Early Marriage: Cure for Temptation?

Filed under: Christian, evangelism, marriage — Tags: , , , , , , , — paulthinkingoutloud @ 5:53 pm

When an article in Christianity Today online is closing in on 200 comments — and they keep coming — you know they’ve struck a nerve.

Skim the article, but by all means, don’t miss all the responses; and don’t expect that all those comments are going to agree.     And save the link (underlined section below).   Someone you know may want to read this article.

UPDATE – AUGUST 9 — The article has been picked up by ABC News.    See their version here.

  1. I was intrigued by the view that marriage be considered as part of our formation rather than something to do when you are fully formed. It seems to me that we go through major redefinitions of self about every ten years. So, if a thirty year old believes that they have reached maturity and are marriage-ready, they will likely have redefined considerably by the time they are 50. I know many 60 and 70 year olds that are still learning how to love and be wise.

    At any age, the issues of learning to love come to the forefront. Love in not fully tested until you have experienced better/worse, richer/poorer and sickness/health. Love without the tensions is not really love.
