A couple of articles from The Atlantic

Watching an old episode of Frasier that dealt with marriage. At one point, Daphne's mother says this ... You young modern people think marriage is some sort of promenade through paradise, when it's more like a march through Hell with a man strapped to your back and a litter of nasty babies swinging from your teats!

Heh ;) I thought of that when I saw these two articles in The Atlantic today ...

- A recent study shows What makes for a stable marriage. Many factors involved ... interesting, for instance, how the more one spends on the wedding, the more likely one is to end up divorced.

- The Warrior Wives of Evangelical Christianity. An interesting (and depressing and creepy) article on sex and marriage and gender roles ... it's about Evangelicals but it might just as well be about conservative Catholics ..... think Christopher West's Theology of the Body sex classes, JPII's "new" feminism, the US Bishop's resistance to contraception, the upcoming traditionalist marriage meeting at the Vatican ... eeeek!
