“Dear TKB: Help! My sister is about to marry a man she’s never kissed!” | Plus: OMFG, THESE DRESSES.

So the concerned half-sister of a virgin bride wrote in recently for advice, and I’ve made her question the focus of today’s post.  It prompts the broader question for today:  Do you think it’s important to have sex with your partner before marrying that partner? 

As usual, {Continue reading…}

LOVE AND RELATIONSHIPS | They are entirely what *you* make of them… and all you need is 5 minutes.

Happy day, darlings!  Ok, it’s weird that I just started out this post like that, because I have some unfortunate news, my friends.  It seems… well it seems it’s happened again.

Remember that time when I told you about that couple fighting outside at around 3am, right under our window, and how it kept the neighborhood up?  Well, 21 Break-up Street struck again.  For what is now the second time, a man and a woman collided verbally ‘neath our window sill last night and commenced break-up-fighting of the *slapping hands together in opponents face* and *screaming angrily without listening to the other party* variety.  {Continue reading…}

“THE NEW MONOGAMY” | Wonder What Your Partner Is Thinking? | Also, “The New Wedding Cake!”

Update from the Editor (that’s me!)…

This post has garnered a lot of attention, as one might expect.  It’s quite a digression from what I typically post (well, save for the cuppie-cake aspect).  However, as we plan one of the most exciting and personal days of our lives, we can’t allow ourselves to ignore one very important thing.  How do we – as a couple – define our relationship?  It’s likely the most critical conversation to have with your significant other… whether or not you think you know how s/he feels.

The concept of monogamy is one that affects each and every one of us on a highly personal level, and the very thought that its traditional definition is being threatened can shake us to our cores.  Your comments on the topic have been so deeply thought out and so incredibly serious that I decided to give this post another day of life above the fold.  Let’s keep the conversation going…

Ok, so yesterday I randomly came upon quite the blog-worthy item.  It has little to do with wedding planning, but it has everything to do with love and relationships, which is of equal importance… some might even say greater importance.  Let’s begin.
