We’re Separated And My Spouse Has Stopped Wearing His Wedding Ring. Mine Still Means Something To Me

We’re Separated And My Spouse Has Stopped Wearing His Wedding Ring. Mine Still Means Something To Me

One of the things that people who don’t want to separate with their spouse are trying to avoid are questions that they don’t know how to answer. They will often dread people asking them about the state of their marriage or whether or not they are going to get a divorce. They don’t know the answers to these questions and they don’t really want to think about them too deeply, or even to talk about them.

One symbol that puts these feelings and conflicts into sharp focus is that of wedding rings. Many people believe that you should still wear them. I am one of these people. My opinion on this is that when you are separated, you are still married. And married people wear wedding rings. I believe that there’s a reason that the couple are separated and not divorced and should therefore act accordingly.

Not everyone agrees with me though. Some people remove their ring as soon as they declare themselves separated or have moved out. They feel that wearing it isn’t being authentic and they don’t want to pretend that things are fine when they are not.

This can lead to conflict when the spouses feel very differently on this topic. Someone might explain: “I have no intentions of taking off my wedding ring but my husband has already removed his and it breaks my heart. I worry that this means that he is going to be looking for other women during our separation or that he does not consider himself truly married anymore. I have mentioned these things to him, but he says that I am over reacting. He says that he just doesn’t feel like wearing his. I don’t understand this. I could never take mine off. I sometimes find him staring at mine, as if he wishes he could ask me to take it off. I don’t want to remove it because of what it represents to me. I am still hopeful that we will one day reconcile. And I don’t want to invite people to ask me questions about why I am not wearing it. I have no idea how I would answer those questions anyway. Plus, it is no one’s business. Is there any rule about whether or not you should wear your ring when separated?”

I don’t know of any rules. Most couples just decide on this based on how they feel at the time. I understand why you are upset. You feel that your husband not wanting to wear his ring is very telling in terms of his intentions. You could be right about this, but I would not panic. People’s feelings can change over the course of a separation. And, not every one wears their ring all of the time.

To be honest, there are times when I do not wear my ring even though my husband and I have been reconciled for a while. It has nothing to do with my feelings about my marriage. I do it …

Fashion Or Comfort – Which Is More Important?

Fashion Or Comfort – Which Is More Important?

It’s all over the magazines, frequently featured on television, and even some newspapers are in on the game. Advice on what to wear and what not to wear. The people we surround ourselves with tend to be all too happy to share their thoughts on our outfits. It’s hard to avoid, because the message is everywhere, and if we don’t follow the trend, we’re told we’ve “let ourselves go”.

But does it really matter? After all, the main purpose of clothing is to keep us warm and safe from the environment that surrounds us. Clothes are meant to be functional. Without fur or feathers to keep us comfortable, we rely on different materials to do the job for us. It certainly is nice when clothes look attractive, but no matter how appealing something is, if it doesn’t feel pleasant against the skin and if it is a pain to wear, why should we subject ourselves to it simply because it’s fashion?

One fashion statement has divided women’s opinions for decades – the high heeled shoe. Some women wear them because it’s generally thought that they make legs look good. Some wear them because they make you look taller. Some actually find them comfortable to wear, whilst others can’t manage to walk more than a few steps in them without twisting an ankle. They can cause foot problems, leg and back pain, all in the name of fashion. Is it worth it?

The answer is not as straightforward as it seems. Generally speaking, the older we get, the less we care about what’s in and what’s out. We’ve decided on what we like to wear and what we feel comfortable in, so when we go on a shopping spree, we’re likely to get more of the same or similar. We may get the occasional “fancy” item for special occasions, but if we like our jeans and trainers, that’s what we will return to on a day to day basis.

Like any industry, fashion is about money. The constant change in trends that makes people change the content of their wardrobes throughout the year is designed to keep us spending our cash. If fashion magazines told us that the latest must-have is, in fact, the same must-have as last year, and the year before that, people would only replace that item if it were damaged or if it didn’t fit anymore. To keep customers on their toes, and to keep people in the industry in work, fashion must keep evolving.

That doesn’t mean that we have to follow along. Not unless we want to. There’s no point in purchasing clothes just because they’re trendy if we cannot afford or long to do so. Yes, pretty clothes can help when we want to attract a partner, but unless that partner is part of the fashion industry or someone who follows the latest trends to the dot, they’re unlikely to care all that much.

My advice is to go for what you like, regardless …

How to Mesmerize Women Into Wanting You

How to Mesmerize Women Into Wanting You

Hypnosis is the quickest way to attract women, but most men don’t know where to start learning about this seduction tactic. You must have heard about this in other circles, but have never thought of hypnosis as a seduction tool.

This seemingly mysterious art is often used by master seducers albeit very subtly. You see, being subtle and being smooth are the keys to making hypnosis work for you when seducing women, even the most gorgeous ones. Here are four tricks you can use as soon as you can find a woman you want to date.

Make women want you by mesmerizing them – use these 4 surefire methods…

1: “Deep and Significant Connection”. Building rapport means making her feel loved and special. You must show genuine interest, and be able to generate the same level of attraction in women to really build rapport. Hypnosis allows you to connect with a woman on the emotional level, making it impossible for her to resist your advances. When she feels that inexplicable feeling of attraction for you, she instantly becomes enchanted by your personality. Who said love at first sight doesn’t exist? It does happen; in her mind and in her heart.

2: “Reversal”. This psychological prompt effectively puts you in control of the situation. Your conversation becomes compelling when you make it clear that you won’t readily agree to everything she says. Egging her on, and making her debate with you while keeping that aura of silent confidence around you will mystify her. Before she knows it, she’s hanging on to your every word and she’s seeking your approval at every turn.

3: “The Reckless Guy”. If she feels that there’s something noticeably evil about you, she’s genuinely attracted. Why? Because women love bad boys, or pseudo-bad boys (nice guys who can act evil on a whim). Being too nice will not make her feel deep emotions for you, while being perceived as bad has the opposite effect.

4: “Fractionation”. Here’s a trick you should definitely know about. Almost all the experts of seduction know about this method of making women fall in love through hypnotic conversation.…

Stalin’s Lovers and Wives

Stalin’s Lovers and Wives

My life was strongly influenced by the Soviet dictator, Joseph Stalin, as described in my autobiography (the link is in the resource box below). That is why I am so interested in his life. As a young man I glorified him; as an old man I condemned him. Stalin, born to poor Georgian parents (in 1879), attended a Russian Orthodox seminary. But instead of becoming a priest he became a revolutionary agitator. He helped to organize strikes in Georgia, and participated in terrorist activities–to raise funds for the Russian communist party created by Lenin. Arrested several times, and sent to Siberia, he managed to escape.

After the second Russian revolution (1917) Stalin became a close associate of Lenin. In 1922, after the civil war ended, Lenin promoted him to the post of the general secretary of the Bolshevik party. That position allowed Stalin to become the supreme ruler of the country after Lenin’s death (1924). Stalin was a brutal fanatical leader responsible for tragic deaths of millions of Soviet people. My own father was one of his victims. That aspect of Stalin’s activities is described in many books. But most of these books focus on Stalinism as a political system, not on the private life of the Soviet leader. A more recent book, “Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar,” by British historian S. S. Montefiore, is an exception. What follows is based on information from that book.

Stalin’s first wife, Ekaterina Svinadze, from a cultured Georgian family, was a sister of his revolutionary friend. They married in 1906. But she died in 1907, at the age of 22, after giving birth to their son Yakov. That child, raised by the Svinadze family in Georgia, was subsequently sent to Moscow. But his relations with Stalin were not good.

Maria Kuzakova was another woman in Stalin’s life. They met in Siberian exile, where he was sent after one of his arrests for revolutionary activities. Their out-of-wedlock child, Konstantin Kuzakov, was born after Stalin’s escape. After returning to Georgia, Stalin met Olga Allilyuev, the wife of his fellow Russian revolutionary, Sergei. Close relations between Stalin and Olga are mentioned by Montefiore. It is interesting that the daughter of Sergei and Olga, Nadia, became Stalin’s second wife, fifteen years later. She was 18 and he was 39. They had two children, Vasily and Svetlana. But that was not an easy marriage; Nadia killed herself in 1932. Some believe that she was actually killed by Stalin, to free himself of his interfering and neurotic wife.

Subsequently, Stalin had casual relations with many young women: actresses, ballerinas, opera singers, etc. But his last love affair, with a simple Russian peasant woman, Valentina Istomina, was long-lasting. Officially she was his housekeeper, beginning in 1934, when she was nineteen. But she became a devoted mistress, and a second mother to Stalin’s daughter, Svetlana. One might say that Valentina, whom he called Valechka, was, in effect if not in fact, Stalin’s third wife.…

Sleeve Garters – The History and Future of a Classic Men’s Fashion Accessory

Sleeve Garters – The History and Future of a Classic Men’s Fashion Accessory

Gamblers and cardsharps, gunslingers and knights-errant, traveling jazz musicians and punk rockers, even office clerks have had a hand in shaping the long and colorful story of sleeve garters — one of the classiest underrated accessories in the history of men’s fashion. Although often regarded today as novel anachronisms from a bygone era, arm garters have meant much to the men who have worn them throughout the ages — from practical necessity to the highest symbol of honor and loyalty, the sleeve garter may not be as prevalent today as in centuries past, but it’s looking better than ever.

Garters in the Middle Ages and Camelot

The sleeve garter has been making sporadic appearances in fashion since the Middle Ages, during a time when leg garters were a common accessory for both men and women — in the era before elastic, both sexes used leg garters to hold up their stockings. These garters were often fanciful, highly decorative, and worn to be displayed, a trend that dominated men’s clothing clear through the 18th century.

Great Britain’s ultra-exclusive Most Noble Order of the Garter, in fact, was a product of this period, having been established by King Edward the III sometime in the mid-14th century as a fellowship of chivalrous knights bound by the symbol of the garter. The organization, still in existence today, is limited to royalty and foreign sovereigns and is regarded as one of the most elite societies in the world.

The reason Edward III chose to use the garter as a symbol of his fraternity is shrouded in legend and has been the subject of a great deal of controversy and debate. Some trace Edward’s inspiration to the Crusades, where knights were said to have tied garters around their legs as talismans that would assure them of victory. Others say the source can be traced to the leather straps that knights of the period wore around their arms to bind pieces of their armor. The inspiration of the garter has also been attached to none other than legendary Camelot, where many members of King Arthur’s Round Table, most notably Sir Gawain, wore garters as a sign of solidarity, loyalty, purity, and brotherhood.

By the end of Elizabethan England, arm and sleeve garters had largely faded from fashion but were destined to make a big comeback during the 19th century. With the Industrial Revolution came the introduction of mass produced textiles, making clothing like basic pants and shirts more affordable to the average person. But mass produced clothing, which couldn’t be pre-fitted to the wearer, tended to come in only standard sizes while most men’s shirts were produced with sleeves in only one length, extra long. Arm garters were a convenient and, for those who couldn’t afford their own tailor, necessary way to adjust the length of one’s sleeves by keeping excess material bunched above the elbow near the shoulder.

Sleeve Garters in the 19th Century and the Wild West

Though production techniques improved over time, leading to …

What Gift to Give Your Boyfriend’s Mother on Her Birthday?

What Gift to Give Your Boyfriend’s Mother on Her Birthday?

You have been dating your boyfriend for some time now. One day he casually lets drop that his mum’s birthday is coming up next week. You skid to a mental halt, chewing your lower lip worriedly. This is important, but just what on earth would be a great gift? Do you give it alone or should it be a dual effort? The answer depends on two things: the duration of your association with his mother and an intimate knowledge of her likes and dislikes. Both factors decide the kind of gift that would be most appropriate.

These are some creative ideas that can make the gift-shopping experience less stressful!

1.Gift certificates to a spa/ salon
Whether she is the stay-at-home type or a working woman, a gift certificate to a renowned spa or beauty salon is always sure to go down well with the recipient. Let her have a luxurious day, indulging in a massage, pedicure, manicure and facial. Every woman loves feeling pampered.

2.Keep his Mother’s tastes in mind
Does her favourite occupation consist of knitting an array of woollies for her family? If so, put together a hamper of high-quality wool in a few well-chosen colours, a set of knitting needles and a pattern book. The next cardigan that you wear might be the one knitted by her! Alternatively, replace the knitting paraphernalia with books, music and video CDs if she is a voracious reader and loves listening to music.

3.Fashion accessories for a fashionable mum
Glam up his mum with a nice cashmere shawl, scarf or stole. For the working mum, a trendy leather handbag -the eternal classic – is a great idea. Fashionable gloves are equally thoughtful, if she wears them.

4.Say it with flowers
She is sure to have a favourite flower – check with the boyfriend. If you have only just started interacting with his family, particularly his mother, then a beautiful bouquet of her favourite flowers makes for a suitable gift. Attach a thoughtful birthday card to the flowers.

5.Even Mothers love chocolates!
This is something that all women, irrespective of the number of candles on their birthday cake, have a weakness for. But, make sure you pick some delectable, gourmet chocolate. Make it really personal by having a message specially engraved for her on the slab. (Of course, check with your boyfriend for the odd chance whether his mum is allergic to chocolates. You don’t her face breaking into a reaction, do you?)

6.Do something mind-blowing!
Ah, this is a gift that is perfect if you do share an amazing bond with his mum and have known her for a while. Is his mother passionate about a cause? Does she have a favourite charity? Secretly (consort with the boyfriend) donate to this charity in her name, giving her complete name and photograph and other details. These charities usually write back, thanking the donor and may also publish the same in their newsletter.

Remember, you are not married — yet! You need to …

Penis Size And The Female Orgasm – Why My 5.5 Inch Penis Couldn’t Get It Done!

Penis Size And The Female Orgasm – Why My 5.5 Inch Penis Couldn’t Get It Done!

When I was endowed at only 5.5 inches, I never, ever gave a woman an orgasm through intercourse alone. I tried and tried, but no matter how good my technique and how strong my stamina, I just couldn’t do it and I left all my partners frustrated. The only answer was for me to enlarge my penis using natural hand exercises — I failed with pills and I couldn’t afford surgery. Here is why penis size is vital for giving a woman an orgasm during sex.

The main reason has to do with the clitoris. As you probably know, it is located on the outside of a woman’s vagina and it is packed to the hilt with concentrated nerve endings. It is the only organ on either the male or the female body that serves one purpose and one purpose alone: providing pleasure. It is so vital to the female orgasm that 80% of women cannot even have an orgasm without direct clitoral stimulation. So if you want to give an orgasm to 8 out of 10 women through intercourse alone, you have to find a way to stimulate her clitoris while you’re thrusting!

This is why a small penis didn’t cut it for me. When you’re small, you don’t create enough friction to get the clitoris involved through thrusting alone. You have to resort to getting her off with your fingers or your tongue. A long, wide penis can create long and intense strokes and get the clitoris involved in a big way. That’s why women climax through intercourse alone when their partners are well-endowed.

For these reasons, I took action with natural penis enlargement methods and I myself became well endowed — from my pathetic starting size of 5.5 inches. I was so dedicated to my routine that I even started seeing permanent size gains within the first two weeks!…
