The Case for Early Marriage is a Case for Courtship

…The way out of this predicament, I would suggest, is for communities to come alongside young adults and encourage them to embrace intentional relationships and to embrace “the marriage idea”: the commitment to love and sacrifice for your spouse and family until death. In other words, for communities to rebuild marriage as a formative institution that guides young, passionate lovers to becoming old, mature lovers.And I emphasize the role of communities here, because it really does take a village to build and sustain a good marriage.
