Non-religious marriage classes in Toronto?

We're getting married next year. Yay! We'd like to go for pre-marriage counselling (marriage classes?), but we're unsure where to find such a thing outside of a religious context. [more inside]

How do you explain divorce to an eight-year-old?

I'm at University and far removed from home geographically. My parents are planning on getting divorced soon and anyone semi-observant would've seen this coming years and years ago. Both wonderful people, both wholly incompatible. So what can I/they do for my adorably clueless, naive, 8-year old sister who still has no idea? [more inside]

Bun in the oven

We have been married for exactly one year and one month. My husband just lost his job and I am working part time. We just found out that we are pregnant with our first child. With recently losing his job my husband asked me if i would consider giving the baby up for adoption. Have you ever had an experience like this before? Did you give your child up even in a marriage? How did it effect your life now? Its something he asked me today but its a really hard decision. [more inside]

When was this book written?

I recently bought a paperback book from an antique shop. The book's called The Mystery of Love, Courtship and Marriage Explained, and it was written by Henry J. Wehman, published by Wehman Bros. But there's no copyright date! Anywhere! In any form! The cover looks like it's a "newer" edition (1920's or so) of an older writing, since the writing uses language and refers to customs that seem outdated even for the early 20th century. There are details such as proper flirting with your parasol, the inappropriateness of women's rights meetings, marrying outside of your social class, calling your husband "Mister" instead of his first name, etc. The word "hugging" (not the act itself) is even called a vulgarity. So, it's old. But how old? How can I find out when this was actually written? Google turns up nada. [more inside]

Should I marry a woman when I also like men?

I am a guy who has been dating a wonderful girl for four years. We have been living together for most of that time. We are both out of college and in our mid-20s. Though this is my first relationship I feel like we are perfect for each other. She's had other relationships (long and short-term) and feels the same way. I am thinking of asking her to marry me, except for one thing: I am bisexual and it is difficult to give up men. [more inside]

Help me help my brother.

My brother has his head up his butt and I want to help him remove it. As his sibling and one of his only friends, I wish to provide him the best advice possible. So my questions are these: 1) What is a constructive thing to say to a sibling who wants a divorce for all the wrong reasons, 2) How do you get someone into counseling when they don't believe in it? and 3) How does one go about finding a very specific kind of counselor? He'd be best served and less apt to argue with a strong, smart father-figure. [more inside]

What to do about my marriage?

Today is my 16th wedding anniversary. In a week I turn 40, so I’m doing a little reflection on my life. I have two kids, one in the final year of high school, the other with two years to go. I’m halfway through a degree – I’ll be done in 18 months, and I work part time. I haven’t had sex in 4 years (and very intermittently in the previous 5) because my husband has absolutely no interest. What should I do? [more inside]

Looking for a French wedding reading

Getting married next week and need a French reading. We're bilingual but our ceremony is all in English. As acknowledgment of the French side of our culture (an as a concession to the French side of the family) we'd like to have a French reading as part of our ceremony. The only problem is that we don't know any appropriate French poetry or other nice words that could be read. The wedding's in a week and I'm starting to freak out a bit, although the worst thing that could happen is we skip the reading (deep breaths....) [more inside]

15th anniversay + no money = need to be creative.

Our 15th wedding anniversary is imminent and my plans need some adjusting due to some financial difficulties. In other words, what I planned to do costs money and we have none. Any ideas of how to make our 15th wedding anniversary special for my wife without spending a lot of cash? Even if I went ahead and spent the cash, my wife wouldn't enjoy herself. God bless her, she's a simple woman who's easy to please, but I want to blow her away in the creative/romantic/fun department. Our anniversary is on a Wednesday. I'll get home from work at 3am on Wed. Waking her up is not out of the question. (She loves to party....usually. On the weekends, after the kids are down, we stay up late, drinking wine, eating fattening foods, and watching movies.) I could wait until morning and cook a big breakfast, but our dear children will be awake then, and I think a 15th anniversary demands some special romantic "alone-time". The following weekend is not out of the question, but "the moment" will have passed, requiring something more formal/expensive.

Advice on dealing with a sick spouse who won't help himself? (sorry--a little long)

My husband has Type 2 diabetes, diagnosed about seven years ago. He has quickly moved from pills to shots to an insulin pump, and he's in his late '40s. The problem is that he doesn't take proper care of himself. When he was first diagnosed, he lost about 40 pounds, but quickly put it back on. Now he won't diet or exercise. He takes plenty of medications for cholesterol, depression, and high blood pressure besides his insulin. Even on the pump, he has not gained any sort of tight control over his blood sugar.
