According to experts, there are many behaviors that predict divorce. Some are completely obvious like the fact that the person you married slept with all your friends than ran off with your sister. Then there are other things like finances, which is the number one thing couples argue about most according to statics. While both these and a plethora of other reasons make total sense as to why some people might call it quits, there are even more absurd reasons why someone might opt for divorce… you know, like having a daughter.

While the myth is that more than half of couples divorce, according to recent statistics, only about one-third are doomed to end up going down that road. Divorce, of course, is never easy and sometimes, even as much as we fight, unavoidable. I’ve always taken solace in the fact that sometimes love just dies, and in cases like that, no one is to blame.

Family law firm McKinley Irvin has looked into some of the more interesting reasons as to why people have divorced. While they may seem a bit laughable at first, you probably won’t be the one laughing when you’re on the other side saying adieu simply because you live in the wrong state.

We Heart It

Relationships are all about feelings. One morning, you’re up; by night, you’re down… but by “down,” I don’t mean in the dumps. I mean down to the core of your existence, experiencing new levels of emotion and pain.

Those who say relationships are all moments of bliss and euphoria aren’t wrong; they’re just forgetting a lot.

Because good relationships have those negative feelings as much as they have positive ones. Only, the negative ones aren’t negative in the way you’ve experienced them before.

You feel them in a completely new way. You feel sad, but it’s sorrow that comes from deep yearning.

You feel scared, but for the first time, it’s a fear that comes when you’re completely and utterly dependent on someone else.

You feel blind, but you can see perfectly. You feel empty — because for the first time, you’re giving so much away.

Why The Fat In Your Hips And Thighs Won’t Budge

You aren’t making it up. It isn’t just in your head. There IS a reason you can’t lose that last 5 pounds. Celebrity trainer, Holly Perkins, calls this fat (often found in the ‘trouble’ areas) “the final frontier.” Your lack of results isn’t due to lack of effort but is a result of homeostasis.

Every single system in your body, every part of your body, works to maintain a happy, level, cozy environment. Your body is hard wired to keep this status quo so if you are making major lifestyle changes, be prepared to be uncomfortable for a period of time because your body is definitely going to fight you on it. Even after you’ve adopted your new lifestyle and have started to reap the benefits of being fit, a weight loss plateau is inevitable.

According to metabolism investigator at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Deborah Clegg, it is more difficult for women to lose weight in certain areas due to evolutionary causes that are no longer advantageous.  “[Women] fight against losing weight in our hips and thighs. And the reason we’re programmed that way is that we rely on the calories in our hips and thighs evolutionarily to provide us with calories for breastfeeding or to help sustain a potential famine while we’re pregnant.” Interesting, no?

For many women, these trouble areas are found in the hips, thighs, glutes, and abs. There are all areas that are biologically predisposed to reserving fat while having a lot of muscle that goes unused. Strength training amps up your metabolic rate and as you build muscle underneath, your fat on top starts to look leaner.

You won’t be able to quickly spot reduce these areas but strengthening the area makes will definitely make you feel better about being in your skin. Use that pair of jeans that now fits as a sign of your success, not the number on the scale.


Signs You’re Not in Love, You’re Trying to Fix Him

Relationships are different experiences for all parties involved.  While you may think you are in a deeply passionate intertwinement of hearts, you may, in fact, be simply going through the motions of being in a relationship under the guise of repairing what the girl before you damaged.  While separately, a number of qualities could indeed make you an ideal partner, in concert they point to an intensely flawed dynamic.  Here we run down 15 signs that you are not in love; rather, you are trying to fix your special someone.


You’re attracted to people with baggage—the more the merrier.
Signs You’re Not in Love, You’re Trying to Fix Him

You’re afraid to move on from your past relationship, so you take on a new love interest as a way to cope.

You think your significant other ‘needs’ you, and you aren’t ready to let go of them until you ‘help’ them.

Your relationship has become a string of transactions, and affection is the currency. You exchange it for appreciation, gratitude, and what you view as loyalty.

You simply love the idea of being in love.

You hate to see your better half not succeed.

You need one thing in your life to be a constant.

You’ve convinced yourself that you can, indeed, make someone change—for you.

You have a serious relationship or two under your belt, and strongly believe it’s time for another.

You involve yourself too much in the lives of others—friends, family, and significant others.

You believe the opposite of vulnerability is solitude, so you choose the former.

You have yet to discover what you actually like about your special someone, aside from their ‘need’ for you in their life.

If your partner is pulling away, you view it as their attempt to harm themselves, and you take it very personally.

You have an unnecessary desire to prove people wrong about you two.

You care far too much about what others think about you and your significant other.
