So, the difference here is incredibly small, but still present, nonetheless, and deserves some attention.I’m sure you’ve all heard your grandma or mother say, “why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free”, at some point in your lives.When asked if he had a girlfriend yet, or if he was dating anyone, this freshly minted man stated, “I don’t date…I court”.

This was usually done in a private setting, such as the girl’s home, and monitored by people closest to her, such as her parents.

In this case, my understanding has always been that the man was interested in the possibility of marrying the girl in question, but had to make his intentions known not only to her, but also to her family, which would explain why he showed up at her house in the first place, donned in his Sunday best, holding flowers in his shaky hands.

Once Daddy isn’t watching, both the girl and guy are free to do whatever they please, without the pressure to tie the knot.

Although this doesn’t mean all dating couples are dropping their pants, it does ease the pressure of stating your intentions from the get-go; accountability has been lost with the element of ‘dating’.

Please feel free to spread the word to your friends, especially guys. Now, the website is not up and running, but you can view a sampling of what to expect here. On the one hand, we do want to encourage singles to pursue marriage if that is their heart’s desire.

On the other hand, one does have to wonder about how we are to understand this website in the light of Candice’s books and articles.

Are parents, teachers, or youth pastors slacking off when it comes to discussing this topic with young people, or is this whole notion of there even being a difference between the two words unfounded?

According to Skip Burzumato of , in “the early 20th century, courtship involved one man and one woman spending intentional time together in order to get to know each other with the expressed purpose of evaluating the other as a potential husband or wife”.

And because I’m not content to simply talk about how women are finding very little help to marry well, I’m also thrilled to be able to tell you that we are hard at work developing a next generation dating service, coming soon to a community near you.
