I sometimes get comments asking me when I’m going to marry my partner. This is a personal decision that I don’t *need* to answer, but I’m happy to share part of our logic/reasoning.

It will be a few years. And there are a few specific reasons.
I want to see my partner get out of debt before we marry.

That’s important to me and she’s agreed.

The second piece is that want her to have a small nest egg that is completely hers.

Power dynamics in marriage are important to me. And changing them in a positive direction.
Not that I ever would—but if I ever went off the rails and became toxic or abusive—I want her to have “walk-away” power with me.

Especially as a woman with a disability—I want her to have a few months savings that I don’t control and that aren’t part of our shared assets.

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

1. Our world is changing and in light of the various changes that go on in our environment, we must bear in mind that some things will never change. #Marriage
2. The principles of God will never change. God made man, decided that it was not good for him to be alone and that His purpose cannot be fulfilled without the woman; so He made her and the first family was born. #Marriage
3. We are designed to accomplish God’s purposes in cooperation with others (Gen. 2:18). This happens through the family, community, church, organisations, and nations. Working together multiplies our capacity to produce results in geometric progression. #Marriage

1. God’s original intention for our universe includes billions of humans, probably more. In God’s original plan, it was not just one man; obviously God saw billions of people that He will need to fulfill His plan on this planet. #Marriage
2. Man’s original purpose is to manage the earth on God’s behalf. So, God created one man and one woman for the propagation of human race. Genesis 2:18 #Marriage
3. I believe that the composite idea in the creation of the man and woman was for them to have dominion of this planet. God gave man the capacity to dominate this planet and part of the capacity God gave him was the reproduction after his own kind. #Marriage

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

The only list you need when it comes to looking for a life partner is the one that details your values, your non-negotiable values, what you have to offer & how you want them to make you feel & visa versa. Material things shouldn’t be on this list, they come & go. #relationships
If you have no idea of what your values are they you won’t be able to stand by them or recognise when they Re being compromised. What are the values that you need your life partner to hold? If you don’t know you won’t recognise when they don’t have them.
It this lack of clarity that gets us into trouble, we can’t listen to an intuition that we haven’t cultivated.
