  • The Divorce is Final - A Survival Guide For Men

    The Divorce is Final - A Survival Guide For Men

    The most important thing to realize about divorce is that although your marriage may be over, your life definitely is not. We all have to weather storms at times throughout our lives. This storm is no different than any other, as every storm eventually runs out of rain. The clouds will drift away and the sun will shine brightly on your face soon enough. The hurts will lessen in time and life will go on.

    There are no winners and no losers in divorce. Both parties have committed wrongs and no one is without blame. So be sure that you do not beat yourself up over your past actions. However, be sure, especially if you have children, that your future dealings with your ex-wife are polite and peaceful. Never bad mouth your former spouse to anyone, most importantly your children. It will only hurt them and eventually force them to choose sides. No child should have to choose which parent they love more. ...

  • Friendships Formed in the Midst of Battle

    Friendships Formed in the Midst of Battle


    Brotherly love may be vanishing today, but in centuries past it was an important part of the societies that existed in those times. Having a friend that was more like a brother during medieval times was important to one's survival. In those times, there was little justice for a man due to the limited amount of sheriffs, lawyers, judges and courts. Oftentimes, a friend was a man's only route for him to get justice. There was no welfare system back then, so men often relied on each other to see them through good and bad times. A man needed a best friend he could count on to assist him with food, money or shelter if he were to encounter hard financial times. Men that fought along side each other in war developed a brotherly love for one another. Entrusting your life to one another on a daily basis forged an unbending trust among these men. When men count on each other in those ways, deep abiding love for another will be the result.

    There are many great fictional and nonfictional accounts of brotherly love seen in history, after which men today can pattern a friendship of brotherly love. Some of these great relationships were between men that would lay down their lives for each other, avenge one another, and commit to one another as friends and brothers for life....

  • The Decline of Male Friendships

    The Decline of Male Friendships

    In times past, being friends with another man actually meant something. There was a special bond that men shared when they considered each other a friend that was more than just a passing event. Often times, boys would have friends during their childhood that were more like brothers than friends. I can even remember friends from my childhood that actually cut themselves and mingled their blood, thereby becoming blood brothers. Having a blood brother meant a whole lot more than your run-of-the-mill, basic friendship.

    The Myth That Opposites Attract

    Don't be fooled by the old saying, "opposites attract" because it just isn't so. Of course, it can be fun, exciting, and new to date a girl that is totally opposite from what you are. But the truth is that the excitement and newness will wear off and what will be left are arguments, irritations, and disappointments.

    Let's look at the mechanics of a normal relationship. Two people should enjoy doing things together if a relationship is going to run smoothly. If you are in a healthy relationship, you should expect to engage in activities that you both enjoy. ...
