The group chat blew up the other morning: Josh Harris is getting divorced.
The chat is made up of three of my oldest friends — we all grew up deep in Christian purity culture. We got married around the same ages — earlier than most — and two of us are divorced now. We’ve stayed close because we have all had to work on unlearning deep-seated shame about our bodies and sexuality because of purity culture teachings. Our experience of these teachings all started with Harris’s 1997 bestselling book I Kissed Dating Goodbye.
