The Compleat Courtship
The Compleat Courtship candidly addresses the major issues confronting young lovers; when to begin dating, how to ask for or accept a date, how far a couple should go in necking and petting, how to break up, how to survive a break-up, how to judge love, premarital sex, how to know if you are ready for marriage, the purpose of an engagement, where to go and what to do on a honeymoon, the joys and tensions during the first year of marriage, and much more.
Most people enjoy a love story—whether it’s a book, a movie, a song, or a well-matched couple in the neighbourhood. But all too often romantic notions distort our concept of courtship and marriage. Not that romance is bad—but all of us have to admit in our more reflective moments that life involves more than stars in the eyes.
Browse through your local bookstore. The shelves bow under the weight of books that advise couples on how to savor married life and that coach parents on how to cope with children. But how many books offer down-to-earth suggestions for couples who date?
Surely if we are intelligent enough to put men on the moon and satellites in orbit around Saturn, anticipating and avoiding the hazards that might destroy the venture, it should not be beyond our ability to devise a plan for marriage preparation that would eliminate the hazards of that undertaking.
