Complacency can be dangerous to any relationship, whether it's dating or in a marriage, say Jefferson and Alyssa Bethke, authors of the book, 31 Creative Ways to Love and Encourage Him and Her.
The evangelical couple share their advice in a video posted on their YouTube channel, saying that while there are several negative things that can ruin a relationship, including lying, cheating, and contempt, one of the lesser-known relationship dangers is complacency, or becoming lazy in your connection with your spouse or partner.
Jefferson, who frequently publishes "Monday Messages" and dating videos on his YouTube channel, explains that when he and Alyssa feel most in touch in their relationship is when they are taking a proactive approach toward each other, instead of treating each other like roommates or "ships passing in the night" due to their busy parenting and work schedules. more >>

"I am tired, I am cold, and I am hungry. Let me remind everyone watching how privileged I am to be tired, cold, and hungry," Florida Rep. Ted Deutch said during the sit-in. "These are feelings that I am privileged to have because so many will never feel that again," he added, referring to victims of gun violence. more >>
Evolutionary biologist and famous atheist author Richard Dawkins says the stroke he suffered earlier this year has not changed his belief that nothing comes after death.
Dawkins said during an interview with BBC that he is doing fine physically following a stroke he suffered in February, which forced him to cancel a number public appearances, including Washington D.C.'s "Reason Rally" earlier in June.
