Really good marital advice from Maureen Dowd? She's undoubtedly smart, knows her politics and isn't afraid to give a lacerating opinion in one of the most prestigious newspapers in the world, but relationship advice? And then to find out the real source of this advice is a 79 year-old celibate priest? Yes, it's true. Her op-ed piece last Sunday, An Ideal Husband, is wise and practical, maybe too wise and practical for romance, but great for marriage. Mothers should have their daughters read it if only to plant the seed of good judgment; fathers should have their sons read it to give them an ideal for which to aspire. But of course that will never happen.
