James Roberts, Ph.D., The Ben H. Williams Professor of Marketing in the Hankamer School of Business, penned this column about smartphone use and its effects on relationships. Roberts references a study he co-authored with Baylor colleague Meredith David, Ph.D., assistant professor of marketing, which measured "phubbing" or "phone snubbing." Roberts wrote: "Something as seemingly innocent as using a smartphone in the presence of a romantic partner undermined the quality of the relationship. This can create a domino effect: As our study also showed, when we’re not happily in love, we are also less likely to be satisfied, overall, with life. We’re also more likely to report that we are depressed."

Wives who have a romantic view of marriage are less likely to do volunteer work for the wider community, leading their husbands to volunteer less as well, according to a Baylor study published in Sociological Perspectives journal. Researchers focused on whether couples took a "soul mate" view of marriage, making it their top priority; or whether they held a more traditional view, placing additional values on other marital functions, such as raising children and fulfilling financial needs. Quoted is lead author Young-Il Kim, Ph.D., research assistant professor in Baylor's Institute for Studies of Religion (ISR).

Jake Raabe, a student at Baylor University’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary, wrote this article on the meaning of Advent in light of the past year. “This year has been hard,” Raabe wrote. “For that reason, we should recapture what Advent meant to the first Christians who celebrated it. As we change out the colors and the decorations in our sanctuaries, and as we swap out the décor in our homes, let us remember why we do these things: They remind us of God’s first entrance into the world and help us anticipate the second.”
