You Know You’re in a Homeschool Romance if…
(The funny and not so funny stereotypes.)
- Your parent’s favorite book is “I Kissed Dating Goodbye”
- The 11th commandment is “thou shall ask the father for permission”.
- Being caught making eye contact is a public declaration of romantic interest.
- Whether you’re 15 or 35, your parents must be VERY INVOLVED.
- There’s a lot of confusion about what to call your relationship. Are you dating? Are you courting? Are you “special friends”?
- You have to take your younger siblings on every date (It’s fairly easy to follow this rule, because all of your dates are at your parent’s house or at church).
- The only chick flicks you are allowed to watch are episodes of “The Little House on the Prairie”.
- If you want to actually go see a movie together, there is an extensive application process.
- You periodically delete all the texts saved in your phone in case of a random cell phone check.
- Everyone thinks you’re engaged, because of your purity ring.
- First base is sitting next to each other. Second base is holding hands. Third base is hugging. A home run is your first kiss (on your wedding day). No one really knows what happens after that…
- You’ve never seen each other in a swimsuit, but you’re fairly certain that your significant other’s suit is made of denim.
- You love prayer time at church, because it’s the only time you can hold hands in front of your parents. So there!
- You are constantly asked if you are going to have as many kids as your parents did.
- Although your parents have given you extensive premarital counseling, you still haven’t had “the talk”.
- The Bachelor and Bachelorette parties are very dignified. You play Risk or have a tea party.
- The most scandalous wedding gift you receive is a floor length night gown that your Aunt made (Your poor mother is redder than a tomato).
- Your wedding dress is the first non-denim dress you have ever worn.
- There is absolutely no dancing at your wedding. However, swaying during “Amazing Grace” is acceptable.
- The most awkward question you have ever been asked is “How was the Honeymoon?”
- Your first child is born 9 months after the wedding.
