In our society today, is the idea of marriage really a form of camouflaged male victimization that aptly serves its purpose domestically?
Is it a mystery that so-called "bliss in marriage" is mostly seen and felt by the female gender........but diametrically mostly 'not so' by their male counterpart?
What are the practicing variables that fuel this disparity in opinion and experience?
However, how do you personally feel about marriage, as a whole, and its relationship to your Happiness?

Proclaim It Radio presents Deric Muhammad. . . More than an Activist.
Deric Muhammad believes that man is given power for one reason; and that is to serve others. Muhammad is an accomplished Houston-based Activist/Organizer who addresses issues on Social Justice, Black Male Development, Police Brutality, Racial Inequality and other critical topics. He prides himself in being an “on the ground watchman” of Freedom, Justice and Equality for the Black community and other poor, underserved, disenfranchised communities.
At the age of 11 his father died & his mother struggled with an addiction to drugs that she, later in life, overcame. Deric was raised in an environment where drugs, gang violence, prostitution, police brutality and other “social cancers” were prominent. This is important to know, because it verifies that Muhammad addresses these issues based on vast knowledge and personal experience. Like countless Black men who came before him, he changed his life around through his studies as a member of the Nation of Islam. He hosts an annual “Smart’n Up” Black Male Summit that deals with the unique issues that Black men and boys face in society.
In 2009 he independently produced and starred in a critically acclaimed documentary called “Raising Boys: Tips for Single Moms” that addressed the plight of Black women raising sons in the absence of a father. He recently launched a Houston-based Black Male Initiative called Project FORWARD that focuses on Stopping Inner-City Violence and creating Economic Development. His writings have been published in many newspapers. Muhammad has been, for years, seen on local and national television stations addressing the tough issues faced by Black people in America. He says that he is unashamed of his love for Black people and thanks God every day for giving him the honor of serving his community.

This month, Suzane welcomes special guest, Bruce Davis.
Bruce is the author of Simple Peace – the Inner Life of St Francis, The Heart of Healing, Monastery Without Walls, My Little Flowers, and The Calling of Joy and, most recently, Love Letters: Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi Meet Pope Francis. As one of the world’s leading secular authorities on the inner life of the revered saint, Davis - who for many years resided in Assisi - is ideally suited to retrace these steps from a fictional standpoint. But he does so with a purpose - to shed light on whether the new namesake Pope can really renew the first Francis’ promise of a compassionate and humble church that protects the poor and underserved.
Much like the subject of his works, Bruce prefers to live a modest and unpretentious life with his wife Ruth. They cater to others who seek the beauty and grace of silence.
One of the world’s leading authors on the power of silence, Bruce Davis for the past 12 years, has been teaching and guiding people in the art of silence. Today, he writes, speaks and coaches people on the art of being silent and the joys that come from it.
Through the years, Bruce studied and lived with spiritual teachers in India, Philippines, Germany and Indonesia. For many years, he and Ruth led a program of taking teenagers from one of America's wealthiest communities into the poorest neighborhood of San Francisco to give food to people living in the streets.
A spiritual psychologist and teacher of world religions, Bruce has been leading retreats worldwide since 1983. Davis gently guides the daily retreat meditations at Silent Stay. His work is based in his deep connection to silence, simplicity and heartfulness. He writes an ongoing column in the Huffington Post on the Gifts of Silence.
