A few good finds…
Fredricca Matthews Green has a great article on young people that get married and sexual desires of young people via. I really appreciated this article because I think she’s saying thing that the church doesn’t realize in many ways.
Here are some quotes from it.
Marital durability has more to do with the expectations and support of surrounding society than with the partners’ age.
A pattern of late marriage may actually increase the rate of divorce. During that initial decade of physical adulthood, young people may not be getting married, but they’re still falling in love. They fall in love, and break up, and undergo terrible pain, but find that with time they get over it. They may do this many times. Gradually, they get used to it; they learn that they can give their hearts away, and take them back again; they learn to shield their hearts from access in the first place. They learn to approach a relationship with the goal of getting what they want, and keep their bags packed by the door. By the time they marry they may have had many opportunities to learn how to walk away from a promise. They’ve been training for divorce.
My friend Kyle also has a great post recounting the top 10 moments that he had at Tyndale.
