Publisher's Description

The church must release the stigma and teach young couples how to tie the knot.


Marrying young has become a downright countercultural move. It defies our cultural definition of marriage as a capstone that completes the life of the autonomous self but, when supported by a loving church, has the potential to put biblical ideas about the formative institution into practice.

    I totally agree with this article and share it with anyone I can especially during premarital counseling. As a young Christian who waited until marriage and dated in a safe and healthy way there was nothing more challenging to my faith then Christians during the time of our wedding filling us with doubts and worldly expectations. American Christians love the waiting aspect and abstinence but unfortunately when it comes to the future of their children and essentially making money way too much hypocrisy arises. Our children cannot serve two masters, but what this article says to remedy the situation takes work and it is not a problem that we can pay away as Christians.
