What's your go-to excuse for refusing sex? One man who'd been spurned one too many times devised a clever (so he thought) spreadsheet, detailing how many times he'd seen—and been denied—intercourse over the course of almost two months.
According to an article in the Daily Dot, his outraged wife naturally shared the document on Reddit. But the move kind of backfired on her, as of course many men of the internet banded to the jilted, unlaid husband's defense.
Sex in marriage is a tricky thing, especially once children enter the picture. There is daily exhaustion experienced on a never-before-seen scale.
Sex may be a conjugal right, but that's not to say it's mandatory to give it to your partner every time they request it. Nor, conversely, it is fair to relentlessly withhold sex either. Problems arise when libidos aren't on the same sheet, so to speak.
Apparently said Husband served Wife with the spreadsheet, highlighting the fact that he wouldn't miss her during a 10-day work trip because over the course of seven weeks, and 27 sexual initiations, only three were 'successful.'
OK, so Wife admits this behaviour is unprecedented for her Husband, and also "bitter, immature, full of hatred.” A spreadsheet ticks all of said boxes (as does sharing it on Reddit for that matter).
Was it fair for Husband to document the extent of his sexual rejection?
But just sometimes Redditors come to the rescue in the most breathtaking way.
Is your child afraid of the monster under the bed? How about the one lurking in the closet? Tell your kids that ghouls and goblins aren't real—yeah, good luck with that. Try as we might, we can't always allay the intense fears our kids face. So why not arm them against those fictional beasts?
According to an article in Huffington Post, French photographer Laure Fauvel empowered the children in her series "Terreurs" against various imaginary demons. And these photographs—depicting kids in PJs bravely slaying all kinds of cowering bogeymen—brilliantly subverts fear.
Wondering what to do with all that Rainbow Loom once your daughter's obsession wanes? A Welsh mom turned a hobby into cold hard profit, having created a dress out of loom and nothing but loom. Subject to a bidding craze on eBay, the dress eventually sold for more than $200,000.
According to an article in the Huffington Post, single mom Helen Wright got the idea for the dress after creating loom projects with her 12-year-old daughter.
