Man: "Do you wanna get married?"
Woman: "Married?" [inner monologue] "There were so many things I was gonna do first. I was gonna hike the Appalachian Trail! And I still have to learn to play the drums. And I *still* need to finish my short film." [back to him] "OK. But we have a lot to get done first."
....oh, right. Because marriage renders you incapable of traveling and fulfilling your creative pursuits. Obviously.

Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce from her NBA superstar husband Kobe Bryant last week, saying that he had done something she couldn't forgive. That something is apparently a whole bunch of cheating, and here's the kicker: Vanessa found out because of her friends. The wives of other basketball players would hear about Kobe's affairs from their husbands, and instead of keeping a code of silence they banded together to tell Vanessa what was up.

The holidays can be a particularly rough time to be single. (In other breaking news, the sky is blue and grass is green.) But you will survive. Here are some tips to help get you through.
- The two most important items of clothing you can own as a single person during the holidays is a killer party outfit (preferably something dark, vampy and dramatic) and the softest, most comfortable, and possibly unflattering pair of pajamas you can find. This way, you can spend the holidays either as the hottest person in the room at a party, or swathed in comfortable material watching movies in bed. Win/win.

- Remember, the holidays don't have to be (that) stressful. Instead of focusing on the holiday gauntlet, try and use the days off as an opportunity to catch up on sleep and reading time.

We've all been hearing a lot about Kim Kardashian's marriage in the past few weeks, and sometimes it can be hard to feel any sympathy for her: after all, reports of how much money she made are pretty staggering, and surely someone who lives her life in front of the camera must, in some way, be asking for it?
The Hand Ryan Gosling Is Holding (Sadly, Not Yours) + More Celeb News
But a recent clip, put together by Jezebel.com from "Kim and Kourtney Take New York" shows that Kim may have been more innocent than cynics might realize.
The four-minute video shows the tension between newlyweds Kim and Kris start to bubble as the couple learns to live together for the first time.

"For a relationship to work well, the man has to love the woman just a little bit more" - so goes the old wives' tale. As archaic as this tidbit might seem in an era of equal partnerships and less rigid gender roles, the notion that relationships in which the man cares more deeply than the woman are more stable has persisted.
