Inconvenient Soulmates

Hello all! Here’s what you should do today: 1. Read this marriage announcement from the Times. 2. Read the comments (that’s where the real fun begins…) 3. Watch video below and think, “What, what…WHAT were they doing?’ Enjoy! Oh, and p.s. I’m performing with Sassy Gay Friend in Boston this week.  If you live in the area, come on by!   I...

Bridge over troubled waters…

Bridge over troubled waters…

When my husband and I escape from the city, we must cross over the RFK Bridge (formerly known as the Triborough).  This unpleasant journey frays our nerves and weakens our faith in humanity.  Contractors whiz by, easily twenty miles over the speed limit, aggressively fighting to get from point A to point B.  Cabs register their disapproval of safe driving skills with blaring horns...

Extra! California working to ban divorce!

I love me some political theater so you can imagine how pleased I was to learn about the 2010 Marriage Protection Act.  This grassroots initiative is looking to put the smack-down on divorce like Prop 8 did for gay marriage in 2008.  The campaign needs 700,000 signatures by 2012 to make the ballot. The slogan for the movement is, “You said ‘Till death do us part.’ ...

Just when the tattoo of their major PDA at the 2000 Democratic National Convention finally faded from my brain… The Gores are breaking up. I first read this on a friend’s Facebook wall and then heard a story on the national news. Forty years. That’s a lot of water under the bridge. The TV news story I saw today insinuated that because Al and Tipper are separated, the...

I was able to catch up with a good friend this past weekend.  I was crashing on her futon while in town rehearsing a play.  Friends for nearly a decade, we once took a now infamous trip to Ireland together with our boyfriends, my brother and his girlfriend.  We were lured to the motherland by cheap tickets on Aer Lingus and naïve optimism that six people in crumbling relationships...

Maybe we all could use a celebrity marriage ref

Knowing that some people are totally against the new show, The Marriage Ref, I need to admit to you that I kind of want to watch it. No, that’s a lie. I really want to watch it. There’s something so comforting in witnessing other married people having ups and downs. Don’t get me wrong: I don’t want to watch sensationalized troubles so huge that the couple teeters on divorce...

Is the success of marriage a science?

Just a quick note today – I’m in the midst of packing up our apartment as we’re moving in two days. We’re only moving two blocks north, but that doesn’t make things any easier. Packing is packing is packing and I’m really behind. So, with no further ado – I ask you – if you could plug your statistics and that of your partner into a computer and you could be...
