After reading his apology two months ago to several bloggers who have, like me, spent years blogging against the problems caused by the purity teachings promoted by Harris and others, I started listening with some optimism.

It is very likely that a percentage of your youth group is called to singleness and not to feel bad for people who just might not get married…and that they might actually not be the exception to the rule but that there is no rule.
Finding the “one” does not make you a better person, getting married in a certain time window does not make you more of an adult, and marrying the first person you love does not make you holier than others.
If that means getting married at 39 years old instead of your intended 22 years of age, then hallelujah for marrying someone who is a better fit for you instead of marrying so you can be married.
But most importantly: getting married and finding the “one” is not our life’s goal.
