    Pulling on his pants after our intimate encounter in my Las Vegas hotel room, the cute 23-year-old I’d just picked up holds out his cellphone, urging me to tap in my number. “You really don’t have to take it,” I say. Having sex with a stranger is thrilling, but I’m not that interested in a repeat performance. Two minutes after he’s gone, I climb back into bed and text my husband, Scott, whom I’ve been with for 18 years. “Just saying good night,” I type. “Good night, dove,” writes back Scott from wherever he is. Scenarios like these were typical...

    Facebook unwittingly provides evidence of infidelity and new relationships, helps track people’s movements and records expenditure on everything from cars to holidays. Facebook is now cited in a third of all divorce cases, research has shown. A survey of legal firms’ caseloads revealed the social network is increasingly relied upon as proof of inappropriate behaviour.

  • Is monogamy on the way out? Polyamorists believe their time has come.

    The Week ^ | 08/06/2014 | By Damon Linker
    When the fight for gay marriage began to gain traction back in the early years of the last decade, social conservative critics usually went beyond denying that marriage could be redefined to include same-sex couples. Many of them argued that homosexuals were much less inclined than heterosexuals to valorize the ideal of monogamy. Allowing gays and lesbians to marry would therefore introduce a polyamorous option into the institution, and adultery would come to be viewed as an acceptable option for all marriages.A spate of recent articles explicitly making the case for polyamory would seem to vindicate those conservative predictions and...

    Early Risers More Likely To Cheat And Behave Dishonestly At Night, US Study Finds By Raziye Akkoc Early risers are more likely to behave dishonestly and cheat during night time hours, a study has found. Those who rise early see their energy levels decrease during the day which directly affects their behaviour. Researchers believe the way a person's internal body clock works could have an impact on the workplace. Psychologists tested the honesty of almost 200 individuals by asking them to undertake problem-solving tests and games. Those who took part were tested on how honest they were about their perfomance,...

    A record 1-in-3 American couples is cheating, a shocking study reveals on this Valentine’s Day weekend. This infidelity is of the financial kind, but no matter — the roller-coaster emotional and economic consequences can be just as devastating as any other betrayal. From secret credit-card spending on fine dining, bubbly and caviar to hidden receipts for beauty treatments, spas and other luxuries (as well as addictions), couples are financially cheating on each other as never before. They often get caught during critical turning points — a bad credit score, for instance, might show up after a joint mortgage application. One...

    Let’s just go ahead and get this out of the way, eh? Aren’t feminists who embrace the “slut” label (e.g., “Slutwalk“) all about empowerment and liberation? And if you are an empowered liberated woman, what difference does it make if you’re married or your partner is married? All those silly vows — “Forsaking all others” and so forth — are just oppressive tools by which the patriarchy subjugates women, and anyone who buys into moral ideals of marital permanence and lifelong fidelity has succumbed to what the Marxists would call “false consciousness.”Stipulate that adultery has occurred and continues to occur...

    An “unforgiving, puritan Anglo-Saxon” attitude to adultery is damaging married life in Britain, driving couples to divorce rather than strengthening the family, according to an outspoken French academic. -- Dr Catherine Hakim, a sociologist and bestselling author, argues that a “sour and rigid English view” of infidelity is condemning millions of people to live frustrated “celibate” lives with their spouses. In a book bound to provoke controversy, she likens faithful husbands and wives to “caged animals” and argues that they should be free to explore their “wild side” with lovers without the threat of divorce.

    In addition to providing predictable Establishment Left spin to the news, CNN is attempting to remain relevant by offering marriage counseling. Its advice: normal couples should follow the example of homosexuals, who have left behind old-fashioned notions of sexual fidelity. According to “eminent marriage therapist” John Gottman, “Straight couples may have a lot to learn from gay and lesbian relationships.” For example, “A number of my gay clients prefer to be sexually open but emotionally monogamous,” says sex and relationship therapist Joe Kort. “They can have lovers on the side and not have it be a threat to the relationship.”...

    Should marital fidelity matter in a political candidate? And yes, I am talking about Newt Gingrich. There are many who would scoff at the notion. Certainly, there were a large number present at the Republican primary debate who delighted in booing down John King when he questioned Gingrich on his ex-wife's allegations. A delight that was only surpassed when their favored excoriated the value of the question and the questioner, with a perfect fury that smacked more cold calculation than any true genuine emotion. For as Mr. Gingrich was undoubtedly already well aware, his greatest positive exposure throughout the campaign...

Can you believe these people are playing, of all things, the Glen Rice card? Here's how this bit of non-news got started. Author Joe McGinniss wrote a book entitled "The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin." It's supposed to be an expose of the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate. In the book, McGinniss claims that Palin had an affair with one of her husband's business partners. According to various news reports,...

Schwarzenegger and Shriver have filed for divorce after his love child scandal, but her staff gave him the shirt as a lighthearted joke last year, a Schwarzenegger source told the Daily News.

    Mitt Romney's religion is far less of a concern to potential Republican voters than it once was, and a candidate's race or sex are non-issues for vast majorities. But if a GOP contender supports gay civil unions -- or has committed marital infidelity -- all bets are off. Twenty percent of Republicans and Republican leaning-independents in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll say they'd be less likely to support a candidate who's a Mormon; that compares to 36 percent when Romney entered the national political stage in December 2006. Far more, 54 percent, say they'd be less apt to support...

"In the Roman Catholic Church, a scandal is not really a scandal until it becomes public," Cutie writes in his new book, Dilemma: A Priest's Struggle with Faith and Love.

Love brought the middle-age couple together — they wed during California’s brief legal window for same-sex marriage.

    WASHINGTON -- A normal, compassionate human ex posed for the first time to the debauchery that remains of John Edwards' dishonest life and career could be forgiven for feeling a little sorry for the pathetic cad. The world now knows just what a self-absorbed lunatic he is married to. He has dealt with terrible tragedy in his life. He juggles two families.

But he is exiled...

But after he returned from a knee injury something wasn’t quite right. He was losing. His legendary focus and concentration were clearly not the same. And there was something else. It seemed like over night he had developed the body of a Greek god. I heard a commentator question whether this new muscular physique was somehow affecting his golf game. And then out of nowhere an early morning automobile accident, wife with...

    Tiger Woods has been voted Athlete of the Decade by members of The Associated Press, his 10 years of incomparable golf outweighing nearly three weeks of a salacious sex scandal. Just like so many of his 64 victories worldwide and 12 majors dating to 2000, it wasn't much of a contest. Woods received 56 of the 142 votes cast by AP member editors. More than half of the ballots were returned after his Nov. 27 car accident which set off the sensational tales of infidelity that have tarnished Woods' image. Lance Armstrong, a cancer survivor who won the Tour de...

Mark Sanford of South Carolina, who confessed in June to an affair with a woman in Argentina. “As so many of us know, the dissolution of any marriage is a sad and painful process,” Ms. Sanford said in a statement. “Because Mark and I are public figures, we have naturally had less privacy with which to deal with our difficulties than do other couples. Indeed, I know it will soon become known, so I choose to release this brief...

    TIGER Woods was rated as "horrible in bed" by one of his lovers, it was revealed yesterday.

But while she was full of praise for the movie heartthrob, she mauled Tiger. Telly pal Krista Grubb, 27, told The Sun: "She was showing all these texts from Tiger and George.

We're told he said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman. The argument got heated and, according to our source,...
