Julie....would LOVE to debate you. I happen to be one of those that DON"T believe that "great minds think alike". Are you up to the challenge?  Relationships are multi faceted and categories aren't always in the books that all are based on behaviors and social disorders and certain types of sciences. Please challenge my thoughts and intelligence.

These days, more-and-more singles are confused about their #relationship status. They're not even sure if they're on a date or not. Read one woman's story. Do you think the lines are blurred due to texting and other social media?

It just means that "I'm looking for something that is not cliche that is not typical with Hollywood jargon". It means that Gwyneth has developed a new " legal language" for judges to decide settlements in divorce hearings. She's a smart lady who's got access to the best of "new age " councelors that think only in terms of gender when the shoe is generally on the other foot, where the man usually has the money. Good for Gwyneth because she is turning the table which allows her to keep what she has without him taking what he hasn't earned except being married into it. I say "Gwyneth, you go girl" it only takes wording to keep what is yours!
