Are Christian college students who attend college on the Christian college campus more likely to get married immediately after or soon after graduating than those attending state colleges? Do Christian college students on the Christian college campus feel pressured to rush into marriage faster than their secular, state school peers? Is there some reason they feel they must find their mate before leaving the Christian college environment or face difficulties afterwards?
Some call this the “Ring by Spring” phenomenon or “getting your MRS. degree.” It is the norm on many Christian college campuses and I want to discover why.
So over the next several days, several of my Christian college students who attend a small, rural Christian college here in the middle of the Bible Belt are going to weigh in on the “Ring by Spring” phenomenon. Their thoughts and ideas will be unedited and raw.
I want to learn from them. I want you to learn from them. I think you are going to find their analysis on this phenomenon fascinating. Stay tuned.
