Malayalee churches never talk about relationships.
They never talk a bout sex.
Is it that the church expects the parents to teach it? Or is it that the parents expect the church to teach it?
Or is it that they both expect each other to teach it?
And then the parents put the pressure on the son or daughter to get married and they just wind up settling because they are about to “expire”.
But how do you know it’s true love?
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV)
“I am my lover’s and my lover is mine” – Song of Solomon 6:3 (NIV)
