Marriage

I have heard so many men complain to me, “My wife is very high maintenance”. In most cases this statement shows a distinct lack of understanding of the fairer sex. The truth of the matter, from a man’s point of view, is all women are high maintenance. A man’s needs are very simple: food, s*x… Read More

Can”t Buy Love

When you Google 'Can't Buy Me Love', the famous song by Paul McCartney, first performed by the Beatles, way back in the sixties, 35 million references come up.  That just shows how influential the Beatles still are today, some 5 decades down the track. I'll buy you a diamond ring my friend, If it makes… Read More

Visit From the Marriage Auditor

VISIT FROM THE MARRIAGE AUDITOR Imagine you received a phone call that went something like this:  "Mr & Mrs Herald, we need to make an appointment with you to do a 'Marriage Audit'.  Can we make it 8.00pm tonight?  Thank you.  See you at 8.00pm." Marriage Audit?  I've heard of a tax audit, but what… Read More

The Mystery of the Basket

What is it about us men? But maybe I am just talking to myself here. So sorry for bringing you into it. I have always had this attitude. It’s called ‘separation of duties’. Sort of like saying to my wife, “You do your job and I will do mine”. My wife only worked for the… Read More

Marriage Matters

Many years ago I made a speech with my wife at a function in Parliament House, Canberra on the importance of mothers and fathers. Our goal was to encourage both the Liberal and Labor parties to value equally mothers and fathers after divorce, and not to follow the politically correct line that devalues fathers because… Read More

Passionate for Marriage

Alison and I have always been passionate about having a good marriage and supporting and encouraging marriages everywhere. That passion is not getting weaker but it is getting stronger as we get older. Maybe my main motivation is the pain I experienced from growing up in a divided home: when Mum went her way for… Read More

How to Love a Woman

People have said to me, “Warwick, if you could write a book about ‘How to Love a Woman’, you would be a millionaire overnight.” My problem is that every time I think I have learnt something about the art of loving a woman, and it is an art rather that a science, she changes, I… Read More

Business Time

Humour is usually the intersection of reality with the ridiculous. This can take many shapes and forms, but what I have noticed is that really good comedians are usually very good social commentators. I should have realised this the night I was doing a Fatherhood Seminar in Launceston. The title was ‘The Seven Secrets for… Read More

Things You Don’t Say to Your Wife

Some time ago I came across a Tim Hawkins’ video on YouTube. Tim Hawkins is a musical comedian with a difference. He made up some very interesting new words to the Green Day song, “Time of Your Life” and renamed it ‘Things You Don’t Say to Your Wife.’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iK2OakMoW_c&feature=related&safe=active The second verse goes like this… Read More

Keeping Love Alive

Some time ago I received a request to speak at a Fair Divorce Forum at a local Leagues Club in Wollongong. When I first received this invitation, my inclination was to 'not accept' because I don't believe that divorce can be fair. Life is not fair and neither is love. My good friend Jeff Dakers… Read More
