Occasionally someone ventures outside the cultural marriage norms and makes the case for getting married young, but generally, it’s ingrained deep within us all that there’s an acceptable age to marry, and to do so before that is unwise. But is it? We admit there’s an epidemic of adults who are over-sized children though the full weight of it hasn’t fully been realized. But we’re slow … Continue reading Why We Should Encourage Our Kids to Marry Young
For years I’ve been saying that once you open the door to redefine marriage, where do you stop? Well, that’s already starting to happen since the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decision to legalize gay “marriage” in June. After all, if “love wins,” as gay “marriage” activists say, then by this line of thinking why shouldn’t “love win” in cases of polygamy, bestiality, … Continue reading AiG: Is Polygamy Next?
Long before I was even considering marriage, a Titus 2 woman shared with me the pain of confessing her sexual history to her future husband. “It was hard,” she told me. “We both cried. We both repented. It made us a stronger couple.” I remember being grateful for her openness with me, but also feeling that her story didn’t really apply to me. My romantic … Continue reading Holmes: How to Handle Your Spouse’s Sexual Past
[I]n the larger secular culture, the big question is whether adultery really matters or not. Marriage and monogamy have been subverted from an array of cultural forces. Moral revolutionaries declared war on monogamy, declaring it to be unrealistic, patriarchal, repressive, and antiquated. Popular culture and entertainment glorified virtually any experiment in sexual gratification and often portrayed adultery as the victory of personal autonomy and freedom. … Continue reading Mohler: Ashley Madison and the Death of Monogamy
This is a game-changer. Talk about “an old wives’ tale.” You’ve heard it said that 1) 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce; 2) most marriages that do happen to make it are, nonetheless, unhappy, and 3) Christians are just as likely to divorce as non-believers. These claims, long understood to be research-based facts, never quite sat right with me. Still, admittedly, while these … Continue reading 50% Divorce Rate in Church is Misleading Propoganda
Is fatherhood becoming a relic of the past? The sad absence of fathers in American families is pervasive and has been growing for decades. In the 1960s, less than 10 percent of American children were born to single women, but as of 2013, the number had increased to 41 percent. Among Hispanic children, 54 percent are born to unwed mothers, and the figure is 72 … Continue reading The Daily Signal: Fatherhood and Marriage Bring Out the Best in Men

A Texas lawmaker is calling for a special session to address marriage licensing in the state. Rep. David Simpson, R-Longview, requested Monday that Gov. Greg Abbott call a special session of the 84th Legislature following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states. Simpson said the court had “cheapened” the institution of marriage and called the ruling an aberration. In a … Continue reading Texas Lawmaker Requests Special Session on Marriage Licensing
The Supreme Court’s decision today redefining marriage to include couples of the same sex is wholly illegitimate and unlawful. A nullity. Worthy only to be disobeyed. Anyone who says otherwise — that the rule of law requires recognition of same-sex marriage — is committing a fraud. And any State official — like Governor Robert Bentley of Alabama — who says that his oath of office … Continue reading Western Journalism: Obergefell v. Hodges: Illegitimate, Unlawful, And A Fraud On The American People
The Federal Government seems bent on destroying Western Civilization. After a long litany of laws, policies, and court opinions designed to undermine and attack the family and Christianity, the final blow could be decreed in just the next several days. I speak of the impending ruling on homosexual marriage.
