men who don't go to church are wife-beaters......uh....or something like that....

So, it seems like there's something in the water....everyone is getting engaged or wishing they were getting engaged or wishing there was even a possiblity they could be engaged, or trying to figure out how they can find someone to get engaged to in the quickest amount of time (before graduation, right?).

There was an interesting comment in Christianity Today that might be important to consider for those who are thinking of rushing into a relationship....Sociologist Brad Wilcox noted that the highest rate of domestic violence in America today is among nominal Christians - those men who wear the name of Christian but rarely darken a church door. They also have a very high divorce rate.

Just something to consider when narrowing the field....if he's not interested in pursuing spiritual things now, don't count on it changing.

Yep and if you are a practicing Christian, it's always best to marry another one, otherwise that unequal yoking thing will cause lots of conflicts later

I'm sure you're already aware of this, but it's important to note that while the male partner being the perpetrator of domestic abuse is overwhelmingly more common, it's not always the case. It's almost impossible to know how many battered males there are, though, because there's almost no research into the subject.
