Time is an equal and non-redeemable commodity. That is a great sentence but why is that important and what exactly does it mean?

The fact is that we, as human beings, are chemical animals, and there are some chemicals we really like. Some people may like nicotine or alcohol or chocolate, but every single one of us likes something called oxytocin. No, don’t panic, it is not something illegal that you buy on the street corner. Oxytocin is the drug our bodies produce when something very specific happens.

Our bodies produce oxytocin when we are in the company of friends, family or loved ones, and oxytocin makes us feel very, very good. We are happy to sit and watch TV with our friends, doing nothing, saying nothing, just sitting there watching TV. The longer we spend with friends the better we feel. It's one of the reasons we invite friends to our wedding.

Relationships are hard, but it is good to remember that nothing is as hard as it looks. So if you want to reignite that spark in your relationship, here are some simple steps that are guaranteed to work.

1. A couple that sweats together, stays together. Couples who exercise together have an increased physical attraction, and it improves your emotional bond. So go running, join a gym, or take up a sport together.

2. Be flirtatious. Being sexually suggestive and affectionate adds excitement to a romance. Remember when you first met. Rekindle that feeling with innuendos and sexy messages. A post- it note on a pillow or a flirty text will do wonders for your love life.

It sounds romantic, getting married on a Spanish beach, or in an Italian vineyard, and many couples are opting for a foreign wedding. The good news is that at least 60% of Irish people said they would travel for a wedding abroad.

The bad news of course is that if you invited 100 people to your wedding, that means 40 of them won’t be prepared to travel to your wedding. The people least likely to travel are the elderly, so your granny most probably won’t be attending. Couples with small children may also decide that the effort of traveling with a baby might not be worth it.

Depending on the cost, some of your younger friends, those who are studying or just starting work might not be able to afford it. If your wedding is a short hop on a budget flight to Spain this is most probably not a problem, but a short stay in a Swiss ski resort for your wedding may not be in everyone's budget. In the same survey, guests made it clear that if they are traveling abroad for a wedding then the couple shouldn’t expect wedding gifts as well.

David Kavanagh tells Ciara what happens when a child has absent parents.

An absent parent refers to a non-custodial parent who is obligated to pay partial child support and who is physically absent from the child's home. The term also refers to a parent who has abandoned his or her child and failed to maintain contact with the child.

“There would be fewer absent fathers if straight men were turned on only by women with whom they would not mind having children." - Mokokoma Mokhonoana

If music be the food of love. Bands, DJ’s, singers, string quartets.

If music be the food of love…

It can be quite intimidating the first time you go online and type in “wedding music Ireland” into the internet search bar. Bands, DJ’s, singers, string quartets and uilleann pipers. Which one do you choose, where do you start, and what on earth are uilleann pipers?

A lot of what you choose will depend on the type of wedding you want to have. A traditional wedding, a rustic country wedding or an urban hipster wedding will all require a different approach to the music, but there are a few standard boxes to tick before you decide.
