Marriage

There's an interesting flurry of discussion about marriage across the Blogosphere. My opinion is that the biggest threat to marriage is the mentality that what is supposed to be a legal contract can be broken at the whim of either party. While I'm opposed to same-sex marriage, I also am apposed to treating marriage vows as some tongue-in-cheek, juvenile promise, rather than a legally binding contract.

Just came across your blog thanks to your nifty England banner, Danny. Great site. And, I agree with you about marriage. With the focus on the dangers of gay marriage, the dangers of "just living together" have flown right past us. This is a much greater threat to the family than gay marriage, in my opinion.

I am also posting on marriage. Specifically the book Created to Be His Help Meet by Debi Pearl that is making it's way around homeschool circles. It is a popular book with a very questionable doctrine. They call it the doctrine of wrongful suffering in silence. It is a damaging doctrine that has the potential to leave women with the idea that as long as they keep quiet and take it their man will start treating them well and maybe even get saved.
