I’m over at the Washington Post today!

Hey, guess what? I’m over at the Washington Post today writing about love! The Washington Post’s online religion section is doing a Valentines Day series and asked me to write “An Atheist’s Guide to Love.” (Many thanks to Hemant for recommending me to them!)

Given the lack of atheist dogma, this is a very individual thing. Many atheists marry and raise children together, others get divorced, and still others choose not to marry, or form alternative families or engage in polyamory. As an atheist, there’s no set rule for what a family or a relationship is supposed to look like. Instead, it’s up to you.

Libby Anne grew up in a large evangelical homeschool family highly involved in the Christian Right. College turned her world upside down, and she is today an atheist, a feminist, and a progressive. She blogs about leaving religion, her experience with the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements, the detrimental effects of the "purity culture," the contradictions of conservative politics, and the importance of feminism.
