Vicki (Nate's mom) is coming to town for a one week visit next week, so I expect things to get rolling again.
In the meantime, why not learn about marriage in other cultures — like scientology.
On their Web site, scientologists promise that they can teach you how to have one of the few "stable and happy" marriages out there.
Skeptical? I guess you haven't seen the testimonials from reliable sources like "a jeweler in Hawaii" and "a man in Austin, Texas."
From the man in Austin:
“In 1983, after my first marriage collapsed, I took a course at the Church of Scientology on the subject of marriage.
“Amazingly, I learned what a marriage is, how to put one together, and even how to find a person who was compatible.
“Putting the information to use, I found a great person — who had been present on the same floor where I worked, right under my nose for a year, but whom I had never noticed before. Young, beautiful, smart — everything I ever wanted.
“We got married a few months later, and have been happily married ever since — 14 years now — and very stably so.
“In fact, in our 9th year, a man stopped us in a shopping center to say, ‘You two must be newlyweds!’ When we told him we’d been married for 9 years, he was dumfounded.
“We told him, ‘That’s Scientology!’
Interested in taking a course?
Scientology Marriage Courses are fast and easy to do. They don’t require a whole semester or thousands of dollars.
At most, they take a week or less, depending on your schedule, and all of them are very affordable.
After all, Scientology Churches are 100% charitable non-profit entities. They are manned by staff who are dedicated, who want to help others the way they have been helped themselves.
The staff of Scientology organizations are the friendliest people on Earth. If you knew the underlying laws of life and were truly happy in your relationships and activities, you’d feel friendly toward others, too.
They may be the friendliest people on Earth ... but what about other planets? Sorry Dan Snyder, our wedding may have Redskins colors, but I haven't been convinced we should have a scientologist ceremony.
