Again tonight and the next two nights, we will look at marriage from the perspective of my students. This goes back to Sunday's entry called The Princess Bride and MookDa's List. All my students were asked to list six He Must or She Must statements about their future mate and then six He Must Nots and She Must Nots. These statements from some of the gentlemen in my classes are used by permission:
