. No more dangling participles or double negatives please. That is the word that comes from the latest survey of what both single men and women want in a potential mate.

I suppose I am out of the mix when it comes to contemporary thought. I’m just an old fogy because as far as I am concerned, I’m still more interested in character and companionship and Christian faith when it comes to making a lifelong decision as to who to travel through life with. Of course, I still hold to that old-fashioned idea that marriage is for life, too. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
