HiI'm a 16 year old Junior at an all-male high school. When the time comes, I'd like to practice Biblical Courtship. I had a general question about girls today. I have very traditional views on gender roles. I strongly believe that if a man makes enough money, the place of a married woman is in the home. I'd want a girl that agrees with me on gender roles, is Godly, kind, caring, and sweet. I also believe that girls should dress very modestly( only very long dresses) I will NOT compromise on these things. Please don't answer if that's what you want to suggest. Where could I find a girl like this today? Do Christian girls like this still exist today( or have they all become Feminists)
I find it hard that this post is from a sixteen year old child. Are you not sure that you are here just testing Christians convictions? I have yet to see many sixteen year old boys who wear long pants only
, and not short. Why would anyone expect young ladies to do something they themselves do not do? Does your mother wear "long dresses"? If not, then why would you expect a young lady to do the same? The teaching of the NT is modesty~there's not a certain dress codes that all must follow, but all should and must be modest. I have news for you, if this is a true post from a young man....you will change some, or, your wife will not lovingly submit. Men who refuse to give their wives freedom in dressing, spending money, making some decisions cannot expect a wife to give him honour as her head. A godly woman may very well do it, but in her heart she would hate him for his overbearing and unmerciful headship. Marriage is a fifty year commitment, and no father would allow his daughter to married a ruthless, unmerciful man that will got give his wife some liberty without him dictating her every move.

We cannot demand these things from our wives, we do these things to them, and they likewise will do the same to us~it's a two way street. We nurture
them out of them, not demand, or just expect them because we are men and they are women!
