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…"
"Why does it need to expand further into society? Why is it your responsibility to take care of me, and mine yo take care of you? How about we all take care of our own damn selves and leave everyone else alone so long as they are not hurting anyone…"
"I too made some financial mistakes in my past...
Without knowing the details (nor do I want them) of your finances it's hard to point you in a specific, calculated direction. I would start with just paying the basics first and…"
"He's a simple, hard-working, poorly educated man who doesn't want to lose his ranch and way of life to a government he sees intent on doing just that, as proven by the disappearance of the once dozens of ranches around him in the not so…"
"I don't have a problem with occasional use, hey, carbon monoxide is bad for us too, but buying in bulk hints at frequent downing of the stuff.
Yea, sugar I hear is better, just like margarine is actually worse for you than butter."
"I find it unconscionably arrogant to be so enamored with your own ideology to believe it should literally be imposed on everybody else, against their will, for their own good.
