Today's Q&A on Boundless is from the archives. Thanks to Ted for running an old column when I missed my deadline for the second time. Though I had a good reason! (Isn't that always the case?) This time it really was. We were slammed with fun and challenging activities last week gearing up for and then participating in the Focus on Marriage Simulcast, Dr. Dobson's farewell chapel, and MckMama's visit and daylong photoshoot. It's tough to get my writing done in "normal" weeks when nothing extra is planned. But last week was off the charts!
Interestingly, the column is possibly more relevant today even than when I wrote it, given the stats now being released about the way women outnumber men on college campuses.
The question: is it OK to date a man with less education? Well, it depends. She wrote,
I have a bachelor's degree and the guy I am interested in has a high school diploma and is successfully self-employed. I have a friend who says she would never date someone who was "uneducated" (without a degree), but this guy is intelligent, a voracious reader and committed to the Lord. Do you think dating or marrying someone with less education would be a barrier to the relationship?
