    Sally Says Goodbye…

    As more and more people started to read my columns, I found that not everyone loved them and in fact some readers downright hated not only my writing style but also my topics. I wear my heart of my sleeve in life and let it all hang out in my columns, too.

    Is Marital Fidelity Just Good Politics?

    Despite his past failures at "traditional" marriage, Gingrich is a rabid defender of the Defense of Marriage Act (written into law when he was speaker of the US House of Representatives) and a vocal supporter of a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.  To prove just how much he means business this time around, Gingrich says he will respect the institution of marriage by staying faithful to his wife.

    Domestic Goddess

    It is not a "woman" thing that drives me to cook and make my home nice.  It is a human thing.  I want our home to be a place that is peaceful and happy and full of delicious food.

    Demi Moore’s Sexist Divorce

    Though he is the cheater, Kutcher is not being lambasted by the media.  Moore is being painted by the media as the innocent victim and as the oversexed bisexual cougar.

    Why Marry When You Can ‘Lease’?

    Entering marriage with the attitude that it is temporary unless RENEWED by you and your spouse after two years seems just a bit too cynical even for this cynic.  Imagine the conversations between couples at the courthouse in Mexico City.

    Crazy Little Thing Called Love

    My fiancé, on the other hand, is a lifelong motorcycle and dirt bike rider who knows the danger, but he loves to ride, anyway. He doesn’t ride on the street anymore these days, but we decided that on our honeymoon we wanted to rent Vespas to see the sights in Rome.

    Sweethearts and Webcams

    The contrast of this video with the article I was reading that initially led me to the video link is startling.  The laundry list of mistakes the wife in the article thinks she's making are nit-picky (both to herself and her husband). The video, however, shows a couple who simply interact with each other naturally without worrying about if they have a good relationship or what others may think of them.

    A Romantic Ride

    I have been criticized by some for jumping on the cycling bandwagon.  Some say I only like it because Jason likes it.  I'll be honest enough with myself to admit that Jason's passion for cycling is what got me interested in it.  An initial interest in something will only get you so far, though.

    Bridal Gift Registry Temptation

    When I looked at the list online a few days later, I was a little bit turned off by the kind of people others would think we were based on what we registered for.  $16.95 ice cream scoop?  How did that get on there?  When was the last time I even ate ice cream, let alone scooped it out of a container myself?
