The Internet sucks for many reasons, and stalking your ex is one. Google makes it too easy.
For solo single moms, watching an ex freely move on is hard. The father doesn't have to drop their child off at school or throw the ball at baseball. He doesn't have to worry about a fever at midnight, or deal with not being able to go on a date, because there's no babysitter tonight. Sick kid? Mom has to stay home from work-again. The parental responsibilities fall on mom and her personal life gets sidetracked-and that's OK because mom goes to bed with a clear head at night and wakes up to a beautiful child in the morning. She's supermom.

Although most corporate types would tell you it's a bad idea to mix romance and the workplace, the team on "The Office" never got that memo. As we say goodbye to the show, we also have to bid adieu to some of the most oddball relationships ever - particularly the love affair between Dwight and Angela ("Dwangela"). Though uptight office tattletale Angela and absurdist beet farmer Dwight finally made it work in the long run, they're not the only mismatched TV couple who made us laugh, smile, and wonder what in the heck those two saw in each other.

Prior to my first marriage my biggest fear was divorce. My life experiences resulted in me bringing some lessons learned into my next relationship, and some baggage, too. Fortunately, my husband loved me and my child so much that he was willing to help me carry some of the baggage. Over the past few years I have continued to work on me in an effort to be the best mother, wife and self I can be. Recently I read an article by Your Tango about the top mistakes couples make that could lead to divorce. I found it informative because most married people don't want to give much thought to the idea of divorce until their marriage is tested. Even so, sometimes increased self awareness can help us be more mindful of our interactions with and responses to our spouses and therefore be more inclined to seek help or support in the event an issue arises. Here are 7 mistakes, other than infidelity, couples make that can lead to divorce:

According to Jolie's op-ed in the New York Times, her doctors told her she had an estimated 87% chance of getting breast cancer, as well as a 50% risk of ovarian cancer. As such, rather than wait for the very likely event that she develop a tumor, she went ahead with the life-changing procedure.

The Judgment card reversed suggests that circumstances that may seem out of your control, but that may be connected to the past. Deep feelings of discontent may require you to make a choice to take action on blind faith or bail out. It may not be enough to simply be loving or charitable, hard working, smart or kind. You may need to be strong as well so that you can turn experiences into wisdom and healing that can guide, liberate or offer relief to those who look up to you.

Lindsay Lohan/Avril Lavigne We all have those people we simply don't care for, and guess what? Celebrities do too. The difference between us and famous folks, though, is that we tend to confront our enemies in private, not on the red carpet or in a crowded club. Of course, when stars do face off in public, there's nothing more entertaining (especially since there always seems to be a gossip columnist or camera nearby.)

Some vendors include gratuities in their fees, but many will leave the amount up to you -- and the level of service they provide can influence what you give them. Tips can add up quickly, costing you a few thousand dollars. Most tips should be handed out the day of the wedding, so it's wise to assign the job to a friend or family member. A follow-up thank-you note is often a valued tip in itself, as your word can be a recommendation for the vendor.

Consider handing your officiant $100, a thoughtful present, or, if you're having a religious service, making a donation to their house of worship in the celebrant's name.
The Catering Staff
If the gratuity isn't already included, plan on tipping all staff members, including the catering or banquet manager, waiters, bartenders, chefs, and other essential workers who help serve guests. You can calculate the tip as a percentage of the cost of your total catering bill. Figure on paying about 15 to 20 percent of the

Your meds are turning you off
Among the biggest culprits are pills taken for fibromyalgia pain and antidepressants, says Stephanie Faubion, director of the Mayo Women's Health Clinic in Rochester, MN. "Antidepressants can cause difficulty with arousal and orgasm - it's like putting a big wet blanket over sexuality." Medications with hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and different types of birth control can also be heavy on the body, says Dr. Sadie Allison, founder of TickleKitty.com and author of Ride 'Em Cowgirl! But, don't toss that bottle of pills just yet - and definitely don't do it on your own. Ask your doctor if there's an alternative, to reassess your need for that medication, or if she can decrease the dosage.

His Belt Size
Over the years, his waistline has stealthily expanded (whose hasn't?), but you've never let it get between you and a great sex life. The surprise: His extra weight may actually have tipped the balance in your favor. Fat men last longer--so finds a study published in The International Journal of Impotence Research showing that men with a higher body mass could make love for more than seven minutes on average, versus less than two for their fitter and slimmer peers. Body fat may protect against premature ejaculation because it contains high levels of the sex hormone estradiol, which slows down a man's ability to ejaculate. (Note: There's a sweet spot--levels that are too high may lead to erectile dysfunction, a condition more common in obese men.)
