no more hitler

I would like to declare a moratorium on all comparisons to Hitler. No, the actions of the American military, as much as I may disagree with them, are not quite comparable to the annihilation of twelve million people. kthx.

marriage and name-changing

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. – Genesis 2:24 (ESV)

Typically, when we think of marriage, we think of a woman (specifically, a daughter) in her family, leaving her family and becoming a part of her husband’s family. Hence, a number of past and present cultural practices: the wife’s change of name, the dowry, etc. However, I think we’ve got it backwards. I would henceforth like to use this verse as proof that, when they become married, men should be changing their surnames to match their wives’. :)
