Anyone we might choose to marry would certainly be a little wrong for us. I believe it’s wise to be appropriately pessimistic, because perfection in human beings is not really attainable this side of heaven. Nevertheless, we sometimes encounter couples who are able to keep the magic happening in their relationships in spite of the [...]

Christian churches often think of themselves as the last line of defense for marriage. For those Christians untouched by divorce, marriage is the sacred union ordained by God, it binds one man and one woman together so the “two become one flesh” until death do they part.

Truth without Grace is called judgment. It is “The law” and it is cold, angry, judgmental and impossible to live with. Truth without grace will turn off those you interact with, and it is the easiest thing in the world for Christians to fall into.

I’ve been forced by the circumstances of several friends to rethink my position on the subject of using external authority to bring about the fair and equitable enforcement of a post-marriage agreement involving the visitation rights of a non-custodial parent with his or her children. I’m including these thoughts in a new version of our [...]
