Texas church offers free weddings to dozens of cohabiting couples

May 23, 2019 by

By Leah MarieAnn Klett, Christian Post: As marriage continues to decline amid divorce, cohabitation and rampant “casual sex,” a Texas pastor is encouraging cohabiting singles to marry — and the church will pay for everything, from the rings to the wedding cake. “We continue to see the issue of cohabitation in our church and in our community and we wanted to use God’s Word to give us a pathway,” Bryan Carter, senior pastor of Concord Church in Dallas, told The Christian Post. “As a pastor, my...

What is killing marriage and the family?

May 13, 2019 by

by Belinda Brown, MercatorNet: It’s not just the free market or big government – there’s Big Sister too. The birth of a new Royal baby here in Britain reminds us what privileged women have, and what their poorer sisters lack: a decently earning husband and therefore the prospect of a stable family life. Of course, when that decently earning husband is a prince, he doesn’t just bring home the bacon — he owns the whole farm. This was one of the more controversial points which Tucker...

Why won’t men marry? Because they don’t want to

May 13, 2019 by

by Laura Perrins, TCW: WHO killed or is killing marriage and the family? This is quite a hot topic amongst conservatives right now so I have decided to stick my oar in.

It’s official: marriage to be put on a more flimsy basis than tenancies

Apr 15, 2019 by

from Coalition for Marriage: Last week the Government trumpeted its ‘no-fault’ divorce plans. Today the Government says no-fault leads to injustice. Only this time it’s tenancy contracts. And this time the Government is to stop tenancy agreements being ended for no reason! Yes, really. The Government says that ‘no-fault evictions’ are unjust and unfair. However, with marriage law, no-fault divorce is apparently a must. In marriage couples promise to be together for life. Landlords...

Multiple faults in the no-fault divorce proposals

Apr 10, 2019 by

by Christopher Shell, Anglican Mainstream. What is missing from the no-fault divorce proposals? Foresight. Joined-up thinking. Knowledge of human nature. Conscience. Compassion. Coherence. Morality of any kind.  It is deja vu for those who think back to interminable proposals to make abortion safe, legal and rare; or to beam in pornography from Europe for general consumption and easy child-access; or to shove the lifestyles of the sexual revolution with their bitter fruit and...
