Marriage and a few rants

We live in a split society that is freaking out over gay marriage and LGBT rights.  Before you jump up and down and holler – it is both sides that are freaking – one side is blessing everything gay and transgender like they are the new savior of progressive-ism.  The other side is just as bad, believing that married gay people will usher in death to America and cause a new round of plaques.

Here are a couple of society shifts that you can bite your nails over while you are saving all of mankind from the LGBT issue:

Baby Daddy – A term that I hate.  Urban Dictionary has this as one of the definitions:

A male that fathers a child but is no longer involved with the mother of the child/children,and more than likely not supporting the children.  “Since I got a boyfriend, my baby’s daddy won’t pay support”.

Divorce is running a muck –

  • The divorce rate in America for first marriage is 41%
  • The divorce rate in America for second marriage is 60%
  • The divorce rate in America for third marriage is 73%
  • Do you want to try for #4?

The “modern family” that needs Windows 20 to keep track of all the members and their connections.  I know church memberships that are easier to understand than some core families.

My fiancee – A fiancee used to mean someone that you were going to marry in 6 months or a year.  Now it means “we’re living together and we may get married some day but probably not.”   That used to be called “living together” or “living in sin”.  It’s not a fiancee.  Don’t fool yourself with the crazy idea of getting married when it is a lot simpler to just share a place.

Being raised by grandma – C’mon moms.  Grandmas are supposed to babysit not raise them.  You and your baby daddy made ’em, you should raise them.

Are you sure that you want to argue over LGBT rights?  We may have enough on the other side to worry about.

1 Corinthians 7  (NIV)

Concerning Married Life

Now for the matters you wrote about: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband.
