  32. 32. I AM A RESPONSIBLE BOY The parents of my girlfriend place their trust in me. I will not violate it. I will respect my girlfriend as I expect other men to respect my sister. I will respect womanhood because my mother is a woman: I will ask my girlfriend to do nothing that I would be ashamed of if my mother found out. My girlfriend has given me the honor and pleasure of her company. It is wrong for me to expect more in payment for this date.
  33. 33. My girlfriend will be a wife and a mother someday. She must be an example to her children and the pride of her husband. I will help her to be as pure and decent as I want my own wife to be. Manhood means strength of character as well as body. Lack of self-control is a sign of weakness. I want my girlfriend to know that I am manly. God is everywhere, sees everything, and knows everything. Darkness may hide me from people, but it cannot hide me from God.
  34. 34. I Am a Responsible Girl My kisses are worth more than a party or a movie. My body is the temple of God...not a plaything. The first "NO" may be difficult...after that it's easy. Virginity is still a virtue; lust is still a capital sin. The way I dress, act and speak may be a temptation to my boyfriend. I will observe modesty for his and my own protection.
  35. 35. My parents have done so much for me I wish always to be a credit to them. My boyfriend will be a husband and a father some day. He must be a hero in the eyes of his wife and children. I will do nothing to prevent that on my dates with him. I want to be a wife and mother. I will reserve my purity and affection for my husband and children. If through my weakness, I should get pregnant, I will not take "the easy way out" by killing my unborn child.
