quotingquiverfullby Stacy McDonald from Your Sacred Calling – Courtship Questions for Potential Suitors

Editor’s note: If the parents of someone you are interested in dating/courting ever ask you any of these questions my advice to you is to either RUN or ask them why they want to know. I’ve listed belong the most wtf questions from the very l-o-n-g list of courtship questions Stacy published. Click on the above link to see all the questions. These are all really none of the parents business at all, not even if you are engaged to be married. None of this is any of their business! But it does amply illustrate the complete lack of healthy emotional boundaries in Quiverfull.
