There are some things a man simply must be before he is qualified to assume the role of a husband and father. Now this is not an exhaustive list by far, but there are four characteristics that a young man must possess in order to be suitable for a young woman.

A man who does not possess - or at least show signs of developing - these characteristics does not meet the basic job description laid down for husbands in the Bible.

If we continue to follow the same pattern as the world we will suffer the same consequences.
