Which issue are you most passionate about? Tell us in the comments. My issue is not what you might expect, unless you have seen a few of my very recent comments. I am super passionate about a little-known issue: family structure equality among children. The natural family founded on natural marriage is the gold standard […]

Up until recently, the holidays were very stressful for me. As a child it pained me to choose, every year, between my mom and my dad each Thanksgiving and Christmas. It felt very unfair, and there was a definite inequality between me and my half sister, who was raised in an intact home. I always […]

I found this advertisement and took a screenshot. What do you think about it? I find it appalling. Here’s a divorce lawyer inciting spouses to be combative during a divorce. Profane, vulgar, immoral, opportunistic, exploitive… just a few words that come to mind as I think about the message here. Generally speaking, it’s fair to […]

No fault divorce changed the civil understanding of the spousal bond, and it lowered the barrier for judicial involvement in the minutiae of family life. Now judges are meddling in the details of family life and no cause is required to be shown in order to commence this meddling. A legally innocent spouse can be […]

Since an essential public purpose of civil marriage in the United States has been to attach mothers and fathers to their children and to one another, and since this essential purpose is being overwritten and therefore discarded due to gender neutral marriage and parenting laws, I propose the following: To establish civil unions that are […]

I don’t understand. Since they believe that SSM is good for the family structure, I can’t understand why they don’t want to trade childhoods with me. You see, it’s very easy for me to imagine my childhood under the SSM regime. I wasn’t raised in a same sex household, but SSM impacts the family structure […]

Back in June, Guruforhire made an interesting comment over on Barkah’s thread. The thread is about a survey conducted by Ashley Madison, a website dedicated to helping people commit adultery. The survey measured infidelity by religion. On the second page of the comments, Guruforhire said: “Just remember guys 1 of 3 of you are raising […]

I’ve been inspired by two of Denise’s recent posts (Choosing Life and Is Divorce Bad for Children?). The vulnerability she shared gave me courage to share more of my story. Also, Gary and I had a very pleasant exchange recently, in which he offered an apology for misunderstanding my motives. It’s not that I needed an apology, […]

Former Ricochet member RJ Moeller of Hashtag Productions drew my attention to this article at Family Studies. If, like me, you thought measuring divorce rates was a simple matter, you would apparently be wrong: To oversimplify a complex story: the United States has been lousy at collecting data. Individual counties may keep pretty good track […]
