What Level Is…
What level would getting a girlfriend be?
That depends on what is motivating you. If you want a girlfriend so that you can use her for your own physical pleasure, you are stuck on Level 1. If you want a girlfriend so that you can look cool and have someone who makes you feel good about yourself, you are stuck on Level 2. If you want a girlfriend because you are looking for someone to share love with in a mutually respectful and exclusive relationship, that’s Level 3. And if you want a girlfriend because your love for God is leading you to desire a mutually respectful and lifelong marriage with someone who can help you get to heaven and whom you can help to get to heaven, that’s Level 4.
What level of happiness is getting married?
It’s the same answer as the one above about getting a girlfriend. It depends on your motives for getting married. People have Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 motives for getting married. A Level 4 motive is because you want to glorify God by making a lifelong and exclusive commitment of love to someone, because you are willing to accept His possible work of creation in your marriage (babies), and because you desire to share the journey of getting to heaven with that person.

What level of happiness is humor?
In this course, we’re using the word “happiness” in a different way than the use of the word as in “humor” or “laughter.” We are defining happiness as “meaning and purpose in life.” You can enjoy humor and laughter regardless of the level of happiness you are operating out of.
