Sometimes when you are in a relationship, one of you is in the mood for love and the other one is just not interested. Usually, it's women who get the rap for turning down the amorous advances of their significant others, but that is not always the case. There are times when a dude is just not in the mood. Just ask Krystle Harrison, who allegedly viciously bit her boyfriend's penis because he refused to have sex with her.Continue Reading >
Why do all guys become huge babies when they get sick?!?! Ugh, it's so ANNOYING! It's the one time in my relationship when I want to scream: "HEY buddy--I'm NOT your mom!"
Apparently, this is an across the board occurence. After an incredibly informal survey of my co-workers and girlfriends, I've determined that upwards of 99 percent of men just totally lose their shit when they get sick and revert to acting like helpless little boys.
Um, this is not alright guys. We rely on you to be your manly selves. What if I need to open a jar or hang a painting?
Most commonly stubborn, moody, and nit-picky brides-to-be are named "Bridezillas," but did you know that the grooms-to-be are now becoming ... "Groomzillas"? Researchers have discovered that men are becoming more involved in their wedding planning and this could be a good thing for couples!
The survey conducted by Austin Reed wedding hire-wear showed that more than half of men had the final say in the date of the wedding and an even bigger percentage choose the venue. Other tasks grooms tackled were hiring the band, choosing suits for the best men, and choosing the wedding car. And we can't lie, we're sort of loving this change-of-roles trend!Continue Reading >
If there is one major thing couples just can't seem to see eye to eye on every now and then, it's sex. Men want more of it, women want it too--except for us quality trends to trump quantity. Even though there's more to marriage than sex, it's still an important component to a relationship and couples should, no MUST, make time for it.
But if your husband wants it at 11 P.M and you expect it first thing in the morning, how do you make it work? Don't worry, there really is an answer to this ever ending battle.Continue Reading >
It's no mystery that men and women resolve relationship problems differently and often times this causes EVEN more arguments between them. Now a new study reveals that the stereotypes about the way we handle conflict are true! The report showed that men just wish women wanted to have more sex, whereas women want them to be more willing to talk about problems or opt for counseling.
Imagine! Hours of counselling avoided and money saved just by knowing this one tidbit.Continue Reading >
In general, everything is smooth sailing during the beginning of a relationship. Your man calls all the time, showers you with compliments, and buys you flowers without you asking. But what happens when all these lovely gestures stop, after a while, marriage, or kids? It may put some undue stress on the relationship--yikes!
Often, women don't respond well if it seems that their man doesn't appreciate or value them. This can lead to the demise of a relationship when it could have been salvaged with a few tips that men could have followed. So listen up, men. Here are the seven things that women REALLY want for Valentine's Day (though chocolates and jewelry are still appreciated!):Continue Reading >
Most couples are currently planning their Valentine's Day celebrations which can be stressful and time consuming. If you're like me though, you'd like your Valentine's Day to have a special twist to it besides the usual chocolates and roses. Being a mom makes it tougher to celebrate the most romantic day of the year if the kids are always around.
But what if we told you we found a solution which allows you to be kid-free (trip to Abuela's house!) and to have a creative and fun Valentine's Day? If you're skeptical then read on to find out our tips!Continue Reading >
You know how you're always nagging your husband to help you out with chores, but he never does them? Well, you might want to back off if you love your sex life! A new study published in the journal of American Sociological Review shows that married couples who split chores in a traditional way get frisky MORE often.
The study revealed that more sex is involved because taking on traditional gender role chores reinforces certain types of sexual behavior. How does that work exactly? Read on to find out!Continue Reading >
Want to know the secret to a successful your marriage? Well, some people believe that fighting and masturbation are the keys to a great union (yes, seriously) but now it turns out that what you REALLY need to be a good partner to your man is more time in the bedroom--and I mean more time spent sleeping! That's right. Maybe you would have guessed that a spicier sex life is actually the way to a happy union (at least, that's what my assumption was!) but it's actually getting more ZzzZzz's that makes you a good mate.Continue Reading >
I've never understood why people think that if a couple fights it means that they don't get along or they don't love each other. If you think about it, it's impossible that two people who were raised completely different, with values and customs they don't necessarily share and who have lived completely different lives up until the point they decide to marry will get along great and will never have conflicts!
The important thing to note is that there are healthy ways of fighting, and that not all spats have to be World War III. Check out some tips for fighting right, below:Continue Reading >
