That’s the bold assertion of Richard Tait, a new addition to the MDB community, in a recent post on his blog. The assertion is especially odd in light of a recurring theme of our most recent General Conference, in which the importance of marriage was raised frequently (or seemingly incessantly if you are a single, recently returned missionary).
“If you want to enjoy a long, happy marriage, you have to be committed to being a big loser. In fact, it’s best if you are both losers,” writes Richard.

Richard blogs from Maryland, where he is the proud father of a returned-missionary son and a high school senior daughter. Richard writes that he’s been “married to the same woman for 25 years, and its been the best 22 years of my life.”
His blog is called Mormon Third Eye and sports an eerie banner that is the kind of thing that would confirm my suspicions as a kid that my mom had one: an all seeing eye that could tell from the other side of the house who had his hand in the cookie jar.
Welcome Richard and the Mormon Third Eye to MDB.
