Marriage and the Election
Dear Friends of Marriage,
There is a lot of talk on both sides in this election that this is the most important election this century. Most of this is exaggeration to try and motivate people to vote for one candidate or the other. But in one area this is true.
Depending on who wins this election, marriage as we know it may never be the same. In the last debate President Bush said he was for a marriage amendment because you cannot trust activist judges on the court. We have already begun to see this happen. On October 5 a Louisiana judge voided the constitutional amendment that was passed this past spring by the State Leislature and passed the public vote by 78%.
After Novembers election over one third of the states will have a constitutional amendment or law defining marriage as being between one man and one woman. Senator Kerry when ask the same question about a marriage amendment sighted the number of states with laws or amendments as reason to not have a constitutional amendment. This argument sound great but now we see that the courts could over rule all these laws and amendments.
While it is uncertain that we will get a constitutional amendment it is very important that we have the right judges appointed. Senator Kerry stated in the debate that he would only appoint judges who supported abortion. As we have all seen in the past pro abortion judges are almost always extremely liberal and are the types of judges that do not support marriage.
If you support marriage as being between one man and one woman it is imperative that you vote in this election and encourage as many people who believe in families to also vote. It looks as if this is going to be a close election and voter turn out will most likely make a difference.
Please do not let the homosexual community and their undying support for the Democrats steal this election and destroy family as we have know it for over 6000 years.

Marriage Missing its Spark?
If the fires of passion in your marriage have been reduced nearly to embers, then you are not alone. One of the most common problems that can damage a marriage is the loss of spark?or spice, or whatever you like to call it. It's really not so easy to get yourself or your partner "in the mood" once you have become very familiar with each other. Of course, it's wonderful to be familiar with your spouse because familiarity is the basis of intimacy. But intimacy is not the same as passion, is it? Routine is the culprit. If the proper countermeasures are not deployed against routine's assault on your relationship, then it will drain all the passion right out of your marriage. Routine is a tenacious killer of passion?a suspect in the deaths of over 1 million steamy romances. I know routine comes in very handy for showers and oil changes, but it has no place in the bedroom.

Bridal Shower Gift Ideas
You've been invited to the bridal shower ? what fun! You already have a wonderful wedding gift, but you aren't sure about bridal shower gift ideas. The first rule of thumb is that a bridal shower gift is generally a bit more personal; that is, it focuses on the bride rather than the couple. So think in terms of her likes and dislikes as well as the theme of the party.
Your groomsmen will be donating their time to your big event. They will appear at the tailor or rental store to be fitted for that formal wear. They will hear your arguments with your beloved over the wedding arrangements. They will celebrate your last night of being a single man. They will cheerfully escort your guests to their seat. And some will offer toasts in your honor at your reception. So how do you show your appreciation for all they are doing for you? Take a look at some of our suggestions.

Outdoor Wedding Ceremonies ? Keeping Your Guest Comfortable

A Wedding Shower Invitation Should Be Attractive And Stylish!
Wedding shower invitations should lay out all of the necessary information, yet still be attractive. One way to do this is to have a picture engraved on the invitation. Ask your engraver to add a small design on the inside of your invitation or wherever you have information about the reception. If, for example, an ice cream social is your theme see if there is an ice cream cone or Sundae dish they can emboss onto the paper without taking away from the main body of the invitation. Remember that subtlety is stylish; you don't want to come across as overpowering with your theme.
To Register or Not to Register (for Wedding Gifts)
I say always register for gifts! You see, people tend to spend more on wedding gifts than any other occasion! For example, when I got married, my husband's grandparents gave us $1000 and we never get gifts from them, not even for Christmas!
