Dating: Why?

Cute texts, long calls, matching outfits, sharing stories. If you asked me “Why dating?” a year ago, my answer would’ve been something along those lines. It’s almost an odd thing to even consider.

THE CASE FOR PUTTING MY WIFE BEFORE MY CHILDREN

It’s usually 8:30 PM when I give the first warning shot to my two teenage daughters. At 9 PM, I say, “It’s time for you two to head upstairs.” I repeat this nearly every night. And nearly every night they argue. “But why do we have to go to bed at 9?” they lament. “We’re …
