To Fellow Men:
I know a guy who often says, "I don't have time for this $#*&." That's how I feel about this Fifty Shades stuff. I haven't read the book and won't see the movie. I don't have time for it, but I've got five minutes to rant by listing some of my favorite lines about men, sex, and marriage.
Treat women like sisters and your wife like a queen. You don't glance, peek, or think thoughts about your sister. And you adore only your queen.
If you're not married, start living like you will be. If you aren't prepared to meet a wife, you never will. Phase out the juvenile habits (excessive video gaming, endless hours of Sports Center). Learn to wash your own clothes. Practice good grooming and hygiene. Work on being responsible, accountable, selfless, and wise. Find a godly mentor to help you do this.
If you're married, always date. Your wife, that is. Never give up pursuing her. Treasure her. Hold her hand. Open the door. Surprise her. Show affection.
If you're more aroused by fantasy than reality, then go for sober. No porn. No lingerie ads. No thoughts. Starve the fantasies. Don't give them any fuel. They will mess you up and you'll never be able to have a genuine relationship with a real, live woman.
Monogamy is a courageous adventure. Fight for one woman for a lifetime. Lesser men will chase after many women. Greater men will love a woman day after day and discover joy and fulfillment. I currently have members who are soon to be married 75 years. Beat that.
