TotD: Emma Goldman on Love

Love, the strongest and deep­est ele­ment in all life, the har­bin­ger of hope, of joy, of ecsta­sy; love, the defi­er of all laws, of all con­ven­tions; love, the freest, the most pow­er­ful mold­er of human des­tiny; how can such an all-com­pelling force be syn­ony­mous with that poor lit­tle State and Church-begot­ten weed, mar­riage? Free love? […]

What Can All Couples Learn From Same-Sex Marriages?

From Gay Unions Shed Light on Gen­der in Mar­riage A grow­ing body of evi­dence shows that same-sex cou­ples have a great deal to teach every­one else about mar­riage and rela­tion­ships. Most stud­ies show sur­pris­ing­ly few dif­fer­ences between com­mit­ted gay cou­ples and com­mit­ted straight cou­ples, but the dif­fer­ences that do emerge have shed light on the […]

Poetry: Michael Blumenthal

For my Sam A Mar­riage You are hold­ing up a ceil­ing with both arms. It is very heavy, but you must hold it up, or else it will fall down on you. Your arms are tired, ter­ri­bly tired, and, as the day goes on, it feels as if either your arms or the ceil­ing will soon col­lapse. But then, unex­pect­ed­ly, something […]

I hate it when that happens

I had an entry almost com­plete­ly writ­ten, and it was good. Then I hit some­thing bad­ly with my numb hand, and my brows­er backed up a page. Now the entry is all gone. Yes, I should have saved some time while writ­ing, but I was on a roll. So you’ll have to set­tle for know­ing that […]

Procreate or else!

Ok—if het­ero­sex­u­al mar­riage is so sacred because it takes a man and a woman to pro­cre­ate, those het cou­ples had best be prov­ing that’s why they’re mar­ried, right? Or at least, that’s the log­ic behind a bal­lot mea­sure pro­posed in Wash­ing­ton state. Pro­po­nents of same-sex mar­riage have intro­duced a bal­lot mea­sure that would require het­ero­sex­u­al cou­ples to […]

Poetry: The Longly-Weds Know

The Long­­ly-Weds Know –Leah Fur­nas From To Love One Anoth­er That it isn’t about the Gold­en Anniver­sary at all, But about all the unre­mark­able years that Hall­mark does­n’t even make a card for. It’s about the 2nd anniver­sary when they were sur­prised to find they cared for each oth­er more than last year And the 4th when both kids […]

Poetry: The Marriage-Bed

The Mar­riage-Bed –Michael Simms From The Hap­pi­ness of Ani­mals for Eva  The mar­riage-bed is the cen­ter of hap­pi­ness,             a point from which all things rip­ple out­ward,             a nest from which all things learn to fly. It is the sign of return, part of the great rhythm             of the sea­sons and of the years. It is the dream of […]

What I Learned from My Past Relationships

So I actu­al­ly heard from some­one via Orkut. I can’t remem­ber if that’s ever hap­pened to me before or not. Any­way, I went to check out this per­son­’s pro­file and real­ized mine was way out of date. Some­day, I swear, I’m going to repro­duce all the ques­tions all those dif­fer­ent places ask right here on my […]
