Finding Oneness (Not Sameness) in Marriage

First, my apology for this longer-than-normal Wisdom for Men post. This one intends to dispel the notion that marriage is in decline. It also encourages you to find “oneness” in your marriage but also show how oneness can apply to all of your relationships. Recently, my wife and I recently celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary, which reminded me of a saying related to marriage and —sadly, oftentimes divorce. It goes like this: “Over time, some spouses can become so similar that one of them is no longer necessary.” Now, I’d like to believe the comment was said “tongue-in-cheek” since it takes “two to tango” as the saying goes. However, I believe that marriage –or any relationship for that matter, is at its best when it finds “oneness” rather than a “sameness” that males it seem like one of you is unnecessary.   Dispelling the Myths about Marriage Contrary to popular

June is Men’s Health Awareness Month

It’s also National Men’s Health Month, which highlights the importance of male physical and mental health.

Some experts refer to as a “silent epidemic” due to the lack of public awareness and policy debate of the health

Honoring Your Father (and Mother)

This weekend is Father’s Day in which we celebrate father figures and the important role they play in families. June is also National Fathers Awareness Month, which highlights the importance of fatherhood. But this year something really bugs me. Why have we lost focus on the importance of fathers? I’d suggest we return to honoring fathers as much as we do mothers. Both are important to children, families, and society so let’s build up and respect good dads just as much as we do moms.   OK, I may be more sensitive this year after losing my dad last April and my mother several years ago. Maybe I’m still grieving. But Father’s Day and Mother’s Day is important to me. Not just because I am a parent, but to remember my parents. It’s also a day to honor my in-laws, who continue to show our family what love and marriage
