Hi everybody!  I’m super excited to be sharing this interview with you guys today!  H’s answers are thoughtful and honest and I had a great time reading them.  As always with this series, please remember to keep comments positive and enjoy! First off, hello! How did you meet your partner and how many years have you been together? I’ve known G for nearly ⅓ of my life, we have been together for 10 ½ years. We met as freshmen in college. He lived one floor below me in the dorms. One Read more […]

Wow.  Yes.  I’m finally getting around to another relationship interview.  Because well, Drama Happens.  Life gets in the way.  Babies are born.  Time marches on.  Cliché phrases are written.  But the series is back and that’s what matters! Next week’s interview is about navigating a long-distance marriage.  Most of us have been in a long-distance relationship at some point in our lives (raises hand) but it’s rare for couples to live in separate states and homes after they are married.

A Closer Look: Married to a Man, Almost Married to a Woman

Today’s interview is with fellow Bee blogger and friend of mine Kari, aka Miss Tiara on Weddingbee.  She is one of those people you could talk to for hours about anything because she’s just so likable and smart.  It’s clear to me Kari’s past relationships do NOT define her, so why am I asking her to talk about them?  Well, besides the fact that I believe gay marriage should be treated as any other marriage instead of being glorified or condemned, I also feel we need to hear more from people Read more […]

Oh what’s that?  You totally forgot about this feature because it’s been so long since the last interview??  Oops.  Sorry about that!  Blogging about house and baby has been time-consuming but also a lot of fun!  That said, I love exploring relationships, so I’m really pumped to be bringing this feature back to life!! Next week we’re going to hear from Kari about her marriage to a man and her almost marriage to a woman.  I’m excited to share her unique and honest perspective on relationships Read more […]

Happy Tuesday everybody!  It’s time for another relationship interview and this week we are talking to S about what it’s like to be single when it seems most of the world chooses to pair off and get married. (Yes, it’s become clear I have an obsession with funny e cards.  Sorry I’m not sorry.) As always be respectful in the comments but DO feel free to comment!  S is a fellow artist friend and someone I met while doing theatre in Chicago.  She’s really nice and really funny.  And I Read more […]

Yep, it’s that time again.  Time to explore another type of relationship through a personal and eye-opening interview!  Yay! Next week’s topic will highlight something that has a tendency to get overlooked quite a bit here at Drama Happens or any relationship blog for that matter.  I am referring to single people.  Single people who are happily single, who are not searching for their soul mate online or hunting down prey at the bar.  Single people who are primarily single by choice and who Read more […]

A Closer Look: Married, No Kids

Posted by & filed under Interviews, Marriage, Not the Norm, Relationships General, Wee Ones.

Hi friends!  I’m back with another exciting interview that I can’t wait to share!  Today, we’re going to hear from Tiffany on why she’s not interested in having children.  I like Tiffany because she’s not afraid to say what she feels and doesn’t spend time comparing her life to anyone else.  We all can learn from that, right?  Please enjoy and as always, be respectful with your comments (not really an issue here, I have the best readers!!) How long have you been married? New Years Day will Read more […]

First off let me apologize, I realize these “COMING SOON” posts are mostly just a big tease, but I enjoy whetting your appetites and creating some buzz around my content so I hope you’ll bear with me.  Thank you readers! First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes… Or does it??  It’s not quite as common these days to see baby strollers (cause let’s be honest, no one says “carriage” anymore) immediately after (or in some cases before) marriage.  Sometimes what follows is higher Read more […]

A Closer Look: Open Marriage

Posted by & filed under Interviews, Marriage, Not the Norm, Partnerships.

Hi Everybody, I’m so excited to bring you this exclusive interview today, and I’m giddy with glee to read that many of you were excited too. I know T through a theatre company I used to work with in Chicago and I’m thrilled that she agreed to talk so openly (no pun intended) on this subject. I hope this goes without saying, while smart and thoughtful comments are welcome, let’s keep in mind if you don’t have anything nice to say, please don’t say anything at all! This isn’t a reflection on anyone Read more […]

Hello everybody!  How is your week going?  Anything dramatic happen thus far?  🙂 It’s time for a quick midday post because I have something very exciting to share. Next week, I will be posting an interview with a friend of mine who is an open relationship.  EEEK!  It’s a behind the scenes look at what it’s really like when someone is in a polyamorous marriage.  (Note: polyamory is different from polygamy.) An open relationship might not work for most couples, but the more we understand Read more […]
