If you are not called to celibacy and you desire and feel called to marry, as I see it we often struggle in at least one of three ways. Some can’t get a date, some can’t get from a date to more, and some can’t make a commitment to marriage. I’ve been all three of those guys at one time or another in my 20+ years of singleness.
Here at this blog we’ve spent a lot of time talking about the first one. We’ve talked about attraction, what do we do when we are attracted and how do we approach women etc. We’ve talked a little about the third group. The idea that men can’t make a commitment is sort of an overblown sentiment. True there are some fears, habits, and various other things that can create that situation. But it’s not as many men as people make it out to be. At least not men that are following Jesus and living purely. I’ll have some more to say about this group later.
But today I want to focus on the second group. In one way or another, I think there are a lot of people stuck here.
