Flip it and Reverse it in the Man(di) Cave with Pumpkin Spiced Latte (PSL)

It’s that time of the month again. Shut up. I mean, it’s that time of the month for the SisterWives. No we haven’t all migrated to the same cycle. What is wrong with you people? It’s our turn to answer some questions from our guys who were so gracious and fun to answer our questions […]

Fear and Loathing in the Man(di) Cave

Happy October. Since cobwebs fill the corners of our homes and scary dolls habitat our kitchen windows, we decided it might be best to add a little bit of a fear factor to the Man(di) Cave this month. We’ve asked three men some very dark and twisted questions, and they obliged by offering some even […]

In Which I Decide Not to Stop Blogging

Am I Too Angry to Get Laid?

Please welcome my friend and guest poster today, who has chosen to remain anonymous – she is one of the toughest people I know, as well as one of the kindest. She will be the biggest advocate for those she believes in, and a force to be reckoned with for those she does not. She […]

The Man(di) Cave

It’s not every day that we get to have three men on our blog at the same time. Actually, it’s not every day, it’s once a month, and this month, I’m happy to introduce you (as if you don’t already know them) to three of our favorite guys here at SisterWives. You’ve most likely seen […]

The Man(di) Cave: Girls Gone Wild

   So, Tuesday the guys had their turn in the Man(di) Cave. Now it’s our turn. Because equality.   What’s one thing you feel confident you know about men?   Michelle– They are kind of smelly and not as good at handling emotional situations.

I’m Offended That You’re Offended

    I love a good joke. And by good joke, I mean a really bad one. One that defies all of the rules of polite society. Inappropriate. Off color. Dark humor. I can’t believe he just said that. Those jokes. I love inappropriate humor. In fact, I’m married to it. It’s one of my favorite […]

Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love

  And so it begins. That day…that wonderful, romantic day, where frightened Significant Others everywhere rush to the flower shops, candy stores, lingerie departments and/or “Adult Novelty” stores (hope springs eternal), with the intent to purchase the perfect Valentine’s offering for the partner they cherish (tolerate). Those partners, meanwhile, flock to the hair and nail salons, for the mani/pedis and the […]

Men, Show Your Love This Valentine’s Day By Looking Foolish

Since the dawn of time, man has feared Valentine’s Day. I’m a journalist, so you can trust my facts on this. And because I’m a man, you can also trust me when I tell you our fear isn’t because we don’t want to express feelings of love and romance; it’s because we are afraid of […]

Besides writing his own blog, Briton recently co-founded a hot new blog collective, “Original Bunker Punks.” He’s funny, sweet, genuine, and the […]

In the darkest time of the year…

This hippie girl knows that we are in the darkest week of the year. The solstice arrived on December 21, just before Christmas. I think in all our souls we feel a tinge of it, in the frustration with shoppers, the dread of seeing family members next week, the exhaustion that brushes at the edges of […]

What’s Bugging You? -He Said Edition-

Everyone knows we are all about equal opportunity here at The Sisterwives. On Tuesday we gave the floor to the ladies and let ’em loose with what was bugging them. It would be a shame if you missed it.  Now it’s Thursday and, as promised, the guys were perfect gentlemen and waited patiently for their their turn. […]
