COT / BOM: YHC recently attended a seminar on marriage. Gary Thomas was the speaker, and he was sharing material taken from his book Cherish. One idea he shared was that of a man showcasing his bride like a male dancer showcases a ballerina. Now, YHC knows nothing about ballet but can appreciate the idea that a man stays in the background and supports his lady.
