Saving your marriage from divorce

MARRIAGE IS hard work. Those of us who are living it understand that. Those who aren’t? Well, they’re sort of like my 11-year-old daughter, Eve, whose idea of married bliss plays out on reality shows where the wedding is not the beginning, but the end.

Unfortunately, no matter how many times David Tutera hosts “My Fair Wedding,” and no matter how many women “Say Yes to the Dress,” marriage isn’t a fashion show. It’s bigger than that.

Marriage is what happens after you’ve maxed out your credit cards to get other people drunk at your reception, and you realize that the wedding gifts won’t cover the bill. Marriage is the first overdue payment. It’s the second major argument. It’s the last straw.

What’s marriage, you ask? It’s that thing that takes place when your spouse has put on work boots and used your last nerve as a trampoline. That’s when you need a secret weapon; a go-to move that’s as tricky as an Allen Iverson crossover. My wife has such a move. I call it her “bread and butter.”

No, really. It’s bread and butter. [button link=”http://www.philly.com/philly/living/20130416_The_way_to_his_heart_leads_through_her_kitchen.html” target=”self” color=”red” icon=”none” style=”normal” size=”default”]READ MORE[/button]

I’m a huge Jalen Hurts fan, but this loss is on him. I know Scott fumbled and Reagor dropped that last pass, but you can’t throw 3 interceptions in a game. Hopefully he learns from this and stops forcing passes into coverage. #frustrating
The acquittal of #KyleRittenhouse opens the door for white vigilantes to kill anyone they want to. It also puts a spotlight on the judge’s biased actions during the trial.
God is so good. Two years ago today we founded @ManUpPHL with a  citywide meeting on gun violence. Tonight we celebrate that with a dinner and strategy session with mentors and mentees who are working together to change lives. We are fully funded, we have committed volunteers, and we have a Listening to the Streets initiative that gets brothers off the streets and into jobs. This week we release our first white paper based on that program. We work to end gun violence one life at a time. Can’t wait to see what the next two years brings!
