Episode  Summary:

Wintery Knight and Desert Rose discuss how to find a partner to marry. We talk about God’s design for marriage, and contrast that with society’s view of marriage. We talk about how to measure a person’s suitability for marriage. We contrast our strategies with a half-dozen rival strategies, using peer-reviewed research. We talk about compatibility and common areas of tension. And we recommend our favorite book about marriage.

Speaker biographies

Wintery Knight is a black legal immigrant. He is a senior software engineer by day, and an amateur Christian apologist by night. He has been blogging at since January of 2009, covering news, policy and Christian worldview issues.

Important note:

In the podcast, we kept saying that “Gary Chapman” wrote “The Sacred Search”. It’s actually Gary Thomas. Gary Chapman wrote “The Five Love Languages”, which is another of our favorite books. We apologize for the confusion.


My 2 Cents:

We mentioned my friend My 2 Cents in our podcast, who is another Christian man who is amazing on the topic of dating and marriage. I highly recommend his YouTube channel. He definitely has a very developed, thoughtful view on marriage that respects chastity but is brutally realistic about what men are facing.

He did a series defending traditional marriage from a red-pilled male perspective:

  1. What is Marriage and Why is it Important?
  2. Why Traditional Gender Roles Matter in Marriage
  3. Marriage and the State
  4. Private Marriage, Promises, and Guarantees
  5. The Truth about Domestic Abuse
