Stand By Your Man

Dennis Prager was making his case for marriage on his radio program today.  He cited a New York Times article that stated more children today are living with unwed parents than with married parents. 

 According to this article in the New York Times ~

children living with two married biological parents had the lowest rates of harm — 6.8 per 1,000 children — while children living with one parent who had an unmarried partner in the house had the highest incidence, at 57.2 per 1,000 children. 

Children are MUCH safer living with both of their biological parents.  God knows what He is talking about when He says He hates divorce. It hurts children, the most vulnerable in our society.

Prager has interviewed many women around the world and without fail the women say a man that is willing to take on responsibility is a masculine man.

Most couples who live together before marriage, admit their is a huge difference after they get married ~

there is more respect {the men aren't getting it for free}, 

there is commitment,  

"boyfriend" becomes "husband", 

their "son's girlfriend" becomes "daughter-in-law."   

Marriage changes many things for the good...

Schools teach children how to use condoms in the schools, but not how to have a good marriage.  The break down of marriage is having a terrible effect upon our society and children.

We need to romanticize marriage and make it look wonderful!  If done God's way, it is wonderful.  It is an institution designed by God for the health of a society.

So women....Go stand by your man!  Let's be a shining light in our crumbling society.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female created he them.  And God blessed them, and God said unto them,  Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it...And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.
