    As political scientists, pundits, and historians try to make sense of the November 2020 election, a marriage divide in the electorate has emerged. Married Americans were appreciably more likely to vote for Trump than those who were either unmarried and cohabiting or single. As reported last week in TAC, Peyton Roth and W. Bradford Wilcox recently found that marriage was one of the strongest predictors of Republican voting in 2020. But such a discovery does not mean that married Americans are solely extreme Trump supporters, are ideologically monolithic, or have negative Trumpian views about the nation’s future whatsoever.
  • 'No dancers, flirts, or street-walkers need answer': Century-old personal ads reveal how singles looked for love in the 1900s, from a 'business gentleman' seeking 'a woman of means and refinement' to a 'wealthy woman' who 'dreads a lonely future'

    Century-old personal ads reveal how single people in the 1900s tried to find love — decades before dating apps like Tinder and Bumble made it possible for men and women to seek a partner in just one swipe. Before the age of digital dating, many people used local newspaper ads, which could be placed anonymously in by singles hoping to find love, companionship, or even marriage. While the first printed personal ads appeared in newspapers as far back as the 1700s and were still common in the 1990s, a new collection of them curated by MyHeritage.com shows just what singletons...

    A herb dealer, Rofiat Biliameen, has petitioned a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve her two and a half-year-old marriage to estranged husband, Ahmed Biliameen on grounds of deception and distrust. Rofiat told the court that her husband was also blackmailing and threatening to kill her. “In 2018, when I was looking for an apartment to rent, I informed Ahmed as one of the landlords at Ayegun-Olomi, he promised to get me an apartment which he did. “However, he soon started wooing me because according to him, nobody would give an apartment to an unmarried woman in that community....

    With the ongoing pandemic, this year's Chinese New Year celebrations will be quite different from what we are used to. Other than sticking to the eight-person rule during gatherings and using e-hongbaos instead of physical red packets, we'll all have to don a face mask while visiting family and friends. Well, there's a silver lining to the mask-wearing if you are dreading being grilled by kaypoh relatives about your relationship status — you have the answer for them on your mask before the question comes if you get these ones from homegrown brand wheniwasfour. Designed for Chinese New Year, these...

    Pope Francis needs to take tougher action against the United States’ most influential Catholic in Rome, Cardinal Raymond “Breitbart” Burke. The renegade cleric is not only undermining Francis’s reformist, compassionate papacy, and gospel teaching as it applies to refugees and Muslims, but the rebel prince of the church is also using his position within the walls of the Vatican to legitimize extremist forces that want to bring down Western liberal democracy, Stephen K. Bannon-style. Simply put, the Vatican is facing a political war between the modernizing Pope Francis and a conservative wing that wants to reassert white Christian dominance. Burke...

    Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been together for 37 years -- and the Hollywood couple have zero plans to tie the knot. The duo first began dating while filming 1984’s “Swing Shift” and have since built a life together without the need to get married. “You’ve just got to want to be together,” the actress told People magazine in this week’s cover story. “I don’t think there’s any other way to do it,” added the 75-year-old. Despite their union, the pair have been selective when it comes to working together, the outlet shared. They appeared together in 1987’s “Overboard”...

    Ask any random group of ten elderly couples about their marriage, and half of them will probably say something like this: “We were high school sweethearts, tied the knot soon after graduation, worked our way up from nothing, had kids, and here we are. Being married made us who we are today.” Beneath these stories is a view of marriage as a foundation of life, a starting point for other goals. Today, this view has been replaced by a different one, what some call the “capstone” view of marriage. In the “capstone” view, marriage is a finishing touch to add...

    In Sunday's Dispatch, Cy Souders and his beloved wife Jean had an important announcement in the Celebrations Section. The couple, who graduated from Bucyrus High School, were wed in Kentucky in the fall of 1939. Last week they celebrated their 81st wedding anniversary. So, why make a post about this? Souders was a three-time All-American End at Ohio State and was a key player on the 1942 national championship team. Another interesting fact is in 1944, Souders left the Buckeyes to serve two years of active duty with the Navy during World War II. He played three seasons in the...

    The Church of England announced that it is going to begin a formal “discernment and decision-making” process "about a way forward for the church" in regards to its teachings on sex, sexuality and marriage. Church leaders are aiming to come to a conclusion on the long-debated issues by 2022. The announcement came with the launch of the "Living in Love and Faith" resources, which more than 40 people, led by the Bishop of Coventry Christopher Cocksworth, worked on for three years to help people participate in honest discussions, listen to life stories and understand each other’s views. Part of the...
  • How Strong Women Like Amy Coney Barrett Submit To Their Husbands With Joy: Leftists are attacking SCOTUS nominee ACB for having a view of marriage entirely in keeping with a proper reading of scripture.

    Now that Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court is official, leftists everywhere are casting aspersions at the wall to see what sticks. A few early favorites include condemning her for adopting children or expressing outrage that Republicans would push for a nomination when Democrats don’t control the outcome.The most interesting smear, however, regards feminine submission — an apparent teaching of Barrett’s faith group, People of Praise. It’s silly to suggest that submission holds back women when your example is being considered for one of the highest offices in the United States. But silly or not, it does...

    U.S.—Pioneering smart thermostat company Matrimostat announced a brand-new thermostat that will automatically set the temperature to whatever your wife wants. “The Matrimostat 2000 uses advanced quantum technology to identify your wife’s temperature preference before she even mentions it --often before she even knows it!” says CTO Ted Shmarmanarf. “It’s a lot more challenging than it sounds. Research showed that many women don’t know what they want until at least an hour after they wish it had already happened, so the thermostat had to be able to accommodate for that.” "Now this is one smart thermostat." Shmarmanarf says that the solution...
