About This Club

Lori may not think she needs to be kept accountable, but we disagree. She likes to use her delete key with amazing speed, but we are faster. This is the place where we keep all the contradictions and screenshots she doesn't want people to see.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Expectations happen in a marriage. You expect reliability, fidelity, and good treatment among many other things. Expectations don’t always destroy a marriage but unrealistic expectations can damage one. Are you expecting your husband to work backbreaking hours to make ends meet so you don’t have to get a job? Is he expecting you to joyfully bare too many children to the point it damages your body and then have sex after taking care of ten children every day? These can be very unrealistic expectations that can be harmful to your spouse’s mental, physical, and spiritual health. On the other hand, asking for help with chores is not an unrealistic expectation as you both live in the house and are making it a home. Will it always be to your liking? No, because individuals are human with different ways of doing this and may have learned differently in the past. This is where we must evaluate our expectations and determine whether it needs to be addressed or not. Healthy, honest, and kind communication can go a long way to building up your marriage. You married your spouse for an equal, healthy partnership where you communicate desires and needs. You are each other’s protectors and providers, a safe place. You married because you love each other deeply and want to make each other’s lives more joyful, less burdensome, to be a friend and companion, and to stand with each other in times of need and distress. Sometimes life is neither easy nor happy but communication, compassion, faithfulness, and understanding can go far in easing the pain and adding light in dark times.

      LOL, I read the Bible an awful lot for someone who's a hard-materialist atheist. But, then, I was raised culturally Christian, & US culture is so deeply steeped in Christianity, it's difficult to escape it.
      I like the Bible websites, tending to like the gateway one better than the hub one, for usability reasons. I really like that they have all the versions, all the different books, & all the commentaries. I did buy a Bible, in college lol, a big fat scholastic bible with all the books & a ton of footnotes. I started an atrocity project with it long ago & it's full of post-its.
      I've definitely developed a preference in versions, liking the NIV best so far, it's marvelously clear & the least disappointing when I dig into the depths. The KJVs are muddled & difficult to understand. Recently I've gotten to thinking that's why all these my-own-private-patriarchal-cult & grifters & et al like the KJVs so much, cuz they're a more obscure version that requires more 'explaining', is more open to interpretation. In addition to the obvious historical reasons why, like feeling all connected to the Pilgrim eras, & sounding all Shakespearean.
      I mostly end up reading the Bible as a fact-checking exercise, wondering what the verses & chapters say, the verses that people will have in their bios or social media postings. Tho' I do a fair amount of wondering why people think a thing that ostensibly has Biblical roots, digging around that.
      Fwiw.

      This first-name-prevalance tool is one of my favorite websites ever. Sadly US-specific but nonetheless fascinating for nerds like me.
