  • Do Blondes Cheat More?

    Is there a link between hair color and infidelity?Recently, dating and social media site Cheaterville released a survey of its users on the topic of hair color and cheating. The website is a place where you can publicly call out cheating partners - their slogan is "Don't be the last to know" - and see names of others who have cheated. According to their results, hair color seems to play a role in how likely you are to cheat.

    Cheaterville's survey found that blonde women are more likely to cheat than brunettes, whereas male cheaters are more likely to have brown hair. In fact, 43 percent of female cheaters were blonde (and blondes are, what, 5 percent of the population?), 23 percent were brunette and 11 percent had black hair. As for the men, 40 percent of the unfaithful had brown hair, 23 percent had black hair, 20 percent were blonde and 5 percent were redheads.

  • How Couples Survive on a Single Income

    Surviving on a single income. Couples take turns at earning and learning.You've got to hand it to Bill and Hillary Clinton: Despite all their bad behavior, they do know how to take turns. When Bill headed off to Washington for his first term as president, Hillary left her law practice and followed. When their time at the White House was up and Hillary ran for Senate and later president, Bill embraced his role as spouse. And a fine political husband he has been, showing up for fundraisers, waving and smiling, and praising his gal at every opportunity.

    Taking turns is a skill we learn early on at the playground but allow to erode as adults. You rarely see couples making magnanimous offers like "You swing first, and then I'll take a turn." Instead, partners hook up while both are working and either live out their years on two incomes or permanently split duties between primary earner and child-rearer.

    While the world makes all sorts of progress around us, we keep recycling the tired

    Psychologist Paige Harden was curious if the age at which you lost your virginity might predict romantic decisions later on in life, such as the decision to get married, how many partners you will have or if you'll be satisfied in your adult relationships. To find out, she looked at 1,659 same-sex sibling pairs from the National Longitudinal Study on Adolescent Health who were followed from adolescence to young adulthood (ages 16 to 29). Each sibling was classified as having an "Early," "On-Time" or "Late" first experience depending on age - younger than 15, 15 to 19, or older than 19.

    Here's what happened when I told my wife and daughters I was gay.Yes, I hid in the closet through 13 years of marriage. I brought two young girls into the world only to turn their universe upside-down and inside-out by putting them through divorce and admitting I'm gay.

    Go ahead. Sling the mud, call me a jerk and tell me this article is trash. Feel better? Good, because that's all about you, not me. And yes, when I came out of the closet, it did save my daughters lives.

    It didn't save them from broken hearts; it didn't save them from shuffling between two households; it didn't save them from having to answer awkward questions. However, I believe based on my experience and feedback from my daughters, that my decision to come out did all of the following: banished all possibilities of them growing up with a narrow-minded perspective of life; rescued them from a false sense of self, based on "living to please others"; taught them the power of "love is love"; validated that there are

    "Sometimes we gotta take back exits," he recently told Oprah. "I never make [Selena] separate from me because I don't want her to ever feel like I'm ashamed of her. I feel like a lot of guys do that, especially in the business. They don't want to be seen with the girl, so they'll make them ride in separate cars. They'll do that getaway stuff. If we get away, we're getting away together."

  • Are You Too Competitive with Your Partner?

    Competition in a relationship isn't always the best idea. Relationships are the ultimate experiment in teamwork. Ideally, a loving relationship is a lifetime contract filled with championship seasons and jewelry that screams happiness. But even the best teams struggle to find harmony-think Shaq and Kobe, George Steinbrenner and Reggie Jackson, Steinbrenner and Billy Martin (who was hired and fired five times), Steinbrenner and Joe Torre. Now think about "us."

    If you're in a relationship that has moved to the committed stage, one that's lasted for a while, there's a good chance that you look back on the the so-called honeymoon phase of your relationship with fondness. You've gotten past those first couple of dates and decided that the two of you do, in fact, have an interest in one another. As you reflect on it, a smile comes to your face along with nice memories.
