Kristen and Dax: Can You Cheat Jealousy?
Huffington Post - 13 days
Kristen Bell recently shared how her husband, Dax Shepard, was her wingman at the Golden Globes so that she could meet her celebrity crush, Riz Ahmed. This is a perfect example of a relationship where both partners are secure and completely trust that, even though one may find another individual attractive, it won't challenge their fidelity. It's natural to see others as appealing, even when you're in a committed, monogamous relationship, but it is also important to remember that everyone's physical appearance changes. People get older, sometimes they get sick. Beauty is not enough to sustain an ongoing romance. If you know in your heart that you're always the most important person to your partner, then even if they have flirtations and/or a crush it will enable you to tolerate your partner's attention or interest in someone else without feeling threatened. So how do you get the trusting feeling that equips you to joust jealousy? Make sure you take the time to tell and show one anoth ...

Gavin and Gwen: Too Late To Appreciate?
Huffington Post - 13 days
Gavin Rossdale discussed his much-publicized divorce from Gwen Stefani in a recent interview, saying it was the opposite of what he wanted and that divorce is "one of the hardest, most painful things to go through." He also lamented the loss of her "unconditional love" for him. These sentiments may come as a surprise to people given that Gavin had a three-year affair with the family's nanny, which is what led to their divorce. It raises the question, why would someone have these regrets so long after the indiscretions that tore his marriage apart? Perhaps it's the age-old saying that you don't know what you have until it's gone. The truth is, many times people may not value their partner until they are separated and can finally recognize all the love they had, which is now lost. Marriage is a slippery slope. There are so many moments in any given day during which your partner might do something to irritate you, or you them. It can be something small, like forgetting to take out the g ...

Huffington Post - about 1 month
For BRIDES, by Jillian Kramer. You’ve likely read some scary — and outdated! — research that says nearly half of marriages end in divorce. But rather than fret you’ll one day become a statistic, why not work on protecting your marriage instead? “You don’t need to do monumental actions to divorce-proof your marriage,” says relationship expert Dr. Jane Greer. “The most important thing is to maintain a sense of intimacy and connection, and to not let your anger build up to the point where you have grievances and grudges and can’t reconcile the conflict.” Here, experts give nine ways to divorce-proof your marriage today. Always greet one another with affection. “Make a point to say hello with a kiss when you come home from work — not just a quick peck on the cheek — to truly say hello and convey good feeling and happiness at seeing your partner at the end of the day,” suggests Greer.

Matthew Lewis and Angela Jones: Will They Agree On Planning Their Nuptials?
Huffington Post - 2 months
Matthew Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter movies, is engaged to be married to his girlfriend Angela Jones. This will be his first marriage, but her second. In fact, it was reported that they began dating shortly after she divorced her first husband. Matthew seems to have gotten the proposal right, judging from the photos of the ring and the Paris vacation during which the engagement was said to have taken place. The question is, will the fact that she has already had a wedding change the dynamics of, and possibly complicate, the marriage planning that lies ahead for them? This is something that happens often when two people decide to spend their lives together, one might have gone through it all before, the big wedding and honeymoon, and the other might be experiencing it for the first time. Sometimes this can affect what each is hoping for as far as their big day goes. For the one who hasn't experienced it before, this might be something they have been dreami ...

Tiger Woods And Elin Nordegren: Time Apart, Healing Betrayal?
Huffington Post - 4 months
Tiger Woods opened up about his relationship with ex-wife Elin Nordegren this week. The couple ended their marriage in 2010 after Tiger's cheating scandal, but now they have managed to build an amicable friendship. With time, Elin seems to have gotten past the betrayal of her ex-husband's infidelity, which is a challenge for many couples, in order to do so. Tiger and Elin share two children, so this must be a welcome development for all of them. While some couples are able to find higher ground and continue to make their marriage work after an affair, others realize that the intensity of the pain of the incident is just too much and that they are better apart, as was the case for Elin and Tiger. Either way, initially there can be so much anger that it takes effort to not drag the children into it. This can be especially difficult if the spouses have parted and find themselves alone. The one who was betrayed feels that their whole world is turned upside down, and wants to get back at ...

Beyonce and Jay Z: A Balancing Act?
Huffington Post - 5 months
As Beyonce's career continues to soar, her husband Jay Z has taken on the role of full-time dad to their daughter Blue Ivy. After spending the summer mending their marriage, Jay Z seems to be okay with the idea of being a stay-at-home dad while Queen Bey continues her rise to even more success and fame. Their attempt to balance the responsibilities of parenthood and two careers is a great example of how spouses can support each other, but it isn't always easy to reach that point. How can two people who each want what they want reach a place where they are both getting what they and their family need? Managing all the responsibilities of a dual-career household can be daunting. It requires both adults to be willing and able to prioritize whose needs come first at different times along their marriage journey, and then be flexible and make the necessary changes as life's challenges and opportunities shift. For example, you might start off your marriage with one of you being the clear br ...

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are getting on with their lives in the aftermath of their divorce. The couple is dealing with divorce, which brings its own unique brand of hardship. One of the things that contributed to their marriage ending was dealing with jealousy. Miranda has confessed to reading Blake's text messages and direct messages on Twitter.

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper: Can Work Marriages Work?
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
The on-screen chemistry shared by actors Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper is so true to life, it is hard to believe it isn't real. The two can be seen everywhere from Silver Linings Playbook to American Hustle to their upcoming project Serena. Both admit to being each other's work spouses, but insist there is no sex in their relationship. Having a close relationship with someone at work can happen to anyone, not just movie stars. You don't actually have to be "playing" husband and wife onscreen to feel like you are just that, to an extent. It can happen in any job setting. The question is, how entangled can you become with that person, and where do you draw the line so the relationship doesn't negatively affect other parts of your life? Defining the boundaries and being clear about how far and where you can take the connection can, in fact, make the friendship better and allow you to fall into the zone where flirting can be fun but safe. It also makes room for your chemistry to k ...

Cameron Diaz: Is Sex the Answer?
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Actress Cameron Diaz recently revealed her secrets to a healthy life: diet, exercise and getting busy between the sheets! She credits sex as being her "fountain of youth," what keeps her young despite the hectic and fast-paced lifestyle that comes with being a celebrity and constantly in the public eye. Cameron believes people need lots of sex in their lives, that it's a healthy, natural bodily function -- and she's right. Sex not only promotes intimacy between partners and strengthens their bond on a physical level, but it can also boost self-confidence and increases happiness thanks to the many endorphins released at climax. And remember, it feels great too! While having lots of sex promotes health and well-being, making the time and being able to do it as often as you like can be challenging. A variety of responsibilities can get in the way including work, children, making dinner, etc. So what can you do to safeguard against this? Here are a few tips that can help you spend more t ...

Is He Over Her?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
By Kelly Coleman You're seeing a new guy and things are going swimmingly, except his end of conversations recently have included quite a lot about 'her' and not so much about you. You can't shake the feeling that he might not be over his previous romance. Is his 'ex' talk no big deal... or an EXceptionally big red flag? Knowing the Signs "'Hung up' shows up in various ways," says Bobbi Palmer, GalTime dating and relationship coach for women over 40 and founder of Date Like a Grown Up. "Whether he is still in love with her, he is still hurt or he's still pissed, she is in his thoughts and he can't resist expressing what he's thinking."

Did you ever think about what your role is...what you could be doing to turn up the heat? We did, so we asked renowned sex expert and family therapist Dr. Jane Greer.

    Howard Hughes spotted Greer modeling in the June 8, 1942, issue of Life magazine and sent her to Hollywood to become an actress.
    More Details Hide Details Hughes lent out the actress to RKO to star in many films, (another source says Greer's then-husband, Rudy Vallee, "helped her get out of her contract with Hughes and secure another pact with RKO Studios) including Dick Tracy (1945), Out of the Past (1947), They Won't Believe Me (1947), and the comedy/suspense film The Big Steal (1949), alongside Out of the Past co-star Robert Mitchum. Hughes refused to let her work for a time; when she finally began film acting again, she appeared in You're in the Navy Now (1951), The Prisoner of Zenda (1952), Run for the Sun (1956), and Man of a Thousand Faces (1957).

    More Details Hide Details She recovered, but it has been speculated that the condition contributed to her "patented look" and "a calm, quizzical gaze and an enigmatic expression that would later lead RKO to promote her as 'the woman with the Mona Lisa smile'." She claimed that the facial exercises used to overcome the paralysis taught her how to convey human emotion. On December 4, 1945, Greer had her name legally changed to Jane Greer by a court in Los Angeles. She said of her previous name: "Mine is a sissy name. It's too bo-peepish, ingenueish, for the type of role I've been playing. It's like Mary Lou or Mary Ann." A beauty-contest winner and professional model from her teens, Greer began her show business career as a big band singer. She sang in Washington, D.C., with the orchestra of Enrique Madriguera.
