My dad said his dad gave him one line’s worth of sex ed: If she’s good enough to sleep with she’s good enough to marry.
My dad married his high school sweetheart and (so far) has had 58 years of married life and 12 children with her. I don’t think it even occurred to him to separate sex, marriage, and having children. They were all one package, and so far the same has held true for all his children and grandchildren. He’s in a nursing home and can hardly think of his family without crying for joy at how blessed he’s been. When my Mom has to leave him there to go back home they kiss like they were still high school sweethearts; it tears her apart to not have him home.
That’s not the cheap stuff people fling around every day. That’s the real gold. I pray there will still be people with that kind of love, commitment, and understanding of God’s plan for my children to spend a life with.
Thank you for sharing that beautiful story. I pray the same thing for my children daily. God bless you all!
Thanks for the excellent post!
Wow! Thank you for sharing. Your family is truly blessed to have such an example to follow. I’ve been married to my sweetheart for almost 19 years. I pray we have many, many more.
Beautiful story of your parents who have lived their lives in the kind of relationship that God intended a man and woman to share. Such love, stability, and commitment bless the generations to come and truly glorify God.
Your father was right.I feel the same way myself.Something else that sickens me is that it is now acceptable to have kids out of wedlock. If she’s good enough to knock up she’s good enough to marry!
