Quotes to Consider:
John Calvin on I Cor. 7:37: "... this passage
serves to establish the authority of parents, which ought to be held
sacred ... in disposing of children in marriage, the authority of
parents is of first-rate importance, provided they do not tyrannically
abuse it ... the deliberations of parents ought to be regulated with a
view to the advantage of their children. Let us bear in mind,
therefore, that this limitation is the proper rule—that children allow
themselves to be governed by their parents, and that they on the other
hand, do not drag their children by force to what is against their
inclination, and that they have no other object in view, in the
exercise of their authority, than the advantage of their children."
Rev. C. Hanko on courtship: "Above all, you
simply must agree on your doctrinal and spiritual convictions. Nothing
cuts deeper than a spiritual breach between two persons. Nothing is
worse than a realm of ‘I must not talk about that,’ especially when
this deals with what is most precious to you: your faith. I do not say
you must always agree on everything you talk about ... you must be of
the same doctrinal and religious convictions. That is simply a must.
If you contemplate being joined at some future date in the permanent
bond of marriage, you must be of one heart and one mind when it comes
to your spiritual life ... Never try to convince yourselves that time
is bound to obliterate any religious differences between you ... If
you agree doctrinally, and are both spiritually minded in your outlook
on life, you already have a sound basis for a happy marriage" (Leaving
Father and Mother, p. 12).
