"If you’re hesitant in moving forward with your relationship because it might take away from your degree, then you might need to take a step back and think about several other things going on in your relationship.⁠

When you make the decision to get married while in school, you have to make it as a team. You need to have the mentality that says, ‘I’ll be there for you.’ or ‘I’ll go back to school with you.’⁠" - Curtis and Korena Hendryx

"In the premarital stage, what are some good boundaries to have sexually?" When we get this question, we like to use a model called "The Dating Ladder" to answer it. We got the idea from our friends over at Moral Revolution (they dubbed it "The Intimacy Ladder" and we expound upon it in today's episode on the #DYMCpodcast).⁠
