Does Blogging Change Your Relationship?

[Editor's Note: Carriage Before Marriage has an uneasy post about observing the divorces of bloggers online and wondering what impact writing about your significant other has on your relationship.  It's a very interesting question for the sharing age; where we air our arguments in real time as well as throw up pictures of sweet moments that would have -- at one time -- remained within the secret knowledge of the couple. --Mel]

Could be pure coincidence.  If half of all marriages end in divorce, some of those marriages are bound to belong to bloggers.  (And there are so goddamned many bloggers.)   But I can’t help wondering if there’s a connection – like, if inviting a few thousand strangers into one’s relationship has consequences.  Is complaining bad karma?  Does bragging tempt fate?

Now it’s all about you, you, you, or rather, what you do for me, me, me.   Read more >

Choosing Limbo: What Do You Think of Undivorcing?

I wasn't freaked out; only intrigued. I mean, even marriages that end start from a place of love, and it makes sense that a marriage that ends amicably can be sustained with what amounts to a very complicated friendship. Not everyone seeks divorce and the closure it can bring to a union. This woman was free to date other people and pursue her own interests, her children had an easy transition between co-parenting homes, and her ex-husband-yet-still-husband had the aid he needed in order to live. They had a situation they made work.   Read more >
