There are so many books and speakers on the subject now. It has become a hot topic around many conservative families.
The thing we do agree with is a desire to maintain purity until marriage. There are also many things we disagree with. The couple misses so much that way. They miss learning to romance each other; they miss learning self-control; they miss a very fun and important part of their relationship. Every couple is different; their circumstances are different; their geographical distance is different; so there should not be just one mold.

They have chosen to have chaperones when in each others presence, because they like the accountability. Before courtship, we chose to allow them to communicate through something we called accountability texting. This may seem like an unnecessary process, but it served two purposes for us: It allowed them to guard their conversations before they were certain that they were ready to become more serious about their relationship.
This meant they focused their talk on really getting to know each other, rather than just repeating a lot of emotionally charged words before they were ready for that phase.
It made the whole family become close friends with Chad. This was one of the best and sweetest things we did! After courtship, they began to text direct and talk on the phone each morning and night. Obviously not…two people plus their families are involved when dealing with relationships.

They have made certain commitments because they want to be good role models for their younger siblings.
They have a genuine and refreshing Christ-like love for one another, because their goal is to help each other become closer to Christ as they become closer to one another.
