Several times each school year, I speak to our college students at Trevecca during a chapel service. Last year, I wrote a book, Human Sexuality , which explored this subject. That sense of ambiguity is rooted in the fact that you are a generation that has grown up in homes that have been less stable than homes of generations. This is an area that frightens me and maybe the best thing I can do is somehow protect myself from getting into this kind of relationship.

Scott Stanley says relationships have moved from a practice of deciding to a practice of sliding. Want to go study? Want to go to the Hub? The Cube? The coffee shop? You want to go do something like that? Where we once decided and committed to get to know a person through the process of dating, we now try to slide into relationships with no devotion or definition attached to them. The essence of commitment is making a choice to give up other choices. It is to declare through communication where a relationship is and where you are in it. But our culture is so ripe with anxiety attachment that it just feels safer not to do that, not to decide.

There are serious problems with this in terms of our development as people who could one day be headed toward very serious commitments of marriage. According to recent surveys, you still want to get married. So, here you are in a dating culture that has abandoned the very rituals that lead toward that thing that you so want. So I want to say to Trevecca [and all college] students, reclaim the kind of dating relationships that build great marriages! Do it for the sake of a witness to God in this world. Do it for the sake of children that need to be born.
