Marriage may seem to you like a proud accomplishment - that glorious moment when your fairy tale ending finally comes true and you can set off into the sunset to raise a beautiful, charming family and share happy stories over lemonade and tea cakes on your pool deck.
The dreaded moment in every relationship would be when you each decide to be honest with each other. And by honest we're not talking about how many exes your boyfriend had, or how he lied to his parents about being a virgin at 25. We're talking about deal-breakers here. Stuff that will send your phones flying across the room and send your palm to his cheek with a clean, crisp slap.
In last week's Modern Love there was a story about a boy who proposed to a 24-year old girl. She freaks out, even though she loves him, but wants to focus on her career.

Worse, a wife may never find out.
Consider it as karmic justice: Not only does cheating on your wife fracture your relationship, it also fracture your penis. According to a study in Sexual Medicine, doctors at the University of Maryland found that men who have extramarital affairs are more likely to break their penises. Half of their penile fracture patients between 2007 and 2011 sustained penis injuries when they were having affairs.

Can't seem to score a date? Then why not enlist your female friends to help you out?
