Catholic Husband

About

Hi! My name is Chet.

This is a personal blog focused on sharing my experiences and lessons learned in the married life. I’ve been writing here since 2013 with Alison, my wife, serving as my editor since the very beginning. I’m a stay-at-home dad with three kids under 5.

About Catholic Husband

Shortly after Alison and I got married in 2012, I developed an intense desire to write. I’ve always enjoyed writing, having fallen in love during my high school years. I studied Philosophy at Franciscan University of Steubenville (where Alison and I met). Writing is the primary way that I develop my thoughts and process my experiences.

There are plenty of resources, magazines, articles and blogs for wives and brides-to-be, but few helps for men looking to be the best husband that they could be. On March 19, 2013, Catholic Husband launched.

Since then, I’ve experimented with different publishing schedules, offerings, and opportunities to connect. Right now, I’m focused on writing great blog posts and recording the short form Catholic Husband Podcast. I’ve written two books, The Transition: A Practical Guide to Engagement for Men and Grant Us Peace.

There are over 785 unique blog posts on the Catholic Husband blog covering a range of topics including fatherhood, Catholic life, and careers. All of these posts have been written with the intention of helping you to love, lead, & serve your family.

I hope that you find Catholic Husband to be useful in your life and your marriage!

Get Started

If you're brand new to Catholic Husband, it may be overwhelming to know where to start. I've put together a few of my all time favorite (and most popular) blog posts for you to enjoy!

Dear Benedict, Live Purely


I wanted to write you this letter because it’s my responsibility to help you grow into the man that you were made to be. You were created with a very specific purpose in the course of Salvation History. Your mother and I are so privileged and honored to have you in our lives. You are a constant source of joy and fulfillment to me personally and to our marriage. You are truly the fruit of our love.

Impeach Francis


I seldom take the time to read editorials. While the premise is good, the execution scarcely follows through. They tend to be pejorative, one-sided, and offer little intellectual value to the conversation. Instead, they simply validate those who already agree with a particular viewpoint and shut out the rest. I came across what ended up being a rather amusing editorial in which the author suggested that Pope Francis should resign. Furthermore, should he decline such an enticing offer, the faithful should force him out of office.

Pam, Porn, & Paul


There’s no renewal without conversion. There’s no mercy without justice. There’s no Resurrection without the Cross. These axioms define what it means to be a Christian. Our lives must be in a constant state of renewal as we conform ourselves to Christ.

Bible in Your Life


I want to share something with you that made an outsized impact on my life last year. For me, 2017 was full of change and new circumstances. In the midst of all of that instability, I noticed that I placing my hope for happiness in the wrong places.
