Marriage is Not About Being in Love

Her name tag read, "I'm John Smith's ex-wife.  If you want to know why, just ask me." The bitter scorn worn on her blouse like a scarlet letter. "He left her for some lady at his church". I don't even know him and the words sink like a rock in the pit of my stomach.  The ...

Contradeception: The Public Nature of Marital Privacies

Just when I thought I had covered every inch of the issue of birth control, Rebekah Curtis proved me wrong with this brilliant piece published in Touchstone Magazine.

"Does it fit under the 'nutritional' part of our food budget?  Dark chocolate and hazelnuts--I'm thinking 'yes'." He smiled--tossed it in our shopping cart. Our "date" this week was getting groceries together...with three little ones in tow 😉  Those three little girls--the physical reminder of the love we've made...that's romantic enough for me. I go ahead to the ...

Gary Thomas' article "Anyway Love" tells of a woman whose husband had continually disappointed her with his insensitivity.  Even after she gave him books about "how to love your wife" he didn't change.

May I think the best of him in every circumstance, May I laugh and sing and make our lives a dance. May I build him up with the words I say, May I give him reason to look forward to the day. May I be quick to look over his mistakes, And thank him for the efforts that he makes. May ...

Marriage: A Woman’s Helping Hand

"A woman’s helping hand smooths out all the snags and wrinkles, adds the sprinkle of sugar and spreads the butter, kisses the wound, cools the fever, nurses the hunger, and finds the missing. And somehow she manages to do all of it all at once with a baby around her legs, dishes ...
