Marriage: What Are We Waiting For?

I was talking with my grandparents last night, and we were discussing how it seems the current trend is to get married at much older ages than back in their time.  They were saying that men need to step up to the plate and stop waiting for the perfect time to get married because that “perfect” time will never come.  There are always going to be money constraints, there are always going to be problems at your job, there are always going to be issues with your family—so if you are waiting for those things to go away or get better, you will be waiting for a while....more

Realizing Purpose Before Letting "The One" Slip Away

Marriage: A Dance of Expansion?

I imagine a marriage as a dance of expansion. As one partner grows and changes, the other must as well. And as both partners grow, so does the marriage itself. Expanding.  Breathing in and exhaling out. A living breathing entity that grows with each breath, relaxes into itself with each exhalation. A marriage is sort of like this. Any relationship is really. Husband and wife. Straight or gay. Lover to lover. Dancing, twirling, sinking, swirling. Falling together in union, and pushing away in expansion. Coming back as one in a way that is bigger, more fulfilling....more

Pure Platinum

Great news I know.So when a gf asked if I was interested in checking out Pure Platinum (PP), a strip joint on a school night you know what my answer was. ...more

Hey Planned Parenthood! Fail to Plan..Plan to Fail

I found out about the 12:00pm  Walk for Choice in my city at 12:15pm.  Seems I'm not the only one.I am " Facebook friends" with Planned Parenthood - both the national and local affiliates.
