Q: My boss makes me very uncomfortable, because he keeps trying to get close to me. Now he's saying he's unhappy in his marriage and thinks we're meant for each other. I don't like where this is headed. I need the job, but what should I do?
If you are prone to one heartbreak after another when it comes to relationships it may be time to rethink the common belief that dating is about finding "the one" who will complete you, said author and pastor Naeem Fazal during a recent sermon.
A bigamist and his two women are fighting Montana's bigamy laws. Nathan Collier says he was inspired to sue the state to legalize bigamy by the Supreme Court Obergefell decision constitutionalizing homosexual "marriage."
I wish it never happened to anyone and I hope it never happens to you, but in my job I hear it almost every week. It's a word we are afraid of, one which can destroy, and certainly a word which breaks many hearts - and sadly - many marriages never recover when it occurs.
In my work with marriages, I've identified 5 of the major obstacles to making a great ONE out of two very different people. Sometimes simply understanding what obstacles exist and knowing they are common to most marriages - you are not alone - can help us learn to see them not as obstacles, but as God-given opportunities to grow a stronger "one flesh".
A few days ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states. This is a defining moment for our nation.Long before our government came into existence, marriage was created by Almighty God-the One who created man and woman.
If I had a nickel for every time a liberal said it's a slippery slope fallacy to claim that the legalization of homoerotic marriage would necessarily result in the legal recognition of plural unions, I would be a very rich woman.
This is where you must start in teaching your children about sex. Sex is not fundamentally a biological, physiological activity. Sexuality is a necessary aspect of God's purpose for man to occupy and control the earth for the glory of God.
Why didn't someone tell me how hard it is to be a single mother? I thought getting a divorce would be the answer to all my problems, but I was wrong. Life sure hasn't turned out the way I hoped it would.
Ladies, there's a secret your husband probably won't share. He may not even like that I'm sharing it. It's not that he doesn't want you to know. He does. But, it's hard to admit sometimes. Or, difficult to find the right words. But, I feel you need to know. It could make a huge difference in your marriage. Here goes:
for us as Christians, there's the most concerning news: even within the church, divorce continues at a high percentage. There is an ongoing debate as to the actual numbers, but they're generally accepted to range from thirty to fifty percent. From a biblical vantage point, divorce is dangerously high, but it's part of our human, sin nature-something the Bible addresses throughout the Old and New Testaments.
The very fact that the U.S. Supreme Court is even considering a ruling on same-sex marriage reveals the depraved moral state of our nation. Just a decade ago, no one would have predicted the rapid ascent and outsized influence of the gay lobby. According to the most recent U.S. census, gay couples represent less than one-half of 1 percent of the population. By 2006, 33 states had laws modeled after the 1996 federal Defense of Marriage Act.
The Supreme Court is on the verge of making one of the most momentous decisions in its 226-year history. On trial is the definition of marriage-at least as it's legally recognized in the United States. God's Word is clear on the subject: It's the sacred union of one man and one woman for life.
I want to get married, but my boyfriend says we need to live together to see if it's going to work out. He says all our friends do it, and I guess he's right, but I'm not sure I want to go down this road. What is your advice?
Come now, Holy Spirit, and speak through Your humble servant. Let this prayer be Your prayer - truth in love, salt and light.And war.Lord Jesus, ours is a nation in rebellion. Evil is good and good evil. We are as drunkards, teetering at cliff's edge - haughty, prideful, defiant and soft.
According to the Pew Research Center: Religion & Public Life, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday in Obergefell v. Hodges, a landmark case that will determine whether the Constitution guarantees gay and lesbian couples the same right to marry as opposite-sex couples. The case, which will probably be decided in June, likely will hinge on whether a majority of justices believe that the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause guarantees same-sex couples the right to marry.
Over the years, through counseling training and actual counseling - and learning from my wife - I've observed some things. And, I've realized some men simply don't know them - or don't realize how important they are to their wife.
This is a guest post by my friend Jennifer Degler. Jennifer attends the church I pastor and was actually on the search team that brought me to the church. She is a Ph.D., a licensed psychologist, life coach, and co-author of No More Christian Nice Girl: When Just Being Nice-Instead of Good-Hurts You, Your Family, and Your Friends. A frequent speaker at women's events and marriage retreats, she also maintains a counseling practice in central Kentucky
I wrote a blog post on winning back the heart of a wife several years ago. (Read it HERE.) The post was written in reponse to the dozens of times I had given the same advice to men who had hurt their wives in some severe way...mostly affair type situations...where it seems the wives heart has left the relationship.
recently posted "7 Ways a Wife Injures a Husband...Without Even Knowing It". It's been a popular post. Thankfully, I've not seemed to make a lot of women mad...a few...but not many that I have heard from...yet. We will see how the men respond with this post.
