New York, NY (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
YourTango.com, the premiere brand for love and relationships has launched Traditional Love, a new blog about how traditional beliefs and customs influence modern love.
The blog looks at love, dating, marriage and family through the lens of faith, politics, and moral values. With topics ranging from purity rings and dating as a Muslim to Christian sex and being a submissive wife, our bloggers talk openly and honestly about embracing and protecting traditional relationships in contemporary America.
"Conservative values and religion play a significant role in many people's love lives and are in the forefront of American culture. We are interested in exploring these issues across the spectrum and getting a variety of voices to weigh in: from celebrities making chastity vows to the traditional gender roles that a husband and wife choose to eschew or adopt," says Andrea Miller, YourTango Founder & CEO.
As a mainstream publication, YourTango has had success with content about decidedly untraditional relationships, including open marriage and polyamory. Traditional Love complements these posts by bringing conservative voices to the conversation. Traditional Love's diverse group of writers seeks to educate and inspire readers while promoting healthy debate and respectful discussion between like-minded readers and those with more liberal views.
"YourTango has been an active forum for people exploring the more liberal sides of love and marriage. We started Traditional Love because we want to engage people on the opposite end of the spectrum in the conversation about what it means to love and be loved in this day and age," Miller says.
Traditional Love will feature a rotating cast of guest bloggers, including:
Stu Gray, a writer, marriage educator and blogger dedicated to helping couples have happy marriages. In a divorce culture, Stu writes about how to make a marriage work.
Julie Siebert, a Christian blogger who focuses on sex and spirituality. She writes about how being a submissive wife can help your sex life.
Zeba Iqbal, the Vice-Chair of CAMP (Council for the Advancement of Muslim Professionals), who examines love and relationships through the lens of her Muslim faith.
Mara Manischewitz, a single Jewish woman who explores the intersection of love and religion.
Jay Reding, a conservative political blogger who looks at how the politics of love affect our culture.
Lyz Lenz, Traditional Love editor, who has chosen a traditional marriage in an untraditional world.
