"Duck Dynasty" newlyweds John Luke and Mary Kate Robertson recently shared what they believe to be the secret to a lasting marriage, two months after they exchanged vows in a televised wedding.
While some critics have openly questioned the couple's decision to marry at ages 19, John Luke believes that it's one's commitment to faith, and not age, that determines the success of any marriage. The pair said "I do" in a country-style wedding at the Robertson family farm in West Monroe, Louisiana, on June 27, and they recently settled into their new lives together as college students at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
"As far as relationships and marriage goes, we've discovered that the ones that put God first in their relationship last and the ones who put themselves first don't," John Luke said, according to Richmond.com. more >>

The woman who helped comedian Sherri Shepherd and her ex-husband, Lamar Sally, by carrying their baby has sworn off surrogacy, saying that her negative experience has completely turned her off from such arrangements.
In 2014, Shepherd made headlines when it was revealed that the former "The View" co-host backed out of a surrogacy arrangement that she and Sally had made with their surrogate, Jessica Bartholomew, while Bartholomew was already five months pregnant.
Shepherd, who split from Sally before the birth of their surrogate baby, had changed her mind about the child when her marriage began to crumble, which ultimately sparked a bitter and very public custody dispute, and Bartholomew, 33, says that the experience emotionally scarred her. more >>
Many Christians wrote to John Piper to ask whether Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk, did the right thing by refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in defiance of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling, for which she spent six days in jail. The theologian responded to the question in the "Ask Pastor John" podcast.
"I think she is right in rejecting so-called same sex marriage as contrary to God's design for what marriage is," said Piper, who served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota, for 33 years.
"And she is right in assessing this departure from God's will as massive, not marginal, and as personally and culturally deadly, not trivial. And therefore it's not something that you can just go along with as if that were a loving thing to do," Piper added. more >>
Since the Supreme Court's infamous decision on June 26th to redefine marriage, our ideological opponents have openly mocked us. "Your side lost," they shout. "It's over! Just crawl into a corner and lick your wounds."
Even before the Supreme Court's decision, many conservative activists had already capitulated and thrown in the towel, urging us to consolidate our losses and move on. When it comes to homosexual issues, they assured us, the culture wars are over.
And that was prior to June 26th. more >>
