Deal Breaker Question for the ladies: Let’s say you’re single and a FANTASTIC guy wants to marry you. He’s incredibly attractive. Smart, handsome, a provider and protector. Spiritually mature kinda guy. Loves kids and “gets” you. ONE little quirk: He wears big floppy clown shoes. Yes, they squeak when he walks. He will them for the rest of his life. That’s just how he rolls. That’s his only quirk. Otherwise, he’s AWESOME. Do you marry him?

I’ve gotten that frustrated with it. It’s time to grow up and love people.” “People get judgmental about me having a bowl of Parmesan cheese for dinner. That hurts.” “Grown man hiding behind a couch to avoid some kid in a Superman outfit. That’s how I roll.”
Two well-known celebrities have gone public about their decision to remain sexually pure until marriage.
Bethany Hamilton, the subject of the movie Soul Surfer, says “Growing up I was blessed to have parents that stayed together, and to have that husband and wife image. I wanted an awesome husband that would love and support me until I die.
Bethany says “I also wanted to honor God with the way that I approached [marriage]. I definitely was patient and I didn’t mess around.” In fact Bethany says her husband is the only guy I’ve ever kissed.” By the way, Bethany has a new book out that talks about some of those issues. It’s called Body & Soul: A Girl’s Guide to a Fit, Fun and Fabulous Life:
And a well-known male TV star is talking about his decision to remain abstinent until marriage.
Duck Dynasty’s Jase Robertson says “I’m proud [that I was a virgin when I got married]. That was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do in my entire life.
In an interview with Fox News, Jase said “What I did was when I started dating girls I would quickly tell them on the first date as soon as they got in the car. I’d say, ‘Look I will not treat you inappropriately at any point in our relationship.’
According to Jase, when he said that, a couple of girls actually got out of the car! But he says, “My wife, [Missy], she really loved the idea that she felt secure with me, like I had a direction I was taking.”
By the way, if you’re a parent with teens or pre-teens at home, an excellent book on this topic is called “Pure Excitement: A Godly Look at Sex, Love and Dating.”
If you have younger kids, I’d recommend the series “God’s Design for Sex” by Stan and Brenna Jones. That series features a different booklet for each stage of development, starting with 0-3 year-olds and going all the way up to the teen years.
