The Manival #4

Well, it’s time once again for The Manival. For those of you who don’t know, the Manival is a weekly blog carnival dedicated to bring together posts from blogs by men and for men. If you would like to participate in next week’s Manival, please submit a post using this handy submission form [1].

Editor’s Choice: Cory Huff presents Avoid Cheating, Wandering Eyes [2] at A Good Husband [3]. If you’re married, you’ll definitely find this post helpful.

Rickey Henderson presents A Memo from the Office of Steven R. Lawlor, CPA, to Indiana Jones [4] posted at Riding with Rickey [5]. This is pretty funny. I’ve always wondered how Indy handles his taxes.

Corey Allan discusses how to control your tongue in a marriage [6] at The Simple Marriage Project [7].

Alessandro presents The case for Mr. Good Enough [8] at miserere.org [9]. He gives his take on the recent article in the Atlantic Monthly about women settling down instead of holding off for Mr. Right. I think this can apply to men as well. He segues into discussing the importance of family.

Jeremy presents 20 Kinds of Dads – Which One are You? [10] at Discovering Dad [11]. This is a great post about the different kinds of dads out there.

Jeff Tincher shares The Best Part of Putting My Son to Bed [12] at Daddys Toolbox [13]. Makes me want to have a kid so I can put them to bed.

Michael Gowin presents How to Read a Book (Illustrated) [14] at Michael Gowin’s Blog [15]. Don’t let the title fool you. This is actually a very helpful and thorough post. Try implementing some of Michael’s strategies while reading the Essential Man’s Library [16].

Bob presents The Green Green Cash at Home [17] posted at Stormbringer’s Thunder [18]. This post has some great advice on managing your money more wisely.

a husband presents Satisfy Your Hungry Eyes [19] at iamhusband.com [20]. Another take on not oogoling other women while you’re married. My favorite line from the post: “By starving your eyes from outside sexual stimulation, you can train your brain to define beauty based on the woman you sleep next to every night”

Andrew Flusche [21] discusses How to Handle Legal Issues Like a Man [22]. As a law student, I appreciated this post. This post has some great advice on how to handle yourself if you’re ever found in court. Bottom line: don’t be a tool and cooperate with people. It makes the whole process run much more smoothly.
