The Good Wife’s Jess Weixler Announces She’s Expecting a Baby with Husband Hamish Brocklebank

There’s a baby on the way for Jess Weixler and her husband Hamish Brocklebank!

On Monday, the 37-year-old actress announced she’s expecting her first child in a very relatable — and funny — way.

“Just had some pizza ❤🌱(6 months),” Weixler captioned an Instagram post, joking that her baby bump is really just a food baby.

In the shot, The Good Wife star, dressed in all black, can be seen cradling her pregnant belly in a field full of apple trees.

A rep for Weixler did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Weixler and Brocklebank, a British businessman, got married in 2015 during a stunning ceremony on the beach.

For the nuptials, Weixler wore an off-white, Grecian-style tulle gown and wore her hair in waves.

Rather than going the traditional route, Brocklebank wore a coral colored suit with a white shirt and a black tie.

Both opted to go barefoot for the sandy festivities.

“A lot of love on that beach,” Weixler captioned a photo from their wedding day.

Who Is Brad Falchuk? Get to Know Gwyneth Paltrow’s New Husband

After Gwyneth Paltrow married Brad Falchuk in the Hamptons on Saturday following four years of dating, many are curious to know more about the 47-year-old writer-producer.

The couple went public with their romance in April 2015 at Robert Downey Jr.’s 50th birthday bash, after a year of flying under the radar with their relationship.

RELATED: Brad Falchuk Pens Sweet Birthday Note to Gwyneth Paltrow: ‘You Keep Getting Better Every Year’

A source close to the actress previously told PEOPLE, “She’s crazy about Brad.” Though the source said that she’s “cautious about marriage” and “very happy with how things are,” it wasn’t “out of the question” for the couple to walk down the aisle in the future.

Following their weekend nuptials, get to know Paltrow’s new husband.

He’s worked with Ryan Murphy for years 

Falchuk began his television career as a writer, working on a few short-lived series before joining the season 1 writing staff of Murphy’s FX series Nip/Tuck in 2003. From there, the two formed a strong bond — teaming up to create Glee (2009), Scream Queens (2015) and the Connie Britton/Angela Bassett-led 9-1-1 for Fox, as well as the horror anthology series American Horror Story (2011) for FX.

He and Murphy also serve as executive producers on the true crime anthology series FX’s American Crime Story, which premiered in 2016 with a season devoted to the O.J. Simpson trial and will open 2018 with a season devoted to the Gianni Versace murder.

Most recently, they collaborated on FX’s transgender drama Pose.

He met Paltrow on the set of Glee

It was on Glee where Falchuk and Paltrow would meet, as she joined the show in 2010 for a season 2 guest spot to play lackadaisical substitute teacher Holly Holliday. The appearance went so well that Paltrow would reprise her role as Holliday three more times, including the show’s 100th episode in 2014.

All in all, she covered 10 tracks on the show — from Joan Jett’s “Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)” and Prince’s “Kiss” to Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide.” She later performed her most popular cover, Cee-Lo Green’s “Forget You,”  live with Green in the 2011 Grammy Awards.

He’s a father of two

Falchuk has two children, Brody and Isabella, from his 10-year marriage to Suzanne Bukinik, which ended in a divorce filing in March 2013. He often shares photos of the two on social media — and has taken Isabella with him as his date to the Emmys in the past.

So far there haven’t been any shots of Brody and Isabella with Paltrow’s two kids with the rocker — daughter Apple, 14, and son Moses, 12 — whom she shares with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

Speaking of sharing about loved ones on social media, Falchuk sure hasn’t shied away from expressing his love for Paltrow on Instagram.

In honor of her 46th birthday on Thursday, he penned a gushing tribute to his soon-to-be-wife.

“It’s this timeless beauty’s birthday today. She was born with endless gifts – big blue eyes, a brain and heart overflowing with curiosity, generosity and possibility and those heartbreakingly long legs that go on and on – but she never rests on any of them.”

For Paltrow’s 44th birthday, he praised her as “the most beautiful woman of all time. “We are all so lucky that she came into the world (but no one is luckier than me). Happy Birthday, Love,” he captioned on Instagram.

Sarah Jessica Parker Steps Out in Red Ball Gown for Date Night with Husband Matthew Broderick

Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick had an elegant night out on Thursday.

The couple, who have been married for over 20 years, stepped out together to attend the New York City Ballet 2018 Fall Fashion Gala, held at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City.

Parker, 53, looked fashionable as ever in a bright red ball gown with a plunging neckline and a billowing skirt, tucked up in the front to show off her matching sparkling red pumps. The gown also featured a unique sleeve design featuring oversized puff sleeves with black sheer panels that led to a red ruffle wrist detail.

Accessorizing the look, the Sex and the City actress wore her blonde locks in a simple ponytail tied with a black ribbon. She kept her jewelry minimal, too, wearing clean circular diamond earrings and a bare neckline.

Broderick, 56, was all smiles as he stood by her side. The Ferris Bueller’s Day Off star kept it standard in a classic black tuxedo with a white shirt and black bow tie.

Parker has long lent her support to the New York City Ballet.

She chaired this year’s gala, alongside Mazdack Rassi and Zanna Roberts Rassi, Kelly Ripa, and Lizzie Tisch.

Choreography and couture took center stage at the event. The onstage program featured three world premiere ballets by guest choreographers Kyle Abraham, Matthew Neenan and Gianna Reisen. Dancers were costumed in designs from renowned fashion designers Giles Deacon, Gareth Pugh and Alberta Ferretti.

Guests — who walked the star-studded red carpet, mingled at the elegant cocktail reception, took in the performance and attended the black-tie Supper Ball — included Andy Cohen, Gwendoline Christie and Parker’s former SATC costar Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Back in May, Parker brought 9-year-old twin daughters Tabitha and Marion to the New York City Ballet’s Spring Gala.

The mother-daughter trio looked close as can be as they walked the red carpet, holding hands while posing for photographers.

Parker wore a cream-colored knee-length dress with sheer sleeves and a Peter Pan collar and pulled her long locks up in a ballet-inspired bun. She paired the look with silver sparkly pumps.

Her twins each had their own floral dresses — one in white and the other in blue. They coordinated with matching bags, rose-patterned shoes and headbands that held back their hair.

RELATED: Sarah Jessica Parker on the Secret to a Happy Marriage to Matthew Broderick After 20 Years

Meanwhile, Parker and Broderick — who are also parents to son James Wilkie, 15 — have stayed strong in their relationship for over two decades thanks to a willingness to adjust and grow together.

Your needs are shifting,” she told PEOPLE in February. “You and your partner are going to change. It seems so silly, but I think you’re very lucky if you like the person. I still just really like him. I’m sure I annoy him and he annoys me, but I literally learn about him every day. I’m like, ‘You’re doing what? You’re reading what?’”

“I think marriage has a lot of vitality,” she added. “If you’re fortunate, it’s like this dazzling organism.”

And when it comes to raising their children, Parker said she and Broderick make a point to “have conversations” as a family. “Our lives are unpredictable, and we’re not always here when we want to be,” she admitted. “We can’t always do drop-off and pick-up. But I’m proud that our children talk to us in the way they do. I’m glad they’re curious people.”

Holly Madison Splits from Husband Pasquale Rotella After Almost 5 Years of Marriage: Sources

Holly Madison and Pasquale Rotella are going their separate ways almost five years after their fairytale wedding, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE.

An insider says the pair split over the summer, with another source revealing that Madison is now based in Los Angeles and “doing okay.”

A rep for Madison did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The former Playboy model and Electric Daisy Carnival founder began dating in 2011, welcoming daughter Rainbow Aurora in March 2013.

The couple tied the knot in October 2013 in an extravagant Disneyland ceremony — they even rode in Cinderella’s glass pumpkin coach — and welcomed a second child, son Forest Leonardo Antonio, in August 2016.

Madison, 38, met Rotella, 44, after leaving the Playboy Mansion — and boyfriend Hugh Hefner, who died in September 2017 at the age of 91 — in 2008, moving to Las Vegas to pursue a career as a burlesque dancer.

“I wondered, ‘Is this because I spent my 20s at the Mansion?’ I worried I missed my chance because I was there the whole time,” she explained.  “I got to a point where I was trying to adjust my mindset and think, ‘Okay, am I going to be happy without that picture of marriage and family?’ The hardest part was just feeling really alone.”

She added of finding romance with Rotella, “I love looking back and seeing the silver lining in the clouds. Everything happens for a reason.”

Luann de Lesseps Says She’s 6 Months Sober as She Reunites with First Husband and Kids

Luann de Lesseps says she’s six months sober.

The Real Housewives of New York City star took to Instagram to document the milestone day, which she spent in Sag Harbor, New York, with her first husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps and their two kids, Noel and Victoria.

“Greatest reunion ever!” she captioned a photo of her and the Count. “Wonderful to spend the weekend with the kids and The Count. Also counting my blessings! Celebrating 6 months of sobriety! Happy 4th of July, everyone! @noeldelesseps @victoriadelesseps #onedayatatime #lovemyfamily #grateful #rhony #countess.”

De Lesseps, 53, was arrested last Christmas Eve in Palm Beach, Florida, and charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant. (She’s since pleaded not guilty and rejected a plea deal in February.)

She later apologized for the incident, admitting that being back in Palm Beach for the first time since she tied the knot with Tom D’Agostino Jr. before divorcing him seventh months later had “brought up long-buried emotions.”

She entered a treatment facility and began focusing on her personal wellbeing.

Speaking to PEOPLE in April, the Bravo star opened up about how she explained the arrest to her kids.

“I told my children I did something that I am not proud of, and I asked them to forgive me,” she said. “They were like, ‘We don’t care about that. We don’t care about what people think. We know who you are, and we love you and we’re here.’ They were great.”

Along with her kids, de Lesseps said she could count on her fellow Housewives to be there for her — regardless of the drama always being stirred up on screen.

“The Housewives can be really bitchy sometimes, but when push comes to shove and you’re down and you need to be picked up, the ladies were right there for me,” she said.

Despite what the incident cost her, de Lesseps said she found a silver lining and hasn’t resumed drinking.

“Unless I was humiliated publicly, I don’t think I would have done anything,” she said. “This was a warning. It was meant to happen so that I could take a step back and look at myself in a different way. I’m grateful to the universe for making me change my life.”

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

Clara Harris, the Texas Dentist Who Ran Over Cheating Husband Repeatedly, Scheduled for May Prison Release

Clara Harris, the former Houston dentist who rammed and killed her husband with her car because he was cheating on her, is scheduled to be released from prison next month, PEOPLE confirms.

Officials announced last November that Harris was granted parole after serving 15 years of a 20-year murder sentence. Court records confirm that she is scheduled for release on May 11. She will be on parole until February of 2023, the records show.

Described by her parole attorney as a “model inmate,” Harris, 50, helps translate books into braille for the blind, ABC News reports.

In July 2002, the mother-of-two became infamous when she hit her 44-year-old husband David with her silver Mercedes-Benz and ran over him three times before stopping directly on top of his body.

Harris had tracked her husband of 10 years and his mistress, Gail Bridges, to the Nassau Bay Hilton. She ran him over outside the hotel.

David’s daughter from a previous marriage, Lindsey Nicole Harris, who was in the car at the time of the murder, testified against her stepmother at trial.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

In court proceedings, it was revealed that David had admitted to his affair to his wife even before Harris received a telephone tip that he and Bridges would be meeting that night at the hotel. On the day of David’s death, Harris hired the private investigative firm, Blue Moon Investigations, to follow her husband.

A Blue Moon surveillance crew captured David’s murder on videotape, which was used as evidence against Harris.

“She loved her husband. She never would have wanted him to die,” Harris’s lawyer, Kevin Stouwie, told local Texas news outlet KTRK in November. “Her goal was to keep her marriage intact. Her goal was to save her marriage.”

In 2003, however, assistant prosecutor Mia Magness argued that Harris committed a crime and deserved to be held accountable.

“Bottom line,” Magness said, “that’s murder.”

Kenya Moore’s Husband Marc Daly Makes His Real Housewives of Atlanta Debut

Is that you, Marcy Daly?

After a season of avoiding the Real Housewives of Atlanta cameras, Mr. Kenya Moore finally made his reality TV debut Sunday night, swinging by the premiere party for her domestic violence PSA.

It was a surprise for Moore, who had told her cast mates that Daly wouldn’t make the event because he was in New York City, where he lives and runs a restaurant.

“He’s working and he was just like, ‘I can’t, but I send you my love,’ ” she told pals Shereé Whitfield and Porsha Williams.

“He cannot get on a plane by himself, girl. I need to book his ticket, I need to pick out his clothes!” she added. “Guess what, he’s married now, so guess who he wants to take care of him?”

But while Moore was introducing the PSA in her speech, Daly snuck in.

“I just want to thank you girls,” Moore said in her speech, before seeing Daly. “I want to also thank my loving husband, my knight in shining armor.”

She then ran to Daly’s side, giving him a hug and a kiss. “Hi baby! You look so handsome,” she said.

“He fooled me!” Moore confessed. “Clearly he knows how to book his own travel. I think he wanted to make a grand entrance and that’s what he did.”

Daly was proud of his wife. “It was amazing,” he told her of her PSA. “Great job, baby, Great job.”

He then got to meet Moore’s RHOA costars, including BFF Cynthia Bailey — who quickly hugged Daly and told him, “I’m glad my girl is smiling and happy. Now I see why! … This is the highlight of the party!”

“I’m so glad to meet Marc,” Bailey told audiences. “He’s kind of sexy. Kenya got a fine husband. Now that the Marc Daly mystery is solved, the haters can just shut up.”

Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker came over, too, just as Daly was asked if the two had decided whether they would be living in New York City or Atlanta. “It’s the million dollar question,” Daly said.

“Well, Todd was a real New Yorker. He moved to Atlanta,” Burruss said.

“The southern women will make you do some crazy things,” joked Tucker.

While Daly was there for Moore, he appeared to be a little uncomfortable on camera. He even told Moore when asked if he’s like to meet the ladies, “I would love to see my wife also!”

Perhaps that’s because all of the Atlanta Housewives haven’t always been very supportive of Daly in the past, questioning whether Moore’s marriage is real and even throwing her a fake wedding with a cardboard groom.

They weren’t all supportive when he was there, either.

“Well he has definitely improved since being cardboard in San Francisco,” Leakes joked. “I’m happy for Kenya that Marc is here. She’s been wanting him to come around and I’m not really sure why he hadn’t come around. I guess it is official, honey!”

Asked if they appeared to be truly in love, Leakes said, “Kenya appears to be truly in love.”

Added Whitfield: “I don’t know if he’s her real husband, but he is real.”

She was a little more kind when she met Daly at first, telling him, “It’s great to finally meet you.” But then she quickly poked fun of his nose ring, shading him in her confessional: “I haven’t really seen a guy with a nose ring since Tupac. I don’t know, it was different.”

RELATED VIDEO: Kenya Moore Shares Why She Kept Her New Husband’s Identity Secret, Says She Wants Kids ‘Right Away’ 

This is part of the reason Moore wanted to keep Daly away from the RHOA cameras.

“He didn’t sign up for this world, I did,” Moore told PEOPLE exclusively in June. “Every time someone has been associated with me, they attack that person – immediately going after them, trying to bring them down and saying crazy things. They tear people apart. And so for , he was like, ‘This is about me and you — it’s not about me or you.’ He just wanted it to be about our pure love and not about him.”

“That’s why I fell in love with him,” Moore continued. “For him, it’s about being my protector and my best friend  — not being someone that stands next to me, but someone who supports me and is okay with being behind me sometimes. He doesn’t want my money, he doesn’t want my fame, he doesn’t want my success — he just wants my heart, and he has it.”

No matter how shady the women were, Moore was happy Daly was by her side. She even left the date early to “spend some time with him before he goes back..”

“Quality time? That’s the best time,” Daly said.

Who Is Emily Ratajkowski’s Husband? Five Things to Know About Sebastian Bear-McClard

Emily Ratajkowski is a married woman.

In a surprise ceremony, the 26-year-old model tied the knot to actor and producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, with whom she only started cozying up in the past few weeks, at City Hall in N.Y.C.

“I got married today,” Ratajowski wrote on a selfie with her new husband as part of a series of pics she posted right after the quick ceremony. In the snap, Bear-McClard kisses the model’s cheek as the couple holds hands. While Ratajkowski went without a massive diamond engagement ring (the couple both are wearing a simple gold band), her hubby flashed two other rings on his fingers that read “EM” and “RATA.”

So who is Bear-McClard? Here are five things to know about Ratajkowski’s husband.

1. He’s an actor and producer

Bear-McClard most recently produced the 2017 film Good Time, starring Robert Pattinson. He’s also worked on several indie films including Heaven Knows What (2014), and Still Life (2006).

In 2014, Joshua and Ben Safdie, a New York-based writer/producer/director duo, launched Elara Pictures with Bear-McClard and producer Oscar Boyson as partners.

Bear-McClard has been nominated for multiple Gotham Independent Film Awards, including Best Feature Film for Good Time. He was also nominated for an Independent Spirit Award in 2014 for Heaven Knows What.

2. He comes from a family of artists

Bear-McClard’s dad is an artist who moved to New York after graduating from the San Fransisco Art Institute.

“Michael was a teen rebel in the 60’s and decided he was an artist and graduated with honors from San Fransisco Art Institute and moved to New York,” Peter McClard, Bear-McClard’s uncle, tells PEOPLE. “He is an amazing artist. Some time in the 70’s he met Liza Bear and though they never married, the Bohemians that they were, they had Sebastian.”

Michael McClard currently has art on display at the Baahng Gallery in New York.

Because of his parents’ involvement in the NYC art scene, Bear-McClard grew up going to galleries and industry parties.

“Sebastian was a great, totally New York-bred kid and spent his youth being dragged to cool art events, parties and surrounded by the hippest of the hip New York art scene in the 80s and 90s.”

3. He is friends with social media star Fat Jewish

Fat Jewish (real name Josh Ostrovsky) served as a witness at Bear-McClard’s wedding ceremony, but the two go way back.

“In High School or shortly thereafter he met some friends and they had a rap group called Team Facelift and Sebastian was their official videographer,” says Peter McClard. “They were hilarious and talented and their frontman was the Fat Jew.”

The social media star also appears in Bear-McClard’s Facebook default photo.

4. His relationship with Ratajkowski has been low-key

Rumors began swirling that they were an item after the producer and model were spotted packing on the PDA on Valentine’s Day.

Though photos of them only surfaced a few weeks ago, they’ve known each other longer, according to sources.

The two had yet to go public until their wedding announcement.

5. He has his family’s support

“We’re proud of him for settling down with Emily and what he’s done and about to do in his film career,” says Peter McClard. “He’s a good, caring guy and a great listener and people love working with him because he gets things done. Apparently, Emily loves him too.”

RHONY Star Jill Zarin’s Husband Bobby Dies After Battle with Cancer

Jill Zarin‘s husband Bobby has died from cancer.

Jill announced the news in a family statement on her official website, revealing that Bobby died on Saturday surrounded by his family.

“With the heaviest of hearts, we are devastated to share the news that our beloved Bobby Zarin passed away peacefully today surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer,” the family said in a statement. “There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you, everyone for all your love, and support during this difficult time.”

His stepdaughter Aly Shapiro remembered him in a touching Instagram post also on Saturday, sharing a gallery of photos of the two over the years.

“We ❤ Bobby…” she wrote. “Thank you for giving me such a wonderful family and being the most incredible step-Dad anyone could ever ask for. I don’t remember a time without you, and you will not be forgotten. Every shot of patron, every time we listen to Hotel California, every vroom of a Ferrari you will be right there with us. You fought with dignity and courage, surrounded by all of us with love and respect till the very end. You can rest In peace now, we love you so much.”

She also provided service details, which will be held Monday, Jan. 15 at 10 a.m. at Riverside Memorial in New York City.

Bobby was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009 and went on to have his thyroid removed as well as underwent radioactive iodine treatment.

“The radioactive iodine usually kills off whatever undetectable cancer cells are left in your body after surgery,” he previously told PEOPLE. “We thought it was cured – and it usually is in about 93 percent of cases. But I wasn’t able to absorb the radioactive iodine. So it came back.”

The cancer wound up returning and spread to his lungs. In Fall 2016, Jill revealed to PEOPLE that he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent Gamma Knife Radiosurgery at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

Although the Real Housewives of New York City alum remained hopeful throughout Bobby’s treatment, she said “his cancer took an unexpected turn” over the summer. In July, Bobby was admitted to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, where he recovered from a procedure.

“He is not going down without a fight,” Jill told PEOPLE exclusively. “We’re hoping for a miracle,” she said about the love of her life.

RELATED VIDEO: Jill Zarin’s Husband Bobby Hospitalized with Cancer Complications

After he was admitted to the hospital in July, Jill hadn’t left his side and did everything she could to make him comfortable.

“I’m in shock,” she said. “I’m in physical shock. I’ve lost 8 lbs. already. He was doing well for a very, very long time. Then the cancer came back in his brain last fall and since then, it’s been one thing after another.”

As Bobby’s treatment continued, Jill remained dedicated to raising money for thyroid cancer research for him and others who have the deadly disease through her Annual Luxury Luncheon, which was opened to the public for the first time last year.

Last January, the couple celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary. “Happy 16th wedding Anniversary to the most wonderful husband, father and friend in the world. I love you with all my ❤❤❤ we will get thru this and be together forever,” Jill wrote about her husband. 

And in celebration of his birthday last February, Jill posted multiple photos of Bobby on Instagram with loving captions. “I’m so happy and at peace these days with the love of my life living La Vida Boca!” she wrote.

“He is the most loving and caring person I have ever known besides my father. Sometimes life just isn’t fair,” she previously told PEOPLE about Bobby. “But we have such a great love story. He is the love of my life and I will do everything in my power to heal and care for him.”

Bobby ran Zarin Fabrics, which was opened by his father, Harry Zarin, in 1936. The New York native is survived by Jill, his three children — Jonathan, David and Jennifer Zarin — and stepdaughter, Ally.

PEOPLE Explains: Texas Mom Murdered Husband and 2 Sons Before Killing Herself at Luxury Resort

On Monday morning, an unthinkable crime occurred in Galveston, Texas.

According to police, a 37-year-old mother fatally shot her husband and their two sons before killing herself. The violence transpired inside a room at the San Luis Hotel on Galveston Island — an upscale spa and resort on the sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

The tragedy remains under investigation, as many unanswered questions remain. Here are five things you need to know about the case.

1. The Family Checked Into the Resort Hours Before the Killings

The suspected killer, Flor De Maria Pineda Canas, along with her 39-year-old husband, Mauricio Canas, and their two boys, 10-year-old Mauricio Jr. and 5-year-old David, had checked into the San Luis Hotel mere hours before other guests called 911 after hearing a quick succession of gunshots, according to a statement from the Galveston Police Department.

Responding officers arrived and were directed to the eighth floor. They found the room’s door dead-bolted, and could could hear “faint moaning coming from inside the suspected room and began to make entry,” the statement explains.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

After breaching the room, police found the husband and two boys “lying in bed, all with gunshot wounds.” Investigators believe they were killed as they slept, and that moments later, Flor took her own life. Police found a handgun next to her lifeless body.

2. The Killer Was Religious, May Have Suffered From Depression

Those who knew her claim that Flor Canas was earnestly religious and had been a member of Iglesia Cristo Viene in their hometown of Baytown, Texas, for more than seven years. The family, ABC 13 reports, attended mass together the Sunday morning before their deaths.

Most of the members are in shock because this is a person that was always looking for ways to help the community,” Leonila Olivares, an ordained minister, told ABC 13. “She had a servant heart.”

Talk amongst the congregation, Olivares explained, is that Flor was not suffering from emotional distress. “They’re thinking that it was because of her depression,” she said.

3. One Boy in Kindergarten, the Other in 5th Grade

According to reports, the two boys were both students at the Victoria Walker Elementary School in Baytown, a suburb of Houston. Mauricio Jr. was in the fifth grade, and David was in kindergarten.

A spokeswoman for the school, Beth Dombrowa, issued a statement to the Houston Chronicle on Monday.

“The tragic circumstances surrounding these students’ deaths are almost too much to bear,” it reads. “A student death can have a ripple effect on a school community and, because of this and out of concern for the students’ classmates and the campus faculty, we will have additional counseling services at the school. We are grieving for the loss of young life and its infinite possibilities and we pray for the family, friends and students most affected by this tragedy.”

4. Motive For The Killings Still Unclear

Detectives still do not know what drove Canas to kill her family at around 4:30 a.m., but they’re positive she was the killer.

“Forensic data collected at the scene indicates that the female is believed to be the shooter at this time, and is believed to have killed her two children and her husband before apparently taking her own life with a 9mm handgun found adjacent to her body,” the statement from Galveston Police explains.

• For more compelling true crime coverage, follow our Crime magazine on Flipboard.

Canas and one of her children “were unresponsive but still appeared to be alive” when officers arrived. All four were transported to a nearby hospital where they were pronounced dead.

5. Murder-Suicide Was Second Fatal Shooting Incident at Resort in Recent Months

Back in April, a security guard working at the San Luis Hotel was shot to death.

Phillip Molis, 23, was in the resort’s rear parking lot on April 9 when he noticed three suspicious men. According to ABC 13, Molis approached the men, who opened fire, hitting him several times.

Molis underwent complicated surgeries, but died a week later from his wounds, the station reports. Brandon Ledford, 19, has been charged with his murder and was detained in October.

Ledford has not entered a plea to the charge against him, and remains in police custody without bail. Information about whether he has retained an attorney was not immediately available.

Sheryl Sandberg, Who Lost Her Husband 2 Years Ago, Launches Initiative to Help Grieving Families During the Holidays

For many people coping with the diagnosis of a serious illness or the loss or separation of a loved one, facing the holiday season will be challenging—and they’ll need support from friends and family to help find joy in between their moments of grief.

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer and author of the popular book Lean In, knows this struggle all too well: Sandberg lost her husband and father to her two children, Dave Goldberg, in May 2015 after he died suddenly at age 47 while on vacation in Mexico. After experiencing the pain that comes from loss and learning of ways to respond to it, Sandberg teamed with psychologist Adam Grant to publish the book, Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy and its accompanying website to help those facing adversity in relation to a loved one. This is something especially important during the holiday season, Sandberg says.

“The holidays are reminders, and you really feel the absence of the person,” Sandberg, 48, tells PEOPLE. “Particularly if there’s a loss, the holidays are times when whatever challenges we face, our absences are felt so deeply, whether it’s been a week or decades.”

This magnification of grief is something that will be experienced by many households who will have empty seats at the dinner table or unopened gifts under the Christmas tree this year.

To help family and friends of the bereaved who may be unsure how to best lend their support during the holidays, Sandberg is launching the #OptionBThere initiative, where visitors can find a collection of advice and tips organized by themes including “just be there,” “say something,” “lend a hand” and “celebrate the good.” OptionB.Org community members have also submitted their own real-life experiences and detailed what worked for them during difficult holiday seasons.

“The number one thing I’ve learned, which is why we’re doing this, is that so often, we don’t address the hard things because we don’t know what to say,” Sandberg says, “so you don’t say anything.”

To relieve these often difficult and painful situations, #OptionBThere provides conversation starters to help friends and family feel comfortable sharing their feelings, and suggestions for feel-good games, “all feelings welcome” dinners, meaningful gift ideas and holiday cards to remind them that they’re loved. 

For those experiencing grief who are unsure of how to interact with other during family engagements and celebrations, #OptionBThere also has tips on how to ask loved ones for help, and a seven-step guide to creating a “holiday bill of rights” to allow themselves to approach the holidays under their own terms. These suggestions may help them to find a bit of happiness during difficult times.

“Let yourself feel what you feel. Try to think of moments of joy. Little things,” Sandberg says. “Sometimes we’re looking for happiness in big ways, and I think, if you’re facing a holiday, or even a regular day through your illness or pain, you can’t be happy all the time—don’t put that pressure on yourself.”

In the years after Goldberg’s passing, Sandberg took up the habit of writing down three moments of joy at the end of her day, which have helped her to appreciate everyday moments.

“It is a great irony of my life that I lost my husband, and I am more grateful,” she says. “I’m grateful that I was alive for Thanksgiving. I’m 48. That never would have occurred to me before.”

Sandberg stresses that one of the most important actions that friends and family of the bereaved can do is simply show up.

“Just do something. That’s really what #OptionBThere is all about,” she says. “When you show up with a meal, when you show up with a hug, when you show up with the funny story, or just the willingness to sit there and cry with the person, that’s incredibly powerful—helping ourselves see what is still good in our lives is a super important part of recovery, and when you show up for someone, you are creating a good moment.”

Joan Collins Slams Her Son’s Claim That Her Late Husband Anthony Newley Was a Pedophile

Joan Collins is refuting claims made by her son Sacha Newley that her ex-husband (and Sacha’s father) Anthony Newley was allegedly a pedophile.

Never in a million years would I have been married to somebody like that,” Collins, 84, told Good Morning Britain of the late actor and singer-songwriter, whom she was was married to from 1963 to 1970 and had two children (Sacha and daughter Tara Newley).

“Categorically, I can say that it is not true, that I never saw any of that kind of behavior from Anthony,” she added, explaining that the claims have been “very” stressful for her.

Sacha, 52, made the shocking allegations about Anthony in an interview with The Sunday Times published Nov. 26. “He was a paedophile,” Sasha said. “My father was drawn to youthfulness; he thought innocence was an aphrodisiac. That was his sexual proclivity and it’s a very dangerous, destructive thing.”

Now a painter preparing to release a memoir focused on growing up in Hollywood titled Unaccompanied Minor, Sasha went on to claim that he regularly witnessed sex as a child.  “It was Hollywood and all the people were beautiful and gorgeous, wafting in and out of parties. My father put sex front and center. He exposed me to all of that — it was absolutely inappropriate,” Sasha claimed.

One example Sasha gave to back up his claims was his Anthony’s 1969 X-rated musical film Can Heironymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness?, which starred Anthony as Heironymus Merkin — an internationally known singer who recounts his promiscuous relationships with adolescent Mercy Humppe (Playboy playmate Connie Kreski) in front of his wife and two toddlers (played by Collins, Sacha and Tara).

RELATED VIDEO: Why Anthony Rapp Revealed Kevin Spacey’s Alleged Sexual Advances: ‘I Wanted to Shine a Light’

“ a confession of pedophilia,” Sacha told The Times, comparing his father to director Roman Polanski and his alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl in 1977. “Mercy Humppe is the ‘perfect childlover’ — an underage girl. didn’t peg her age exactly, but it falls within the Polanski thing.”

The film was so damaging, Sacha claimed it lead to his parent’s messy divorce the following year. “My mother was destroyed by that film: it was the end of their marriage,” Sacha said. “My father was a great, flawed talent. He was a classic sex addict.”

On Good Morning Britain, Collins said that Sacha was off in his interpretation of his father, who died in 1999 at age 67 following a battle with cancer.

“I think that Sacha’s being extremely naive and not really knowing the meaning of that word because what Tony admittedly was, is he loved young women and young women of 17, 18, 19 years old,” she said, The Independent reported. “Not children by any means.”

“As far as I’m concerned this is absolutely untrue,” she added in a statement on Sunday, The Independent reported.

Collins’ daughter Tara, 54, also spoke out against Sacha’s claims.  “I was shocked by my brother’s comments,” she said in a statement, The Independent reported. “From my end, I don’t recognize the man he is describing. I had an incredibly close relationship with my father and am deeply upset by these false allegations.”

Glee Star Naya Rivera Arrested and Charged with Domestic Battery After Alleged Altercation with Husband Ryan Dorsey

Former Glee star Naya Rivera was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery after an alleged altercation with her husband Ryan Dorsey on Saturday night in Kanawha County, West Virginia, police confirm to PEOPLE.

In a video captured by local news station WSAZ (who was first to report the news), a soft-spoken Rivera is shown handcuffed and dressed down in a hoodie and dark pants while being arraigned. The outlet reports Rivera was released on a $ 1000 PR bond and picked up by her father-in-law.

A rep for Rivera did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The past year has been drama-filled for the star, who called off her divorce from Dorsey — with whom she shares 2-year-old son Josey — last month.

Dorsey, 34, and Rivera first dated in 2010 before going their separate ways while she starred on Glee. They later wed in July 2014, just three months after her engagement to rapper Big Sean ended.

In their statement about the divorce last November, the couple told PEOPLE, “After much consideration, we have made the decision to end our marriage. Our priority is and always will be our beautiful son that we share together. We will continue to be great co-parenting partners for him. We ask for respect and privacy for our family during this difficult time.”

Rivera briefly opened up about their reconciliation to PEOPLE last month, saying “It is what it is, but I’m glad that my family is together.”

Naya Rivera’s Ups and Downs with Husband Ryan Dorsey — in Her Own Words

Naya Rivera and Ryan Dorsey surprised fans in 2014 when they decided to tie the knot just three months after the Glee star broke off her engagement to Big Sean. But the marriage hasn’t been without its hiccups.

On Saturday night, Rivera was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery after an alleged altercation with Dorsey in Kanawha County, West Virginia, police confirmed to PEOPLE.

In a video captured by local news station WSAZ (who was first to report the news), a soft-spoken Rivera was shown handcuffed and dressed down in a hoodie and dark pants while being arraigned. The outlet reported Rivera was released on a $ 1,000 PR bond and picked up by her father-in-law.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The past year has been drama-filled for the star, who called off her divorce from Dorsey — with whom she shares 2-year-old son Josey — last month.

“It is what it is, but I’m glad that my family is together,” she told PEOPLE at the time, adding that it was “a personal decision.”

Rivera had filed for divorce two years after the couple wed in July 2014.

“After much consideration, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” the former couple told PEOPLE in a statement at the time. “Our priority is and always will be our beautiful son that we share together. We will continue to be great co-parenting partners for him. We ask for respect and privacy for our family during this difficult time.”

In 2014, Rivera was accused of “switching grooms” when rapper Big Sean called off his engagement to the actress just three months before her wedding to Dorsey. However, the actress had a long romantic history with Dorsey.

“To this day, I’ll be doing interviews and people will be, like, ‘Oh my God! Y’all were friends?’ ” Rivera previously said of the media portraying her relationship with Dorsey as solely platonic before their engagement. “I’m, like, ‘What are you talking about?’ ”

During her early years on Glee, Rivera and Dorsey dated briefly before ending things so she could focus more on her career. A few weeks after the split, Rivera found out she was pregnant with Dorsey’s child and decided to terminate the pregnancy without informing him.

“When I made that decision , I made it by myself, as I feel is the case for a lot of women, and I did not share it with Ryan at the time,” said Rivera, who chronicles her relationship with Dorsey in her memoir Sorry Not Sorry.

The two would remain distant until Dorsey reached out with his condolences after her split form Big Sean.

“By the time we sort of reconnected, I was like, gosh, there’s a reason why you keep coming back in my life and we keep coming back together,” she wrote.

Three short months later, the old friends-turned-lovers married on July 19, 2014 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in front of a small group of family members.

“We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife,” the couple previously told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for.”

A little over a year later, the two announced they were expecting a little one.

“Ryan and I feel so blessed and can’t wait to welcome the newest member of our family,” the actress, who originally posted a photo of a bun in the oven on Instagram, later wrote on her website.

Documenting her pregnancy journey on her PEOPLE.com blog, Rivera described the good, the bad, and the awkward stages of pregnancy – including her intimate moments with her hubby.

“Things like sex with my husband became a bit odd for me due to the fact that I was now limited to about two positions in order to not squash — as my husband puts it — ‘its roof’ or have the baby (my belly) staring him in the face,” she wrote. “I feel like men are constantly imagining their baby winking at them when they make love to their pregnant wives thus making sexy times more few and far between.”

In September 2015, the happy couple welcomed their first child together, son Josey Hollis Dorsey (who is now 1).

Rivera, who first revealed her abortion in an excerpt from her memoir to PEOPLE, stated that her husband’s reaction could not have been more understanding.

“He said, ‘In the short time that we dated, I wish that I could have done something to make you feel like you could have trusted me with that information because I would have loved to have been there with you,’ ” Rivera said. “I think it was the kindest, best thing that any man could have ever said in that situation,” she said during the interview. “It just made me love him that much more.”

“It was good to tell our story and put the truth out there,” Rivera said of sharing the couple’s story. “We’ve been married now two years and have a gorgeous son and it feels good to let everyone know what really happened.”

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.

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, softening what moves from a harsh indictment of China’s one-child law to a head-on critique of China’s corrupt system.

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.

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.” 

Watch the heartwarming video above.

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:

NEVER CHANGE.

Ask Your Husband To Describe Your Wedding Dress And Thank Us Later

Ask your husband to describe what you wore to work yesterday, and he’s bound to get some details wrong. But your wedding dress ― he’s likely to nail that, right? Nope.

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.

Watch the video above to see how it all goes down.

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

By Gracie X

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…




All Weddings

Girl's Best Friend - SuperJeweler.com

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.”
