    Rich, ugly men marry hot women, right? It's an age-old formula we all know far too well. Think of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley or Ric Ocasek and Paulina Poriskova -- or any number of aging multi-millionaires who aren't exactly swimming in the good gene pool who managed to land themselves stunning women. Well hold onto your hats, folks, because I'm about to rock your world with this: It's all a lie.

    According to a study that ran last month in the American Sociological Review, the idea of a "status exchange" relationship -- where one partner, usually a man, exchanges his wealth and power for the other partner's beauty -- is largely a myth. Yes, that's right. Everything you think you know, you don't.

    To the women who think good is great,

    Confession time. You've been treated badly by some guy you used to think was an absolute dreamboat, a perfect 10 -- a Gosling, if you will. And you let it happen. Are we right?

    And it's because of this jerk that you think just okay relationships are the norm. It's because of inconsiderate guys like him -- who thought it was OK to make you feel like text messaging was the only acceptable form of communication and "forgetting" about the dinner plans you've had for two weeks because he was "stressed" was permissible -- that you feel like you don't deserve the best.

    The good news? You're not alone. There are a bazillion single women who wonder about the same thing you wonder about every damn day: "Am I asking for too much?"

    Spoiler alert: No. You deserve it, the "too much." The catch? You just need to stop settling for less than what you really want.

    Hi, my name is Adriana, and I have posted obnoxious couples selfies. I admit, I am guilty of this. Just the other week while on a trip with my boyfriend we snapped a photo of ourselves kissing in front of a sculpture that spelled out LOVE. I know, right? And I SHARED it. Why? Because I'm happy, that's why. And because it was freakin' adorable ... to me, anyway. But deep down I knew I was doing that thing couples do: Sharing the sappy couples selfie. I'm still not sorry, and I may even do it again. However, I will try not to. And just to prove I know what to avoid, I've compiled a list of classic annoying couples selfies none of us should ever take, no matter how happy we are.

    Ladies: The key to a happier relationship is simpler than all those self-help books make it seem. All you need to do is avoid asking your man any of the questions below. None can be answered acceptably. The closest he can come to being correct is changing the subject. Science has tried for decades and failed to understand why you continue to feel that some good can come from asking any of the following…

    We all know about long-distance love and the way it wreaks havoc and NEVER, EVER actually works, right? But, of course, even when a relationship starts in the same place, sometimes life gets in the way.

    Business travel happens, people get transferred while their love must stay put and sometimes, despite the odds, distance really works for people. But who are these people? They are the ones who, despite the odds, are able to find ways to make distance work for them.

    Here are 7 ways that people bridge the distance and keep love alive even when there are hundreds of miles between them.

    It appears that getting engaged to Hollywood celebrity George Clooney isn't going to impact lawyer Amal Alamuddin in any signficant way. Don't expect her to start lunching at The Grill with Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox. Don't expect her to start getting pedicures with Kris Jenner and shopping on Rodeo Drive with Gwyneth Paltrow. If George Clooney wanted someone totally not in his glam world, well, he got her. Because wait til you hear how Amal plans to get back to work after her whirlwind engagement to Clooney!

    I hear way too many moms complaining about how they don't want to have sex or how their sex lives are boring and well, I don't really have much sympathy because these days, there's just no excuse.

    There are all sorts of fun things you can do in the bedroom to spice things up that you're probably just not willing to try. And hey, we tell our kids "you can't say you don't like it if you don't try it" when they turn their nose down to a new food.

    Guess what, moms? The same thing applies to sex. So loosen up that darn chastity belt and stop being such prudes.

    Earl Myatt loved his wife, Mary Watt, so much he could no longer stand to see her in pain. The woman he'd met at age 17 and to whom he was married for 42 years had suffered a brain aneurysm that made it impossible for her to continue caring for herself. Instead of dealing with the difficult task of watching her deteriorate, the 59-year-old father of two and grandfather of four took Mary to the Verona train tracks in New York on Sunday afternoon. He helped position them both so that they would be killed by an oncoming train. And, if that isn't heartbreaking enough, the last phone call he made before they committed suicide was to his son.

    Sex isn't everything in a marriage, but it is important. If you stop communicating, stop showing affection, your sex life suffers. And sometimes it happens the other way around too -- sex life dwindles, you stop showing affection, you stop communicating.

    The average person has sex 103 times per year, but the average couple only has sex about 68 times a year. I also know many couples who have sex a lot less, and many of those marriages are on the rocks.

    Dr. Laurence Levine, a urologist and CMO at Promescent, says that some of the most common reasons married couples have sex less is lack of stamina, time constraints, and dissatisfaction with quantity and quality of sex. These are also common causes for cheating and divorce. He gave us 6 tips on how to have a better sex life with your spouse and how to improve your marriage.

    He's handsome, charming, smooth. He says he loves you and wants to treat you like a princess. You've never felt anything like this before. This man has to be your soul mate. He says he feels the same way. This could be the perfect beginning of a lifelong relationship ... or a con job. Con men know exactly what to say and do to get you hooked. Mischele Lewis was recently stunned to learn her boyfriend and father of her child was actually notorious con man William Allen Jordan. Unfortunately, she didn't find this out until he had stolen thousands from her, broken her heart, and impregnated her. If you pay careful attention, you can probably figure these things out a bit sooner. Here are 6 signs you're with a con man.
