    Commitment Is Overrated

    As the cultural war on marriage continues, barrages of white-hot contempt are released with every new celebrity divorce and Beltway sex scandal. Yet the critics of marriage, those considering it a biological illusion and social imposition because 50% end in failure, don’t take their argument to its obvious and tragic conclusion. While many sociologists and […]

    The resurrection of a deadbeat dad

    I’m beside myself with anger, frustration and fear. My ex was an abusive man – emotionally, verbally, physically, and financially ruined both our one son and myself.

    Keeping dry the torches of evil passions: children and sexual purity

    I lost my virginity at nineteen. By modern standards that’s disturbingly puritanical.  It’s even more alarming when one considers that my sexual education was a fifteen-minute film during the 7th grade featuring animated penises and a cartoon vagina. This speedy entrance is nothing I’m overly ashamed of though I don’t shout it from the church […]

    Abortion and the failure of men

    He was freaking. His future had vanished in a puff of disposable diapers and sleepless nights. Their relationship, ornamental by nature, was at it’s best quid pro quo. It was the view of each other’s material advantages that kept the romance going. The sex was good but not ‘death do us part’ good. There was […]
