They offend me a lot.
They make presumptions about what a Catholic man “should be” and are just as bad as anyone saying that a Catholic woman “should be” a certain way.

I make the Good Catholic Husbands posts and I can say very clearly that they are called “good catholic husbands”, plural, for a reason. No ONE person can or should ever be all of these things. I also picked different men to further that idea, that they are different husbands in different marriages. They are also meant to be fun, lighthearted examples of devoutness, some more silly than others. I clear most of them with my actual Catholic husband, who is not all of these things, and my Catholic sponsor, who works for the Diocese of Phoenix and speaks on Theology of the Body for the Catholic church. I understand if some of them are not for you, but they have helped me a great deal and my marriage has actually gotten stronger since making them. And believe me, my husband is far from perfect. ;) And I love him exactly the way he is.
