Reality Relationships?

Random Questions

For the record, I have never watched a single episode of The Bachelor. I couldn’t care less. But when went to pay for my groceries, I walked by the magazines and saw this. Unbelievable, in a sad, pathetic way.

bachelor virginI don’t want to say too much. All I want to do is ask some questions. You don’t even have to answer them; I just have to get them off my chest.

  1. What kind of blooming idiots think, after the first season of this nonsense, that true love is being picked from a list of narrowed-down options?
  2. Who seriously believes anyone in Hollywood is still a virgin?
  3. So, Mr. Lowe, how do you feel about a dozen non-virtuous, camera-hungry females fighting for your affection?
  4. What kind of real woman would sit by and wait for a guy to decide between some other woman and her? Most real women would say, “H@#*, no!”
  5. What does it say about people when they are “stunned” to hear someone is saving himself for marriage? Were they expecting to be treated with respect by a guy would sleep with every girl in the line-up?
  6. What does it say about your dating habits when you go to a “Fantasy Suite” for a date, but find it awkward – because there won’t be any sex?
  7. How shallow and pitifully void of morality is the idea of “coping” with a “sexless engagement?”
  8. Who actually thinks this is a good way to find wife?
  9. What kind of mother says to her daughter, “I’m so proud of how you fought off all those other girls and won a man that had a hard time deciding between you and that other contestant!”?
  10. Are you kidding me? THIS is reality?

Random Verses

“Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” – Hebrews 13:4 ESV

“But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.” – 1 Corinthians 7:2 ESV

“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” – Proverbs 31:10 KJV

A Final Thought

I wonder how a real dad with a real shotgun would influence Mr. Bachelor’s decision making process? I don’t guess that matter much, though, since it seems Sean Lowe picked his bride to be.

Hope it works out, bubba. Reality is tough on a marriage made in fantasy land.

  1. Amen! On Good Morning America today they announced that the wedding will be televised as well. Who cares??

  2. They call it reality tv when nothing could be further from the truth. I wonder if people watch this stuff to stamp their own rationalizations and lifestyles with approval. No wonder we have the culture and problems we have.

    If we could only receive the Father’s love and find intimacy with Him. The church fails at this and therefore the nation. We were designed for intimacy first with Him, then with each other, brokenness and all. Yet we put up our posers and work so hard to be acceptable (like the women on the show), sacrificing who we really are in the process.

  3. Thinking back to our own engagement…we didn’t have to cope with the sexlessness, we had to survive it! It was sort of an adventure and helped us grow closer together. But man, we would never want to do it over. Yeesh! (Way too much information–I sort of apologize.)

    • I just finished the first chapter in your book (in tears, btw). Will you be covering this type of material in the upcoming chapters? 😉

      • Ah, no. Not unless an angel of the Lord stands in my living room and commands me to write a book on…ahem…romantic activity would I ever write about this subject. Shannon Ethridge has my full support. Write, Shannon, write!

      • My wife just asked me, “I wonder what that book is about (by Etheridge)?” I said, “I can’t even imagine.”

      • Oh, have your wife look it up this weekend. It’s spicy. But biblically sound, as far as I can tell. (It’s called The Sexually Confident Wife). I can’t believe I even typed that title in, that’s how little I want to do with writing about the subject.
