[Sponsored post] My husband and I met in church and we went through traditional courtship before getting married. When he was courting me, he would visit me at my parents’ house, bring me food and flowers at work, write me letters, spend time getting to know some of my friends and family members, take me out on dates, do volunteer work with me at church, call me on the phone and send me text messages several times each day, and so on. Having enjoyed all those things, I never really considered how things could work with couples who go for online dating that I was really intrigued when two of my friends shared with me how they met their life partners online. One of them is happily married now for nearly ten years, while the other is currently engaged and is soon to be married. As I listened to their stories, there were a few things that I have learned about online dating that changed my views toward online dating sites and online dating in general. …
(featured image by Tanner Mardis on Unsplash) Early this week, I got invited to participate in Commercenter’s Mom’s Day Out 2 event.

They say that the number one cause of disagreement between husbands and wives is money. Although I believe that to be true for many households, I can’t say that it’s the number one reason my husband and I have disagreements. I must admit, however, that talks about money tend to make me feel anxious, especially when my kids would repeatedly ask me to buy them certain stuff or enroll them in special courses, and I have to say no for budget reasons. Lately, I have started to sense that as I let the days went by not enrolling my children, my husband has also started to get more restless and irritable toward me. He could not understand why I had to wait for the (second to the) last day of enrollment, especially when funds have long since been set aside for it. Honestly, I couldn’t answer him whenever he would ask me why because I, myself, is in denial of the real reason. I was trying to hold on to that money because it makes …
