Just in case you needed more motivation to not fight with your person and generally do all you can to enter into what will be—and remain—a loving, giving, healthy marriage filled with lots of productive, open communication and love and warmth and rainbows and baby unicorns, science has something new to declare on this topic: Fighting with your spouse—especially when combined with a history of depression—can actually make you obese, because the resulting hostility can literally slow down your metabolism.

Meaning: You won’t just gain weight because you start eating your feelings in the form of Ben & Jerry’s—such relationship conditions can actually affect the way your body processes fat in the food you eat.

Update: The First Official ‘Instagram Couple’ Is Married 

Last fall, we filled you in on a couple who basically summed up The Times in their love story: Boy sees girl’s Instgram photos and comments on them; girl investigates boy through social media, boy and girl eventually meet, date, fall in love and get engaged. You know. Like they do.

Well folks, in case you were wondering if that worked out, it did:

VIDEO: There Was a Proposal At Chestnut Hill’s Harry Potter Festival! 

So this past weekend, there was a Harry Potter Festival in Chestnut Hill (which, how did I miss that?), and one festival-attending groom-to-be thought it would be the perfect spot to propose to his new bride-to-be!

Evan Yeatts and Abbey Waltmire met the week before both of their first semesters as grad students at Penn—Abbey, who was just starting the school’s Social Policy program, accidentally crashed Evan’s Engineering School-only event at a bar near campus. Soon after that, they attended last year’s Harry Potter Festival and had a great time, so he figured it’d be the perfect place to pop the question this time around.

He got her during the Sorting Hat demonstration. (Clever!) Take a look.

Congrats to Evan and Abbey!

There are quite a few variations on the wedding reception dinner, and at least as many reasons to go with one over the other. Maybe you’ve got a giant guest list for a celebration you’re starting later in the evening, and it just makes sense to go with a cocktail party. If your wedding is very formal and traditional, chances are you’ll do a seated, multi-course dinner—and if you’re throwing a rustic outdoor celebration, family style is such a sweet way to serve your meal.
