Sometime in the next week or so, I’m going to begin a post series on love and marriage.

Conversation tonight called my attention to this post on marital fidelity, which was, at the time, a post that made me rather anxious.

I’m rather less nervous about it today, but it does embody a frankness that I intend to continue into the upcoming series.  I’m sufficiently deluded to believe that I can make a difference in the direction of Western civilization.

So stay with me, won’t you?

  1. Can’t wait and I may even do some rebuttals on my blog, depending on my reaction to your posts.

  2. Rebuttals is not the right word, I meant continued discussions.

  3. I sometimes say that the most striking difference between grown-up problems and children’s problems is that when you’re a child, you know what the right thing to do is, you just don’t want to do it. And when you’re an adult, you want to do the right thing very much, it’s just hard to tell what that is.

    I think making a marriage work is an interesting exception. It’s not hard to identify what makes a marriage successful. Too many people just don’t want to put the time and effort in.

    And part of that is born of people allowing themselves to perceive alternatives. Your spouse has to be the best one. S/he can’t be the best one so far.

    Lots to talk about. Probably starting a week from tomorrow. I’ll announce it ahead of time.
