On November 19, Katy Case entered into a courtship relationship with a young man, with the intent that she would marry him.  I’m very excited for her, in that she has left one stage of life and is preparing to walk into another.

I believe that part of the way to fix the current erosion of the institution of marriage lies in not only speaking out about those that would change the definition, but helping those that are going to be or are in marriages to respect it as well.  To that end, I believe that the courtship movement illustrates a series of good philosophies that any parent should employ to help their children during the transition between child and adult, between single and married.

What Do You Think About Dating?

October 21st, 2008 Viewed 2010 times

A CoupleBelieve it or not, not all couples got married because they sampled a variety of girls out there and “found true love.”  In fact, for centuries marriages were arranged while the couple was both children.  In some cases marriages were arranged around country’s treaties or the exchange of cattle.

The concept of dating and marrying for love is something that’s new, and that’s done a great damage to our culture because it’s put too much emphasis on a feeling and not enough on a commitment.

Never Alone

One of the realities of dating and purity is that your flesh wants to spend more time alone, and it is then that you are the most vulnerable.

What I’m not saying is that you will do something.  I’m also not saying that you shouldn’t spend one-on-one time with the girl/guy that you’re dating.  You’ll need to have the opportunity to talk, and you’ll want to discuss things that aren’t necessarily appropriate for a group of people.

Today we mourn the passing of Chivalry.  He had a long and lustrous career—placing women in an exalted place and generally being an all around good guy.

He served until a ripe old age, and is survived by his step brothers, Cohabit and Lazy.

Mourning his passing are the very people that caused his passing—the Feminists.

5 Reasons the Nice Girl Thinks She’s Ignored

It’s the question most asked after the guy doesn’t ask you out on the date or doesn’t call after the date. It’s especially asked when the guy tells you that he just wants to be friends. Willow expresses the opening of her frustration this way (warning use of the f word on the linked site):

Why is it that the nice girls are overlooked, those who become friends and nothing more, who spend hours fixating upon their looks and their personalities and their actions because it must be they that are doing something wrong. Why is it that because we don’t give it up on the first date, we don’t want to play mind games, we provide a comforting hug and a supportive audience for a story we’ve heard a thousand time, they cant see it?
