE. “She is focused on her children and her business. She doesn’t have any plans for public appearances.”

And while Chapman, 41, and Weinstein, 65, have been in contact to discuss their two children, the source said there is no hope of reconciliation between the two.

On Oct. 10, Chapman announced she was leaving Weinstein. In a statement to PEOPLE, she said, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered.” She has since met with divorce lawyers.

“She is still shocked about all the women coming forward,” says the source. “She feels terrible. She is disgusted with Harvey and very angry.”

The Oscar-winning producer has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 50 women since The New York Times and The New Yorker documented decades of alleged sexual misconduct and sexual assault involving a number of women in detailed articles earlier this month.

A spokesperson for Weinstein previously told PEOPLE in a statement that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.”

Photo Of Gal Gadot’s Husband Wearing ‘Wonderful’ Shirt Goes Viral

A post shared by Gal Gadot (@gal_gadot) on

Yaron Versano has a pretty super wife.

Gal Gadot told Glamour she met her businessman husband at a “very strange party in the Israeli desert.”

“It was all about yoga, chakras, and eating healthy — we didn’t exactly find ourselves there, but we found each other,” she said.

The couple was married in 2008 and now have two young kids. Gadot gave birth to their second child this year.

A post shared by Gal Gadot (@gal_gadot) on

The actress credits her husband with helping her stick to her goals of pursuing acting, and her perseverance obviously paid off. Gadot recently led “Wonder Woman” to thus far around $ 500 million worldwide, breathing new life into the DCEU. 

You don’t need to tell her husband how great she is. Versano already knows, and he has the T-shirt to prove it.

In a new photo that’s going viral, Versano stands behind Gadot wearing a pretty “wonderful” shirt in honor of his Wonder Woman wife.

The photo received more than 1.2 million views in just its first 12 hours of being uploaded to Imgur, which makes sense. The image is so cute that the only explanation for it existing is that it was molded out of clay and brought to life by Zeus.

As BuzzFeed noted, the shirt is also on Amazon, for all the other husbands who have super wives (which is, you know, all the husbands). 

But this shirt was clearly meant for one dude to wear, and it’ll hit you right in the feels.

Sweet Husband Got His Wife’s Fingerprint Etched Onto His Wedding Band

Men often get the short end of the stick as far as wedding rings go. So when someone thinks outside the box, we can’t help but hand it to them.

Reddit user Im_High_Tech did just that by having his wife’s actual fingerprint etched onto his wedding band.

In an accompanying thread, he revealed that he was inspired a similar ring he had seen and “thought it would be great to make my wedding band more unique than stuff you buy at the store.”

But creating this declaration of undying commitment, which ran him just shy of $ 1,000, turned out to be quite a labor of love ― for both parties involved. He wrote that his partner had to “dip her thumb into ink like 70 times to get the perfect fingerprint” and he “had to photoshop the crap out of it because apparently on a microscopic level, a fingerprint is very messy.”

But the result, this oh-so personal band, appears to have been worth it. “This will also be my prized possession,” he wrote in response to one of the comments on the ring.

Seth Rosen, CEO and co-founder of Custom Made, where the ring was designed and created, told HuffPost they get a range of requests for personalized jewelry, from fingerprints (which he said has seen an uptick since this one showed up on Reddit) to materials sourced by the couple themselves.

“Some pieces are novel because they incorporate something very personal,” he said. “Like the pendant we created from a customer’s drawing of an olive branch growing from a broken heart:”

Rosen said something like the fingerprint ring would cost between $ 300-$ 350 in sterling silver all the way up to $ 900-$ 1,200 for a heavier gold.

Our minds are reeling with the print-abilities.

Taylor Lautner Has Been ‘Like A Husband’ To Girlfriend Billie Lourd

In December, actress Billie Lourd lost both her mother Carrie Fisher and her grandmother Debbie Reynolds just one day apart

A post shared by Billie Lourd (@praisethelourd) on

In the wake of their sudden deaths, Lourd and her uncle Todd Fisher ― Carrie’s brother ― have leaned on each other heavily. And it seems Lourd has also found an incredibly supportive partner in boyfriend and “Scream Queens” costar Taylor Lautner.

In an interview with E! News, Fisher said he always tends to be “suspicious of the guy hanging around [his] niece,” and yet had nothing but wonderful things to say about Lautner. 

“The truth of the matter is, the guy is pretty spectacular,” Fisher said. “He’s a really deep person, and he has supported her amazingly. He’s stepped up and acted like a husband would act. Not that that’s what’s going on, but it’s just an amazing support system for her, and I’m glad he’s in her life.”

On December 27 ― the day the “Star Wars” actress died ― Lautner posted a sweet photo with Lourd on Instagram with a caption that read, “This girl is one of the strongest, most fearless individuals I’ve ever met. Absolutely beautiful inside and out. I’m lucky to know you @praisethelourd. ❤️, me.”

A post shared by Taylor Lautner (@taylorlautner) on

The “Twilight” actor was also in attendance at the memorial and funeral for Fisher and Reynolds in January. The following week, Lautner and Lourd vacationed together in Mexico, further sparking rumors of a romance. And the pair has been spending a lot of quality time together ever since.

Melania Trump May Have Just Trolled Her Husband

First lady Melania Trump ― or whoever is running her account ― liked a tweet Tuesday that implied a chilly relationship between her and President Donald Trump

Here’s the tweet from progressive blogger Andy Ostroy that earned a like from the first lady’s official personal account: 

The like vanished shortly after it appeared, but it will survive forever in the form of a screenshot: 

The like was one of just two she’s bestowed ― the other being her first tweet.

So what’s the story? Accidental? Rogue staffer? Coded cry for help? Subtle trolling of her husband?

I Did Not Kill My Husband


Li Xuelian, married to Qin Yuhe, is pregnant with their second child. Happy news? Not in China, with its one-child policy. It is a crime. What is she to do? Her only option is divorcing before the second child is born. Once the baby has entered into the household registry, we’ll marry again. The baby will be born after the divorce, so we’ll each have one child when we marry again. No law says couples with one child can’t marry.” Perfect! Except that after the divorce, Qin marries. another woman who is expecting a baby. Mad with rage, Li runs to the judge begging him to declare the divorce a sham so she may remarry and truly divorce the fool! Liu’s politically charged plot reads like an absurd and hilarious comedy, softening what moves from a harsh indictment of China’s one-child law to a head-on critique of China’s corrupt system. I Did Not Kill My Husband is storytelling and satire of the highest order, sharp-edged and ironic.

Coretta Scott King Was ‘Architect’ of Husband Martin Luther King Jr.’s Legacy, Daughter Says

Coretta Scott King has long been known as the powerful force behind one of the nation’s greatest civil rights icons, her husband Martin Luther King Jr. But she has also cemented herself as a legendary activist in her own right.

“What we know of my father really came from her resilience, her determination, her faith, her courage,” Bernice King, the youngest daughter of Martin and Coretta, told ABC NewsRobin Roberts in an interview that aired Monday on Good Morning America.

“She used to say that this family is called. We grew up hearing that a lot,” she added, calling her mother the “architect of this King legacy.”

Scott King died of ovarian cancer in 2006 — nearly four decades after King Jr. was assassinated in 1968. Now, Scott King’s experiences and legacy are chronicled in a posthumous memoir called My Life, My Love, My Legacythe book is based on hours of never-before-published interviews.

“I believe Martin was chosen. I believe I was chosen. And I say to the kids, ‘this family was chosen as well,’ ” Scott King said in the memoir penned by journalist Barbara Reynolds.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Scott King stood alongside her husband during the civil rights movement, but suggested in one of the unheard interviews that she would not live in his shadow.

“I said, ‘Well you know, I love being your wife and the mother of your children. But if that was all that I did, I would go crazy,’ ” she said when recalling a conversation with a friend.

And her strides were not lost on King Jr. who at one point declared: “A wife can either make or break a husband. My wife was always stronger than I was through the struggle. In the darkest moments, she always brought a light of hope.”

The couple’s daughter, Bernice, recalled a 1956 incident in which their home was bombed while King Jr. was away.

“Mother was the one who first experienced the manifestation of a threat,” she said. “She had to first come to a resolve that ‘I’m willing to risk the loss of my own life before even him.’ ”

Bernice said she hopes that those who read her mother’s memoir will come to know that “Martin didn’t make Coretta Scott King. When they met she was prepared.”

“I honestly believe, in a different kid of way, she did greater things. Probably because she lived longer,” Bernice told Roberts of her mother. “Also because she had the insight to see who he really was, and articulate it in a way that an entire world could embrace regardless of your background.”

My Life, My Love, My Legacy (Henry Holt and Co.) will hit bookstores across the nation and online on Jan. 17.

Celine Dion Releases Touching Video About Emotional Months Without Her Husband

Celine Dion’s year has been a bittersweet one.

The “Recovering” singer released a retrospective video on Thursday looking back on her tough 2016 and showcasing the strength she’s shown in the face of devastating loss. 

In January, the beloved singer lost her husband, René Angélil, to throat cancer. Just a few days later, Dion’s brother Daniel died after his own battle with cancer. 

As the video shows, the singer put on a brave face for the couple’s three children, later returning to Vegas to put on an emotional show after Angélil’s death about a month later. Throughout the rest of the four-and-a-half minute clip, we see glimpses of Dion traveling around the world, performing, attending fashion and award shows and somehow finding the time to release her 26th studio album. 

“My voice does not resonate without you,” the singer said, ending the video with a touching note to her fans. “You have made my childhood dream come true. I hope I have inspired you to reach out for yours.”

This Husband And Wife Recreated Their Wedding Photos After 42 Years

Conrad and Louise Gonzales were married in 1974. Forty-two years later, the couple recreated their wedding photos ― and they look even more in love now than they did back then. 

In a BuzzFeed video posted Monday, Conrad and Louise recount their decades-long love story, from when they first met in a high school accounting class, to their first date touring a college in Pasadena, California, to their July 6, 1974 wedding day and some of the relationship hurdles they hit later on.  

While prepping for the anniversary photo shoot, the couple leafed through their wedding album, reminiscing about the big day all those years ago

“It also reminds me how blessed I am that after 42 years I’m still with my wife,” Conrad said after seeing the photos side-by-side. “I thank God that he allowed me to find this woman and enjoy a lifetime together.”

Husband Turns Spare Closet Into A Beautiful Vanity For His Nurse Wife

Christmas came early this year for wife and mom of three Kari Koelsch.

After casually mentioning to her husband Todd that she wished she had her own space to get ready in, he decided to convert a spare closet in their Tiffin, Ohio home into a vanity where she could do her makeup. And it’s all kinds of gorgeous: 

“I was talking about how we are always rushed when we are getting ready to go somewhere,” Kari told The Huffington Post. “We are very busy and I mentioned it would be nice if I had my own place to get ready. That way none of my things would be in his way.”

The couple, who tied the knot in July 2015, have number of other home improvements they are hoping to tackle. But Todd prioritized the vanity project so it would be complete in time for the holidays and Kari’s birthday, which is also in December. 

“My husband always puts me first, which is nice,” she said. “As a nurse, I don’t often get the luxury of putting myself first. So it’s so sweet that my husband does.”

Todd told his wife not to look in the closet until he was finished, but ultimately Kari couldn’t stop herself from sneaking a peek at his progress. 

“I was completely shocked when I saw it,” she told HuffPost. “I could not have asked for anything more beautiful and perfect for me.”

On Sunday, Kari’s sister Molly Maksemetz tweeted a before-and-after photo of the vanity closet. The sweet gesture clearly captured the Internet’s heart: the photos were retweeted more than 66,000 times. 

According to Kari, Todd is planning to complete the project this weekend. He still needs to add additional lights around the mirror, install another drawer and finish the seat.  

“I took those pictures when it wasn’t even done yet,” she said, referring to the images above. “I couldn’t wait! I was so excited.”

Kari told HuffPost that she is a fan of the color pink, sparkles and “anything girly.” So the decor, from the pink and white walls to the gold accents to the crystal light fixture, perfectly suits her taste.

“I’m almost shocked that Todd came up with such a feminine design,” she said. “He is a utility worker that’s usually covered in mud. He’s a big tough guy that wears work boots every day. I’m definitely surprised he thought of pink stripes.”

And while some couples may choose to buy pricey gifts for one another, Kari said it means so much more that her husband makes her presents instead. 

“When I look at my vanity I think of all the time he spent designing it and how much love he put into it,” she said. “He told me he didn’t spend very much money on it and most of the things he put in it were on sale. But when I look at it, all I can think of is how priceless it is to me. Money can’t buy the things I have.”

13 Times Ryan Reynolds Was The Husband Of Our Dreams

Our country is divided on a number of issues, but there’s one thing we can generally agree upon: Ryan Reynolds is a friggin’ gem.

The actor has been married to Blake Lively since 2012. And the couple, now parents to two kiddos, have been serving up relationships goals of epic proportions ever since. Below, 13 endearing moments that made Ryan Reynolds a dynamite husband in our eyes. 

1. When he made us swoon with this acceptance speech shout-out: 

2. When he wished his wife a happy birthday with his signature humor: 

3. When he complimented her red carpet swag:

4. When he professed his love for Blake on “Letterman”: 

5. But then before things got too mushy, he made us LOL again:

“I used to say to her, ‘I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you.’ I would say that to my wife. And the second I looked in that baby’s eyes, I knew in that exact moment that if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby.” 

6. When he bragged about her cooking skills (before the two were even an item): 

“There’s nothing she can’t cook, that’s sort of the problem…aren’t actors supposed to be out causing massive amounts of bad press and trouble? But this girl’s in a kitchen all day, baking our crew on our movie everything you can imagine. I mean she had soufflés coming in! What’s weird is that she would live 30 minutes away but when she brought stuff it was still warm. I think there’s an Easy Bake Oven in her car.” 

7. When he looked at Blake like she is the most perfect creature in existence:

And again:

And again: 

8. When he brilliantly trolled her on Halloween:

Happy ☠️Halloween REPOST: @cjarobison

9. When he didn’t shy away from some good old-fashioned poop humor: 

10. When he playfully cupped Blake’s boob: 

Two Deadpools, one cup. Your turn # L

A photo posted by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on

11. When he (jokingly) threw his wife under the bus:

12. When he thanked Blake at the MTV Movie Awards:

13. When he shared this masterful Photoshop of the couple in Britney and J.T.’s famous all-denim getups:

In the Cosmopolitan video above, men are asked to recall their wives’ wedding attire three weeks after the big day. 

“It was like they poured melted white chocolate on her,” one guy offers up. “Meshy, white thing coming off the back,” says another.

Cynthia Bailey Tells Estranged Husband Peter Thomas ‘I Just Can’t Be Married to You’ in Tearful RHOA Sneak Peek

 

An emotional Cynthia Bailey made the tough decision to begin divorce proceedings from husband Peter Thomas on the Real Housewives of Atlanta premiere. And on Sunday’s episode, the 48-year-old supermodel and her estranged husband come face to face for an emotional meeting.

In an exclusive sneak peek at the episode, Thomas tells Bailey that a hospital visit recently made him realize that she could no longer be his emergency contact. It’s a revelation that brings Bailey to tears.

“Just because we’re going through a divorce  mean I don’t care what happens to you,” she tells her ex, 56. “You’ve been my friend for eight years. You’ve been that person that I call.”

Like she had revealed to her lawyer previously, Bailey tells Thomas she wants their marriage to end peacefully.

“People say when you get divorced you can’t be friends and it’s going to be all this nasty stuff, like we’re gonna hate each other. And I don’t hate you. I don’t want to hate you,” she says. “I still want to be friends with you.”

Bailey even mentions her 17-year-old daughter Noelle Robinson, telling Thomas, “ still want you to have a relationship with Noelle — she’s know you since you were 8 years old. You’ve been like a second dad to her.”

“I love you, I respect you. I just can’t be married to you — that’s it,” she confesses.

She brings up a conversation the two had in their early days of dating. “When I first met you, we had that conversation about if we’re ever not happy, are you the kind of person to just settle to just be in something?” she said. “And you told me no.”

It’s a conversation that appears to give Thomas the motivation to move forward. “I do want to see you happy,” he tells her — before calling her lawyer, Daniel Meachum, and agreeing to sign off off on whatever he sends.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

Do Open Marriages Work? How Dating Other People Brings Me Closer To My Husband

For some people, perhaps, having an open marriage is a concession. Perhaps cheating comes to mind; you imagine that after infidelity, a couple has made a new vision of their marriage. These are marriages that “make- do” after the scar tissue has healed. But frankly, that isn’t the way it’s done in my polyamorous community, or my open marriage.

My situation is not at all about concessions. For me, sex with someone else is not a deal breaker. Being intentionally cruel, not taking care of our family, disrespecting me, and lying — all constitute deal breakers. But occasionally “stepping out” may just be part of our biology.

Right now, my marriage is mostly closed. Our lives are tremendously time-challenged. We have four kids and busy careers. But having some openness is one of many ingredients that keep the erotic life active in our marriage. Keeping an erotic charge can be challenging, given that almost every force in domestic life works against it. There are bills to be paid, kids demanding attention, and the endless, sexless grind of chores.

It all started a year ago, when my husband and I decided to go on an adventure. I wanted to have sex with a woman, not having done so in many years. The whole idea both titillated my husband and scared him a bit. We discussed what would make him feel safe and comfortable, and when he gave me the green light, I met a lovely woman online.

Bonnie, like me, was married and bisexual. We decided to meet at a local pub. There was an instant attraction. After half an hour of sipping martinis and flirting, we discovered that both of our husbands were parked close-by, nervously awaiting news of what was happening.

Sometimes, sleeping with new people is a measuring stick of how connected you are to your spouse.

Giggling, we texted them to join us. What followed was a new friendship between all of us. This is what I love about open marriage — the unpredictability. I was not expecting to be completely enchanted by her husband. Bill was so sex-positive and supportive about Bonnie exploring her newly confessed attraction to women. Bonnie had unintentionally “come out” at a BBQ the year before when she made out with her best friend — ironically, in a walk-in closet upstairs. While Bonnie’s best friend’s husband was angry and mortified, Bill was loving and supportive, encouraging Bonnie to explore this new part of her sexuality.

open marriges

The four of us had some great dates together. Eventually, time and family commitments slowed down our contact. But it was an adventure I’ll always cherish for many reasons — one of the main ones is that it heightened the love and trust between me and my husband. People assume that you get the excitement from the outside sexual encounters — and you sometimes do. But, as we explore who we are and what we desire, openness keeps the mystery alive between my husband and me.

The morning after our first date with Bonnie and Bill, my husband and I were snuggling and talking about how surprisingly fun and drama-free the evening had been. Our hearts were so open with the realization of how much we loved each other. Sometimes, sleeping with new people is a measuring stick of how connected you are to your spouse.

I am the last person alive who’d try extreme sports — I can barely grasp the need to risk your life in an effort to feel more alive. But there is an allure in the emotional skydiving of allowing your mate to be sexual with someone else. There’s exhilaration in moving through the fear of the potential loss of the relationship that, for us, is often followed by an all-consuming gratitude for each other; a gratitude that can get lost in the shuffle of mundane life.

I believe that the second wave of polyamory has a distinctly feminist bend to it. In most poly-marriages I know of, the woman is not a “victim,” but many times the initiator.

My open marriage improves my connection with my spouse. It is an intentional way to evolve together, a way to create spaciousness in our connection while also maintaining a deep bond.

Yesterday, I was talking to an acquaintance about my open marriage. She stated flatly “No one enters their marriage expecting they’ll open it.” She assumed I opened my marriage because it was flawed. Her concept of open marriage was that it was a patch job post “cheating”–a second best set up, built on the belief that passion fades, all relationships sour, and a series of necessary concessions have to be made, one of them being sex with other people.

Her thinking is fairly pervasive and a complete misread on most open marriages I know of. My open marriage improves my connection with my spouse. It is an intentional way to evolve together, a way to create spaciousness in our connection while also maintaining a deep bond. In my mind, the challenge of sustaining the vitality in long-term relationships lies in fostering the opposite qualities of passion versus stability, and wildness versus predictability. My interest lies in maintaining both ends of the spectrum, and openness in my marriage is one of the many tools I use to achieve this goal.

open marriage

Every open marriage is different, just as monogamous marriages are varied. People have different philosophies and motivations. For me, I want the freedom to create a marriage based on my value system — not someone else’s.

It’s a delicate balance to create stability and excitement in a marriage. There is a tipping point for me; to make it work I need trust, clear agreements, and lots of communication. I’ve often imagined if my house or phone were tapped by surveillance cops, they’d sit in a bored stupor listening to hours of my husband and I conversing about the nuance of our feelings, needs, fantasies, thoughts — they’d surely beg for the “good old days” of surveilling the mafia.

But it is this nuanced conversation that keeps my marriage fresh. Recently, my husband and I discussed what we would “allow” each other on separate upcoming business trips. After nearly an hour of checking in on how we both felt, the general state of our marriage, if the majority of our needs were being met sexually, emotionally, astrologically (kidding), we both agreed that we weren’t connected enough currently. What we really needed was a vacation together. The timing of our trips wasn’t good for us — and if we “hooked up” with other people, it could potentially cause hurt feelings. I only take calculated risks in my marriage. I am all about checking if there’s water in the pool before doing a spectacular high dive.

People have said to me, “Open marriage seems like so much work! I couldn’t be bothered to put so much time into an open marriage.” But the art of the relationship is something I feel devoted to. When you love something, you spend time caring for it.

Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” I want to be in the habit of investing energy into the art of love, passion, and a continued sustaining bond with my husband. And for me, that means putting sleeping with other people on the table.

Courtney Love Pens Heartbreaking Message To Late Husband Kurt Cobain

Courtney Love’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain turned 23 on Aug. 18, and the milestone seems to have stirred some emotions in the rock star. 

On Aug. 19, Love shared a photo of herself with her late husband, Kurt Cobain, in bed with Frances when she was just a baby. Love captioned the photo, “My greatest love and our precious Bean #missyou #memories.” 

My greatest love and our precious Bean #missyou #memories

A photo posted by Courtney Love Cobain (@courtneylove) on

Two days later, the 51-year-old singer shared another image from the same photo shoot and penned a heartbreaking message to Cobain, who died in 1994 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

“Makes me feel so sad. Our baby is all grown up now. Jesus Kurt look at her face, what on earth were you thinking..!?!? God I miss you, we all miss you #family #memories #turnbacktime #lovehim,” she wrote.

While Cobain never really seems to fade from the headlines, the late rocker was in the spotlight again earlier this year with the release of the documentary “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck,” which saw Frances Bean acting as executive producer and had Love’s full support.

Why Does My Husband Get Upset That I Don’t Orgasm?

Reader No O writes:

Hi. I was wondering if you can help me. I have loads of problems surrounding my marriage and here’s one of them. My husband doesn’t want to have sex with me anymore because I can’t orgasm. He also informed me that eventually if there’s no sex between us, he’ll seek it elsewhere. Which I don’t doubt he wouldn’t step out of the marriage. He has done so before for other reasons. I just feel it’s ridiculous to not have sex. I enjoyed having sex with him even though there’s no orgasm. There’s good feelings and also just being physically close is nice. Yes, it would be great to have one if it happens. It’s not very enjoyable being pressured to have one, however. Either way, he cares not that I still had enjoy the sex with getting to the big O. I don’t know what his real problem is. Why is it important to him? It’s not like he can feel what I feel.


IMG_20130703_213328_366 (1) nope

Dear NO,

I am torn between telling you that your husband sounds like a controlling and self-absorbed narcissist (you can read about them in any of these books) who needs extensive individual therapy, and using this platform to explain why women’s orgasms are so important to men.  Thankfully, those two options are not mutually exclusive.  Let’s first turn to your husband, and his relationship-destroying behaviors.

Your husband cheated on you in the past and is telling you that if he doesn’t have sex with you, he will look outside the marriage for sex elsewhere.  This is called emotional blackmail and you can read about it here: Emotional Blackmail: When the People in Your Life Use Fear, Obligation, and Guilt to Manipulate You.  Also in all those books I linked you to above.  The most absurd part of his ultimatum is that it is HIM who is refusing to have sex with you!  I really am angry on your behalf and sad that you are putting up with this level of emotional abuse, because that is exactly what this is.

I am sure that your husband is a troubled guy, who probably had a tough childhood in some respect or another, because apparently it turned him into a completely self-absorbed adult who is unable to see how his behavior is killing his relationship.  He is blaming you for something your body is unable to do and then threatening to have sex with other women, which is not an empty threat (and an empty threat would be bad enough, mind you) because he has been unfaithful before.  When you see it written out like that, does it not help you to see what a toxic situation this is?

Now if you just couldn’t orgasm, and you were with a loving and supportive partner, I would suggest the following strategies:

1. Try masturbation, with or without porn or erotic stories, to figure out if there is a way that you can get yourself to reach orgasm.

2. See a therapist with whom you can discuss possible deep seated issues surrounding sex, and, more broadly, how you deal with vulnerability and loss of control, which issues related to orgasm.

However, in the marriage you’re in currently, I do not think these strategies will do much.  I think it would be foolish to be vulnerable with your husband, because he is so obviously unsupportive and self-centered, and your inability to reach orgasm with him may be your body’s way of saying, “Danger! Don’t fully trust and open up to this guy!”  The mind-body connection is very real and important, particularly in regard to sexuality.

I urge you to get couples counseling and therapy of your own though, to deal with the following questions:

1. Why does your husband think that cutting you off from sex and threatening to seek it elsewhere is an appropriate response to this situation?

2. Why do you put up with this behavior from him?

You allude to other marital problems, and I am certain there are many.  Your husband needs to realize that he is acting in an emotionally abusive way, and hopefully a therapist can be of help in this regard.

Next, let’s turn to why women’s orgasms are so important to men:

1. It makes them feel like they are good in bed.

2. It is exciting to them sexually to watch and feel you orgasm.

3. It assuages any of their own insecurities about their penis size, performance, technique, etc., because obviously they are doing something right if you orgasm.

4. Think about if your husband never orgasmed.  Would you want to have sex as much?  I see couples with this issue in therapy, often when a man is on antidepressants which increase his time to orgasm dramatically and/or prevent him from ever reaching climax.  To many women, when a man can’t orgasm, over time, they begin to feel detached and uninterested during sex.

5. I mean, evolutionarily speaking, the point of sex is to climax.  The man’s orgasm obviously releases sperm but the female’s orgasmic contractions help to pull the sperm up where they can be more easily fertilized.  So men are wired to go for the gold, both for themselves and their partners.

6. You say it’s not like he can feel what you feel, but this isn’t strictly true.  Ideally, sexual partners are so attuned to one another that they can in fact basically feel what the other feels, which is why an orgasm in one partner may trigger one in the other, during intercourse or mutual masturbation.  Additionally, he would be able to physically feel orgasmic contractions in your vagina if you were to orgasm during sex.

7. In a loving relationship, people like to see their partner experience pleasure. It’s almost as good as feeling pleasure yourself, and sometimes even better. (However, I see why in this particular marriage you would find it difficult to understand why he would care if you experience orgasmic pleasure, because he doesn’t seem to care if you experience pleasure in other ways, such as by being spoken to with respect and kindness.)

8. Also, whenever one partner dismisses the other’s perspective and asks what the “real” problem is, this invariably lead to a bad dynamic.  By asking this, you are invalidating his perspective that you not having an orgasm IS his real problem.  It’s like if you told him to stop being a jerk and he said, “What’s your REAL problem though? Do you have PMS or something?”  Bad scene.

So, in a more loving and supportive marriage, I would expect your husband to be sad that you don’t orgasm, and to brainstorm ways that you could try to orgasm, and to want to research ways he could get you to orgasm, and all of that kind of problem-solving stuff that men love to do.  I mean, I empathize with a husband whose wife doesn’t orgasm, I really do.  I would have empathized with both of you in this situation, except that your husband is acting like a tremendous jerk (which I do not say often) by threatening you with infidelity and cutting you off from sex completely.  His behavior is NOT acceptable.  I hope that with a therapist, he can explore why he acts this way, and who is his early life likely treated him in the cold and mean way that he treats you.

And even if he doesn’t seek counseling for himself or agree to the couples counseling that you also need, I urge you to seek your own individual counseling because this type of blackmail and ultimatum-giving is just going to continue in other areas of the relationship, and you don’t deserve it.  You need to figure out why you’ve let it go on this long and how you can become someone who asserts herself and refuses to be treated with disrespect.

Good luck and thanks for writing in.  Till we meet again, I remain, The Blogapist Who Says Get Thee To A Couples Counselor and READ THOSE BOOKS.

Dear Future Husband (Assuming You Exist): 16 Things You Need To Know

Originally published on Unwritten by Mallory Arnold.

If you know me like I imagine you one day will, you know that I’ll start this letter off awkwardly.

Um, hey.

A future husband is like some mythical creature… like the Lochness Monster or Bigfoot.

I know, I just compared you to Bigfoot — but I swear it gets better. Keep reading.

Point being, when we were little, creatures like unicorns and elves sounded amazing and we couldn’t wait to find one someday. Sadly, as we grew older, it seemed like it was less and less likely that we’d see anything of the sort. The closest that we’d get was the leprechaun on a Lucky Charms box, and don’t even get me started on the disappointment Santa Claus caused. Likewise, a husband – a future soul mate – seems too fantastical nowadays to be real. We once dreamed about a prince charming, and nowadays we’re accepting we might just have to crawl out of that tower and find him ourselves.

But I know you’re out there. Maybe you’re going through the same things I am. Are you working at some summer job you hate but secretly like? Do you feel that pit of anxious excitement about a future career? Or maybe not. Maybe you’re actually a professional bullfighter/puppy rescuer and we’re not doing anything similar right now – who knows.

Here are just a few things I’d like to tell you while you’re somewhere out there.

Be safe while driving. I’m assuming you’re jamming out to something on the radio — whether it be country, rock, classic, or rap (please don’t be screamo), don’t get wrapped up in scrolling through songs. If your good buddy Jim from the office (rodeo?) texts you, let him wait until you’re parked. It would be a shame if something happened to you before we could even meet. Be safe.

Collect extra T-shirts and hoodies. Just warning you ahead of time, because I’m a T-shirt bandit. Might as well be prepared.

We’re getting a dog. If you’re not a dog person, I’d suggest starting to become one, because dogs are life. If you already love canines, be ready to brainstorm names. Because our dog’s about to be awesome.

Don’t give up — ever. These are the days where life starts to get serious and sometimes when you fall, no one is there to pick you back up. I wish I could reach a hand out, but since I can’t, I want you to keep going. Never stop doing something you’re passionate about.

I can make a pretty mean bowl of spaghetti. Just thought you should know.

If you’re thinking about getting a tattoo… You get drunk when you’re out with your buddies, and now you’re romping around town with that swagger you have. Suddenly a batman tattoo stamped across your face seems like a pretty good idea, right? Please, think twice. I beg of you.

I’ve been hurt. I’m sorry to say, but you may be receiving me bruised and a little bent. While you were not present in my life, boys have wandered here and there. Some good, some bad. The bad ones I will gladly hand over their names so you may threaten to kick their butts.

I’m bad at taking compliments. More than likely, when you compliment me, I’ll respond with a frown or a gentle punch in the arm. Please don’t be discouraged, I’ll get better at it, I promise. Just don’t be surprised if I fall out of my chair or something.

I don’t like beer. So that beer in the fridge? Don’t worry about it disappearing. All yours.

I’m rooting for you. When it seems like everyone’s turned their backs against you, just know somewhere I’m out there cheering you on.

I’m horrible at making decisions. Ask me where I want to go for dinner? I won’t know. Ask me what movie I want to see? I can’t decide. I panic. A lot.

Spend good time with your family. They’re always gonna be your best friends no matter what, and I like them already.

Accept my arm wrestling challenges. I may lose every time, but never deny me the chance to try. And don’t let me win. I got this.

Prepare to own every Disney movie ever made. Preferably on VCR, if possible.

No, please don’t ask to see old pictures of me in braces. I know you love me now and all that jazz…but you don’t wanna know.

I can’t be more excited to fall in love with you.

To all the girls out there wondering if there is ever going to be someone for them — we can’t give up. It’s easy to say “Forever alone” and put yourself down all the time. But if you put yourself out there and do something you’re passionate about, you’ll find him. If you give up now, you’re letting him down. If you give up and wait in your tower, you’ll never get the list he’s writing you.

So right now, future husband, I guess you’re a mystery like Bigfoot or those darned unicorns we just can’t seem to track down.

But I know one day when we finally meet, you’ll be my best friend. And I can’t wait.

Help! My Husband Just Retired

Help! My Husband Just Retired


After waiting almost forty years for her husband to stop his frantic-paced, globe-trotting career, a wife encounters the realities of retirement life that were never discussed at all the retirement seminars. Most women are clueless about what to expect when a husband walks in the door from work and says, “Honey, I’m home”…forever. We understand why financial preparation is necessary, but little is discussed about preparing a wife for the emotional and psychological reality of being “joined at the hip” with her husband every day. The author began her retirement journey unaware of all the detours, dead-ends, side trips, and wrong directions she would encounter and discovered that most of the other wives she met along the way were just as confused. In this frank, honest, and humorous story, a seasoned retired wife takes a look back at what she thought was going to happen when her husband retired, what really happened, and what she would do differently if she had the opportunity for a do-over. Expectations, location, friendships, senior discounts, the Sandwich Generation, grandchildren, volunteering, downsizing, fitness, spiritual guidance, and adventure are a few topics every wife needs to consider before she has travelled too far down this new road. The author believes there should be Retired Wife Mentors provided by Medicare; but until that happens, Help! My Husband Just Retired should help a soon-to-be or novice retiree’s wife over the initial hurdles of what might prove to be the best destination spot of her lifetime.

My Husband Is a Slob and Thinks I’m Type A

Reader Married to the Slob writes:

My husband thinks I have a chronic problem of trying to do too much and that my expectations of myself and everyone else are too high. I think he needs a kick in the ass because he is SO laid-back. The only reason we haven’t killed each other yet is because he is too lazy to follow through and I am too overwhelmed to bother with it.

He grew up in a household where no one cleaned or had a bedtime or anything so my normal standards for what is acceptable seem sky-high to him. His dad is a hoarder, so his standards for clean are very low. He is so laid-back and I have trouble just sitting and relaxing. I have always been a busy type person.

I guess I have high standards when it comes to a few things: I shower daily, I keep our kids clean, I go to the gym and try to take care of myself but I am in NO WAY a perfectionist. My husband showers like 2-3 a week and he never exercises. He does make me happy and I do love him, so these things just sound nit-picky.

We went to marriage counseling to sort out some of these issues after our first child was born. We now have 3 children ages 6, 3, and 1. I stay home with them. Our oldest is in school most of the day. We do not have a cleaning lady or any extra help; I keep our 2500 square foot house in order, in addition to cooking and laundering 5 people’s worth of food and clothes. I do all of the grocery shopping. I am happy that I can stay at home, but it’s just a LOT. Meanwhile, he is a huge slob … there are literally ants living in his car. They’ve been in there for 8 months.

In counseling we learned that I am anxiety-prone (duh) and he has adult-ADHD (not surprising). We both took medication for awhile and got on track and have learned coping mechanisms that have carried us up to this point. We are both no longer on medication, but I wonder if:

1. We SHOULD BE on meds?
2. Additional stress of me trying to have a writing “career” or “hobby” has put us in a bad place because I am unable to keep up with everything on my own?
3. I’m going to flip out one day and have a nervous breakdown?

I know this is a common issue but I don’t know what steps I should take so resentment doesn’t continue to build. I just feel irritated with him all of the time and I hate it! I definitely don’t want to be “that” wife.

Dear MTTS,

Well, given the general tone of your letter, it sounds like you’re certainly still suffering from anxiety. No shame in that.  In fact, over 18% of Americans suffer from an anxiety disorder.  Why not go back on your meds?  It may cut down on some of your feeling of impending nervous collapse.   And why does your husband not go back on his ADHD meds?  This makes a huge difference in many ADHD marriages, my own included.  Honestly, it also sounds like you might have ADHD as well, but hyperactive type.  ADHD people often find one another, and have very intense courtships.  This may explain how you can never sit still and seem to be a perpetual motion machine.  So get evaluated for that as well.

Next, why not resume your marriage counseling?  It sounds like it was very helpful and informative.  You don’t have to go for a year straight, but it sounds like you can use a tune up.  Plenty of couples do this in my practice, it’s not one and done.  You guys had two great support mechanisms in place: meds and counseling, and now you’re not using either.  Why?  Are there lingering issues of shame about needing meds or therapy?  Please reconsider.  And whether or not your writing is causing stress is something only you can answer, hopefully with a clearer head from going back on your meds and seeing a counselor yourself.

Next, I feel for your husband having grown up with a hoarder parent.  Read a guest post about this here.  It can be traumatizing.  It also colored his view of what’s “normal,” as any type of dysfunctional family does.  In our Western society, it is not normative for an adult male to shower 2-3 times a week.  I am just guessing here, but I would imagine that this impacts your intimate life.  This would be a great thing to tell him as lovingly as possible, particularly if it would lead to an increase in frequency of sex.

You and your husband need to be able to communicate using more empathy and validation for one another’s perspectives.  This is something great to work on in counseling.  You seem to love one another but the relationship has become fraught with irritation and possibly even contempt on both sides. You owe it to yourselves and your kids to work this out now, through meds, counseling, individual therapy, and whatever else you need to make it work.

Good luck, and keep me updated.  Till we meet again, I remain, The Blogapist Who Says, As One to Another, You Sound Type A, But That Showering Thing Isn’t Helping Anybody.

My Husband Was Living in the Wrong Body

My husband has felt like he was living in the wrong body for as long as he can remember. As a little boy, he always wanted to be a girl. He wanted to wear girls’ clothes and have long hair that could be styled in curls and pinned back with pink plastic barrettes. He wanted to roll strawberry lip gloss onto his lips. He wanted to be pretty.

My husband mustered up the courage to share this innermost part of himself with me back in 1984, one year after we got married. As a young bride, I was confused and did not understand what was wrong with him. I was angry and hurt that he would have such desires. I hoped he wasn’t a sexual deviant. I wondered why being married to me and starting a new life wasn’t enough for him. I simply did not know about a condition known as gender dysphoria. My husband was at odds with his birth gender. At the time, we had no resources. There was no Internet to turn to. His secret had become ours, and we continued wrestling with his unexplained desire to dress as a woman, a need so great it was unstoppable.

Our marriage became one that had two stories. One story was the story of success shown to the outside world — the story that unfolds with two beautiful sons, accomplished careers, vacations, cars and the house on the hill. And then there is the other story, a private tale of confusion, hurt feelings and resentment. There are chapters of our marriage when my husband’s desire to cross-dress was too great not to act out on, followed by dark periods of depression for having to live a life that felt wrong; times when I was threatened as a wife by the woman inside of my husband; moments when I was angry at this inner woman that dwelled within him, and lashed out at him because I didn’t know how to get to her. We had a story that was kept private, unable to share with the outside world.

2015-06-18-1434658725-6919970-ScreenShot20150618at4.16.13PM.png

After 25 years of marriage, our two stories had become blurry and it had become emotionally draining to keep the narratives defined. Our worlds were changing, and more information regarding gender dysphoria and transgender individuals had become available. I was able to understand better that there was nothing wrong with me, or with us. The only thing wrong was that my husband strongly felt he was a woman, and that fact was slowly destroying his spirit. The need to be a woman had become too great.

Together, we decided to rewrite our marriage and to live one true story. We agreed that my husband would transition fully into a woman. In the last three years, the husband that I married revolved into a woman with the use of hormones and surgery. It has been a whirlwind of couples therapy, legal papers and name changes. There have been many conversations with friends, coworkers and family members, both positive and negative. It has been a time of many changes.

My life as the wife of a transgender person is a roller coaster. There are many ups and downs, yet not once have I felt like I want to get off this ride. I am still in love with the person I married back in 1984. A person who today is a she. She has transitioned successfully into a woman both physically and emotionally. Most importantly, she is who she is today, and because of that, I have witnessed true joy in the person I’ve grown a life with — a person whose blue eyes shine because she feels right in her own skin.

Our story is still being written, and is far from over. This essay is just a blurb to the deeper story. There are more words to come. Words of how I feel as the wife. Words of love and acceptance as well as words of complicated grief while I stood by the person I married and wanted more than anything to have this story finish with a happy ending. Words I will write that will continue to tell our story, our one true story, for the world to see.

Zoe Saldana’s Husband Took Her Last Name—Against Her Wishes

Zoe Saldana's 2013 wedding to smoking-hot artist Marco Perego was shrouded in such mystery, the world didn't really know it had happened until reports about a supposed summer wedding started surfacing the following fall. And…

Zoe Saldana Doesn’t Get Why Everyone’s Shocked Her Husband Took Her Name

Zoe Saldana is here to remind men that it’s NBD to take your wife’s last name.

“Fathers, sons, brothers, men everywhere: Your legacy will not perish if you take your partner’s surname, or she keeps hers,” the actress wrote in a June 8 Facebook post.

In an interview for the July cover story of InStyle, Saldana revealed that her husband, Italian artist Marco Perego, chose to adopt her last name after their 2013 marriage.

“I tried to talk him out of it. I told him, ‘If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world’,” she told InStyle. “But Marco looks up at me and says [she puts on a cute Italian accent], ‘Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a sheet.’”

The news made headlines across the web (including in this publication), because, it’s still the assumed default for a woman who marries a man to change her name to match his — however retro that may seem. According to a 2013 YouGov poll , 61 percent of respondents thought that women should take their husbands’ last names, while less than half of those polled even thought that a man should be allowed to take his wife’s name.

Saldana shared her thoughts on Facebook about the public reaction to her husband’s name. “Why is it so surprising, shocking, eventful that a man would take his wife’s surname?,” she asked. “Women have never been asked if its ok for them to give up their names — why doesn’t that make the news?”

She went on to reassure men that their identities would not be erased by a simple name change, imploring us all the rethink the way we define what being a masculine man means:

Men, you will not cease to exist by taking your partner’s surname. On the contrary — you’ll be remembered as a man who stood by change. I know our sons will respect and admire their father more because their father lead by example.
Gentlemen, I implore you to think outside the box- remove the box altogether. Let’s redefine masculinity. A real “man” leads along side his partner. A real man accepts his mortality. A real man acknowledges that nothing can be done alone.

(You can read the full Facebook post below.)

Fathers, sons, brothers, men everywhere: Your legacy will not perish if you take your partner’s surname, or she keeps…

Posted by Zoe Saldana on Monday, June 8, 2015

Preach, Zoe. We look forward to a day when a man changing his last name doesn’t even warrant a comment.

Is The Husband Supposed to Be the Leader In Marriage?

A few years ago, I attended the wedding of a dear friend of mine. Before the actual ceremony the minister took time to give a powerful bit of counsel to everyone who had gathered. His words affected me so deeply that they have prompted me to change not only how I approach my marriage, but also my relationships with family and friends.

From what I can remember, the minister said this:

In scripture, husbands have been called the head (or leader) of the household. The world scoffs at such an idea, but that is because the world has a perverted sense of leadership. The world thinks of a leader as the person in charge — a person who makes all of the decisions, forces everyone to do what he wants and then takes all of the glory for himself. But the world’s way of leadership is not God’s way of leadership. Leadership, the way God intended it, is a call to service. God’s leadership, simply put, is the rendering of humble service to those you love and giving the glory to God.

Too often, men seek solitude from or power over those they claim to love. This is perverted leadership. God calls men to a road that brings them in harmony with their wives and children. Yes, you will make decisions, but you will make them with the intent to serve your family — not yourself. Remember, the God who calls others to lead is the same God who washed the feet of His disciples. There is no unrighteous pride in God’s form of leadership — only perfect love.

Some may question the wisdom of this minister, but I have tested his words and found them be true. I have put his advice into practice in my own life, and I’ve realized that some of the most difficult times in my marriage have been the times when I myself have exercised a perverted sense of leadership — made demands, ignored my wife’s needs in favor of my own or withheld forgiveness. In contrast, the happiest times in my marriage have been those where I’ve “taken charge,” and more fully devoted myself to my wife — recommitting to serve her and see her needs as equal to my own.

That minister’s counsel has blessed not only my marriage, but nearly all of my relationships. As I’ve applied these principles to my life, I’ve come to realize that every relationship in life presents us with “leadership opportunities” — moments in which we are called to serve, guide, protect and love one another. Recognizing these calls to leadership (and acting on them) has made me a better husband, friend, brother and son.

I would like to extend this minister’s message to you: Start today and consider ways that you are being called to lead in love. While there are many types of relationships with different dynamics, I can promise you that as you sincerely recognize and meet the needs of those you care about, you will feel a greater sense of love and appreciation for those you serve.

The Question No One Asks My Husband

2015-05-29-1432863815-4001637-marriagelastnamequestion.jpg

My husband and I celebrated our one-year wedding anniversary back in March.

In the 14+ months of our marriage, there is one question that I have received countless times. One question that no one bothers asking my husband.

Why didn’t you change your name?

Why didn’t you want to take your wife’s last name?

How does your wife feel about your decision to keep your last name?

No one has thought to ask my husband about his decision to keep his last name when we got married.

Not a single person has asked him any of those questions above. But strangers are quick to ask him why I kept my last name!

Yes, strangers.

Not intimate friends or immediately family members. Strangers.

Strangers feel entitled to know why I made a choice that doesn’t affect them in the slightest.

I know what some of you are thinking…

Um, Brita? Didn’t you start the conversation with your satire? Don’t you always ask for comments and questions?

Surprisingly, not that many people responded to my satire by asking me why I kept my last name. If anyone did, that didn’t bother me, because it was relevant to the post.

But people have been asking me this question long before I had my 15 minutes of fame, and they still ask me, even without having read my satire. Like I said, even strangers feel comfortable asking my husband why I didn’t take his last name.

For the record, misogyny and sexism are not the same thing. You can have the best of intentions and be the nicest person in the world and still be sexist.

Asking me why I didn’t change my last name is sexist.

Period.

You are asking me a question that you would never ask my husband. That’s practically the textbook-definition of sexism.

But that’s not the only reason why asking me about my last name is sexist.

There is an awful lot of entitlement in asking an individual to explain a personal choice that does not affect you. This entitlement pops up a lot when a person with privilege demands an explanation from a person without privilege.

Frequently, the problem isn’t so much the question itself (but it’s still sexist), but how the question is asked. Rarely is it a standalone question. Usually it is followed by one of the following:

  • Do you not love your husband?
  • Are you planning a future divorce?
  • Why did you even get married if you didn’t want to change your name?

These questions just drip with condescension.

Apparently my personal and individual choice to ignore a tradition steeped in patriarchy could possibly tear apart the social fabric holding America together. Or something.

I do feel like feminism has made some progress here. Like my friend Kelly pointed out in her own post on the subject, the fact that people ask her if she’s changing her name or not is a win for feminism… Even if they’re not asking her fiancé the same question.

Until we take a few more steps forward, I’ll keep innocently explaining that my husband didn’t feel like taking my last name. It’s amazing how people react when I say that!

But hey, if you’re still dying to know why I kept my last name, I’ll give you a hint as to one of the many reasons.

Google “galaxy Brita Long,” and yes, you’ll need those quotation marks in the search bar.

Would you give that up, just for the sake of “tradition”?

I Did Not Kill My Husband

I Did Not Kill My Husband


Li Xuelian, married to Qin Yuhe, is pregnant with their second child. Happy news? Not in China, with its one-child policy. It is a crime. What is she to do? Her only option is divorcing before the second child is born. “Once the baby has entered into the household registry, we’ll marry again. The baby will be born after the divorce, so we’ll each have one child when we marry again. No law says couples with one child can’t marry.” Perfect! Except that after the divorce, Qin marries. another woman who is expecting a baby. Mad with rage, Li runs to the judge, begging him to declare the divorce a sham so she may remarry and truly divorce the fool! Liu’s politically charged plot reads like an absurd and hilarious comedy, but couched in his fiction is a harsh indictment of China’s one-child law and a head-on critique of China’s corrupt system. I Did Not Kill My Husband is storytelling and satire of the highest order, sharp-edged and ironic.

Has This Husband Taken His Football Fandom Too Far? | The Oprah Winfrey Show | Oprah Winfrey Network

Original airdate: November 24, 1993

Cathy Crispino’s husband, Joe, was what some people would call a ‘sports fanatic.’ He had four (tube) televisions in his living room alongside the Sportscaster, a machine that beamed scores directly into homes long before phones could fit into pockets. Suffice it to say, Cathy was none too happy with Joe’s pigskin addiction.

10 Reasons Christmas Makes Me Love My Husband Even More

No, it’s not the presents. It’s all the little things — sweet, goofy, endearing — that make me feel so happy I chose this particular dude to be my partner in doing this whole life and love thing. So here, in no particular order, are the top 10 things that make me love spending the holidays with my husband:

1. He always wants to buy the loneliest Christmas tree on the lot.
Yes, we have a tiny house that is already way too full with three dogs, two kids, a lizard and the messes he and I are really good at making. But that’s not why he always tries to buy the littlest, saddest, most pathetic Christmas tree on the lot. It’s that he likes that tree. He likes the ones with the gaping holes on one side, or only about 10 total branches. This is part of my husband being one of the sweetest guys you’ll ever meet. It’s very Charlie Brown. I guess that makes me Snoopy, but I think that fits.

2. Late-night sales at the toy store make for really fun dates.
My husband loves to shop. More than I do, if we’re being honest. The last few years we’ve taken the opportunity of a big sale that starts at 9:00 p.m. at a big toy store near us to have my mom stay with our sleeping kids so we can go out alone together to be swarmed by other parents and grandparents frantically vying for the newest Lego or Littlest Pet Shop toy.

Sounds awful, I know, but that one day of the year we don’t mind. It’s exciting. We’re in it together. We WILL find that Playmobil pirate ship and we WILL prevail. Then we get tea lattes at Starbucks and drive home thinking about how fun Christmas morning will be.

3. Dressing up for holiday parties.
My daily attire consists of jeans and tee shirts with either boots or flip flops (depending on the time of year) and that pretty much never changes. But when it comes to going to our friends’ holiday parties, I love to shock people by wearing a fancy dress, heels and a face full of make-up.

Similarly, Ivan is a board shorts and tee shirt guy when he’s not at work, so when we show up and he’s in a suit and tie and I’m all fancy, it’s fun to surprise everyone together. And I like showing off my handsome guy.

4. Watching Arthur Christmas with the kids.
If you haven’t seen Arthur Christmas, an incredible animated feature about three generations of men in the Santa Claus family battling it out to become the most important Santa in history, you need to do yourself a favor and watch it immediately. It’s charming, fun, well-written, well-voiced and has awesome details like elves that deliver each present with high-tech gadgets and gears, like they’re out of Mission Impossible. In many ways, it’s a total guy movie, but I promise you’ll tear up (in a good way) at the end.

It’s one of those animated films that our kids have liked for a few years running, even as they get older, and we enjoy it as much as they do.

5. Watching Scrooged without the kids.
This late-80s horror movie-inspired holiday tale is awesome. This year I tried to watch it with the kids because they are getting older and I thought they could handle it.

They could not.

It is terrifying, but I forget that every year because it’s so heartwarming and really happy — and it’s about Christmas.

One thing Ivan and I have always had in common is our love for great TV and movies. So snuggling in bed and watching Scrooged is total bliss for us. Another good holiday movie to watch together is Love Actually.

6. Sneaking around to find the specific weird thing he wants but doesn’t know I know he wants.
That was a confusing sentence, but what I mean is this: There’s always something he wants, maybe he mentions it off-hand or tells his brother, and he doesn’t know I’m paying attention. Then I go on a hunt to find it. Last year I drove 40 miles to get him a pair of bike shoes for his mountain bike. This year… well, you’ll just have to stay tuned… but the hunt is what makes Christmas special.

7. Knowing that he’d rather be inside on the couch with me than getting drunk on New Year’s Eve.
I’m not judging what anyone else does on New Year’s Eve (as long as you’re not driving or being reckless), but I love keeping it mellow, and I’m so glad Ivan feels the same way. Dinner with friends who also have kids, watching the East Coast ball drop at 9:00 p.m., and then snuggling up on the couch alone after the kids go to bed to read or watch TV is my New Year’s dream.

8. Shooting down his intense need to buy more, more, more, and more presents for the kids.
On December 23rd, we assess what we’ve collected for the kids to make sure they’re balanced and every year Ivan declares that it’s just not enough and goes on a campaign to buy even more presents.

This can be annoying, but it’s part of who he is. He’s intensely generous as a person. Combine that with the fact that the man loves to shop, and you have a combustible situation of excess present-buying!

So every year, like clockwork, Ivan says, “I think we need more” and I say, “I think what we have is fine” and then he usually buys more, but not as many as he would have if left to his own devices.

9. Playing Santa after the kids go to bed on Christmas Eve.
What’s more special than sneaking around wrapping gifts, stuffing stockings and hanging candy canes on the tree? Nothing. It’s one of the greatest gifts that comes with being a parent, if you’re from a family that celebrates Christmas, and it doesn’t last forever. Kids are only little for a short window of time, so you know you’re part of something sacred and rare when it’s happening. On top of that, we always do a lot of cooking for Christmas Eve dinner, and there’s always a lot of good food to nibble at while we prepare.

10. Christmas Day hike or bike ride.
Our family tradition is to make everyone leave their chocolate comas and piles of toys and go for a Christmas Day hike or bike ride. The reason this makes me even more crazy about my husband is that not everyone would go along with these types of shenanigans on a major holiday, but this is the sort of thing we love. Our hot dates alone are usually on our mountain bikes or in the ocean, so it makes sense that on the best day of the year for our family, we’d all be outside.

It’s amazing how much you grow with someone you’re with for a long time. When we first met, our weird traditions and cultural histories collided. We didn’t know how much money to spend, things felt unbalanced, or one side of the family felt neglected. At times we both tried to appease one another and ended up resentful. Holidays can be really tough for couples, and we are no exception. But over time, with compromise and friendship, we’ve evolved a set of holiday traditions that feel uniquely “us” and that remind us how lucky we are to have one another.

Why You Should Have Sex With Your Husband Tonight

It took you two hours to get the kids to sleep.

There were glasses of water fetched, imaginary flies pretend swatted, three stories read and everyone was tucked in — begrudgingly. But not for long. Because then there was the crying and screaming (you) and the ultimatums (them). The bribes. Empty threats were made and finally, they collapsed — all their ploys exhausted, to rest up for another day of killing you slowly.

It’s kind of a suck job, this whole “being a mom” business, but this is your suck job and you may as well not complain. So you were just looking forward to an hour or two of wallowing in quiet self-pity and ice cream, perhaps curled up with a book or even an episode of The Bachelor.

You thud down the stairs in your too small pajama pants, your t-shirt has spatters of paint and reads “5K Fun Run 2006.” You can’t recall how you acquired this shirt but you sure as hell know you have never ran a 5k and if you had, it would not ever be classified, in your opinion, as something a person should do for fun.

As you traipse around the corner to the kitchen you think you hear the faint sound of the stereo playing in the family room. You grab the Ben and Jerry’s from the freezer, slam the door shut with your rear end and grab a spoon. You are sitting cross legged, contemplatively at the kitchen table, fitness magazine (fuck you, irony) spread out in front of you when you realize that there is music playing.

And that it is definitely coming from the family room, where, it seems, someone has turned off the overhead lights.

Hmmmm.

You can barely make out the flicker of candlelight from the shadows around the corner and you wondering if you should go and investigate (a seance?) when you hear the soft strains of melodic sex oozing from the record player.

Sade.

Your spoon stops in mid air.

Oh no. Think. Think. Think.

You consider a retreat back upstairs, a fake sleep at the table. You wish for narcolepsy, amnesia. Anything.

But it is too late. He is already sauntering around the corner, wearing only his jeans and white undershirt.

He is holding two wine glasses.

He has spotted you and he is smiling.

“Well helloooo beautiful.”

You want to turn around and see if perhaps there is someone behind you to which he is actually speaking. But then he winks. At you.

And he speaks again, reaching out for your hand and peering at you in what you imagine he imagines to be seductive allure.

He gestures with his hands up and down his middle-aged, dad-sized frame.

“Are you up for… this ?”

Shit.

***************

It’s a struggle that must go back to the dawn of time.

Perhaps even back to those prehistoric cave dwelling couples in the Stone Age. She gathered the berries and hauled water and nursed Neanderthal Junior all day long. Neanderthal Man was busy hunting bison with blunt sticks.

He should have been exhausted. She was exhausted. But as soon as the baby was sleeping in his stone bassinet, here came her husband — hunching and smoldering, grunting the modern equivalent of “let’s get it on.”

All she wanted was to sit quietly, maybe bone up on some of the cave wall hieroglyphics. But her Neanderthal husband had a different plan. He wanted to bone her.

What’s a Neanderthal wife to do?

What’s any wife to do?

What will YOU do?

I know this is novel, but brace yourself.

Why not go for it?

Before you even begin (put your hand down) I know you have a million reasons why not. I’ll list a few here:

  • You’re tired. Perpetually tired.
  • You haven’t showered since yesterday (or in the case of Neanderthal Woman, since never).
  • You just put on your GOOD yoga pants.
  • He just WINKED at you.
  • You need to read this fitness magazine and eat ice cream.
  • The lights are on.

So many more.

But let’s agree to let the Why Not’s rest for awhile.

You can always say no.

Don’t you say no a hell of a lot?

You are practiced in saying no.

No means no and should always be respected.

Yes, yes. Always yes to all of the above.

But let’s just take it down a notch there and explore what might happen, if this time (brace yourself) you said yes.

1) You would burn calories.

According to Men’s Health, the average man burns 100 calories and the average woman burns 69 (hee hee) calories during the typical roll in the hay. Okay, so maybe you aren’t burning as much as if, say, you were sprinting a (not at all fun) Fun Run, but still far more than you would burn shoveling in the Ben and Jerry’s.

2) You would be happier.

Making whoopee makes you giddy, psychologically. WebMD cites a study that surveyed the sexual activity and happiness of 16,000 men and women and found that sex “enters so strongly (and) positively in happiness equations” that they estimate increasing intercourse from once a month to once a week is equivalent to the amount of happiness generated by getting an additional $ 50,000 in income for the average American.” You might not be trading in the minivan for the car of your dreams this year, but you can still take the Mustang out for a ride if you know what I mean.

3) You would be healthier.

Listen, girl. You’re a mess. You have no time for anything healthy — sure, you wolf down your daughter’s Flintstones vitamins and you floss the week before you go to the dentist. But a little “gland to gland combat” is just about as good as any other move toward a healthier you.

It has been proven to boost your libido, make you sleep more soundly, reduce your risk of heart attack and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.

Unless your pelvic floor muscles are already super. Which, in that case, disqualifies you from even reading this blog post. I almost called this post “Need kegels, will travel.”

Ahem. Moving on.

4) You will feel more connected.

There’s probably a lot of science to back this one up, but let’s keep this more simple. Every woman I know says that while she might have a million reasons she didn’t have the energy to start having sex, she’s usually glad she did it anyway. Because afterward, you just… like each other. Of course you always love each other. Even when you say no. Even when he isn’t interested (isn’t he always interested?).

Even when you are too tired. And even when you haven’t had sex since before the baby, unless you count that one time at his parents house when you told him you would do it if you didn’t have to take off any articles of clothing and didn’t have to move at all.

And he was all like, sure, that’s cool.

But when you do decide to ignore the Why Not’s, when you do decide to just go for it, you realize that more than loving him, you actually like him.

And you like having sex with him.

That guy, he’s pretty okay, isn’t he? He doesn’t care that your pelvic floor is as weak as a busted up hammock. He thinks you’re beautiful. And he wants to do the horizontal hokey pokey RIGHT NOW.

And he wants only you.

Bad.

Sometimes you just can’t muster the energy and sometimes you will say no. And that’s okay. Take the guilt and throw it out with the empty Ben and Jerry’s pint. But take the long list of Why Not’s and toss those out too. The whole thing needs to be redetermined and reconsidered.

If you wait for that small interval in which you have had enough sleep and feel enough energy and have enough time and you really really really want to… well, that time might never come.

And then you might never come.

So I’m here to say this: sometimes it’s okay to fake it until you make it.

(Except don’t fake IT. Make him work for that shit.)

——————————————————-

You take the wine glasses from his hand and tell him that if he promises to never, ever wink again you will give it a go. And he wants to dance with you.

And dancing leads to kissing and kissing leads to the stairs and the stairs lead to your bedroom.

And the bedroom leads to bow-chick-bow-bow.

And once you are in your bed — your legs layered in post coital bliss, you are still tired but you are glad.

He touches his nose to your nose and smiles so closely you remind yourself to tell him tomorrow to trim his nostril hair.

But boy, is he handsome. And he looks at you so happily.

You are glad you ignored the Why Not’s this time.

You are just about to drift off into sleep when the bedroom door is flung open. The tell tale sound of child sized footstep approach the bed and you brace yourself for what comes next.

“Mama. I’m FIRSTY,” says your son as he pokes you in the neck.

You don’t even move or open your eyes as you speak.

“Honey?” You say sweetly to your husband.

“Are you up for… this?”

And then you drift quietly into a long and restful slumber.

Hey, Ladies, This Conservative Blogger Wants You To Stop ‘Destroying Your Husband’

A piece about how to stop destroying your husband and your marriage has elicited plenty of attention this week, with some slamming the advice as completely antiquated. Although author Katelyn Carmen told The Huffington Post that she can acknowledge a difference in opinion when it comes to what makes a marriage work, she’s sticking to hers.

Carmen’s article — which appeared on FamilyShare.com, a conservative website dedicated to helping men and women strengthen their marriages and families — lists “five destructive things” she says will ultimately ruin a woman’s relationship with her husband and offers tips for keeping the man happy. According to her advice, a woman should live within her spouse’s means, never complain, always put her husband first and use sex as a “sacred tool” and never withhold it.

On the subject of never complaining, she writes:

Wives, show sincere appreciation and respect to your husband by carefully following a budget and making the most of what you have. Be wise about your finances.

Constantly complaining about not having enough to fulfill your lavish desires or racking up astronomical amounts of debt on your credit card is a poor way of saying “thank you” to a faithful spouse who works hard every day to provide for the family.

And when it comes to sex, Carmen doesn’t really care if you’re in the mood.

It is a great blessing to be wanted and needed by a loving, romantic husband who wants to share something so beautiful and important with you — and you only. Even though you might not always be in the mood, it’s worth it to give in (when you can) and spend that time bonding.

The article went viral, and while some praised her tips on Facebook, others weren’t exactly thrilled with what she had to say.

“It turns out that while I’ve spent all these years trying to make us happy, I should have been worried about making him happy. Why? I don’t know. Because penis, I guess,” Meredith Bland wrote on Mommyish.

And Hemavathy DM Suppiah mockingly rephrased Carmen’s words on MyLaunchpad. On Carmen’s point about sex, she writes:

Men, susceptible creatures that they are, need lots and lots of physical affection. They cannot live without it and if you neglect your wifely duties, then he’s just going to go elsewhere, and you’ll be a bad, bad wife. Seriously, they’ll give you a trophy.

Never mind if you don’t feel well, or you’re tired, or just not in the mood, your husband’s needs surmount yours (refer to point no. 3) and it is your duty to give him all the pleasure he wants and needs.

When asked about the backlash, Carmen told The Huffington Post: “Some of the strongest emotions we experience as humans come from our relationships with the people we love. Strengthening our marriages and families should be two topics that people think about every day, but people don’t always agree on how that should be done.”

“The advice I gave in this article was influenced by a variety of sources,” she went on to say, “including my college studies and research — I minored in marriage and family studies — family therapists who contribute content to the site, my own marriage and advice from couples I know who’ve have had long, successful marriages.”

Though the beginning of Carmen’s FamilyShare.com article noted that her tips can also apply to men, she told HuffPost that an article will be coming out next week with advice specifically for men.

“Marriage is a partnership. My advice is just as important and relevant to men –- and we publish advice for both men and women on the site,” she said. “As spouses, we should be willing to help one another as equal partners as we honor and serve one another. That, in turn, will bring the greatest likelihood of a successful marriage.”

Romancing The Screen: Why My Husband And I Write Our #Lovestory

Some people fall in love at first sight. For me, it was first tweet. This wasn’t terribly surprising to my friends, who had been listening to tales of my internet flirtations since I was a pre-teen, but how my husband and I met continues to be something newcomers to our lives gawk over.

“Wait, you can find love on Twitter?” they’d ask. “I thought that was just for reading news.”

When I first saw Thomas, he was simply a tiny avatar on my screen. My mouse hovered over his gorgeous eyes, piercing through the pixels, causing my fingers to hesitate so I could linger another second longer. Most say eyes are the windows to the soul, though his Twitter stream is what really wooed me. He was insightful, witty and a little raw. Even though there was a computer screen and a few hundred miles between us, I felt like I got him, this virtual stranger. After retweeting his words to catch his digital eye, I Direct Messaged to ask if he wanted to meet for a drink the next time I was in his city, visiting my family (yes, turns out we grew up two towns away from each other).

A month later, we started dating exclusively, sneaking mid-week Amtrak trips into our schedules, giggling at each other over the tops of our laptops when it was time to work and ending our short time together with slow dance parties for two in my studio apartment. But we often returned to Twitter to type more characters in our love story.

@eFlirtExpert: Four years later and I still swoon a little when @URwingman pulls out my chair.

In a world where technology is often how we disconnect with reality, Thomas pulls out his iPhone from his pocket and I from my purse, and we use tech to share experiences, saving memorable moments in our relationship scrapbook in the cloud. Checking into Foursquare from our Central Park picnic blanket or snapping an Instagram of our date at Fenway wasn’t the result of a habit, something that got in the way of our romance. Instead, this is part of our courtship, a shared experience that brought us closer together because of the emotion behind the seemingly meaningless action of tapping ‘Send.’

This year, we wed with 4,000 paper Twitter birds flying overhead. An infographic save-the-date announced the timeline of our relationship, from our first kiss in Boston (@minibar) to our Christmas Eve engagement.

On that snowy day in December when Thomas proposed, we celebrated with our families, called our closest friends and gushed to them over the phone, but stayed silent on social media for a few weeks. We wanted to make sure all the important people in our lives heard from us personally before finding out on Facebook, and it seemed a milestone worthy of a bigger internet proclamation. So we each wrote a blog post from our own perspectives about the engagement and posted at the same moment, reading each reply to our individual tales of love while we snuggled together, in love.

Having others join in our #lovestory inspired us to invite them to continue to digitally share in our moments on our big day. As the lights twinkled above, guests were welcomed with personalized place cards that resembled Twitter bios, table numbers listed as hashtags from our courtship, like #skypedate. At most weddings today, couples encourage guests to unplug, but our nuptials were live-tweeted by our friends and family, streams of congratulations and photos of dance-floor Instagrams filling the iPad screens around the room, which served as the centerpieces in our magical Twitter forest.

wedding

Many say that meeting through technology isn’t romantic, that social media all too often becomes a barrier in a relationship. But with small adjustments to your approach, the internet can become a magical and dreamy place for a relationship to unfold. For my husband and I, it’s where our #happilyeveredwards will always continue to exist.

5 Ways To Tell If Your Husband Is Lying

Lie detector expert and former federal law enforcement investigator Janine Driver tells us the subtle ways to spot deception.

As told to Kate Rockwood

1. He Sounds a Little Funny

Liars are sometimes called “fast talkers,” but the speed of their speech varies as much as an honest person’s within a conversation. Yet liars will alter their speech rates within a single sentence. Typically a liar might begin to speak slowly, because he’s trying to figure out his lie—but once it comes into his head, he tries to spit it out as fast as possible.

Pace isn’t the only speech pattern that can trip up a deceiver. Research has shown that a person’s vocal tone will waiver from baseline in up to 95 percent of all deceptive statements. If your partner’s baritone is on the rise, you may be facing a fib.

2. He Slips a Verbal Clue

Remembering the truth about what happened Saturday and the story he wants you to believe is a big mental burden. Many liars will buckle under the strain and make a verbal faux pas, like start-stop sentences (“There are many that I didn’t—I hardly had any contact with her.”), using past and present tenses in the same story or repeating your question rather than answering it.

Even if he doesn’t stumble, his sentences could signal deception: Studies have shown that liars tend to drop pronouns from their speech, as a way to verbally distance themselves from the lie. “I got up this morning, I called my mother, went to work, grabbed a bite with Jim.” The person used two pronouns up front and then dropped them afterward—why? There may be more to his story than he’s letting on.

3. His Face Flashes Contempt

Nearly 50 years ago, a researcher discovered that all humans share seven microexpressions—universal ways that emotions are hard-wired to flash across our faces. Whether you’re male or female, black or white, young or old, if you’re surprised, you make the same fleeting expression. These microexpressions are impossible to fake—which makes spotting one the closest thing we have to mindreading.

Contempt—a feeling of moral superiority and disrespect—is one of the most dangerous microexpressions for a relationship: Contempt shows up as a half-smile smirk, with only one side of the mouth raised. It signals, “I’ve justified my lie. I’m getting away with it. You’re a fool.” Researchers can see contempt on chronic cheaters who think they’re too smart to get caught.

4. His Body Is Trying to Run and Hide

Unless someone is incredibly savvy in body language, you can tell where he wants to be in a conversation. People align their belly buttons with the objects of their interest. If he started the conversation with his navel pointed straight at you, and now his body is twisted toward the door, he is aching to leave—that could indicate a hot spot for deception.

When a liar is faced with questions he doesn’t want to answer, he may unwittingly cover his eyes, mouth or entire face with his hand, arm or a pair of sunglasses in a subconscious attempt to disappear. Pinocchios may start to squint, as if trying to block you from seeing the truth. Just be sure to put body-blocking behavior in perspective—your husband’s baseball cap pulled down low isn’t a red flag if he wears it every day.

5. He Makes You Feel Off-Balance

Practiced liars are uniquely able to distort reality and make us feel like the floor is shifting underneath us, that something odd is afoot, but we just can’t put our finger on it. He may spout false information with such conviction that it makes you start to question your own recollections. This particular type of manipulation is called “gaslighting.” Standard gaslighter lines include, “I never said that—stop making things up,” “How come you are always accusing me of horrible things?” and “What is wrong with you? You are so paranoid.” If you get to the end of a conversation and wonder, “Hey, wait a second, what just happened?”—remember that as a generally trusting person, you are a great gauge of dishonesty. Give yourself permission to follow those whiffs of suspicion and to investigate further.

Kelly Clarkson Felt ‘Pathetically Alone’ Before Meeting Husband Brandon Blackstock

In a new interview, Kelly Clarkson admits she was a bit lonely before she met her husband, Brandon Blackstock.

“I was single for almost seven years,” Clarkson tells Parade magazine of her love life prior to falling for Blackstock. “Every Christmas, it was like, ‘Seriously, I’m still pathetically alone? Awesome. I’m still telling people I’m okay with it? I’m not.’”

The 31-year-old said she only had three boyfriends in her life until last year, when she decided to give it a shot with Blackstock after meeting him at the 2012 Super Bowl. The two connected through her manager and his father, Narvel Blackstock. In February, following their December engagement, the “American Idol” star told Cosmopolitan, “I’ve never been truly loved like I am right now.”

Clarkson and Blackstock married in an intimate ceremony in Tenn., on Oct. 20 at Blackberry Farms after scrapping plans for a big to-do.

“I bawled like a baby,” she tells Parade of their wedding day. “We both wrote our own vows, and it was hard to get through them, but I did it … Brandon was like, ‘The Notebook ain’t got nothin’ on me — come on!’ And he took me out [on the lake] in a rowboat. It was very sweet. The whole thing was perfect.”

Soon, baby will make three. The singer announced she is pregnant with her first child on Twitter Tuesday (Nov. 19). Blackstock already has two children from a previous marriage.

“Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can’t wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!” she admits to Parade about the pregnancy. “I’ve never been Gisele Bündchen, so ain’t nobody expectin’ that! I like to set a [low] standard so people don’t expect a lot.”

Read Clarkson’s full interview in Parade, due out Sunday.
