Marriage and Dating Predictions Dr. Molly Barrow Matchlines Love Relationships Self help

Posted by Picasa Marriage is here to stay, especially for couples considering children. Relationships will continue to diversify with far more role options for both men and women. Women have experienced a pendulum swing from farm worker to fifties homemaker to all-business woman and back to organic nutrition again. Many religious organizations continue to endorse subservience for women. However, most slavery based on color, religious beliefs or gender rarely endures once a person can make their own living. Fortunately, society has great difficulty forcing anyone who has tasted free will to return voluntarily to suppression. Duties, privileges and responsibilities within the family will continue to move toward a more balanced center. Rather than trusting fickle emotions, couples can use a more scientific approach like the Relationship Test in Matchlines that allows couples to see a graph of where they may potentially have relationship conflict. When the economy is bad, relationships suffer. A poor economy can drive many marriages to distraction as families try to stretch the family dollar beyond their capability. Divorces, job loss, lack of health care benefits, homes in foreclosure and higher abortion rates often reflect the state of our economy more than the failure of relationships. Dating on the web is a bit risky, like sleeping with your windows open. Dating services can act like a screener to help protect you from most obvious undesirables. Relationships develop from slowly revealing yourself in a trusting environment. Remember the government has access to your clever little on-line repartee and who knows who else lurks in cyberspace? No on line conversation is private and once sent you cannot control or delete it. Nevertheless, you may arrange a safe public meeting via an on-line dating service. Just be sure to keep your real address to yourself because your date is after all, a stranger.
