Grow old with me! The best is yet to be. ~ Robert Browning
Love is a process, not just a feeling. It produces action. Being married is no different.
Hello, I’m Corey Allan (if you want to be formal it’s Dr. Corey Allan, but we’re pretty informal here) and I’m glad you’ve stopped by.
I’m a husband, father, author, speaker, as well as a Marriage and Family Therapist with a Ph.D. in Family Therapy.
What’s Simple Marriage all about?
The main belief - life is choice (so is marriage). Therefore I choose to:
- Grow deeper Spiritually
- Keep it simple
- Be passionate
- Live in community with others
- Enjoy the ride
Marriage is more about becoming a better human than it is about the two people being happy. And when you keep things simple, you can experience more in marriage and life.
While most anyone can enjoy the ideas and thoughts expressed here, Simple Marriage’s target is: individuals involved in a committed relationship that wish to experience more passion and adventure in life and relationships.
That is what marriage really means: helping one another to reach the full status of being persons, responsible and autonomous beings who do not run away from life. ~ Paul Tournier
Simple Marriage also has a few monthly columnists who add their take on an aspect of marriage and family life.
The true man wants two things; danger and play. For that reason he wants a woman, as the most dangerous plaything. ~ Friedrich W. Nietzsche
As for me, I’ve been married to my wife for 19 years and we have 2 children.
We are also followers of Christ and believe that a vibrant and alive Christian marriage is vital to the world and God’s Kingdom. While this is not a blog about my theology, much of my beliefs and perspectives are shaped by my relationship with Christ and other believers so this will come out in some of my writing.

For a marriage relationship to flourish, there must be intimacy. It takes an enormous amount of courage to say to your spouse, “This is me. I’m not proud of it — in fact, I’m a little embarrassed by it — but this is who I am. ~ Bill Hybels
