Questions That Every Man Who’s Getting Pressured Into Marriage Should Ask

Written by: Derrick Jaxn 1. If marriage is the only God-approved way to be in a relationship, then why didn't He make a preacher when He made Adam and Eve? 2. I hear some people say marriage is important because it's when you profess your vows before God. But when do we ever do something behind His back? 3. If I tell my woman I love her and I'm in this for the long run, and she tells me she doesn't believe it until she sees a ring or "then why haven't you married me?"....doesn't that mean she trusts the ring more than she trusts me? Those are the top three guilt trips used to pressure men into marriage before they're ready. Why? Because the true meaning of marriage has gotten lost in translation. We think it's a way to oust commitment-phobes and for women to ascend to their proper place as a lady, but there are some very strong and beautiful women who are single by choice. And with the divorce rate so high, marriage clearly isn't the glue that keeps couples together. She deserves to be married. He needs to marry her. What colors she picked out for the wedding. Sound familiar? That's because men are now feeling like they have to marry out of obligation, as opposed to enjoying the same bliss and pride that women have when their friends ask to see their wedding ring. Surely there are exceptions, but don't dismiss the obvious in light of those few. Divorce rates being so high are everything but a coincidence. We get guilt tripped into marrying prematurely so the woman we love doesn't have to walk with her head down, and we don't get looked at as "not knowing her worth". It's unfair, but nobody cares until the man is doing everything he can to stay away from the house. Then he's neglecting his family and so forth. Ever seen a man getting married who let his wife handle all the decorations? It's not because decor is a womanly thing, because ask him about what's under the hood of his favorite car and he'll give you a laundry list of exacts. It's because the new aged idea of what marriage is has very little to do with a man's happiness, and more to do with his obligation to do the right thing. What we need to realize in order to fix this: Marriage is the celebration, NOT the actual victory. The victory is the healthy relationship you have  beforehand, the trust that's built, and the bond that strengthens through hard times. The victory is being married in the heart...

11 Year Old Enrolls as a Phsyics Major at Texas College

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – The hardest part of college life for Carson Huey-You is the weight of the books he must carry in his backpack.   After all, Carson’s only 4-foot-7, 75 pounds – and 11 years old as he embarks on his freshman year at Texas Christian University.   He became TCU’s youngest student ever when classes started last week. The physics major says he plans to be a quantum physicist.   The Southlake child graduated in May as co-valedictorian from a privateGrapevine high school at age 10. He scored 1770 on his SAT, and his mother, Claretta Huey-You, says Carson was reading by age 2. She says numbers and math came easily to him, he plays classical music on the piano, and he can speak Mandarin Chinese.   Now he’s learning the TCU Fight Song.

Group Told to Leave Restaurant Because Other Customers Felt “Threatened”

After 2 hours of patiently waiting to be seated at Wild Wings Cafe in North Charleston, SC, 25 close friends and family were asked to leave. Why? A customer felt threatened. Michael Brown and his family were approached by the shift manager and told that there was a "situation". Brown explained to WNEM TV 5, “She said there’s a situation where one of our customers feels threatened by your party, so she asked us not to seat you in our section, which totally alarmed all of us because we’re sitting there peaceably for two hours. Obviously, if we were causing any conflict, we would have been ejected out of the place hours before" When the shift manager realized that one of the members of the group had taken his phone out to record the conversation, she got irate. Brown went on to explain, “I asked her – I want to be clear with you. I said, so you’re telling me I have to leave? She said I have a right to deny you service. I said so you’re asking me to leave because you’re upset because he was recording you. After we have waited for two hours, and after you’ve already pretty much discriminated on us. And she answered yes.” Brown and other members left the restaurant and called the offices of Wild Wing Cafe, only to be unanswered. But that wouldn't be the last of it. They did what has proven to be a useful resource in making your voice heard. They went to social media. One of Brown's friends posted to Facebook: I will never go to Wild wings cafe in N. Chs again! We (Party of 25 family and friends) waited 2hrs, patiently and were refused service because another customer (White) felt threatened by us. This type of racial discrimination is un acceptable and we have to put a STOP TO IT. The manager looked me dead in the face and said she was refusing us service because she had a right to and simply she felt like it. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS ESTABLISHMENT… PLEASE SHARE THIS POST.. We need your help. Wild Wings Cafe quickly responded to the Facebook post for damage control and reached out to Brown personally offering an apology and a free meal. He declined and said, “We weren’t coming there for a free meal. When we came there that night, we were coming to patronize the business. This is not a situation where you can just give us a free meal and everything is ok because it’s deeper than that.” Once again, we're seeing discrimination reminiscent of the 1960's. This is the...

A Man Has Done Nothing For You Until He Has Made You A Wife: Response.

Written by: Derrick Jaxn I've been seeing this meme around for a while now and I did what I normally do when I see people saying whatever they can for brownie points. Kept it moving.   But the last time I saw it, I realized it was giving desperate women Red Bull wings. They shouted hallelujah, ran up and down the aisles, and waved this in the face of the men who met them last week to prep him for the pressure coming if he didn't hurry up and pop the question.   So what exactly is going on in this meme? Lie now. Be honest later: that technique is a bullshitter's best friend. That's where you say something completely wrong but end it on a good note so the credibility and emotional high spreads to the rest of your argument and people forget to think about the entire message. Richard Nixon was famous for this.   Stop idolizing boyfriends. I'm good with that. You shouldn't idolize anyone; husbands, & pets included, so that's the more honest part of the quote.   But as for the part where desperate chicks do jumping jacks, A man has done nothing for you until he's made you a wife...   The courtship is where the foundation of a relationship is built, also said to be the most important. It's where a man proves his ability to love and support you with his actions and vice versa so why would a woman in her right mind reduce that to "nothing" in the name of getting a wedding ring?   There are boyfriends who've literally died for their girlfriends, so throwing relationships this far out of context is not only misguided, but likely to leave a woman without a husband for the rest of her life. Why? Because desperation is to men, what no job, bad credit, and an addiction to Call of Duty is to women. HUGE red flag. The primary reason both good men and women leave relationships, is because of a lack of appreciation. So being brainless enough to run with this kind of mindset(in the meme) will end something that could be beautiful before it even gets a chance to start.   Real women know how to focus on the goal at hand while being grateful for the journey it takes to get there. When God sends you a husband, he's likely to start off as your boyfriend. Saying that he's done nothing for you is a huge slap in the face to both of them. So if a man has truly done nothing before you get to the altar, then...

Man Declared Dead for 45 Minutes Comes Back to Life

Tony Yahle says doctors can’t figure out how he came back from the dead. According to ABC news, Yahle’s wife noticed his irregular breathing on August 5th. When she couldn’t wake him up, she called an ambulance and had him rushed to the hospital. Later that afternoon, Tony Yahle’s heart had stopped and after 45 minutes of failed efforts to revive him, doctors went to the family to deliver the sad news. Yahle’s 17 year old son, Lawrence, rushed back in to the room to his father’s side and cried “Dad you’re not going to die today” according to ABC. And he was right. At that moment, medical examiners noticed Yahle’s heart pulsing again one to two times a minute. “I thought we’d better make another effort to revive him.” Nazir told ABC. Over the next week, Tony Yahle’s heart rate sped up to where he felt well enough to speak to various media outlets, calling his survival miraculous. His doctor agreed. “I’m calling it a miracle because I’ve never seen anything like it.” Nazir told ABC. Share this:TweetShare on...
