Really enjoyed your “Wedding Vows” article in the recent issue of Parks & Rec Business. It came at a very timely moment in my life. You are extremely lucky to have the strong family background from your grandparents and your children are very lucky to have that same support from you.

On the business side it really hits home with our park families too. You made the statement, “if we continue to lead and live in such a sloppy, self-centered manner, how can we expect our children to make the world a better place?”

Look at it this way “If we continue to lead and live in such a sloppy, self-centered manner, how can we expect our employees to make our parks a better place?”

Thanks for the great article.

Dear Ron,

I just read your article on marriage that you wrote…. you nailed it!

Excellent and well said. If you take any flack from anyone for your stand please take heart that you are in alignment with our Creator’s thoughts on the issue!

Thanks for being bold and speaking out on an issue that I believe is important even to the ongoing survival of our nation. Family/ marriage is key to the framework that upholds it.

Keep up the great work.

Your article WEDDING VOWS is great. I made copies for my kids they’re 28 and 32 of age. Thank you for writing it, wish everyone in recreation and outside of it will make an effort to read it.

Wedding Vows – “Where Have You Been?”

Mr. Ciancutti,

I just read your article, “Wedding Vows”. Wow, where have you’ve been? The idea that women are to stay home and wait for their husbands to come home and have dinner on the table is very arrogant and chauvinistic. How about the thousands of families dealing drugs, alcohol, not to mention all the other social issues? Are they to stay in those marriages, for the sack of the “I Do, Forever?”

I found your article to be totally out of place – it doesn’t belong in a parks and recreation professional magazine, rather it should be in a right-wing magazine.

For your information, I am married and have children and work a full-time job. My husband and I share the duties of the household, like it should be in every marriage.

It’s becoming more and more important for me to “come to grips with” what really matters in my life. And your article is a big help, personally.

Keep up the good work.
