Like much else in life, I tolerate and justify my own bad behavior but gripe about it when I witness others engaged in that same annoying habit. Maybe my disproportionate reaction is Freudian. It's as if I'm trying to purge the behavior from my own repertoire.
It's no secret many view Pope Francis as liberal and Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia as conservative. While Archbishop Chaput said such political labels are not useful and flawed, there's certainly a difference between the two men.
In my 16 years of being a stay-at-home-mom, I've had my share of tough days. It's not easy to be the primary caregiver of three kids. Especially with a husband who starts his long commute into NYC around 7 each morning and usually doesn't get home till past 9 each night.
Turn me on With your sweet desire To please - to appease To admire, in this hour. You want- I want. With Our bodies near The pulse of my woman ...
Reflecting on my own upcoming marriage, I don't buy into the idea that I'd be the gentle caregiver preoccupied with the household and children while my husband, the strong breadwinner, occupies his mind with the family's finances and ponders the 'big things' thoughtfully by swirling his scotch.
Somewhere in the middle of my marriage, I gave up. I had built up an inventory of complaints -- Meg's bossiness, my withdrawal from physical contact, our adequate but perfunctory sex life -- but resolving them just seemed too daunting to be in the realm of possibility, so I kept them to myself.
If you've never sat on a stranger's couch with a box of tissues in your lap, bawling your eyes out as a kind-eyed man smiles without judgment or criticism, then you don't know what you're missing.

There are some people who get ugly and abusive when they argue, and there are others who can discuss and argue and be productive.
In a time where opinions around sexual thoughts and feelings are getting more and more extreme the introduction of this new podcast is a welcome step in the right direction. God commands humanity to be fruitful and multiply.
I didn't realize it until there were two of them, until I looked over at Austin one night and realized we are basically roommates chasing a drunk toddler and passing a newborn back and forth in a game of grownup hot potato.
I thought I would take a look at some popular marriage myths, and why I feel like they are full of crap.
Yes, finding the time for romance is a huge struggle, especially when you're exhausted and not feeling it all the time. But let's be honest: that post-sex glow? There's really nothing else like it.
Yes, we were young and naive. We did not fully understand exactly what we were getting ourselves in to. We did not know how difficult it would be to juggle college, full-time work, and babies. But that didn't really matter, because we were absolutely committed to making it work... no matter what.
If I found out that my husband had an Ashley Madison account (it's a site where married people try to meet each other for affairs, for you innocents), I would throw his laptop out the window.
Our love is not bad. Our love is not destroying the world. The most significant threat to the family is failure to recognize all families. If the Pope truly wants to reach out to the marginalized, he should truly open his arms to everyone.
