So, I have four siblings, not all full. Although some are step, we all call each other just brother or sister. My (step-)sister (let’s call her Marie) is younger than me, but she’s not youngest (my other sister is, let’s call her Selene). Marie has two beautiful daughters, lovely girls I completely adore. She’s been…

His grandfather commented on some random FB post (ABOUT FUCKING CORGIS, WHO WANTS TO BRING SOMETHING AS AMAZING AS CORGIS DOWN LIKE THAT???) that I wasn't a (maiden name) now, and that I needed to hurry up and change my name on Facebook.

Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 34.
Well… Australian boyfriend left last night, to go back to Australia and be awesome with all the other Australians. But before he left…
I got married when I was 22, and I decided to keep my last name. This was more an act of laziness on my part than anything else. I hated paperwork, and changing your name requires a lot of paperwork.

My mom always told me that it only happens in fiction, but after sharing my story where my ex told me he was planning not to show up on our wedding day despite enthusiastic planning on…
Have you seen the latest viral post from a smug newlywed telling everyone else how to have a successful marriage?
