"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:

"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.)

"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.

"I'm a teacher and I have a tattoo "where the sun don't shine." Generally, I am repulsed by prominent tattoos on women ... especially if they are in positions of authority. Doesn't bother me on he-man types of men ... but I…"
"I am grateful for the excellent advice I have received and appreciate the time you took to write it. I enjoyed reading all of your comments and it will be of great use to me.

"This is a great analysis of it. I just have a hard time in really setting aside Sunday and making it the Sabbath. Something always crops up, or i never prepare well during week and then Sunday rolls around and we've forgotten something at…"
"I agree. It seems like the type of thing that some people get and then they may receive negative feedback (just or not) or they may just feel guilty about making a dumb choice. Whereas I don't know that I've ever talked to somebody that…"
