    An elderly Ohio couple who had been married for over 70 years died last week, mere hours apart. Helen, who was 92, passed on April 12, and her 91-year-old husband Kenneth died the next morning after realizing she had gone.

    The couple's eight children tell a tale of their amazing love story, and how the two have been inseparable since they met as teenagers -- even holding hands every morning during breakfast. Daughter Linda Cody said, "We knew when one went, the other was going to go."

    Do you ever think of all the random ways people come in and out of your life? Some of the people we're most strongly bonded to are there simply because of the right circumstances, and there's just something terribly fragile about that. This is especially true when it comes to falling in love. The same guy who catches your eye one day could fly right past you another day. I've been in a relationship with the sweetest, most thoughtful, hottest, most who-raised-you-to-be-so-fantastic man ever for the past 8 months or so and I'm ridiculously happy -- but it almost didn't happen for us.

    Relationships are better off when the man is older. With a certain few exceptions -- notably, every Real Housewives star ever -- he is usually the less intelligent and mature one at the same age. He is probably better able to provide at an older age, too, if that's important to her. (Luckily for me, it's not very important to my wife!)

    The reason it happens anyway is because we will always find our biggest dating successes with younger women. In our early 30s, they're like mail-order brides just grateful to have escaped Eastern Europe. There's no talk about children or how we intend to provide. All we need to do to impress them is not live with our parents.

    I haven't always been a huge fan of long road trips. To be honest, it was just an incredibly intimidating thought. I couldn't imagine spending endless hours in a car with anyone as an adult. Perhaps it was all those family car trips in the '70s that left me a bit traumatized. My mother had this insane fear of rest stops so we traveled with a bucket. Yes, a bucket.

    So when my boyfriend and I decided to take a road trip to Miami, Florida (from Washington, DC), there was a mix of excitement and panic. I LOVED the idea of going on vacation with him. I loathed the thought of getting there. This would really be a test of our relationship. If all didn't go well, I might come back a single, albeit sun-kissed, woman.

    Despite those fears, we planned our 20-hour trek. I didn't know it at the time, but that trip essentially sealed the deal on our romance. Here's how.

    The wedding ring is symbolic -- it's not just a ring. It stands for so much and can bring people comfort in so many ways. Kristen Walsh wanted her husband's wedding ring after she received the terrible news that he had passed while on duty. Boston Fire Lieutenant Edward J. Walsh Jr. and fellow firefighter Michael R. Kennedy died battling a nine-alarm fire in Back Bay.

    But when Walsh was found, his wedding ring was not on his finger. Kristen asked the firefighters to find it and Walsh's colleagues vowed that they would. The ring meant so much to Kristen, and it was all she wanted of her late-husband's, her best friend, the father of their three children.

    When tasked with delivering a wedding speech, there's a ton of pressure to make it memorable. Some of us do that by going for the emotional, tearjerking effect, while others lean on the laughs. Leave it to Bradley Bredeweg, co-creator and executive producer of The Fosters on ABC Family, to go for pure, unadulterated entertainment ... and preaching the truth to his BFF Stephanie Huntington on her wedding day!

    Bredeweg's "speech" has gone viral, because it's one of the hottest choreographed wedding performances of all time -- set to none other than Britney Spears' "Work Bitch." HA! Yep! Even Brit herself loved and tweeted the clip.

    There are some classic mistakes that women make with men. So classic that I honestly wish a book was made of them -- a rule book -- and women had to read it in high school. And then take a test on it. Like 50 tests. And they had to memorize every single word.

    But there is no Relationship 101 unless you count the ones in the School of Hard Knocks. You have to live it or have your friends live it -- sometimes multiple times -- for the lessons to kick in. And sometimes then they don't even stick. But, boy, if every woman knew these classic mistakes, and to avoid them, before plunging into the dating world in their early 20s, what a different experience love could be for those ladies. Here are 6 classic mistakes women make with men.

    Proposals are romantic no matter where they happen. It's a proposal -- a declaration of undying forever kind of love! They often are very telling of what kind of man or woman you will be marrying if you say yes. Hopefully you already know that though. But if Lesley Frankel, 28, had any doubt about John Tracy, 29, that was replaced with a huge dose of "oh my goodness, you are the sweetest, most incredible man in the world" after his proposal.

    And all he had to do was ask her to marry him in a taxi cab. But it wasn't just any taxi cab.

    Claire Johnson, 50, was at a two-week guide dog training course in March of 2012 with her guide dog Venice when her pup fell in love with another dog. Venice and Rodd, another guide dog, were smitten with each other at first sniff. It was hard to get them to stop playing and nuzzling together. There were other dogs there, but these two just wanted to be around each other. This of course brought Claire to talk to Rodd's owner, Mark Gaffey, 51.

    Claire and Mark realized they lived less than two miles from each other. They planned Labrador Retriever "dog dates" so the two puppy lovers could hang out and sniff each other's butts and do whatever it is dogs in love do. I am talking about the dogs. All of this amore rubbed off on Claire and Mark.
