Left out of the decision-making by her husband and in-laws


By

I read your article about the cheating husband who posted pictures on Facebook. I suddenly thought about my own husband; he is 38 and I am 37 years old. We’ve been married eight years and have one child. He was my first boyfriend ever, and I his first girlfriend, for five years.

Extrabiblical supposition? Jesus speaks of ‘my wife’

This Sept. 5, 2012 file photo released by Harvard University shows a fragment of papyrus that divinity professor Karen L. King said is the only existing ancient text that quotes Jesus explicitly referring to having a wife. An article published in the Harvard Theological Review on Thursday, April 10, 2014, said new scientific tests suggest the fragment is more likely an ancient document than a forgery. King, an expert in the history of Christianity, said the papyrus probably dates to eighth-century Egypt based on carbon dating tests and tests on the ink’s chemical composition. AP FILE PHOTO

‘Conscious uncoupling’ and the courage to let go


By

“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” began actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s announcement on the “conscious uncoupling” that she and husband Chris Martin had both decided on. “We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been.

Why these married couples opt not to have children

By

I often cringe at weddings when the officiating priest tells the bride and groom what to expect when the “pitter-patter of little feet,” or children, come.

BORGY Manotoc and Georgina Wilson are happily together again the second time around

It’s time for my monthly Sweet and Sour, palangga, so let me start with this truly sour note. There is this impostor who has opened Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts under my name. I have never had an account in these social media sites, and I still don’t have. This impostor will be discovered, and will be exposed. Please delete this person from your account and spread the word to friends to do the same. Thanks, palangga.

By

In the Philippines, family is an extremely important factor in people’s lives. Many people grow up in multigenerational homes where children and their cousins are raised by parents and grandparents; and aunts and uncles are considered second parents. It is no surprise then that almost as soon as a couple gets married, everyone expects them to “contribute” to the family’s growing number.

We only have one life to live


By

I’m a 50-plus single mother of six, and have been separated now for almost four years. I’m partly to blame for the breakup of my 20-plus-year marriage, but it is nothing compared to the possessiveness and jealousies of my husband. My contribution to the never-ending trust issues was being silent.
