Church promised me that if we kept ourselves pure, married sex would be amazing. But the messages of shame and control lasted long into marriage and did NOTHING to enhance our love-life.

In this interview, Du Mez explains the history of radical m…
 
We are told that "the heart is deceitful above all else and desperately sick." But does the Bible really want us to mistrust our intuition, and only trust the (male) leadership in our lives?

First time back in church in eight months, and the sermon made our blood boil. The pastor stated that while your spouse may be unlovable (like an old teddy-bear, dragged through the mud) their spouse's love can change them. Love changes people. No it does not! Boundaries change people! Loving submission to abuse just enables that abuse, and this is…
 
A twitter post about "making sure your wife votes exactly as you do" sparked a passionate and hilarious discussion about gender roles. We have never quite agreed on whether we have a "complimentarian" or a "feminist" marriage. Somehow, it seems to work pretty well. But telling your wife how to vote is just not OK in either of our books...--- Send i…
