My coworker commented on that, too!  

I explained the meaning of the wedding square and she's determined to work that into conversation before our shift is up.  

I don't understand the meaning of the "wedding square".  What does it mean?

I think I missed something he said.  There was a comment in another thread about his "casual racism".  Did he say something specific?  I have no doubt he may think it but I try not to pay attention to him so I wonder if I missed something.

Carlin posted a story where one of the brothers (most likely Nathan) made a tasteless "joke" about George Floyd. It is not 💯 clear which brother it is, but it sounded like Nathan to me and he had a smug look on his face when the camera panned to him so I am willing to say it was him.

But who calls it a wedding square? Is this a Gothard thing?

 

No, it is not Gothard. It was a poster in a Nester thread a while back, whose grandmother had referred to that body part as the ‘wedding square’. This was in response to a discussion after the pic where Nathan was hugging Esther from behind with his hands dangerously close to Esther’s, well, wedding square. I believe the pic was from before they were even engaged, and people thought it was a bit on the immodest/Nike side for a fundie. 
 

I will try to hunt down the original wedding square post.

The fact that fundies make such a huge deal about not kissing before marriage along with a bunch of other rules bugs me to no end for multiple reasons. But one of the biggest is that anyone in the family who doesn’t is assumed to be “not as good.” If the gold standard in fundie land is waiting to have your first kiss at the wedding, then not waiting means you’re less than. When it comes to sex before marriage, most people won’t know either way because there are no witnesses to that. You can usually hide it (unless there’s a whoops pregnancy).  But there can be witnesses to kissing before marriage. People may know. Especially if you aren’t constantly talking about saving your first kiss. The ones that do wait, can’t stop talking about it! So everyone knows. Honestly I see kissing before marriage to be very healthy and waiting to be unhealthy. So it’s always crazy to me that they are bragging about something I think is a horrible choice. It’s like a 13 year old bragging that he tried smoking a cigarette. It’s nothing to brag about in my opinion.

It was me, a few threads back. I was quoting a poster from Reddit who originally used the term.
