Stage 2, second sentence has a grammar error or something. Hope that's helpful.

I have really appreciated your ministry in the last couple years. My son (17) and I have made it up to your conference twice and we enjoy listening and discussing the various podcasts. Just talked through this article with my son and eldest daughter.

Step one is sadly something it seems many young people have lost. Now it seems if there is any interest, kids go straight into stage two with an mutual ownership type feel.

Only difference I would have on your take is I would move what you have under the engaged description to the end of section 2. To me, "engaged" is a ideally a short period of time (4-6m) necessary to plan wedding and receive premarital counceling. The earlier in a courtship that respected influencers can weigh in with any concerns the better.

Keep up the great work!
