Pressing for Marriage

with Ron Deal | December 18, 2018

Laura was a single mom with two teenagers who'd dated a guy for years and she was ready to get married. But he wasn't. "Am I being selfish," she asked me. Well, maybe not selfish, but certainly unwise. She overlooked the conflict between her daughter and her boyfriend. And she was convinced he would be a good father-figure to her son-even though he said he didn't really want to be. Quit ignoring air traffic control. Don't take off unless the pilot's onboard and everyone is safely in their seat.
