Zany Marriage Laws which are Still Enforceable

Ever since the first man and woman were joined in marriage to go forth, be fruitful, and multiply -- laws became necessary to maintain order in a civilized society. Many laws were enacted at specific points in history to respond to specific needs of that particular time.

A number of our current laws of marriage are deep-rooted, and have been modernized over the years to keep abreast of our ever changing society. However, there are still some on the books which have not changed with the times -- yet still enforceable.

For instance, if you are prone to hastily act out of character after a few drinks, you might consider moving to Pennsylvania. Clergy in Pennsylvania can not perform a marriage ceremony if the bride or groom is drunk.

An allergy suffering husband in California can have his wife jailed if she doesn't cook her dust cloth after using it. A husband in Tennessee can divorce his wife -- if he leaves her with 10 pounds of dried beans, 5 pounds of dried apples, a side of meat, and ample yarn to knit herself stockings for a year.

Husbands in Hartford, Connecticut, you can not kiss your wife on Sundays, but you can in Halethorpe, Maryland -- providing it lasts no longer than one second.

It's safe to get married in Chillicothe, Missouri because they can't throw rice at you. However, play it even safer and get married in Colorado -- where no one can throw shoes at the bride and groom.

In Virginia, a man can curse and/or abuse his wife provided he does it in a low voice, but she'll have to leave the house naked in Michigan if she decides to leave him -- he owns her clothes and the law says he can follow her into the street and remove them.

Wives, here's your chance. You can berate your husband in public in Dixie, Idaho, but if a crowd gathers, your husband can be fined. However, your marriage can be annulled if you entered into it on a dare -- in Delaware.
For loving wives, it's illegal to remarry the same man four times in Kentucky. Go to West Virginia where first cousins can marry -- unless the bride is 55 years old.

In Lebanon, Tennessee, a husband cannot kick his wife out of bed even if her feet are cold; however, a wife can kick her husband out of bed without provocation. That doesn't work in Florida because even if she does get mad -- a wife is limited to breaking no more than 3 dishes a day.

For you wives in Owensboro, Kentucky, you can not buy a hat unless your husband has had the opportunity to try it on himself first.

In the Balanta tribe of Africa, a law states that a bride must remain married until her wedding gown has worn out. However, if she's desperate to get it over with quickly, she only has to wait a month -- then rip up her wedding dress.

In France, a woman was granted a divorce after she told the judge that her husband played the bagpipes, and made her keep time with a flyswatter.

In Greece, if a man is caught kissing his wife or any other woman in public -- he can get the death penalty!

Finally, one unwritten law which you should enforce upon yourself -- no matter where you live: Marriage is forbidden to be entered into with a love of your life; but with he or she whom is the life of your love."Garb Your Copy of "The Magic of Making Up"

Sharing is Loving, Loving is sharing - Your Hopes, Fears and Dreams

Talking is one way to share thoughts and feelings between partners.  Research has shown that women actually talk more than men,  in fact about three times more in terms of the number of words.

This fact does not excuse men to from not talk.  It is the men who “clam up” and refuse to talk.  There are also cases where men who do more talking   than women, just as there are cases where it is the women who talk a lot  as well as those women who do not wish to talk a lot.  There is actually no clear cut or fool proof way to judge who should do more of the talking or who should do less.  It is primarily not about gender but about the individual themselves.

Communication is a vital part of any relationship.  Openness and honesty is a key ingredient to maintaining a kind of memorable relationship that is mutually loving and emotionally comfortable.

The following are tips and possible activities one can do to get yourself or your partner to talk his/her heart out, and share voluntarily any fear…

Three Areas Pointing to the End of a Relationship

Every couple longs for eternity. Unfortunately, forever challenges all couples regardless of how they started, what they have survived and the best of intentions. Being able to spot when things are coming off the rails in a relationship will allow everyone to assess what needs to be done to salvage it and if they wish to invest the time.

Area One: Communication

Communication is held up as the best barometer for telling the status of a relationship. Part of this stems from how pervasive an aspect of the whole relationship communication turns out to be. So how can a couple tell if trouble is brewing in the arena of communication?

All Is Quiet: Long, uncomfortable silences charged with tension define the time spent together. This may occur because one of the pair feels no desire to expend the energy to engage in healthy communication.

Swimming in the Shallow End: When discussions happen, the topics remain light or non threatening. Short and unemotional answers replace detailed explanations …
