Roughly 27 months ago, I separated from my wife of 10 years; early last year, our divorce was finalized. In works of fiction, newly emancipated men inevitably spiral into eyebrow-raising excess to evade grief and (perhaps) eventually fishtail toward self-understanding. It turns out that in real life, divorce is both…
So here’s the thing about romantic relationships: They’re work.
The tough thing about writing a definitive guide to anniversaries is that every couple should, quite rightly, handle them differently.
This year, Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday (FYI: It's tomorrow), making it awfully convenient for those of you planning a romantic weekend getaway and a three-day headache for the rest of us. Let's face it: This holiday isn't the greatest no matter your relationship status. (The media/retail onslaught of…
A favorite game of betrothed and married folks, mostly ladies, mostly at bridal showers or in the pages of women's magazines, revolves around the question of discovering the secret to a happy marriage.
Reddit user throwwwwaway29 has a husband, and her husband is fed up. He is so fed up that this morning he sent her an email that contained the above spreadsheet, detailing all the times she has denied him sex over the course of the last month or so.
This is fun. David Rudich brought his girlfriend, who is a huge Ravens fan, to the team's practice facility so that he could propose to her. Right after he popped the question, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh coincidentally came upon the happy couple.
The dental hygienist was up to her elbows in my mouth when she started telling me about the upcoming wedding of her son.
I've never understood why men don't wear an engagement ring. Actually, scratch that: I understand why they didn't wear them in the past, when marriage was but the economic chess move of a lady, any lady from her Father to Some Other Dude. But Things Have Changed ™ so it's high time the lady-only engagement ring goes…
It's been a great year for Cutch. His Pirates put together their first winning season in 20 years, he won the NL MVP award, and now he just got engaged on national TV.
John Grant is a Bears fan. His wife is a Packers fan. The two made a friendly bet before last night's game. Whoever's team won, they would get to use a stun gun on the other. It's a very NFC North love story.
As far as I know, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are not San Francisco Giants fans, nor do they have any meaningful ties to AT&T or the city of San Francisco. And yet, Kanye decided to rent out the Giants' stadium in order to propose to Kim. A live orchestra was involved, and the jumbotron read "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!"…
I get a lot of dumb pushback at my job (itinerant lady-yelling), including but not limited to frivolous contrarianism, unhinged vitriol, and angry unsolicited advice (so angry!). But the shit that gets to me the most intensely and consistently is also the simplest. Just, "Nu-uh." Nu-uh, silly girl, that's not real.…

Are you near New York and thinking of proposing to your lover? Yay for you! But how and where to pop the question? Your cup runneth over with charming options: a favorite restaurant, somewhere with a stunning view, the afternoon drive-time show on WFAN.
Yes, you have heard the name Monica Wright before, because you have seen Love and Basketball and now it's dawning on you that Kevin Durant is marrying a WNBA player who shares her name with the lead character from a movie about love and basketball and oh my god isn't that so fucking adorable?
Russell Westbrook did a pretty cool thing on Friday when he helped a total stranger pull off a marriage proposal. A few weeks ago, Charlie Bright reached out to Westbrook on Facebook and asked the Thunder point guard if he wouldn't mind helping him pop the question to his girlfriend. Westbrook—likely tired of spending…
Ryan and Janna Willmaser got married last weekend. Ryan and Janna are big Seahawks fans. This is, I suppose, the natural outcome of things: lots of neon green, and wedding vows that included swearing to love the Seahawks forever and ever, til death do you part.
This one's for everyone who laughed about Kris Humphries's and Kim Kardashian's sham marriage. Sure, she filed for divorce after 72 days. But because of their drawn-out legal battle, which finally ended today, they were husband and wife for one year, eight months, and nine days. That's 618 days of true love.
