How should the bra fit?
"If you don't look perky and proportionate, you're not wearing the right size. The best way to guarantee a proper fit is to get sized by a professional. Then think of a bra as a seesaw: the lower it sits on your back, the more lift you'll have in front. If you need a lot of support, adjust the straps so it rides low, and vice versa. Also, a brand-new bra will relax with wear, so it should be taut when you clasp it in the loosest position. Remember that bras are a lot like shoes-they're not comfortable until they're broken in."

The Queen of Swords card reversed suggests that putting up a wall may have served its purpose, but it might be time to let go of the false security that could be interfering in your love life. What was once a defense could now be reinforcing feelings of abandonment, irrational thinking or self-deception. It may take more will and courage to try again than to remain the long-suffering martyr. When you find you are tired of being right but alone, you can change your mind and find resolution or healing beginning with an honest acknowledgement of the situation, along with responsible and direct communication. Grieve for your losses and accept that love isn't perfect. An underlying belief that perfection can exist is what creates such disappointed expectations in the first place.

Married people fight, and some fight more than others. Casey and I used to fight a lot. Our second year of marriage was a disaster in the fighting department. It seemed like we were fighting with each other the majority of the time. It made that year pretty taxing on us and I think it took several years to get over that second year. Over time, the number of fights we had keep shrinking until we only fought once or twice per week. Sometimes our fights were about nothing at all, but they would get pretty intense. But after we rededicated ourselves to our marriage back in 2009, our fights have dwindled to maybe a couple per month, but when we do fight it's almost always over the same things.

For some reason, celebrities like to taunt the public by keeping tight-lipped about their trueloves. They say things like, "I keep my private life private." Boring! Maybe they're just afraid of the dreaded Love Gush Curse: Got her name tattooed on you? You're gonna break up. Jump up and down on a couch on TV professing your love? Yup, you're gonna be single soon. But not all romantic admissions have to be a one-way ticket to Splitsville. To wit, here are six love declarations from happy, healthy as-yet-still-together lovebirds. - Charlie Fish for HowAboutWe

Betabeat is reporting a new, alarming wedding trend: couples at weddings are banning the use of cellphones so their special day can be all about them.
"Many couples are using passive-aggressive signage to suggest their guests put the phones away. Others, like Diva Extraordinaire Sean Parker, take things a step further and ask their guests to physically separate themselves from their phones and leave them at the door, which is actually just a cruel and unusual way of trying to control other people."

Now, on the one hand, I get the appeal. As someone who still doesn't have a smartphone, I find it unbelievably annoying when you're sitting with someone, having a nice dinner, and instead of talking to you they're checking their Facebook. On the other hand, this is a wedding, not a prison. The attention will be on you whether you let people use their phones or not, I promise!

Eric Ray Davidson So you're in love and considering moving in with your boyfriend. Before you do that, remember that moving in is a big step. Most couples do it thinking it means you're in a committed relationship, but a recent study actually showed that nearly 52 percent of men and 39 percent of women who moved in together said they weren't secure about their relationships. Here are some signs that you need to push that idea back a little.Read More »from 5 Signs You're Not Ready to Move in with Your Boyfriend

1. You've been dating less than one year
Rule of thumb. Because you see every side of a person when you live with them, you want to make sure you've been with them long enough to prepare for what is yet to come. Getting to know every aspect of a person in a matter of months can be overwhelming.

My wife was talking to me across the table in the buffet joint that we had come to for lunch.
"A little guy or a little baby girl! I can't believe we will have a tiny new person around." She was exhilarated, her eyes twinkling with the hours-old knowledge that we had done it.
Monica was pregnant, two plastic tests with a little blue plus sign on them were the proof, and we were both staring at each other in minor disbelief, all grinning and twitchy and blown away.

I smiled. "Yeah, I know!" I mumbled through a mouth full of spring roll. Then, because I am me, I added quietly. "I just can't believe it happened so fast."
It was a time to celebrate, no doubt about it. We were both on the lucky end of things, what with finding out that Monica was going to have our third child. It was something that we had discussed in detail for a long time and now here we were!

Relationships and Texting
In a technology-filled world, the temptation to read your man's Facebook messages or snoop through his texts his overwhelming. But are you in the right to do so? By Diana Pearl
When Emily Gold* logged onto her husband's email with dread pooling in stomach, she was hoping for the best. Instead, she was met with a rude awakening: clear cut evidence of her husband's affair scattered throughout his emails. Love notes, song lyrics, photos of the two of them together, but that wasn't all. The worst was a pro/con list, written by her husband, on whether or not he should leave her. "It was the worst thing I have ever seen with my eyes," Gold said.
She's not alone: according to a 2011 study, 41-percent of women have snooped through their man's phone or emails. Modern technology offers a whole new variety of ways to spy on your partner. Looking through drawers and checking for lipstick on the collar is a thing of the past.

Some brides stress over finding the perfect centerpiece. This bride just wanted to walk down the aisle.
Seven years ago, Stevie Beale, then 17, was in a horrific car crash that left her paralyzed from the waist down.
Her back was broken, her spinal cord severed. The Toledo, Ohio, teen lost all feeling in her legs. Her best friend died in the crash.
In the first months following the crash, she worried that her life was over.
"I thought I was doomed to my parents' house, to never have a boyfriend or never get married," she tells Today. "I thought I was going to sit at home and rot away."
With the help of intensive physical therapy, Beale began to dream again.

And this past Saturday, Beale, now 24, kept a promise she made to herself during rehab: she walked down the aisle on her wedding day.
