Most happily married people will admit that, from time to time, they'll yearn for a bit of alone time--perhaps an evening of peaceful sleep, without their partner's snoring and sheet hoarding--but, overall, they couldn't imagine spending long stretches of time without their spouse at their side. And yet Claire and David Burke of the U.K., who have been together for 11 years and married for 2 of those years, claim that living apart has been the very reason for their continued bliss. Though they have a 6-year-old son together, the Burkes have never lived together over the course of their relationship--and they have no intention of changing that arrangement, believing the time apart makes their interactions feel "more special."
It's no secret that on average Americans don't really get a lot of vacation days. That coupled with the fact that some bosses make us feel as if we need to eat, sleep and live in our cubicles and devote all our time to the company so we're consumed with guilt if we just need a day to ourselves. It's a sick trend and one that's slowly affecting our personal lives. In a new book titled New Slow City: Living Simply in the World's Fastest City, writer Bill Powers explains about the latest plans amongst super busy newly weds: unimoons.

Loud, headboard-breaking sex can be incredibly liberating. But apparently, it can also land you in jail. Just ask Caroline Cartwright. The Brit is so loud in the sack, her neighbors have called the police on her more than thirty times. And when that didn't work, they had her arrested. But what do ya know, being cuffed did nothing to dampen Caroline's penchant for loud sex. In fact, it's only fueled her sexual creativity. Muahaha!
