Wife Advice: Whose (If Any) Do You Take?

The other Sunday at church I heard a bit of “advice” that I can honestly say I’ve never heard before. While mentioning how Abraham sent his servant out to find a wife for Isaac and how Rebekah offered the servant and his camels water (Gen. 24 if you care to read it), the preacher said, “If you want to be a wife, you have to be a wife before you become one.

Sexy Back

"The gentlemen would like to buy your drinks" the Bartender tells my friend and I. He nods to the right, where the three handsome young guys from Dubai are sitting. My friend and I hadn't said more than two words to the guys before, but they've politely asked the Bartender to charge them for our drinks.  "Thank you," we say fully expecting the drink to now obligate us to a lengthy conversation about whatever it is 25 year-olds talk about these days: Jay-Z?  The "lifestyle brand" they're trying to get funding for?

If you’re a celebrity or someone of great worth, you know that someone loves you for you when that person is willing to sign a pre-nuptial agreement.Since most of us bring nothing into our marriages except love, a little baggage and some life insurance, pre-nups are not something most of us even think about – even though signed agreements between married couples, are becoming more popular among regular folks....more
