The Duties of a Father

Recently I have been thinking about fatherhood, in terms of when your children are, well, no longer children. What do you see as the father's role and responsibilities in helping his young adult progeny? How should a father shift from more hands on and rule setting parenting to his new role as more of an adviser or guide to early adulthood?I think an interesting follow up to this discussing which should be a forum in its own right is, how and should the responsibilities and the treatment of…See More

Obesity rates skyrocketing just within a few decades (after the advent of mainstream cable TV apparently). 2. Adult and sexually suggestive entertainment being so widely available - I think this can lower men's sex drive and incentive to be high achievers 3. Too much technological convenience - People drive cars everywhere, and rely on services regularily - physical skills like bartering,…See More

How many marriages and LTRs in this day and age are alive vs dead?

Just curious how many relationships and marriages today do you estimate are dead relationships. Such as a percentage wise, 50% or so.I've personally met more couples who's marriages or relationships seemed dead and based more on expediency than strongness of the relationship, which is a bit discouraging.I think there are some cultural factors which may exacerbate this problem:1. Marriages and love relationships are considered "sacred" culturally - in spite of this there are definitely some…See More
