    A woman, cranky because her husband was late coming home again, decided to leave a note, saying, "I've had it and have left you...don't bother coming after me" Then she hid under the bed to see his reaction. After a short while the husband comes home and she could hear him in the kitchen before he comes into the bedroom. She could see him walk towards the dresser and pick up the note... After a few minutes he wrote something on it before picking up the phone and calling someone... "She's finally gone...yeah I know, about bloody time, I'm coming...

    Married parents were about 20 percent less likely to be depressed than unmarried parents, and they spent more time home-educating their kids, during coronavirus lockdowns. Worry and stress rose to a historic high during the Covid-19 panic, at least since the financial crisis of 2008-2009, according to recent survey evidence from Gallup. Parents of young children had an added responsibility of teaching their children while schools and daycare were closed.Compared with parents who handled these alone, married parents spent more time teaching their children at home, according to an early June survey from the Census Bureau that tracks Covid-19’s effects...
  • What is an Annulment and How Does it Differ From Divorce?

    Posts Posted on June 9, 2020 What is an Annulment and How Does it Differ From Divorce? There are some today who speak of annulment as “just another name for a Catholic divorce.” However, this is not correct. An annulment (more technically described as a “Declaration of Nullity”) is a recognition by the Church, based on evidence, that what may in fact have seemed to be a marriage, was not due to some intrinsic flaw at the time the vows we exchanged. A marriage may have been a civil marriage entered into in good faith by one or both...

    Gay and lesbian weddings have boosted state and local economies by an estimated $3.8 billion since same-sex marriage was legalized nationwide in the United States in 2015, according to a study published on Thursday. Nearly 300,000 gay and lesbian couples have tied the knot since the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, according to researchers from the Williams Institute at California’s UCLA School of Law. “Marriage equality has changed the lives of same-sex couples and their families,” said the study’s lead author Christy Mallory, state and local policy director at the Williams Institute. “It has also provided...

    Believe it or not, thereÂ’s something better than a grande Starbucks Frappuccino, an iPhone, or an afternoon reading a good book. As COVID-19 cases continue declining in many states, new threats are emerging: Alongside growing unemployment rates and an increase in depression, births are declining. According to provisional figures from the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionÂ’s National Center for Health Statistics, births in America are down to their lowest number in 35 years.Nearly 4 million babies were born in the U.S. last year, but that was still a 1 percent birth decrease and 2 percent fertility decrease from 2017....

    The marriage rate in the United States has dropped to its lowest point since someone began keeping records, and anyone who is not a man-hating feminist knows that is a bad sign for the future. A new report from the National Center for Health Statistics shows marriages fell 6 percent from 2018 to reflect an average 6.5 unions per 1,000 people, the lowest number since the federal government began keeping records in 1867.

    Americans are no longer putting a ring on it. The US marriage rate fell to its lowest level on record in 2018, federal stats released Wednesday show. New figures from the National Center for Health Statistics reveal the nationwide marriage rate fell 6 percent from 2017 to 2018, with 6.5 new unions formed for every 1,000 people. The figure marks the lowest rate since the US government started tracking such data in 1867, Sally Curtin, the report’s lead author and a statistician at the federal agency, told the Wall Street Journal. “Millennials are in peak marriage years, their 20s and...

    The U.S. marriage rate is lower than at any point in over a century, with only 6.5 unions per 1,000 people, a government statistics agency reported Wednesday. The National Center for Health Statistics' National Vital Statistics System, a division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said data for 2018, the most recent year analyzed, showed a decline from 6.9 marriages per 1,000 people in 2017. The 2018 figure is the lowest rate since the federal government began collecting data in 1867.

    This is a new generation of elected political representatives refusing to respect, recognize, or answer to God. Their desire is to terminate the Judeo-Christian moral standard, which interferes with their personal ideology, political causes, and chosen lifestyles. This self-serving revelation is totally redefining our culture and could severely weaken, if not destroy, our nation.

    Ilhan Omar’s new husband officiated at his own marriage to the leftist congresswoman, their marriage certificate reveals. has exclusively obtained the certificate which lists Tim Mynett as both the officiant and the bridegroom at the ceremony. It has been legal to conduct your own ceremony in Washington, D.C. since 2014, and that is what Mynett appears to have done. Such marriages are also allowed in Colorado and Pennsylvania and are recognized in other states. The total expense would have been $45 - $35 for the license and $10 for the certificate.

And so, in that spirit, Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Somalia in Minnesota) temporarily suspended her professional hate of America to announce, via Instagram:  No, this lucky third husband isn't her brother as was husband #2 -- or was he #1?  He is her married-to-someone else campaign aide and fundraiser who conveniently "earned" several hundred thousand dollars from her campaign when...

What are the details? "Got married! From partners in politics to life partners, so blessed," Omar wrote along with the picture on Instagram, adding, "Alhamdulillah." Omar's friend Rep.

The apparent nuptials happened last week, according to the Daily Mail, which has covered Omar's relationship history closely. The outlet reported last month that Omar and Mynett...

  • Middle class Americans can no longer afford to get married due to huge debts as just 50 per cent now tie the knot

    Middle class Americans are opting not to marry because until they're financially ready, according to new research that shows people value having a lot of money and a career they enjoy more than a legal union. Student loans and other debts get in the way of marriage which is nowadays regarded as a 'capstone achievement' that comes once an individual has set up for a stable future, researchers say. While 60 percent of Americans said they had been married in 2002 that dropped to 50 percent in 2017. In that same 15-year period the cohabiting figures rose from 54 percent...

    Vatican Commission Implies that the Vast Majority of Catholic Marriages Are Invalid: Annul Away! The Pseudo-Magisterium that has afflicted the Church since the Second Vatican Council has just issued a new pseudo-doctrinal pronouncement from the “International Theological Commission” (ITC).  The ITC, which has no doctrinal authority whatsoever and is essentially a neo-Modernist think tank whose mission apparently is to undermine true Catholic teaching while pretending to explain it, has just published something called “The Reciprocity Between Faith and Sacraments in the Sacramental Economy.”I’ll skip the endless blah, blah, blah we have come to expect from Roman documents since the Council...

    Before Shanee Markovitz and Tani Kay get married this May, the couple gathered their close friends together recently to celebrate … their prenup. “I want my friends to see this as a huge part of our wedding. It’s as important as every other piece, if not more,” says Markovitz, 20. “We’re going to announce it at our wedding and put it in our programs, too.” While many prenuptial agreements are kept hush-hush and often seen as unromantic, for this couple — who have been together since they were high-school sophomores — it’s a sign of liberation. And not everyone is...
