19 Secrets To A Lasting Marriage That Are #RelationshipGoals

“When you’re mad or resentful, say so! Don’t keep things in, or hope your partner can figure out why you’re unhappy. No one can read your mind, even the one who loves you the most. When you argue, stick to what you’re angry about. Don’t call names, bring up old stuff or disparage your spouse. When you get to the point that you feel like walking away (and everyone does at one point or another), stop to remember at least three times your partner was the best thing in your life. Then take a deep breath, hold on to the memories of those joys, and go back to loving her/him.”

The 1 Royal Marriage Rule That’s Changed Since Princess Diana Married Prince Charles

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship is giving many people serious hopes for another royal wedding, but before the Suits actress even makes the trek down the aisle, she has to receive the royal seal of approval from the queen herself. Luckily for her, she has one less rule to follow: the virginity rule. The UK royal bride’s virginity rule suggested that women had to be virgins before marrying a royal, which was the case when Princess Diana married Prince Charles in 1981. Before Diana could marry Charles, Diana’s family had to confirm she was indeed a virgin. In fact, according to Tina Brown’s biography The Diana Chronicles, Queen Elizabeth II specifically chose Diana for her son because she was "irresistibly innocent" and had no ex-boyfriends to sell their steamy stories to the tabloids. Oh, how the times have changed.

While there is no fixed rule that states a royal bride has to be a virgin, there is a code of behavior that has since evolved. Today, royals are encouraged to live their own lives without carrying such a heavy weight of society’s expectations, and like many modern couples, Prince William and Kate Middleton even lived together before they got married.

LeBron James Said “Being Black In America Is Tough” After His House Was Tagged With A Racial Slur

NBA star LeBron James on Wednesday addressed a racial slur that was found hours earlier tagged on the front gate of his Los Angeles home, telling reporters that “being black in America is tough” no matter how famous your are.

Los Angeles police told BuzzFeed News an investigation remains ongoing after the department received a call early Wednesday regarding vandalism at James’ Brentwood house. When officers responded at 6:45 a.m., the slur had already been painted over, LAPD spokeswoman Irma Mota said.

Police did not disclose what the slur was, but a source told the Los Angeles Times it was the N-word.

Speaking at a news conference in the Bay Area, where his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, will play the Golden State Warriors in the first game of the NBA Finals, James said he was saddened that on the eve of one of the greatest sporting events, he was siting in front of the cameras discussing racial issues.

“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough,” James said. “We got a long way to go for us as a society, and for us as African Americans, until we feel equal in America.”

Still, he added, if the vandalism incident keeps the conversation about racial problems going, he was at least “OK with that.”

“It just goes to show that racism will always be part of the world, part of America,” James said. “Hate in America, especially for African Americans, is living ever day, even though it is concealed most of the time.

“We know people hide their faces and will say things about you, and when they see you, they will smile in your face. It’s alive every single day.”

Former Trump Campaigner Sent To Prison For Conspiring With Rancher Cliven Bundy

A man who helped run Donald Trump’s veterans organization during the 2016 presidential campaign has been sentenced to prison for conspiring to bring guns and gunmen to an armed standoff in Nevada.

A federal judge in Nevada sentenced Gerald DeLemus, 62, Wednesday to more than seven years in prison for his role in the 2014 standoff led by rancher Cliven Bundy. According to the Department of Justice, DeLemus’ role in the standoff began when he spoke with Bundy in April 2014, promising to bring both guns and armed supporters to southern Nevada, where the rancher and his family had long refused to pay cattle grazing fees.

Tensions over Bundy’s cattle — as well as long simmering angst over federal land management in the West — eventually sparked a confrontation in which Bundy and his armed supporters protested, closed a freeway, and faced off with federal agents.

In mid April 2014, DeLemus traveled to the standoff from his native New Hampshire, according to the Justice Department, eventually becoming a leader and organizer of Bundy’s supporters. His roles included providing personal security for Bundy, organizing and leading armed patrols, manning checkpoints, and calling on other supporters to join the demonstrations.

After the standoff, DeLemus went on to gain leadership experience in another movement: Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

DeLemus, a former US Marine, served as a New Hampshire state co-chair of Trump’s veterans coalition, according to the Union Leader. While serving in the campaign, DeLemus traveled to Burns, Oregon, and met with participants in another armed standoff with the federal government, this one led by Bundy’s sons.

Federal prosecutors indicted DeLemus in March 2016, and he was subsequently arrested. While still in jail and under indictment, he was named an alternate delegate for Trump to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

In August, DeLemus took a deal and pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy and one count of interstate travel in aid of extortion.

Bundy and other high profile supporters, meanwhile, are jailed and awaiting trial. A trial for several other participants in the standoff ended last month in a mistrial on most counts. Two men were convicted on a handful of charges in that trial, but are still awaiting sentencing.

DeLemus is the first person to receive a prison sentence for his role in the standoff. During Wednesday’s hearing, Chief US District Judge Gloria Navarro called DeLemus a “bully vigilante” before handing down a longer-than-expected prison term, the AP reported. DeLemus has already spent about 16 months in jail, meaning he now faces another six years in prison.

“I have to say, Mr. DeLemus,” Navarro said at the sentencing, “that you unfortunately are blinded by the information you choose to believe.”
