Be The Change You Want To See In The World

Recently, someone we know posed the following question to us: What is one thing you think you needed to change when you first got married. After pretending to discuss it for a bit while we were in fact just drinking lots of wine, we decided why not write about it. (And just so you don’t think we pretend to have come up with the title or that we think Oprah said it first, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” are the words of Mahatma Gandhi.)

She Says: I’ll Take Change For $1000 Alex

Being married has taught me a lot about myself.

For instance, the fact that my husband intentionally tries not to laugh at witty comments I make just to prove a point tells me I’m funnier than I ever thought. Continue reading

Forgive and Forget

It’s never an easy thing–forgiveness. Especially in a relationship with your loved one. They always seem to be making the same annoying mistakes over and over. Forgiving the mistakes simply condones poor behavior. Right? We don’t think so. Continue reading

Sexual Revolution or Media Intrusion

The average male loses his virginity at 16.9, and the average female will lose hers at 17.4 years old. It’s thought that willingness and impulsiveness to have sex at an earlier age is inherited. About 1 in every 10 married adults sleep alone; that’s 12% of married couples. About 75% of men orgasm during sex, but only 29% of women do. The average woman between the age of 20-59 will have 4 sex partners throughout her life, whereas the average male of the same age group will have 7 sex partners. Why are these stats interesting? Why is our culture so interested in sex? Why does sex overpower and dominate everything that we’re fed each day? Sex is interesting, yes, but aren’t there more important things to be constantly obsessing about? Continue reading

PMS

Is there any further intro necessary? Everyone understands the He Says, She Says debates and jokes regarding PMS. There’s nothing interesting we could possibly add. Or is there?

She Says: Can I Get A PMS Pill Up In Here?

I once dated someone who frequently called me a b-i-t-c-h. And not in a joking way. It irritated me so much that after we broke up (thank God) and once I started dating my husband, I filled him in on my issues with referring to me as a b-i-t-c-h in any sense of the word. Continue reading

The Vegetarian Wants Pig, The Lawyer Wants Single Ladies

Married or not, many relationships require each partner to make sacrifices at some time or another. In our recent session on the couch, we drummed up thoughts about things we tend to give up to make the other person content and keep a peaceful marriage. Thus, the following is a recount of things we each want, but cannot have thanks to each other. It really is a vicious cycle.

She Says: There Is Always A “Yes” Somewhere Behind a Man’s “No” … So I Keep At It

Compromise. When I first got engaged, everyone told me that it is compromise that makes the marriage work. What a little piss ant of a word for such a ginormoous responsibility. Continue reading
