Dating courting done right

Rated 3.93/5 based on 582 customer reviews

As Antoine de Saint-Exupery said, "Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction." So to have a successful marriage, the most important thing is to ensure that you follow His principles that He laid down when He designed marriage.

The irony is, when we focus on His principles instead of our pleasure, we end up having a very satifying and pleasant marriage!

Instead of enjoying their teen years as they build skills and character, they are getting distracted into the quagmire of relationships that they are not equipped to conduct.

The teen years are those where they have the fewest responsibilities at the same time as having their greatest energy level. They should be an opportunity to develop a deep, intimate and personal walk with God, establishing themselves as young warriors who know the Father and have overcome the evil one (1 John ).

The dichotomy is this: in dating, we presume to partake of many of these privileges of marriage.

We would be shocked if a married man had an emotional attachment to another woman, and yet it's quite acceptable for singles to have a different emotional attachment every week.

The primary purpose of marriage is not to please you, but to serve God.

On the one hand, we save sex for our partners (and some even do that sparingly), but on the other, we engage in rampant emotional promiscuity, giving pieces of our hearts away until one wonders what will be left for that special, life-long partner.

I have adopted the view that the Bible holds the truth for life today.

In the Bible, the parents were always involved in the marriage process.

They did not arrange the marriage without the childrens' consent, although they were certainly involved in the arrangements.
