Rules for dating my dad Adult teen shockwave chat

I spotted a photo in my newsfeed yesterday of the T-shirt a feminist father made to explain his expectations to anyone interested in dating his daughter.

When two-year-old Addie Luttrell grows up and starts dating, the unfortunate boy who picks her up for her first date is in for the shock of his life.

Addie's father, Marcus Luttrell - a former Navy SEAL and author of the best-selling book “Lone Survivor,” which was adapted into a hit movie starring Mark Wahlberg - wrote an epic Facebook post on Wednesday, outlining just what he will do when his little girl grows up and begins to date.

And while I know we all thought we knew everything when we were 15, we in fact knew nothing at all whatsoever oh my goodness wasn’t it embarrassing we were so foolish I’m so glad we survived how did we survive.

So the idea that parents wouldn’t have dating rules during the parenting process is mostly just an abdication of parenting as opposed to some kind of feminist empowerment thing.

However, I disagree with his conclusions, so I decided to create a little T-shirt of my own — a Christian Dad’s response to Feminist Father, if you will: GOD makes the rules. I know that none of the men who date (or eventually marry) my daughters will be perfect. But I do expect them to have hearts on fire for Jesus. I want them to love my daughters with an enduring, committed, self-sacrificing love. What sort of rules or guidelines have you set for your sons and daughters when it comes to dating? Want a “Dating Rules” T-Shirt for yourself or someone you love? (Please note that the graphic is on the front of the shirt, not the back).

A Christian Father’s Rules for Dating My Daughter first appeared on All Truth is God’s Truth.Just remember these eight rules for dating single dads.Rule #1: Be Realistic You might be used to someone who only has you to spend his time and money on, but with a single dad, the situation will be very different. Try not to be too upset if he can't afford to take you on extravagant dates or he has to cancel because his daughter got sick.As if being a 6'5'', 250-pound former Navy SEAL wasn't enough, Luttrell is adding extra intimidation in the form of impossibly lofty expectations for any young man who wants a date with his beloved Addie.Luttrell appeared on "Fox and Friends Weekend" this morning and explained that, of course, his post is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, and he just wants his daughter to be safe, happy and loved.Rule #3: Don’t Overstep Because his kids are important to him, they should be important to you, too. If he's divorced and not widowed, chances are his kids still have a mother who is very involved in their life.
