Leon Kass, respected author, professor and bio-ethicist, puts words to our worst fears in this second excerpt from a three-part series. Reading romantic subtext into completely normal communication?

Plagued by the woes of a college girl who felt like the only single person left on her Christian campus, I begged my small group leader for dating advice.
She was introduced to her husband in college and became a “Mrs.” before graduation.
Less serious relationships can encourage growth and provide a better understanding of the true commitment of marriage. (Okay, if I’m being honest, a part of me hopes that.) But courtship is like going into a first date saying, “This is my future husband.
While those who choose courtship will hold to general guidelines for the relationship, their specific choices about when, where, and how to court may differ according to their needs and circumstances.
These people will have dates on a regular basis, and they may or may not be having sexual relations.
This period of courtship is sometimes seen as a precursor to engagement or marriage.
A courtship may be an informal and private matter between two people or may be a public affair, or a formal arrangement with family approval.
Traditionally, in the case of a formal engagement, it has been perceived that it is the role of a male to actively "court" or "woo" a female, thus encouraging her to understand him and her receptiveness to a proposal of marriage.
