Let me guess. When you and your hubby plan a date night, the big decision is if you’re having dinner before the movie or after, right? Sounds like you and your man are in a bit of a dating rut. There are tons of ways to bust a dating slump. One of my favorites is to go on dates that make you feel young. So think back to what kinds of dates you went on as a teen and recreate them. If you’re having trouble remembering, I picked some of my favorite young’un dates to inspire you.

So you got a raise and now you out-earn your man. Or maybe your boyfriend just got laid off, so you’re pulling in all the bacon now. Or you’ve decided that it makes the most financial sense for your family to have a stay-at-home daddy. Whatever the case, women out-earning their men is a reality for more and more couples. While it’s becoming more common, that doesn’t mean that it’s the norm. It’s actually going against gender norms in our society. And going against the grain like that can be a strain on your relationship. So here’s how to deal when you’re more successful than your man.
Your man. He’s smart. He’s handsome. He makes that disgusting clicking sound when he chews. Am I right? Or maybe it’s that he pretends he’s allergic to chives, even though he just doesn’t like them. Or never picks up his socks from the floor. Or can’t ever remember that you only like 1 percent milk. Whatever the case, I’m sure that your boo is perfect except for when he’s annoying the hell out of you. How do I know? Because that’s exactly what love is — loving someone even when you kind of hate him. Here are the reasons you love your lug of a man even though he got you tickets to visit his parents for your birthday last year. It’s quite simple really.
Your kids, they’re amazing. They’re adorable. They’re the lights of your life. Kids bring so much joy into parents’ lives, but it’s a fact that it’s tough to keep relationship sparks smoldering post kids. Here’s three super simple strategies to keep the spark alive. Put down the Desitin or take a break from school play costume sewing and give these pointers a quick read. Your husband and your kids will be glad you did.
Even though I’m a matchmaker, it doesn’t mean that I’m an all-knowing guru. There’s no one right way to do everything. Not at all! I’m a girl looking for answers when it comes to relationships just like you. I’ve read just as many self-help books, Googled “reasons why I’m single” just as many times, and watched just as many episodes of Oprah as you have. And even now that I’m in a happy relationship, I’m still looking for new lessons in love and I love when they come in fun packages like the latest blockbuster. I got to sneak a peek at this August’s comedy, Hope Springs. This flick is filled with love lessons so grab your girls and go see it on August 8th. Here’s why:
We did it! We finally tied the knot five years and a Sin Halo later. Our wedding was spectacular: We could not have asked for anything better! The ceremony was held at The Carlton NYC in Millesime Restaurant and Lounge. We took photos in Central Park, and then went right back to Millesime for the reception. Our crazy Tim Burton style cake by Cake Alchemy was delicious and our little boy danced the night away with all of our guests. He was Destin’s best man. It was beyond magical… but not quite as magical as the night that followed! *wink* The next day, we took flight for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for a honeymoon at the Grand Velas that we will never forget. When we arrived, we were greeted, handed a cigar, a Bird of Paradise and were then whisked off to the resort. The sun was shining, it was hot as Hades’ backyard, but we were married and in love and that was all that mattered.
