Nature of Marriage

And relationships

If we look back through history, far back we have the hunter-gatherer tribes where men and women were more equal than the ideal many of us seek today. With the development of agriculture and larger societies, women became more subservient through into the present day where women are fighting for equity in many arenas of life where it’s permitted.

Is There A Perfect Relationship

In many countries we have the idealised “love” relationship, however this is very unstable as we see by the rising divorce rate. There are also the arranged marriages which are often more successful than a love relationship. However throughout history, our relationships and sexuality have been controlled, and adapted by the economic and political

Family Violence and Child Abuse

A personal and social disorder

This is a problem arising out of our failure to be completely human. Some people say it’s stress that causes some individuals to buckle and take out their frustration on family members.

Once upon a time there were societies and indeed civilisations that learned to cooperate with nature. They had the right number of children and produced sufficient food to meet the needs of individuals and communities. But in today’s mad world we all exist in a high-pressure lifestyle where we try to squeeze the most from life but at the same time missing the point.

These are the main points of life

Marriage

The core of our social structure

Marriage is a social institution and a commitment generally taken for life, yet it has a very high rate of failure. Monogamy is actually a relatively new, Western invention, infidelity, divorce and remarriage are common practices. In ancient times, sex, intimacy and reproduction was something that just happened in many places, although usually with the blessing of the community.

In many tribal cultures, what we take for marriage was a public acknowledgement of an affection and an agreement to be responsible for consequent children, but monogamy was not necessarily part of the equation.

Within these tribal groups, very few of these ‘marriage’ relationships were exclusive as it was recognised that attraction between people comes

The Tomato Grower

An old Italian man lived alone in the country. He wanted to dig his tomato garden but it was very hard work, as the ground was hard. His only son, Vincenzo, who used to help him, was in prison.

The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.

Dear Vincenzo, I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I am getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the garden for me. Love, Papa

A few days later he received a letter from his son.

Dear Papa, I’d

Marty and The Building Site

Humour

One day while Six Year Old Marty was pestering his mother, so she said, ‘Why don’t you go across the street and watch the construction workers building the new home, maybe you will learn something.’

Martin was gone about two hours. When he came home his mother asked him what he had learned.

Martin replied…’Well first; You put the goddamn door up. Then the son of a bitch doesn’t fit, so you have to take the cocksucker down. Then you have to shave a cunt hair off each side and put the motherfucker back up.’

Shocked, Marty’s mother said, ‘You just wait till your father gets home!’

When Marty’s father got home the mother asked Marty to tell his

Humour

A woman walks into the Gympie Centrelink office, trailed by 15 kids…

‘WOW,’ the social worker exclaims, ‘Are they ALL yours?

‘Yeah they are all mine,’ the flustered mother sighs, having heard that question a thousand times before.

She says, ‘Sit down Terry.’ All the children rush to find seats.

‘Well,’ says the social worker, ‘then you must be here to sign up. I’ll need all your children’s names.’

‘This one’s my oldest – he is Terry.’

‘OK, and who’s next?’

‘Well, this one he is Terry, also.’

The social worker raises an eyebrow but continues. One by one, through the oldest four, all boys, all named Terry.

Then she is introduced to the eldest girl, named Terri.

‘All
