-an article about a married couple, husband and wife who don't live together, and who, as I understand from the article, never have.
I can't imagine that working for my relationship with zedrikcayne
. It's not compatible with our relationship and how we function as a couple. I'm wondering what others think about this-would you call this "marriage" or would you call it something else? Would you be able to make the kind of committment that your perception of marriage includes and live like this, or would it not work for you?
Then there was this post
. I've been involved in similar discussions elsewhere, too. It's about what to call a child's genitals. As we approach parenthood even more, this is something we've talked about; in my house, (mostly) proper names were used (I say "mostly" because my vulva and entire genital region were referred to as "vagina" but it's close enough, I think.) It doesn't make sense to me to not teach children proper names for body parts.
There's also this story I saw linked in catling
's journal about Pat Robertson calling for a ban on pet adoptions by same sex couples
. Yes. You read it correctly. And I was glad I didn't have a beverage when I read it. This is from "The Pace Press"-the student newspaper of Pace University (which is a legitimate university.)
Anyway, here's the article for your perusal, in case the link vanishes or you have trouble getting it to load...( here )
For the sake of marital harmony, I must partly retract my complaint about chocolate from the other night. He stopped on the way home (even though he was working late) and brought me chocolate. And, as I picked through the giant bag of candy he did bring home, I discovered individually wrapped Lemonheads
which are one of my favorite candies.
And last, for now...there was a post on a forum I frequent about sex for baby making, and how, when you're actively trying to conceive, sometimes it needs a bit more excitement. I wanted to share what I wrote, because, well, I'm in love. What can I say? ( no graphic details about our sex life follow, but, for courtesy's sake, I cut it )
I've got another post brewing that comes from a conversation with my sister in law, but I need to more completely finish it before I post it.
