There will be no references to sugar daddies or the old ball and chain, no husband will call his wife a battle-ax and not a single woman will pummel her significant other, cartoon-style, with a rolling pin. Instead, the wave of romantic comedies coming to TV this spring will offer up men who read relationship self-help books and never forget an anniversary, women who hog the bed and compete like demons, and couples who talk ceaselessly about meeting...

No sooner are sitcoms pronounced dead, again, than they begin popping up all over, like Whac-a-Moles. This year we have been and will be getting a passel of relationship comedies built around interrelated contrasting sets of couples (and sometimes singles), usually packaged in groups of three, à la "Modern Family," whose success surely helped turn these lights green. There are perhaps more of them than the market can bear, but if any have to go, I would rather it not be "Perfect Couples.

There's no official queen of San Diego's Comic-Con International, but if there were such a coronation, Olivia Munn might be wearing the crown. The 30-year-old actor and television personality — and recent Playboy and Maxim magazine cover girl — has drawn convention floor crowds so outsized that she's become a walking fire hazard. Her pull is poised to grow even stronger during this weekend's convention. In addition to being a co-host of the nerd-nirvana TV series "Attack of the Show!"

"The world has grown suspicious of anything that looks like a happy married life." --from Oscar Wilde's 1892 play, "Lady Windermere's Fan" It's hard to listen to the "ordinary" people who tell all on television talk shows without getting cynical about the institution of marriage.

When visitors leave Pitcairn Island, the natives--all descendants of the mutineers from the Bounty--sing a song called "The Bye and Bye." "It's a tear-jerker," says Gene Carapetyan, who went out in a longboat one day to see a passing freighter off. "I was sitting behind Betty Christian, Tom's wife, and I was crying . . . really sad, because we would be leaving the next day. If you can get to Pitcairn, they know you won't be coming back."

It was the height of Newport Beach's yachting season, the last day of a long Fourth of July weekend, and eight passengers on the Greene Machine were pursuing a school of playful dolphins off the Orange County coast. Then they heard the screams. "My wife! My wife! My wife!" They spotted a shirtless man floating on a body board behind an empty power boat spinning circles in the surf. Quickly, they tossed him a life jacket and summoned the Coast Guard via radio.

Doug and Dana Ridenour appeared to have everything they wanted, all within the hermetic walls of their 20-year marriage. They appeared prosperous, confident and happy. When they died July 29 in what seemed to be a double suicide, they appeared to have made their ultimate decision with mutual certainty. They even made a videotape in which they expressed their enthusiasm over dying well.
