The Justice card suggests that if you stick to your principles, you can make discriminating, objective choices that can help you balance your expectations for a relationship with the reality of your obligations. Be honest in your own estimation of your position so that you can accept the outcome, pay the price or reevaluate your expectations or convictions.

We never would have put the two together, but that can be said about some of the oldest married couples, too. The sweetness of the lavender is made that much more charming by the strong, pungent hue of gold, making it a match made in color-scheme heaven. We imagine the perfect setting for this color combo to be on a quiet farm with lush greenery and an old wooden fence, just as the sun sets, with white folding chairs and the crisp end-of-summer air blowing in the breeze. The countryside feel of fresh lavender comes alive with the bold, glimmering gold, and we've got a round-up of some of the easiest ways to incorporate this duo, ready for you to check out in our slideshow.

When Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with Princess Diana's stunning diamond-and-sapphire engagement ring, we had a feeling that colored stone engagement rings were going to make a comeback in a big way.

Two and a half years later, the proof is in the sticky toffee pudding. As we scrutinized the left-hand ring fingers of some of our favorite celebrities to narrow down our favorite rings (it was a tough task!), we noticed the uptick in engagement rings with bold-hued and non-diamond center stones. And with the giant sapphire ring Glee star Matthew Morrison recently gave to fiancé Renee Puente, the trend is really on!
We love the idea of a non-traditional colored engagement ring. Not only do these make a strong personal style statement, certain colors and stones carry significance that make a proposal that much more meaningful.

The "Love Somebody" singer has found the one! Maroon 5 frontman and "The Voice" coach Levine, 34, proposed to girlfriend Behati Prinsloo, 24, a Victoria's Secret Angel, over the weekend.

First spotted together at a friend's wedding in Hawaii last June, the pair split briefly earlier this year before rekindling their romance. Last month, during an interview on Oprah's Next Chapter, Levine hinted that he had marriage on the mind:
"I'm a fan of marriage. People think that I keep pooh-poohing marriage, but I love it," he said. "I want to probably be married at some point. I don't feel pressured to get married. I think that when it's the time, it's going to be obvious, and I'm going to do it, and I'm going to really enjoy it."
We can't argue with that logic! A source shared to Us Weekly, "He realized he really does love her and she was the one."

6 Reasons You Should Ask Him OutBy Marla Pachter for HowAboutWeRead More »from 6 Reasons You Should Ask Him Out
There are still a lot of ladies out there who believe it is, well, unladylike to ask out a man. Why is this still a thing? We can be strong and career-driven, but we still have to wait around and hope a man asks us out in order to go on a date? That's just crazy talk. If you've ever wanted to ask out a guy, or you ever do in the future, here are six reasons you should go for it.

1. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
So it's a little scary. So you're afraid of rejection. And yes, getting rejected might make you a little sad. But in the end, getting rejected will just make you realize that it's not a big deal. You lived through it, time to move on and ask out some more guys!
2. Because you want to.
Unfortunately we can't always get what we want. But you'll never know unless you try. You should always go after the things you want, because they might not realize

1. Dating don'ts: Showing up shirtless. Showing up in an animal mascot suit. Showing up in earnest.
2. Don't ever, EVER, let your Dad touch your date more than you've touched your date.
3. Similarly: If you ever want to have sex again, do NOT, under any circumstances, get a nasal adjustment on national television.
4. No need to throw away a perfectly good ring for sentimental reasons: eBay exists for a reason.
5. It's officially inevitable: women always fall for the wrong men and let the right ones go.
Get ready to roll your eyes at the lame lines that guys whip out when they don't feel like using protection
By Kelly Thore, Women's Health
When Is It Okay to Go Without a Condom?In this edition of disturbing male confessions, more than 80 percent of guys admit to having used at least one tactic to avoid using condoms during sex, according to a new survey published in the Journal of Sex Research. And even worse, men said they try three and a half different kinds of tactics over the course of their hookup history, on average. Definitely not OK.
When Is It Okay to Go Without a Condom?
For the study, researchers from the University of Washington polled more than 313 men between the ages of 21 and 30 on their sexual behaviors, including their histories with condom use and/or resistance to using condoms. "We wanted to uncover how common condom-resistance behaviors are among men and what kinds of coercive tactics are most frequently employed to persuade their partners," says study author Kelly Cue Davis, PhD,

There are superstitions about everything - unlucky dates to the color of the cat that just walked past you! There is no real easy way to trace back where these ideas came from. There are everyday superstitions and then there are wedding superstitions, just to make that day a little more stressful for you, if you believe in that sort of thing. I don't really believe in superstitions. I can't say I don't believe in any of them because if you're with me outside and we pass a penny on the street, I will stop to pick it up. However, when I got married, I wasn't overly concerned with the bad omen's that people talk about when it comes to your wedding day. There are a lot of common superstitions out there though when it comes to weddings and most of them I happen to think are a little on the ridiculous side, especially if you're stressing yourself to the max worrying about them.

How do you know if he's into you or into something else that you offer (ie: your body, money, dinner, connections, or even your laundry machine)? Here are 10 signs to look out for. Of course, just because your guy exhibits one of these signs doesn't mean he's using you. But sometimes we have our blinders on when it comes to love and we refuse to see the red flags no matter how obvious or numerous they are...
Real or Faking It?1. Listen To Your Gut
Yes that little voice in your head that is giving you warnings, that's your natural instincts. Your subconscious might be picking up subtle signs that your mind and heart are too excited to notice.
2. He Doesn't Make Much Of An Effort
He sees you when it's convenient for him (like when you go over to his house or meet him out with his friends). But he doesn't put much effort into making the connection.
3. He Doesn't Pay

Why do those two (or three) words wreak so much havoc in relationships? Why are they so hard to say? And why is it that when so many people say them, they get it wrong? People are getting it wrong because you can't just apologize any old way and expect that your mate will receive it. In your apology, you must be able to demonstrate that you truly regret the pain that you have caused and that you want to work towards resolution. So the apology is not only about saying the words, but it is about your demeanor - the way in which you say the words, and your actions that follow. Every relationship has its troubles. But if you address your issues in the right way, you have an opportunity to strengthen your bond.
