Divorced NOT Damaged For singles who have been divorced, it can feel like you always have a scarlet “D” on your chest for “Divorced.” The Christian community can often be the worst offenders of this, labeling you as “Damaged” but redeemed. Divorce was not God’s plan for any marriage, but it happens. Jesus even addresses it in Matthew 19:1-9, saying it was because of mans hardness of hearts that divorce even happens. This blog is

You are both casually talking about building a life together and dreaming big dreams for your future. Pause.

Another Closed Door

When my marriage of 14 years ended against my wishes, I drove to and from work, often not remembering how I got there.

Marriage isn’t the Finish Line

The big day is here! Here comes the bride all dressed in white. The groom dressed to the nines in his rented tux stands fidgeting at the front to begin a ceremony that moves even the hardest of hearts to tears.

The Beta Marriage: How Millennials Approach ‘I Do’

Repost from Time Magazine You could say I beta-tested my relationship. It’s a joke, kind of — except that when it comes to millennials and marriage, the beta test may be par for the course. And really, why wouldn’t it be? For a generation reared on technology, overwhelmed by choice, feedback and constant FOMO, isn’t testing a marriage, like we test a username, simply … well, logical? The findings of a new survey certainly reveal so. In conjunction
