  • traditional courtships? If that's what the two people involved want to do that's completely up to them. It's their decision.

  • Nope.

    It's archaic and insulting to women.

  • Traditional courtship is romantic and sweet.
    I believe that we must be cautious and get to know someone...no casual,uncommitted sex. Wait fo real love......be traditional and romantic. It shows respect and is NOT insulting to women,or men. It involes responsibility also

  • Not really. IF someone agrees with it then it's ok for that person. If not it's not ok for it to be pushed on them.

  • Traditional in that the man expresses an interest in the lady, and she can accept him or turn him down. I'd say this is more humiliating for the man than for the lady. A long period of "going out" which doesn't mean hopping into bed, it means spending time together exploring mutual interests and then learning about the other person. All this time, the lady can say sorry, it isn't working. As can the man. Learning about one another's families, meeting them to get an idea of what kind of background the other person has. Discussing important issues. Then getting engaged. During the engagement period, testing that loyalty and commitment by examining feelings for other potential mates or exes. And if it always comes back to the one person being the one, then getting married.

  • And it doesn't have to be the man expressing the interest. It is fine for the lady to make the first overtures.
