I come across books like this, and it leaves me feeling I don't stand a chance of marrying a godly man: All the good ones will be taken by women fortunate enough to be blessed with Christian fathers who are fighting in their corner. With titles like "Don't Send a Woman to Do a Man's Job"; a whole list of non-negotiable, seemingly impossible "musts"; and the assumption that Dad is on the scene and actively helping his daughters find good husbands, I figured the book would get a rise out of all but the narrowest group of readers.Baucham's not even talking them — to a roomful of dads. Though women aren't the target audience, we can listen in and hopefully, while eavesdropping, glean some valuable help for marrying well.But there’s something weird when you elevate the father/daughter relationship above these others and start arguing that fathers and daughters should find in each other what they would otherwise go looking for in sexual and romantic relationships.Voddie Baucham says that middle aged men should turn to their teenage daughters to get the attention and fulfillment they would otherwise look for through an affair with a young secretary.” 3.Voddie Baucham was a featured speaker at a male supremacist homeschool conference that called for dismantling child protection systems.Voddie Baucham is one of the most outspoken proponents of “Christian Patriarchy,” an extreme movement within conservative Christian homeschooling that advocates for male supremacy and men ruling over their wives and children, especially female children.

But knowing something's a good idea, and actually doing it, can be two very different things.
For all my agreement with this book, I almost didn't stick around long enough to appreciate it. Sadly, whether for reasons of divorce, different faiths, geographic distance or mere disinterest, many, many singles who hope to marry well are going it alone. At first glance, I suspect they'll share sentiments similar to R.
Voddie Baucham is a proponent of the “stay-at-home daughter” movement.
The “stay-at-home-daughter” (SAHD) movement, promoted by the disgraced Vision Forum president Doug Phillips as well as the cult-like Botkin family, is best encapsulated in the documentary movie “Young girls and single women are encouraged (perhaps coerced? They are forbidden to attend college or seek employment outside the home (that is, their parents’ home).
