Something about this specific message at church really hit home with me. And I'm not even a parent! It made me think of all the things I didn't know while dating and more importantly, what I want my future daughter to know when she hits dating age.
I want her to know that she doesn't have to settle. Once upon a time, when I was dating this guy (a bunch of years older than me, I, in my infinite wisdom, just knew I was supposed to marry him. Number one, I was wrong. Number two, I was so, so wrong.
