So my wife and I have been married for 10 years. We're both in our mid 30's and she can hear the biological clock ticking. We both feel like we want to have kids and we shouldn't wait much longer.…Continue
"True, I agree 100%. But the issue is a man who is not celibate by choice because of conviction, but of one that does not want children who is in fact selfish and somewhat "incomplete". I think that is the gist of the thought here. I never…"
"My kids have been the best thing in my life next to my wife. I can't imagine what I would be like with out them. I wont lie and say it has been easy but was it worth it definitely. It can and will be tough but it is also the most rewarding…"
"There are many WRONG times to have children but the time is rarely ever "Right."
So don't wait around for that to happen.
If you or your spouse currently enjoy & would miss any one of the following:
A) Free Time
B) A disposable…"
"Are you saying staying celibate makes them manly? Never knowing a woman, never sacrificing for the seed of their own loins? Never knowing the release and fully loving and giving of your own body in love(I don't believe in the gift of the cross,…"
"Well, I sure as hell was a man before I had a kid. (And a good thing I didn't wait until I had him to become one.)
For that matter, so was Pope John Paul II. Jesus Christ. Several others who never had children. Lordy."
"A man is not a Man until he is also a Father, and a Daddy. Perhaps you find it an extra fulfillment, but some men choose not to have children for various reasons and others are unable. I would not say that they are "not men"."
"A man is not a Man until he is also a Father, and a Daddy.
What is life without the joy of a baby daughter or son, lifting arms to you as you arrive home from fighting lions on the urban Serengheti, with a smile as wide as his/her face and…"
"I was going to say the same thing. Putting term limits on candidates won't change anything as long as money is still being spent by special interests groups and corporations to elect our officials. And hold on to your hats folks. A case coming…"
"It is not possible to both have a leader in a relationship and have the two partners be equal. If there is a leader, then the other is the led. And there cannot be equality between those who lead and those who follow."
"I understand what you are saying but it is still a flawed analogy. You say:
"husbands should treat their wives like Christ treats the Church, and wives should treat their husbands like the Church treats Christ."
But the way the Church…"
"Are lapsed Christians allowed to comment here? I hope so. Because I've heard this explanation a lot and I've never understood how it makes sense and I wanted to say why.
On the one hand, you're saying that having the woman submit to…"
"An interesting idea, but having lived in New Hampshire a few years ago, I'd say it will be impossible for 20,000 people to find jobs there. Heck it would be impossible for 2,000 people to find jobs there. Small state-not a booming economy."
"Regardless of what you do, my heart goes out to you. You're in pain, and neither decision will remove it.
BTW: sounds like the "infatuation" is wearing off and true love may not have developed. But I am not living your life, and…"
"Dude, just because you are in love, or just because you are attracted does NOT mean you are a good MATCH for each other! Believe it or not, there are many people who are really horrible matches who are hormonally in love.
Reality is this: …"
Ok I need some advice. I've been putting off writing this online but I need some impartial opinion that isn't from a friend or family member who's unintentionally biased by default.So I'm engaged to a girl. Been together a few years. Both around 30.First year or so was an absolute blast, had the best time. A year or so ago we went through hell. Relocations, lost jobs, got new jobs, and we did two bad things… spent ALL our time together after relocating, and argued a LOT. So now, six months or…See More
