My new book, Staying Married in a Degenerate Age: A Guide for Traditional Men and Women, is now available on Amazon Kindle and paperback.
Our culture has declared open war upon marriage and the family. Although this war has been going on for a long time, the most virulent attacks began hitting in the 1960s with the introduction of the Pill and the advent of second-wave feminism.
The culture is winning. It is fair to say that marriage is on the ropes. Over 50% of marriages, including Christian marriages, end in divorce. And for many millennials, marriage is not considered a serious option anymore. They prefer to just cohabitate.
Some might be fooled into thinking that the war is over. They think that enough damage has been done that our elites will just leave traditional men and women alone. They won’t. They will continue to attack until every shred of the divine order has been stamped out.
Winning elections without cultural change is futile
There are some who hope that by electing good politicians we can begin to turn the tide. But that approach is backwards. We must first change our culture. Only then can we begin to reclaim the ground that has been lost.
Staying Married in a Degenerate Age is intended to be a handbook for one crucial piece of restoring the culture: rebuilding traditional marriage. In the book I discuss the forces that are attacking marriage in detail.
But the book is more than just an academic discussion of the cultural battles we will face. It also provides practical advice that every married couple needs to be aware of, including:
- How to cheat proof your marriage.
- How to avoid getting a divorce.
- How to rekindle sex and romance in a marriage.
- Avoiding common money traps.
- Inoculating your marriage from the negative influence of the culture.
- Masculine spiritual headship according to Ephesians 5.
- Making your faith operative in your marriage.
And because your choice of a spouse is probably the most important decision you will ever make, I included two chapters dedicated to single men and women. Some of the questions that are answered include:
- What qualities must a potential spouse have?
- How can you attract the highest quality spouse?
- How will you know when you’ve met the person you should marry?
