Purity rings, purity vows, purity ceremonies, and dances were popular for a few decades among Christian groups.  But, problems developed when the little boys didn’t grow up and girls couldn’t get married. Immaturity dominated, on-line porn took the boys down; and combining vows of celibacy with a delay of marriage (and a reputation of young marriages) was a killer for evangelicals. Why aren’t our young men getting married?  Why aren’t our girls getting married?   The just will live by faith, and they will marry by faith.  The breakdown of faith involves the breakdown of family.  We give some practical advice for young people on getting married in this short segment.
