People attempting to follow a courtship model within today's culture, however, often run into a lot of practical questions, such as, "What if her dad is unavailable or uninterested in being involved?
" or "What do you do when you live hundreds of miles from your family?
The “Christian culture” has done quite a number on this topic, hasn’t it? We’ve added a ton of rules, and sprinkled them with even more rules.
The system today's young men and women have inherited for finding and marrying a future spouse leaves a lot to be desired.Other messages have stressed that Christians need to be much more counter-cultural.Joshua Harris, for instance, has promoted a model of courtship that harkens back to a model used broadly before modern dating evolved."
