  • Terrorized by my Bicycle for my 45th Birthday

    By Lisa Ellen Niver

    November 16, 2012 | 9:13 pm

     "I did this to myself," I mumbled. I kept thinking, "This is my fault. I am stuck on this bike in this heat in Bagan to celebrate my big birthday. I chose this. I must be crazy." I wondered, "Why am I torturing myself? Are we having fun yet?"

    George, my happy husband, seemed so...

  • Married . . . at last!

    By Mierel Verbit

    October 26, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    I got married for the first time at 50. The groom was 51. Yes, we are both Jewish. We met online. I am tall, thin, blonde, green-eyed, and have a little turned-up nose. My father-in-law's first comment, across the Thanksgiving table, was, "Doesn't she look like a shiksa?"

    My...

  • Book review: The Divorce Lawyers’ Guide

    October 5, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Divorce attorneys. Are there two dirtier words in the English language? Thoughts of them conjure up images of circling human sharks, cold-blooded assassins and profiteers feasting on the misery of others. Turning to them for suggestions on how to stay married would seem about as...
  • The Cost of Marriage

    By Jonathan Udren

    December 8, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    After two years of single life in Israel, I looked forward to the new perspectives that marriage would bring to my Israeli immigrant experience.

    I knew that the normal adjustments from bachelorhood were inevitable, such as putting down the toilet seat and washing linens more...

  • Bebe and Me

    By J. Keith van Straaten

    July 14, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    A lot of people my age feel pressure from their families to get married, but I think my not being married is the only thing keeping my grandmother alive. Bebe often tells me she just wants to live long enough to see my wedding. I'll say "I do" and then she'll immediately keel over....

  • Change of Heart

    By Seth Menachem

    May 5, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    It was only last October when I penned the column, "No Rush," for this paper, arguing against marriage.

    Now, eight months later, I take it all back. Well, most of it.

    As I wrote, I still do believe that other people often try to convince you to get married in order to...

  • He’s my ...

    By Teresa Strasser

    April 7, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    The term "boyfriend" is like the knee joint on someone who is morbidly obese. It is being asked to do way more than it was designed

    to do. It is buckling under the pressure. Where it once could do the job, it is now carrying too much weight.

    Example: My grandma had a companion...

  • The Haunted Divorce

    By Adam Gilad

    February 19, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    She was beautiful. She was sweet, smart and reflective. She was a devoted mother of a little girl, clearly able to love and to carry on a bright, thoughtful conversation. We connected, and, in first moments made drunk by hope, we discovered a shared passion for the poet, Rumi, and...

  • Get Me to the Beach on Time

    By Carin Davis

    February 12, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Tired of the same old country club I-dos? Bored with the been-there, danced-to-that-Beverly Hills reception? Why not take your wedding on the road?

    At one time, destination weddings were reserved for celebrity vows, hushed elopements and civil ceremonies. Exotic locales meant no...

  • I, Me, Not-Husband

    By Adam Gilad

    January 8, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    I am completely frozen.

    I have just walked out of a pitch meeting in Santa Monica. Wilshire Boulevard is breezy and gorgeous. It

    is 4 p.m. I have been married for 17 years and now, it appears, I'm not. For the last 17 years I had a wife, a family, a home, a dock in the open sea of...

  • Finished

    By J.D. Smith

    January 1, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    It has been said that a man is not complete until he is married. Then, he is finished.

    Well, I got married.

    When last we visited these pages, I was on my way to the altar. My long-suffering girlfriend -- lets call her Alison, although I can't see why we should, when her name is...

  • Friendly Match-Ups

    By Lilla Zuckerman

    October 16, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    It was the perfect day for a wedding. As birds chirped, guests sniffled and the bride and groom exchanged vows, I sat in the back row and reflected on the wedding party, all dutifully standing at attention up front. The bridesmaids, decked out in periwinkle, were my former sorority...

  • Damaged Goods

    By Steve Greenberg

    September 11, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Have you ever noticed how people who buy a newspaper from a coin-operated rack tend to ignore the top paper, and dig down for the second or third copy?

    It's basically an attempt to get a more pristine copy, for fear that the top copy may be damaged or missing something. Many folks...

  • Romancing the Industry

    By Tom Teicholz

    August 28, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Los Angeles is often depicted as a hedonist's pleasure palace adorned with beauty and perfumed by sex. But where, oh where, is the romance? In a city devoted to storytelling, how do you find the fairy-tale happy ending and meet the person you will marry?

    I arrived in Los Angeles...

  • A Ramah Union

    By Matt Rosenbaum

    August 7, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    David Ross and Lauren Schmidt met for the first time in Los Angeles in May 2000. Or at least, the couple is pretty sure that was the first time.

    Raised in Palo Alto, David was an active member of United Synagogue Youth since his early childhood, and spent every summer at Camp Ramah...

  • The Early Midlife Crisis

    By J.D. Smith

    August 22, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    My 29-year-old cousin, "Barry," is having his first "midlife" crisis. By simple math, this would put his entire life span at a scant 58 years, well shy of the actuarial tables' prediction. His midlife crisis should be about 10 years hence. It's been a slow week over here at my place,...

  • Why I’m Still Single

    By Tom Bunzel

    May 16, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    A friend of mine and I were sitting at Canter's having lunch when we were discussing my dating life -- or lack of it. Since he knows what a cool guy I am, he suggested that there was just one tactic to take -- to make up an ex-wife and a divorce so that I could avoid the stigma of...

  • Bundles of Joy

    By J.D. Smith

    January 17, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    The stork has been awfully busy lately.

    It seems as though everyone I know is having a baby. A couple I haven't heard from in months sent a postcard with a picture of what I thought was a Sharpei puppy -- it turns out the little boy's name is Jesse. I didn't even know they were...

    The ad caught our eye: an all-expense paid Shabbatweekend at the Brandeis-Bardin Institute for couples married withinthe past 18 months. I had been to Brandeis before, so I knew that, ifnothing else, my husband, Neal, and I would experience a tranquilShabbat in a beautiful setting.
