Q: My ex-wife married a man who appeared on the scene only a month ago. She said she was married civilly and plans a church wedding in the future. My concern is for our kids, 9 and 12. We have joint custody -- alternating every two weeks. (I think she told me the part about the church wedding so that she could live with her friend until then, with the kids in tow.)I wish her well, but the children do not know this man. I myself have never met him. Should I be worried?A: Concern is more fitting here, since you are not a long-distance parent and will be with your children two weeks out of every month to check on their welfare and provide stability.

Well, the Republicans are smiling and unpacking their boxes in government buildings all over the country, and my women friends and I are wearing black and weeping and putting our social concerns away with the baby clothes -- fond memories but with no use right now.Angry White Men have risen up to reclaim their own, we are told, and the hands that pulled the Republican levers during the midterm elections will now use those guns that they feel they have an...

I hate to admit this, but it has recently become clear to me that women are much deeper than men.Or how else do you explain this Lyle Lovett-Julia Roberts deal?Julia Roberts is, of course, beautiful. It's pretty much official. They don't star you in a movie called "Pretty Woman" if anyone is likely to confuse you with, say, a pastrami sandwich.She is, to use the technical term, a babe.But she's so much more than that. Here you've got this glamorous woman who, face it, could have any guy she wants.

BLYTHE, Calif. -- The world's most married man is now the world's least mourned.Glynn "Scotty" Wolfe did one thing in life and did it often. He married. In 89 years, he married 29 times. He married teen-agers and grandmothers, farm girls and drug addicts, virgins and prostitutes, preachers and thieves, taking and shedding partners casually as a square dancer.He married some women for years, others for months, a few for days, and he loved, honored and cherished each one in his own odd way.Marriage was his life's work, his mission, his lasting monument.

At age 13, Tina Lynn Akers was too young to consent to have sex with anyone, but she was not too young to marry her 29-year-old boyfriend and father of her child, and therein lies a legal twist.That twist, and some front-page attention from a national newspaper, have placed Tina, now Mrs. Compton and mother of 3-week-old boy, her family and various politicians running for office into the media spotlight.Hours after the story of the marriage of Tina, a seventh-grade dropout, and Phillip Wayne Compton Jr., a roofer, landed on the front of the Washington Post yesterday, the girl had signed a contract with "The Montel Williams Show" in which she promised not to talk to reporters.

Everyone has heard about the gender gap -- the tendency of women to vote Democratic, while men tend to vote Republican. It's having a modest impact on this presidential election: In the latest Los Angeles Times poll, Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton attracted 50 percent of women's votes, compared with 45 percent of men's.But there is a more fundamental divide in the electorate in this year of "family values," deadbeat dads and "Murphy Brown." Call it the marriage gap.Among married couples -- who constitute over three-fifths of all adults in the country -- Mr. Clinton leads President Bush by a gossamer 43 percent-39 percent margin, according to the Times poll, which was conducted from Oct. 2-Oct.

I immediately stopped dating June 22, 1985, my wedding day. I felt -- well, we both felt -- that we should probably stop seeing other people because of the inherent mixed signals (not to mention awkwardness) dating can impose on a new marriage. Finally, the pressure and hoopla of dating were over. No more late-night doorstep moments when your date turns and says, most tenderly, "I'd invite you in, but I just had my rugs cleaned." No more worrying about garlic breath. No more feigning interest in her undergraduate studies.

Tom and Sarah meet cute. They act cute. Gosh darn it, they flat-out are cute. Which is the extent of positive things to be said about Just Married, a mercilessly unappealing romantic comedy about two young people who fall in love, get married, go on the honeymoon from hell and return, each convinced that the other is the root of all evil in the world. Wonderful movies have been made from far flimsier premises. But most of them featured screenwriters who knew how to build a joke, directors who knew how to pace a sequence, characters who managed to be at least occasionally appealing and actors who could play more than one note.
