    These vids were funny. I've had similar sounding conversations before.

    I think these videos portray some feelings that some people feel, but they are extreme. I think the older people sometimes their values change. If I were still single, I think I would have the same expectations that I had when I was looking to court my wife. I've had marriage on the mind since I was about 15 though and I didn't date until well into college. For me my list was simple. I wanted a visually pleasing spouse (just a beautiful face – and my wife is very beautiful), a saved spouse (my wife is very saved), an educated spouse (my wife is very educated), and someone who's goal of courting was to lead to marriage (we've been married 8 years). Even the two young ladies that I dated before my wife shared all of these same characteristics. I didn't casually date, I was looking for my wife the entire time and I thank God I found her.

    I think that both of the videos bring up a lot of good points. I just wish we (black folks) could talk about these issues without pointing the finger at each other. I mean, there will never be any progress between the sexes if we keep being so cynical and jaded.
