Cassie Dotts married her college sweetheart the day before she graduated from Washington State University.
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — With friends and family already gathered for her graduation from Washington State University, Cassie Dotts thought it would be a good time for another ceremony: her wedding.
She married University of Idaho fisheries science graduate Ben Ho in a ceremony Friday in Moscow, Idaho. Then she received her doctorate in veterinary medicine in Saturday's WSU graduation in Pullman, Wash.
It’s not that your friends don’t want to attend your big day; sometimes it’s just too expensive.
Last year, Marissa Anwar, a 29-year-old operations consultant from Ontario, Canada, dropped $7,000 to attend six weddings, reports the Toronto Sun. This sum covered gifts, dresses, travel, bridal showers and bachelorette parties. Saddled with personal debt, the financial burden associated with her friends' big days caused the frequent guest to make a decision: no more weddings.
“It adds up really quickly,” Anwar told the newspaper, adding that she has turned down about five invitations since instituting her no-go policy. “Girls can be very extravagant with their weddings, but not everyone can afford to drop a few hundred dollars as a wedding guest or a member of the bridal party multiple times a year. It’s just too much.”
Sext safely with BurnNote.
Texting offers us a way to feel closer to the people far away from us. However, sometimes the person that you're texting wants to take it to the next level so that you can feel even closer, and as much as you might want to do so, the prospect of sexting can seem totally terrifying.
Your mind tends to start racing with the possible consequences of indulging — What if someone reads what I write? What if he saves them and shows them to his friends? What if eventually these get leaked and my conservative family completely disowns me?
A new app called BurnNote eliminates those negative possibilities! Just like SnapChat made it easy to send embarrassing (and even dirty) photos that disappear without a trace, BurnNote makes sure that the raunchy message you sent is "burned" after reading.
Spring showers, go away. Summer sex, are you here yet?
By Gena Kaufman
In the most important ongoing debate of our time — the ranking of seasons according to their effect on our love lives — the people have spoken. When it comes to sex, summer reigns supreme.
According to a British survey of 2,000 people who were asked to share the month in which they have the most sex, things heat up in more than one way in August. It was the most popular month for getting it on. In last place? February, so thanks for nothing, Valentine's Day.
On average, women tie the knot at 27. But is there an ideal age for matrimony?
True love is supposed to come when you least expect it. But if you want to go by the stats, it comes in your late 20s.
Recent statistics from the Census Bureau show that the average age of first marriage for women is 27. For men, it's 29. Those numbers are up from previous years, so it appears that young couples are delaying marriage — or refraining from it altogether.
My new least favorite way to meet guys.

This morning as I settled into my usual routine of sipping a cup of coffee while catching up on the DVR-ed shows I couldn't stay up for last night, "The Colbert Report" introduced me to this new method of socializing that makes me never want to say "Cheers!" again.

Budweiser devised these Buddy Cups -- or as Steven Colbert renamed them, Stalker Steins. The cups are integrated with Facebook, so that when two people clink their cups together, they automatically become "friends" online.
Some argue that we've outgrown matrimony.
Historians and sociologists will tell you that marriage was originally more about business than marital bliss. Over the centuries, tying the knot has evolved quite a bit.
Officials have decided to let Mariela Castro attend a conference from which she had been barred.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The daughter of Cuban President Raul Castro will be allowed to travel to Philadelphia to accept an award for her gay-rights advocacy, officials said Tuesday, reversing a previous decision to reject her visa request.
Mariela Castro will attend the Equality Forum's annual conference on civil rights for lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender people, according to Malcolm Lazin, the advocacy group's executive director.
Lazin, who had blasted the State Department's travel denial last week, said organizers are "delighted" at the change of heart.
