    In response to the article on: “Divorce and the Bible Belt.” I value southern traditions, not the point of hardcore devotion but I think some southern practices are good–in a biblical sense, good. As a 24 year old young man the world tells me to prolong marriage, establish yourself, date, be sexually promiscuous, and do all of this in an effort to “figure out what you want.” (relational strategies practiced in northern states) Here’s the thing: the world doesn’t honor God’s command to flee from sexual immorality. The article says the added pressure to remain abstinent drives people to early marriage, and this could be true, but it certainly is not the cause for prevalent divorce in southern states. The problem is our culture and the hearts of young people. The age of adolescences (fostered by society) creates an immaturity that puts a strain on married couples. I believe in young families, I’ve seen it work, but young families have to come out of the worlds system and operate at a level of maturity that is above the worlds standards.
