Attractive wife leads to stronger marriage, study suggests

A study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology concludes that, for men, an attractive wife leads to a more satisfying marriage.

The study was designed to determine if a partner’s attractiveness contributed toward having a more satisfying union by monitoring 450 newly-married couples for four years. It discovered that men married to an attractive spouse tend to be more committed to their marriage and are more concerned with satisfying their wife’s needs. Consequently, a good-looking wife was found to be more satisfied because of a “happier” husband.

Due to varied factors, many couples may find themselves stuck in an unsatisfactory marriage, causing them to consider filing for a divorce. If you live in The Woodlands and are considering divorce, our lawyers from the BB Law Group PLLC are ready to help you with any related issues and legal needs.

Richard Gere and wife Carey Lowell end 11 years of marriage, headed to divorce

Actor Richard Gere and his wife of 11 years, Carey Lowell, have separated and are planning to file for divorce, according to the New York Post.

It is believed that the couple’s different lifestyles led them to arrive at this decision. Gere, 64, and Lowell, 52, have “been spending time apart for quite some time,” according to the report.

A source added that, “They have a place in Bedford [NY], and he likes it because it’s quiet and he likes the solitude,” while Lowell “likes being in North Haven in the limelight. They live next door to Jimmy Buffett and his family, and they’re good friends.”

The two have a 13-year-old son together. They met in 1995 and got married in 2002.

Ex-Miami Dolphin player gets jail sentence for “not taking plea negotiations seriously”

Former National Football League (NFL) player Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson was sentenced to 30 days in Broward County Jail for playfully swatting his lawyer’s behind after winning a plea deal for violating probation in connection with his 2012 domestic violence case against ex-wife Evelyn Lozada on Monday, June 10 in a Fort Lauderdale, Florida courtroom.

Judge Kathleen McHugh ordered a three-month probation for Johnson from September 21 to December 21. Johnson will also be required to attend two counseling sessions per week and engage in 25 hours of community service, which were already a part of the original plea negotiation.

Johnson, a six-time Pro-Bowl player, played with the New England Patriots in 2011 and was drafted to the Dolphins for the 2012 season. However, the Dolphins let go of Johnson shortly before the domestic violence charge was filed against him, prior to the NFL season beginning.
