"My husband and I both wear wrist watches. They are much more convenient for us than a phone for our primary timepieces. He wears a digital Armitron and mine is a basic analog, water resistant Timex Indiglo.
Our two older sons (20 &…"
"My husband and I are together most of the time since he was let go a few years ago. It works out since he is an owl and I am a lark, so we do get some quiet time. Lately I have added a few noncouple things because I felt stagnant.
"The only time it is an issue for me is if I get up to use the loo in the middle of the night and I don't notice the seat is up. That cold porcelain is a real eyeopener! This is not something I blame on my husband."
"Excellent points. #4 is a concern, but as he gets older it has diminished greatly.
I have planted the seed that there are many ways he can serve as a civilian. He is very concerned with how soldiers deal with returning stateside after combat. I told…"

"A chorus we had in church seemed to help me resolve the conflict I feel between needing to be confident (masculine challenge) and to be humble. It was a line about casting our crowns at His feet. We have 'em -- we have confidence…"
"Hm. I'm not sure those girls really lived in our consumerist world, at the heart, or that their soccer-loving brothers do. After all, eating at Mickey D's doesn't form the core of my identity.
Globalization is real,…"
"Hate to break it to you but what you fear is slowly but surely happening.
