There is one key component of every single emotionally destructive relationship. If this one thing is present in your relationship, you are being emotionally abused. Period.
One of the best articles on emotional abuse--Natalie is finally telling her story, starting at the beginning. And it's riveting. After writing my posts this week on husbands who have no empathy, this really resonated.
So true! I think one of the key things is that people don't realize how much work they will have to put into a divorce--just sorting out the money and the custody and all the work of split vacations, etc. Put that work into the marriage and see if it can be saved! (I know some can't and shouldn't be saved. But many can be. And we need to realize that we'll work regardless. The question is where do you want to work?)
News outlets around the world have each picked up on a blog titled 'Biblical Gender Roles', a website which claims that men should not tolerate their wives refusing sex, and that husbands should invoke fear in their wives.
So true--the website claims there is no such thing as marital rape. We need to speak up against this horrible abuse of Scripture.

We need to learn MUTUAL submission and how to be a true team. Anything else continues the curse; it does not bring freedom from Christ.
Not every couple needs marriage counseling. If these 10 things are present in your relationship, don't call a counselor.
Great article! And I agree--these are 10 signs of a healthy marriage. Doesn't mean you SHOULDN'T see a counselor--often people can benefit from a "tune up" every now and then. But these things should be present in a healthy relationship!
Stable marriages really do affect wealth--key quote: The public sector can attempt to act as family when families fail, but this neither promotes human flourishing nor balanced budgets. Some things are irreplaceable.
It’s Wednesday, the day when we always talk marriage! Today please welcome Arlene Pellicane, author of 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Wife, as she shares great insight into how we choose to spend our time as a couple (and as a family).
