Some of the specific challenges I identified were: So I founded Practical
Its purpose: to instigate a national conversation about how to make courtship more practical. Then couples who did get married through courtship started getting divorced.
“How can you tell who you want to marry if you aren’t going out on dates? I ignored their advice on relationships, preferring to listen to the young people around me who were passionate advocates of courtship.Bill ordered a glass of beer, took a long swig and nearly thrown up from its disgusting taste.He handed it back to the waitress and told her that he is not going to pay for this piss.She haughtily took the glass, looked into it and then poured the beer over his face.He pulled down the front of her top revealing swaying mounds of her tits and she tried to smash the glass on his head.
I guess that’s why I told my wife I loved her on our second date. This fire was burning in me, a fire that burned just like that second date: I was in love. Marriage, quicker than I was ready for, did this thing: it started sucking away that emotion. In other words, it was in the practicality that I found the love I was looking for. That fire I felt, it was simply that: emotional fire. I think that might be a big part of the reason the divorce rate is so high in this country. It’s time that we changed the conversation about love. Because until we do, adultery will continue to be common.
