It is all about dying to one's self. Otherwise it is nothing at all but a monetary partnership.

I think intertwining secular views on marriage vs. Catholic views can lead one down the wrong path. It's disconcerting to read you're interested in reading something secular.

Frank -- In another topic you commented negatively on people who don't watch much TV, yet here you seem to be criticizing those who want to read a secular book that appears to represent a philosophy of life that is far closer to Catholic belief than the vast majority of television programming. I'm confused by this apparent contradiction. Can you elaborate on why you see the former to be acceptable and the latter not?

Are you watching only Catholic tv? Are you saying watching secular tv is fine but reading good but secular views is wrong?

Many sources of information can be helpful in growing in understanding of relationships, especially by those with good Catholic foundations, discerning minds, maturity, and strong faith.

It's definitely not good when seeking a Catholic husband. That's all I have to say on that.

Why? How about if you are seeking a Catholic husband but the one you find gets his views, ideas of good behavior, sense of humor, etc from secular tv?

Depends on what your idea of good behavior and sense of humor are. And a lot of us already know your view on the humor part is.

This one instead of cutting off body parts, it appears she is saying the fairy tale is unrealistic; that a true marriage includes some dying to self!

Yes, Kristen -- that's what a true marriage involves.

Hi Frank,

I think gems of truth can be found in all arenas, and I think we should both be open to and actually engage concepts and ideas from multiple sources in order to evaluate them. Confining information to only a single source is problematic on a number of levels, critical thinking demands we delve into and evaluate the accuracy, legitimacy, and applicability of multiple lines of reasoning when making decisions or deepening our understanding of concepts and ideas. Knowledge in an of itself is not dangerous, its when it is poorly evaluated and improperly used that it becomes potentially dangerous -- hence the need to thoroughly research multiple angles and evaluate against and with our own primary belief.
