Do you know any books on romance after marriage?

I used to swallow books afterer books when I was younger, but I can`t remember any describing a romantic relationship of a couple AFTER marriage. At least not as a main theme of a book. Does it mean there is NO romance after marriage at all? OR does it mean people do not believe in that? Or they do not find it interesting enough to write or read about it???

Even fairy-tales of many folks end up with the wedding ceremony. At least in the Russian and Western literature which I read. As far as I know it is different in Indian literature. Any information about African or Asian literature?

Thank you for the feedback. If anyone knows a good book on romance after marriage  – please feel free to list it here!

What is so special about Russian women?

Published March 24, 2008 by sj

Vodka, oil, weapons and… Russian women – these are the objects of Russian national pride. I wonder if there is any other country in this world where its women are considered the national objects of value?

Being able to watch Russian women in their home country and abroad for quite a time, and being a Russian woman myself I want to share with you some results of my long-time observations on the subject of their nature. But first let me make one very important statement:

Every country gives its special colour/flavour to its citizens, due to the geographical, historical, cultural or many other reasons. Thus, I personally consider the women of every country a special object of value, kind of a priceless commodity, the treasure.

So what is there the about Russian women?

Physical beauty

Face: Russian women are beautiful (at least this is what they hear all the time), they are aware of their beauty, they like to make themselves beautiful and they enjoy being beautiful. “Beauty will save the world” – is one of the most favorite Russian quotes apparently by F.Dostoevski.

The secret of that special beauty lays in quite a wild mixture of the East and West. Read the rest of this entry →

Don`t forget your marriage anniversary!

Published February 15, 2008 by axinia

Do men really inclined to forget their marriage anniversary?– that is at least what one can see in films or read in the books… Are they just more egoistical? Or simply because they are less “past-oriented”? (this is an argument my wise husband gave me).

In fact, that can be petty much true, for men are generally more future-oriented fellows (the subtle reason is that men are more on the right-side, towards future. Women – on the so called left side, past-oriented and emotional).

Whatever is the reason, I actually wanted to share with you this lovely videoclip by Abhay Sopori  – Santoor Maestro Music Composer Dancing Dewdrops:

 And don´t forget your marriage anniversary! 🙂

(my one is coming soon next month)

An Ode to Sari

Ten years ago I heard in one speech of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi that western cloths are actually rather ugly and poor, it looks like variety but it is not. And the Indian sari is such a masterpiece of an everlasting beauty. At that time I could not but disagree as I was very much into fashion and designer stuff, hungrily catching every news from the catwalk. Time passed, and I managed to visit the fabulous land of incsent-flavoured India and to experience the magic of sari… Read the rest of this entry →

Freunschaft zwischen Männer und Frauen?

Das ist eine der Fragen, die in den letzten Jahrhunderten die hübschen Köpfe der westlichen Gesellschaft beschäftigen: können Männer und Frauen einfach gute Freunde sein, oder ist da immer nur ein gut verstecktes sexuelles Interesse dabei?

Die Meinung scheint ziemlich eindeutig zu sein: solche Freundschaft gibt es nicht! – sagen uns verzweifelte Frauen, schreiende Magazine und hypnotisierendes TV. Sie ahnen wohl nicht, dass der Großteil der Weltbevölkerung, nämlich das gesamte Asien und arabische Länder dieses Phänomen längst als „Bruder-Schwester-Beziehung” kennt und ehrt.
