Blogger Seth Adam Smith, a married man, wrote a blog post about overcoming his own selfishness on his way down the aisle with the Love of his life, Kim. Seth describes a conversation he had with his wise dad who told him point blank that marriage is not for men — though not in those exact words.
His dad’s exact words were:
Marriage isn’t for you. You don’t marry to make yourself happy, you marry to make someone else happy. More than that, your marriage isn’t for yourself, you’re marrying for a family. Not just for the in-laws and all of that nonsense, but for your future children. Who do you want to help you raise them? Who do you want to influence them? Marriage isn’t for you. It’s not about you. Marriage is about the person you married.”
Seth’s blog post has caught fire all over the Internet, on social media websites and message boards. It’s as if Seth’s message of self-sacrifice and consideration for others is a new concept in human behavior.
Personally, I think Seth cheated on Kim, and that’s what brought about his great metamorphosis. Seth and Kim are high school sweethearts who met when they were 15. It’s likely that Kim knows Seth is a dog — but she married him anyway, because dogs need Love too.

Black Twitter is a subculture of the social networking giant Twitter.com. Black Twitter exists to tear down public figures who are at the forefront of urban entertainment. On Black Twitter nothing is sacred; not children, not even the Pope. Black Twitter has decided that Beyonce’s daughter, Blue Ivy, was really born a boy, and that she was fathered by an up-and-coming Canadian hip hop artist named The Weeknd (pictured above).
So when photos surfaced online of Blue Ivy wearing baby dreads in her hair, Black Twitter zoomed into action. Check out some of the harsh tweets compiled by Bossip.com after the break.
Actress Stacey Dash sparked outrage when she tweeted her endorsement for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The former “Single Ladies” star tweeted: “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.” She also retweeted a message from Romney’s official Twitter page that read: “Women have had enough of @BarackObama’s disappointment. We need new leadership to get our economy growing again.”
Stacey’s twitter followers immediately reacted with controlled rage and indignation. One confused follower wrote “Wait stacey dash is voting for romney? you get a lil money and you forget that you’re black and a woman. two things romney hates.”
And a staff writer for the blog Hello Beautiful wrote: “If Stacey Dash only knew (which she probably doesn’t), Mitt Romney doesn’t exactly support women’s rights. He plans to “get rid” of Planned Parenthood; an organization that funds health services and counseling for women.”
The blogger conveniently left out the fact that Planned Parenthood is a racist organization that has played a major role in the mass sterilization of black women.
How ironic is it that a gay man is featured on the cover of a magazine called Snatch? As you know, the word “snatch” is a slang term for a woman’s intimate parts — which we now know Frank wants no part of.
Ocean, 24, became something of a cause célebre among the LGBT community when he came out to his fans and the world just days before the release of his new album, Channel Orange. Many within the LGBT and music communities reached out publicly and privately to the effeminate singer to show their support.
But others are not so supportive.
President Obama sent out this anniversary tweet today — just 3 years after his wife, Michelle Obama, told People magazine she considered divorcing him.
In the interview with People magazine in 2009, Mrs. Obama revealed that her marriage to Barack was on the rocks. Since then she seems to be cold and distant to her husband in photographs — especially when she forgets that there are cameras around.
The biggest challenge for a married couple is to keep the spark alive long after the dopamine fades.
