The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE! Off-Broadway AND in Chicago!

Two, two, two giveaways in one!

For the first time ever, we’re hosting giveaways for a show in two cities at once!

That’s right, fair readers, this week’s giveaway will have two winners, one to see the brand new theatrical rom-com Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus in NYC, and one to see it in Chi-Town.

If you’ve never heard of the book on which this new play is based, then, well, you’re probably single.  And probably will be for the rest of eternity.

The book, a gigundo best seller, which is about how to communicate with the opposite sex, seems perfect fodder for date night entertainment.  And I’m not surprised the show is sweeping the country (in addition to the productions in NYC and in Chicago, it’s also touring our fair country as well).

I’ve read it myself, and it has without a doubt helped me out of a few delicate situations on my path to wedded bliss (“Why, sure hon, I can see why you’d want me to make the bed thirty minutes before we get into it, and I would be happy to do that for you.  Would you like a foot massage and an Orange Julius from the mall?”).

Yep, the book gave me great advice.

What’s the best relationship advice you’ve ever received?  Or what advice would you give to someone else?

Comment below with your wise words and one of you will win tickets in NYC and one of you will win tickets in Chicago (tell us what city you’re in so we can award them appropriately).

Ready, set . . . comment!

    The advice I give my nieces n nephews when they marry n have kids is to continue to make time for dating each other at least monthly – I’ve seen my siblings n friends put their lives on hold once they had kids saying they never have time, but I contend if it’s important, one should make time regardless.

  • Lana Matrai says:

    Communication is extremely important in marriage. Even when you argue, you need to show respect for your spouse. I’m in NY.

  • Johnny Tek says:

    (NYC) — Always look both ways before crossing the road, but once you take your first step, don’t stop until you get to the other side or else you’ll get hit by a car. You want to pursue your love? That’s fine, but make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into, and don’t half ass it because you never know when a missed opportunity will hit you with regret, just like that car on the road.

  • Brad Duffy says:

    Put your mother-in-law first! How is that for advice!. I’m on the wrong coast, but that doesn’t stop me from heading to either city.

  • Nancy Paris says:

    No matter how angry you are, never say anything hurtful to the person you love. You never want to be like Cher singing, “If I Could Turn Back Time.”

  • Genn Gralak says:

    Why don’t they do a gay version: Men are from Mars, Men are from Mars? I’m in Chicago

  • Lil says:

    Would love to win “Men are from Mars…” Aka: a USER MANUAL FOR MEN.

  • Lil says:

    Would love to win this! “Men are from Venus…” is probably the closest thing out there to a MEN USER MANUAL!

  • Charlie says:

    (In NYC) Make sure you work on yourself and doing what makes you happy before worrying about finding “the right one”. And even after getting into a relationship, never lose sight of who you are individually. The “right one” will embrace your individual interests and not make you feel like you have to sacrifice them to stay together

    My Aunt Joanne’s wisdom regarding her husband: ” I don’t care where he gets his appetite as long as he comes home to eat!”
    –New York

  • Cheryl says:

    When I first got married my neighbor who had been married almost 40 years told me never let your husband know all the things you really can do. Once they know you can do something it becomes your job. She was a wise woman.

  • Eva Mack says:

    NYC… the difference is what makes each needed… be useful… enjoy the adventure

  • Martha says:

    Love each other.

  • Lisa Weiss says:

    The best relationship advice I ever received was this: treat your partner better than you want to be treated, and expect him to treat you the same. If he can’t, he doesn’t value you as much as he should. If he does, keep him. And never forget you have to always work at making him feel valued.

  • Cara says:

    My advice – Stop Playing Games, it’s all about honesty.

    -Cara (NYC)

  • Love is the quintessentially mutual endeavor between 2 people. Infuse mutuality into the union, temper it with tolerance and understanding and revel in the synergy!

  • Janet Kowal says:

    Never let your job or career come before your family. I’m in New York.

  • Crystal Carter says:

    A strong marriage rarely has two strong people in it at the same time. Each partner take a turn to be strong when the other person feels weak, and I think that’s true in all partnerships, gay or straight.

  • Dpham says:

    (Chicago) Never go to bed angry!

  • Michael Mills says:

    The three most important things in any relationship are empathy, self-control and personal responsibility. From that comes the foundation for everything else – communication, trust, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion and more.

  • Ascenza Montalbano says:

    The best piece of advice I have ever received was from the woman who performed my wedding ceremony. She told us “never go to bed angry.” No matter what is going on, no matter how upset you are or how much the other person may have messed up…before going to sleep take five minutes to remember why you love them and why you married them. Tell them that, and then if that’s all you can do go to sleep…but never go to bed angry because you will hate yourself if the last words you say to each other are in anger. BEST advice, and after 8 years of marriage (and 18 years together!) it has gotten us through a lot!

  • Patrick says:

    I think just knowing yourself, your value, what you have to offer, and where you can grow is incredibly important!

  • Alexa B. says:

    Best advice from my Dad: “Relationships require constant nurturing, especially after the “newness” wears off. But, when you find someone you can be honest with and vice versa, and both people are committed to making it work, there is nothing better.”

  • Joe Carraro says:

    TRUST has to be its basis.

  • Cheryl Dzubak says:

    Just be yourself and go into any relationship without expectations. Take it a day at a time.

  • Michele says:


    Sometimes, the wisest thing you can do is listen to a close friend. Those who aren’t involved daily in your relationship see things differently. If they give you advice, consider it seriously and carefully. After 15 years in an on-again off-again relationship, I should have listened to my friend at year 8 and let it go. Neither of us were getting anything out of it and we’d have both been better off years before if I had listened, considered, and acted sooner.
