Enter the Ring – Fight for Your Marriage

Play

Today we have two very special guests, D A and Elicia Horton.  They have been fighting for their marriage for over 15 years and share some insights from a millennial perspective on the challenges marriages face.

On our show today, you’ll learn how to fight the distractions and temptations of the world, instead of one another and what it takes to be victorious.

As more marriages dissolve, government spending on social welfare programs goes up.  When people can’t count on each other, they tend to look for governmental solutions to their problems.  By fighting to save your marriage, you’re doing more good than what is measured by your own personal happiness.

Who’s In Charge?

This is our anniversary week and this is what we looked like 35 years ago.   In case you can't tell, this is the moment when we got into my groom's pick up truck.  He was getting ready to drive me away from the Church as his new bride moments after our wedding.  SOMEONE put shaving cream all over the steering wheel and there was confetti coming out of the blower all over the place.

Understanding the murky waters of our Nation’s marriage policy comes down to grasping who’s in charge. There is a lot more the non-judicial branches can do to put some monsters back in their boxes. Fortunately, there are some options available. The only question remaining is whether the current office holders will wield the authority vested in them by the Constitution.

After the live talk, you will get to hear some bonus material to help you think through marijuana legislation.

Should Government Get Out of The Marriage Business?

Should Government Get Out of The Marriage Business 1

Back when the government was functioning to protect our property and to define who belonged to whom, I was supportive of government’s record keeping. Now that the US Supreme Court is trying to turn marriage into something unknown and murky, the only point left is to use this as a registry to dole out benefits to anyone who claims to be in a relationship.

Anyone who is on Facebook knows that there is a relationship status that can change as frequently as one wants to find other close friends. I saw a post that said, after changing your relationship status more than three times, it needs to default to “It’s Complicated”. Continue reading

As we prepare to celebrate our Independence Day, it may seem hard to maintain our optimism when we consider how much of our independence we have given away.

You may ask, “How have we have given it away?” By giving the power to govern to the Supreme Court, and by giving so much power to the national government, and by giving away jurisdiction over education to state and federal governments. Yet there are some reasons for optimism. Continue reading
