This Thursday, August 27 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET we will discuss the ubiquitous problem of relationships and kids. Can they co-exist (well)? Gina Schreck is our special guest on this topic.
One of my joys in life is talking with people wherever I go. My kids used to be completely embarrassed by this trait of mine but now don’t even pay attention. As my boys are entering adulthood and the challenges, options, and choices they will face, I find myself more interested in how young people are choosing to live their lives. More and more, my scientific polling and studies (hardly) seem to indicate less interest in marriage or kids.
My wife and I went out with a recently widowed friend of hers for a post-holiday drink and some poo-poos. She was ready, to a degree, to begin dating and expressed hope to find a monogamous relationship. Ironically, we went out with her on our wedding anniversary, which proved to be an unplanned blessing because it gave us an outlet to express our love, by talking about our relationship. By ourselves, it would have sounded a bit silly.
Let’s face it, Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that polarizes relationships between men and women, and the expectations are off the chart. We men usually can’t get it right. Women look forward to this day as much as the post-Christmas sales. It used to be simple – chocolates and/or flowers and a sweet card. Now, we’re made to feel that our gifts are reflections of our love and their status (in our hearts). Let’s TAKE THIS ON at #DadChat this Thursday, February 12 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET. Your homework is this column, Why Men Hate Valentine’s Day.

The other day I had a sobering conversation with a 21-year-old woman. We covered a lot of topics, and when I got to my inevitable probing questions about her personal life and asked if she ever wanted to get married, her answer was a quick and resounding, “No.” The ensuing short exchange sealed the deal for me of how far we’ve come – as far as societal values – in just my own lifetime!
