Relationship Advice

The Nature of Love

There is something they never tell you

About the nature of love

Perhaps it is divine

Or sent from above

Most embrace the mystery

Laughing joyfully as they go

But some resist temptation

And fight to keep control

Not all understand this

But those who do will know

The more you deny the feeling

The stronger it will grow

love

Appropriate use of the Bible in forming theological opinions

Men and Purity Culture

The Scarlet Virgins“Men can’t be sexually assaulted,” “men are emotionless,” “men are inherently bad because they are sexual,” etc. These are all things Rebecca learned about men through purity culture.

In this episode, she addresses these assumptions and calls out purity culture’s failed promises by pointing out how the side effects of the movement are not unlike the ramifications of a pornography addiction.

The Truth About Failed Courtship

The Scarlet Virgins

“When you break off a dating relationship, it hurts. But what happens when you get dumped (by a Dad or otherwise) in courtship? The stakes are the equivalent of a broken engagement, and some would even say a marriage.

The pain is excruciating, but if you’ve had a failed courtship, you aren’t alone! In this episode, Rebecca talks about her own experience with a failed courtship (and her husband’s) and what you can do to heal afterwards.”

Hangups In Marriage After Purity Culture

The Scarlet Virgins
Many purity culture “graduates” experience hangups when they get married when it comes to their sexual lives and relationship with their spouse. The fear and shame learned from purity culture often leads them to stay silent about their private thought lives and other intimate details that should be freely shared with their spouse.

In this episode, Rebecca addresses a few of these hangups and encourages spouses to love one another fully by working together to overcome these hangups.
