Sex, Marriage, and Parenting advice

Pastor Kevin Thompson has been blogging about marriages for a long time and he has some unique observations about married life and parenting:

– He says he can predict if a marriage is going to last based on how the couple shares the wedding cake. If they’re aggressive and forceful, smashing cake in each other’s faces, it won’t

– He says if he could give men one piece of advice, it would be to clean the kitchen. When you serve your wife (and the family), she feels valued, supported, and a part of a team. And his wife views cleaning the kitchen as his service.

– He thinks parents should force their children to play sports – it’s too important of a decision for them to make on their own.

– And, he also has The 24-Hour Rule: a spouse is free to turn down the initiation of sex by their spouse or to cancel planned sex for whatever reason they wish, but if they do so, they must initiate sex within 24 hours. Among the reasons is this one: when someone gets turned down for sex, it makes them less likely to initiate again (a concept that I can see easily translate into many things, including work scenarios; when your ideas get shot down a dozen times, you stop trying).

Interesting posts all around – I rarely recommend a blog, but I think you could spend 20 minutes here.
