Worthy Thoughts Regarding
Courtship and Marriage


The kindest and the happiest pair,
Will oft' find reason to forebear,
And something every day they live,
To pity and perhaps forgive.
- William Cowper -



All that Flutters Is not Love
A few thoughts from Nate Saint


Quotes to ponder regarding courtship and marriage:

Find a man who holds himself to the standard of Christ, and see if he is accountable to any other men. What are those men like? A loner, a self-made man, is suspect.
Steve Van Nattan

There is no more lovely, friendly and charming
relationship, communion or company
than a good marriage. 
Martin Luther

Girls, don't make the mistake of marrying
the whole fellow because you are in love
with his handsome face.

Being ready for a wedding is not a good
indicator that you are ready for a marriage.

Life is too long to be married to wrong person
and too short to be married to the right one.

The man who will not act until he
knows all will never act at all. - Jim Elliot




A Solution to the Kissing Question

Many people think kissing goes with dating and flirting, no questions asked. Others say it should only be done after engagement. We hold that it should be saved exclusively for the wedding and after. Until then, if folks would strictly adhere to this principle, a lot of people would stay out of trouble! Enjoy.   :-)

Paying the Bill

Walking up to a department store's fabric counter, a pretty girl asked, "I want to buy this material for a new dress. How much does it cost?"

"Only a kiss a yard," replied the smirking male clerk.

"That's fine," replied the girl. "I'll take ten yards."

With expectation and anticipation written all over his face, the clerk hurriedly measured out and wrapped the cloth, then held it out teasingly.

The girl snapped up the package and pointed to the little old man standing beside her. "Grandpa will pay the bill," she said.


1 Corinthians 7:1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
