    Awesome start in your series. It’s so true and sad to know how unimportant and unnecessary dads are thought of in our society. God bless your work through Family Honor.

  3. julienne cyrulinski says:

    This will be shared with my husband as to reenforce him knowing how important his role is in our family. Keep letting the Lord guide you.

    Just in time for Father’s Day. Hat’s off to you Mr. Weaver. Looking forward to reading your last blog in your series. God Bless

  5. Julienne Cyrulinski says:

    See, I need this example of a light touch. I tend to think that everything needs to be fully explained and dealt with in the moment. Subtlety and age-appropriate amounts of truth are well-modeled in this answer. I like the positive reinforcement of God-ordained marriage, too.

    This is great, Vincent!!! Thanks for addressing it!

    This is such a great response. Just found your website and I am really excited to explore all it has to offer. Thank you!

    Good stuff, to the point.

    Robertson also said in the same interview that blacks were happier before the civil rights movement and that girls should be allowed to marry at 15 and 16. Maybe you should choose your moral heroes a bit more carefully.

    • Vincent Weaver says:

      I had no intent to hold Mr. Robertson up as a “moral hero” necessarily. Your point is well-taken, though – moral heroes should be considered very carefully. His comments simply were seen as worthy of further analysis.

      It’s important to note that he actually did NOT make a general statement to the effect that “blacks were happier before the civil rights movement”. He made a personal observation that those HE saw ‘with my eyes’ and worked with in earlier days ‘were happy’. Regarding girls being allowed to marry at 15 or 16 – no reference appears to be made to this in the interview referenced in this blog. But again, the blog was not intended to be blanket praise for Mr. Robertson.

    Good morning,

    I have met Mr. Owens about five to six years ago. I met him when he came to speak to the youth at the Trenton Diocese Youth Conference at the Georgian Court University in Lakewood, NJ. My youth group at St Robert Bellarmine in Freehold, NJ is hosting a GRACE BEFORE DINNER event on November 7th, 2014 and we are looking for a guest speaker. The person that came to my mind first was Mr. Owens because this event is family oriented and I believe that he would be a great speaker about family and togetherness and family trust and love spiritually. I would like to know if he is available that day and what his charge would be. The youth group that I am a director of is self funded and I am hoping that he would consider this event, please call me at #732-966-5801. Thanks Cynthia Beatty

    • Vincent Weaver says:

      Ms. Beatty,

      Thank you for your post! Mr. Owens spoke at our “Theology of the Body for Families” conference in South Carolina last year, but is affiliated with his own organization, the “Theology of the Body Institute” for speaking engagements. Go to this link to find out more: http://www.tobinstitute.org/page.asp?ContentID=3

      God bless you and your work!

    Hello. I was wondering if this conference was taped and available for purchase.

    Thank you,

    • Vincent Weaver says:

      Thank you for your inquiry, Lauretta! We don’t have this material available directly from our website, but we do have a collaborative arrangement with Our Father’s Will Communications. They recorded some of the talks from this conference and should have them available for those interested in purchasing them.

    I would like to see if you can contact our Parish to have your programs, perhaps:
    The Truth and Meaning of Sexuality, Love and Family.

    Correct translation will be “El poder de amar”

  21. Hunter Harrison says:

    Marriage is just cohabitation that has been socially authorized. Would it not stand to reason that if a couple cohabitates and then breaks up, it that very same pairing would have ended up in divorce had they been married?

    Divorce isn’t a good thing- a single couple can spend thousands of dollars on marriage ceremonies, not to mention having and raising kids. If we don’t want to subject children to the trauma of divorce then doesn’t it stand to reason that couples should cohabitate to see if the relationship works?

    • Vincent Weaver says:

      A reasonable rebuttal. However, the data would suggest that the act of hesitation in formally committing to the relationship, in and of itself, makes for a less stable relationship. Additionally, when a couple cohabitates first, the relationship can often focus more on the physical aspect of the relationship rather than having those important conversations about finances, kids, values, long-term goals, etc. Then, that couple gets married and only then do they start addressing those key topics, and at that point, they may discover irreconcilable differences of which they weren’t previously aware.
