    The Myth of the Perfect Wedding Dress

    As a child, I would carefully wrap delicate toilette paper around my dear Barbie dolls and design one-of-a-kind wedding gowns for their big day. I’d set the stage for the ceremony and prop up my Dimitri doll (from the 1997 animated classic Anastasia) as the groom. With great thought and

    A Case for Casual Dating for the Marriage-Minded

    A few years ago, when a man I was very intrigued by called me to ask for a date, I was elated. So elated that I broke one of my cardinal rules of dating—I closed myself off to other men who were expressing romantic interest, but hadn’t yet asked for a
