What I Learned From A Pre-Approved Credit Card

When I got my first piece of mail as a married man, I was excited that it read “Mr. and Mrs. Michael Rochin”. I thought it was the coolest thing ever (even though it was just a “pre-approved” credit card) … but then fear struck me when I saw both of our names together because I realized something: I represent not only myself, but now my wife; every single action I do from now on will be a reflection of her. If I treat someone harshly, they can fairly assume that my wife is rude as well. If I gossip […]

Are You Afraid Of Continuing This Cycle In Your Marriage?

Almost 5 years ago, I moved out of my house; not because I was an 18 year old kid that wanted to be on his own, and not because I was getting kicked out, but because my parents were getting a divorce and my Dad was moving to a different state. Statistics say that you may understand my situation first hand. Almost a year ago, I said “I do” to my wife; A vow that sometimes goes forgotten by some and a promise that people don’t pay attention to when they should the most. When I said, “I do”, and […]

Dear Pornography: An Open Letter To My Old Friend

Dear Pornography, We have known each other since I was a child and I feel as though I can tell you things that I could never tell anyone else. You know all my secrets and all my fantasies and you have been by my side in the good times and the bad. You spent time with me when I was lonely or bored and you comforted me when I was angry and hurt. It feels like you have always been there for me. But I need to get a few things off my chest. You promised me that after I got married I wouldn’t […]

3 Life Lessons I Learned From My Dad

I can’t remember much of my childhood. I always tell people this is because I’m always looking toward the future, but I doubt that’s why. I’m pretty sure I just have a terrible memory. But as I look at the kind of person I have grown up to be, I begin to see things in myself that remind me of the things my dad taught me as I was growing up. I see character traits in me that are just like him; I think like him, I love like, I joke like him and I definitely got my love of computers and tech […]

Pornography’s Effect on Marriage

Guest Post by: Mike Taylor It is a frequently accepted fallacy that pornography use while in a marriage or a committed relationship can help “spice things up”. In reality, pornography and the effects of an addiction can do more to harm the relationship than almost anything else. In 2002, the annual meeting of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers reported that “an obsessive interest in Internet pornography” played a significant role in 56 percent of their divorce cases during the previous year. Worldwide, the pornography industry brings in over $97 billion each year. However, the cost to the institution of […]

One Mans View On The 5 Purposes Of Marriage?

There is currently a war going on in our world over the definition of marriage and who gets to define it. But not many are discussing or even questioning the purpose of marriage. The purpose of marriage is not to make you happy or less lonely. It’s not for the tax benefits or shared income benefits. All of these things are good, but only byproducts of a healthy marriage. Do you know the purpose of your marriage? Have you ever thought about it before? You would be wise to put some very serious thought into this simple question. I believe that […]

40 Reasons Why Wives Respect Their Husbands

My wife just recently asked her community of wives to tag their husbands in a facebook comment and write one reason why she respected him. I noticed that there were over 160 comments from wives all over the world, so I thought I would take a look at what they had to say about their men. Admittedly, I have a very cynical side to me and often try and find the negative in people. (I have to repent often for this.) But as I read through the comments looking for the nasty and belittling comments like “my husband doesn’t deserve respect” or “he hasn’t earned it yet” or “I […]

I Allowed This To Grow In My Heart And It Hurt My Wife.

I hate to admit it but I am not perfect. I know, you are shocked, right? Over the past few months I have allowed something to grow in my heart that I didn’t even realize was there until just yesterday. Like an unskilled gardener I neglected the soil of my heart and let frustration and pride sink in. They began to take root and even sprout, finally blooming into the fruit of bitterness. I should have caught it sooner. I should have pulled it out so not to contaminate the rest of my heart, but I didnt! When the bible […]

One Thing You Should Do Every Day For your Wife

Guest Post by: Rev. Ian Miller 2922 days ago on 31 March 2006 I married my wonderful and beautiful wife. On that day I made a commitment to the LORD that each and every day I would PRAY for my wife.
