It's no secret that on average Americans don't really get a lot of vacation days. That coupled with the fact that some bosses make us feel as if we need to eat, sleep and live in our cubicles and devote all our time to the company so we're consumed with guilt if we just need a day to ourselves. It's a sick trend and one that's slowly affecting our personal lives. In a new book titled New Slow City: Living Simply in the World's Fastest City, writer Bill Powers explains about the latest plans amongst super busy newly weds: unimoons.
I've heard of crappy proposals before, but none compare with how Running Wild star, Bear Grylls chose to propose to his wife Shara. First off, they were naked. And I wish I could say that he proposed after a night of love and bliss but that's not even why they were naked. He recently opened up about the special day in an interview with U.K. personality Piers Morgan on his show Piers Morgan's Life. Let's just say he proposed using his butt cheeks!
Every bride and groom has their own way of approaching their wedding day. Some go big, some go small, some follow themes. But one place that is apparently becoming a popular locale among soon-to-be-married couples? Underwater!
The Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel in Florida is apparently now offering something called "the mermaid wedding package" for pairs who have always wanted to tie the knot while submerged in water. The entire ceremony takes place in the 8-foot-deep end of the hotel's pool, under the guidance of a "mermaid" officiate. And I thought getting married by an Elvis impersonator was weird…Continue Reading >
I'm happy (and yet slightly devastated) to report that our favorite bachelor George Clooney is a bachelor no more. In case you haven't heard yet, the 52-year-old actor is officially off the market and engaged to 36-year-old Amal Alamuddin. Yup, it looks like Clooney really did pop the question. But wait a minute ... didn't he say he was never going to get married again after he divorced Talia Balsam back in 1993? What made him change his mind?
When I first heard that Johnny Depp was walking around wearing a "chick's ring" on his engagement finger, I really didn't think anything of it. After all, he's always been a bit eccentric when it comes to his style. But when I heard that Charlie Sheen was doing the same thing, I feared a new trend was on the rise. Sheen was recently seen in Paris with his fiancé Brett Rossi (a former porn star) rocking his new engagement ring from Tiffany & Co. He claims he and Johnny Depp are starting a new trend--man engagement rings! Oh NOOO!!
Engagement photos are just one of a long list of things every soon-to-be bride and groom has to get through before their big day. That's why one Los Angeles couple recently decided to have some fun with it, taking their photos in the style of romantic comedy movie posters.
As can be seen in the pictures after the jump, Dean and Julie decided to poke fun at the cliché poses and taglines typically seen in the genre and uploaded the end results to Reddit. The photos have since earned thousands of comments and gone viral ... and it's easy to see why! They're hilarious!Continue Reading >
In an unbelievable twist of fate, a New York husband and wife of over six decades, died just hours apart while holding hands in an upstate local hospital earlier this month.
The couple, 83-year-old Floreen Hale and 82-year-old Ed Hale died side by side, only 36 hours apart after suffering from congestive heart failure and a severe leg injury, respectively. According to the NY Daily News, Ed had initially been located at a hospital but demanded to be moved closer to his wife, despite his grave condition--a move that sounds risky but won't surprise you after you hear their amazing love story.Continue Reading >
Thanks to YouTube, I've seen plenty of amazingly creative proposals captured on tape, but the latest one to go viral might be the best and most original one yet! Why? The man pops the question to his girlfriend during an epic rap battle!
That's right! Adam Felman (known as Mos Prob) and his girlfriend, Jacqueline Harper (aka Rapunsel) were participating in a Don't Flop rap battle in Leeds, West Yorkshire when he decided it was time to get down on one knee. And the whole thing is not only surprisingly romantic, it's downright AWESOME to watch!Continue Reading >
Imagine it's your wedding day and the groom doesn't show up. You could have a break down a-la Carrie Bradshaw or you could marry a wedding guest the way P. Ponradha did at her nuptials. The 23-year-old Indian woman who was supposed to marry 35-year-old J. Sithiraivelu ended up having to marry to another man when he disappeared.
Hmm, this sounds like the makings of a new telenovela, but what exactly was Sithiraivelu's excuse for not showing up?!Continue Reading >
I've heard plenty of amazing engagement stories, but this video which captures a surprise flash mob proposal is by far one of the most heartwarming and romantic ones I've seen yet.
As can be seen in the clip, a guy named Dustin was taken to Home Depot under the guise that he was helping his roommate pick out lighting for a party. Once he got there however, he was led to the lumber section, where he had the surprise of a lifetime waiting for him!Continue Reading >
