    Mark and Melissa, great job! I love the part about getting to know each other as brother and sister; to relate, to respect, and know each other. I would love a good honest relationship with a man to learn and to enjoy, have a good fun time enjoying life! I hope this isn’t understood to mean I’m looking for a husband I am not. I’ve not known many males in my life and would like to cultivate some, I need to learn how to negotiate, share ideas, and have common grounds of interest.
    Thanks again and keep them coming.

    • Its a tricky thing in our culture, but one that needs to be applied in a healthy way. We must learn to love and honor each other as brother and sister or else we will miss out on the blessing God has for the family of God. Great healing can be found in that!
