"In today's world, we spend so much energy being right and proving others wrong," he says in the talk's description."Twenty years ago I wrote a best-selling book about dating that I'm now realizing misguided and even hurt some people.“When God knows you’re ready for the responsibility of commitment, He’ll reveal the right person under the right circumstances.” “I was advocating for friendship.I was saying, you know, you can get to know this person, you can enjoy a deep friendship.
“In trying to warn people of the potential pitfalls of dating, instead it often instilled fear — fear of making mistakes or having their heart broken.” Now, Harris has announced that he and his wife are separating, citing unspecified “significant changes” that have happened inside of them both.In his book, Harris also urges Christian singles to commit to "purposeful singleness," as romantic relationships should exist only as a means to preparing for marriage."I was young, I was religiously zealous, I was certain, and I was restlessly ambitious," Harris recalled.“In recent years, some significant changes have taken place in both of us.” “It is with sincere love for one another and understanding of our unique story as a couple that we are moving forward with this decision,” he said.“We hope to create a generous and supportive future for each other and for our three amazing children in the years ahead.
I'm hoping that my experience of listening to my critics and reevaluating my conclusions will inspire others to see that progress and growth always involves the humbling process of admitting mistakes." Harris wrote "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" when he was 20 years old, had been homeschooled his entire life, and had not yet been in a dating relationship.
