Yes, Frank -- I don't think put-downs, one-up-manship, nasty sarcasms are funny. If you can come up with some humorous things to say that aren't derogatory, I'll laugh. There is a lot of humor and fun on here, and I enjoy it and even post it myself. But not the kind you enjoy. I'm one that is comfortable building others up and causing happy laughter rather than poking fun and enjoying myself at another's expense.

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, would you include in your statement material that is Christian but not Catholic? Did I misunderstand your use of the word secular?

There are many Christian writers/therapists/counselors who provide a Biblical viewpoint on relationships (H. Norman Wright, Gary Smalley, Gary Chapman, Chuck Swindoll--and so many others).

And there are some forms of advice floating around that, while not particularly ascribing to a Catholic/Christian viewpoint, that can offer tidbits of wisdom. Surely, we need to carefully discern what we read or hear before we incorporate it into our thinking.

I don't think that as mature adults we need to confine ourselves to only Catholic authors, etc. Since joining this site, I have appreciated getting recommendations of all the help available from Catholic sources in regard to the Church's teachings on chastity, etc. but I know there's a wealth of information available from reliable Christian (non-Catholic) sources as well.

I thought if your foot was too big for the glass slipper it meant that you were one of Cinderella's ugly stepsisters.

I really liked her interview especially where she talked about 'having it all' and making a choice at what we are going to work really, really hard at. Thank you for this topic! I did not know about the book.

Her explanation too, of femininity and empowering men and choosing to serve...so well put.

Yes, it is refreshing to see that someone "out there" is coming to good conclusions on how to be successful in marriage! Of course, there are probably parts of the book that I will not agree with too. I do think it is good to affirm the few good things that do get promoted in our culture.

I agree. Glass is rather impractical.

Absolutely. Good ideas can come from many places. Having different opinions is a fact of life. Not everything is dogma.
