In keeping with Leap Day tradition dating back at least 4 centuries I propose that woman take advantage of the day to propose to the man of their dreams. Yep, this is the day whenwomen are given the "privilege" of proposing marriage to men instead of the other way around. The convention is that any man who refuses such a proposal owes his spurned suitor a silk gown and a kiss — provided she was wearing a red petticoat at the moment she popped the question. I remembered! did you? So, today's YOUR day! Happy Leap Day to ya! GO FOR IT!
You Go Girl! It’s based on 2009 Bureau of Labor Statistics figures "almost 40% of U.S. working wives now out-earn their husbands."While that's not the majority, it’s definitely becoming the norm.

A new survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers has found that 92% of its1,600 members reported an increase in the number of cases in the past 3 years using evidence taken from smartphones.

A new Public Polling Survey of Americans across the country fins California is the most disliked of the 50 states, with only 27% of Americans saying they viewed it favorably compared to 42% with an unfavorable opinion. On the other end of the spectrum, Hawaii was the most liked state, with 54% saying they held a favorable view of it and only 10% a negative one. The poll found state opinions divided both politically and by gender. So while Republicans' favorite states were Texas and Alaska, Democrats liked Hawaii, Massachusetts, Oregon and Washington. Women were more likely than men to like New York, while men were more likely to favor North and South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana. Overall, however, Americans had a favorable view of almost all the states, with just California, Mississippi, Illinois, New Jersey and Utah having negative favorability ratings.
So, do you agree?What do you make of California being the most disliked state?Any surprise that Hawaii is the most liked?

The Supreme Court will hear arguments tomorrow (February 22nd) in a case about whether lying about receiving military medals is protected free speech. The Stolen Valor Act, a federal law passed by Congress in 2006, outlawed such false claims, expanding from it having previously been a crime only to wear unearned medals. The Obama administration is defending the law, but civil liberties groups, news organizations and others are worried that it could lead to more attempts by the government to regulate speech. A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the law as an unconstitutional restraint on free speech, but the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld it, saying the 1st Amendment doesn't always protect false statements. In the case the court will hear, a California man who was introducing himself as an elected member of a municipal water district said he was a wounded war veteran who'd received the Medal of Honor, the top military award. However, he'd never served, been wounded or received the medal. His attorneys argue that the lies didn't hurt anyone, so what he did couldn't be considered fraud.
So here are my questions for you!Do you think outlawing false claims of having earned a military medal is justified, or is it a violation of freedom of speech?Is is really fraud?And do you see this as a potential slippery slope to more attempts by the government to regulate speech?
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is strongly defending his decision to have flags flown at half-staff Saturday for Whitney Houston despite receiving emails and other messages disparaging the singer and criticizing him. One of them write that it is wrong to honor a drug addict. Another writes that this honor should be reserved for members of the military, first responders and elected officials.
The Governor says he rejects complaints that 48 year old Houston, who died this past week-end, “forfeited the good things that she did” because of her struggles with substance abuse. “What I would say to everybody is there but for the grace of God go I,” he said.
Christie ordered flags flown at half-staff at state government buildings Saturday, the day funeral services are held for Houston at the Newark church she sang at as a child.
What do YOU think about it?Is he right or is he wrong?
Interesting!Men are as likely as women (and sometimes even more likely) to want marriage and children." A Match.com study called Single in America, designed by biological anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher, found men are far more open to commitment than the stereotype implies. According to the study, both men and women are as likely, overall, to want to get married (33% want to tie the knot). Furthermore, men in every age group are actually more interested in having children, even in the 21-to-34 age group (51% of men in that group want kids, compared to 46% of women). Men were also less likely to report that they'd needed more space in a relationship (58%, compared to 77% of women), and less likely to insist on nights out with friends (23%, compared to 35% of women).

A woman in China has given birth to a 15 1/2 pound baby. The parents, Han Jingang and Wang Yujuan, said they were expecting a big baby but had no idea he would weigh so much. The mother says she could feel the difference between this pregnancy and her last one. She explained, "My belly was bigger than it was then. I guessed the baby would be between 10 and 11 pounds. I never expected to hear that he weighs 15 1/2." The proud father added, "My wife was no different from other pregnant women. She ate and drank normally as she should. But she's given birth to such a big, fat son. Today is the first day of spring in the Chinese calendar and he's a 'dragon baby.' I feel very happy." (UPI)
Yeah, I feel very happy too…HAPPY IT WAS YOU!God Bless her!
A Florida man who was charged with domestic abuse has been ordered to take his wife out on a date. Authorities say Sonja and Joseph Bray got into a fight when Joseph forgot his wife's birthday. Police reports show that Joseph allegedly pushed her onto the couch her during the argument and put his hands on her neck. At a hearing Tuesday (February 7th) Broward County Judge John Hurley "sentenced" the man to get Sonja flowers and a birthday card, take her out to dinner at Red Lobster and then out bowling. Judge Hurley added, "It was a minor incident, in the court's opinion. The court would not normally do that if the court felt there was some violence but this is very, very minor and the court felt that that was a better resolution than other alternatives." The couple has also been ordered to see a marriage counselor. (CBS)
Well, this is another example of a judge who is not taking domestic violence seriously!This is outrageous and he should be removed.When a man puts his hands on a woman, or a woman on a man, in anger, it is wrong and criminal!What a shame!
Hopefully there will not be a next time in this case, but, wanna bet?
When it comes to supermarket shopping, men are better than women at browsing and buying. Despite being organized shoppers, women dislike crowds, feel rushed at the checkout and are always shocked at the price of their purchases. In contrast, ¾’ths of men say they ENJOY the food shopping experience and are happy to navigate their way around the aisles searching out products. Men are less forgetful about what they want to buy, are less likely to feel rushed by the cashiers and are more methodical at the checkouts. The authors of a new study explained, 'Men seem to adopt a much more laid back and methodical approach, taking their time looking for bargains and make sure they're getting the most for their money.' (Daily Mail)

It’s never easy, is it?Yes, there’s another new study that finds those who divorce when young suffer more damage to their health than those who split up later in life. Researchers revealed that going through a divorce caused health to decline, with those aged between 35 and 41 at the time of the split more affected than those who were born at the same time but were older when their marriage ended. The study, published in the journal Social Science & Medicine, also found a difference in how the generations are affected by divorce, with those born in the 1950s finding it harder to deal with than those born ten years earlier.

New report out saying that men are more than twice as likely to want to get married again after a divorce -- with 47 percent looking for a new wife. The new study shows that men are much more likely to get over a stressful and complicated break-up than women. Just 20% of female divorcees say they want to tie the knot a 2nd time. Georgina Chase, divorce lawyer with Russell Jones & Walker Family Law said: 'My experience as a divorce lawyer is that women are a lot more cautious about remarrying once they have been divorced. Men, however, appear very keen post-divorce to find a new girlfriend and often that girlfriend wants the security of marriage and will push for it.' (Daily Mail)
So, let me ask you this; what’s the shortest time you should wait between marriages?Just wondering!
