Advice on dating courting for marriage
In contrast, courtship is undertaken only when both parties are prepared to make a commitment to marriage.
Dating tries to answer the question, How can I find the one who will make me happy?
You see, for so many years, I was taught that “Dating” was the enemy. That it was for people who weren’t “waiting on God” but rather taking life into their own hands. I was a young woman who wanted to please God with all of my heart. What I have come to understand is that God works differently with different people and that He has used my stance to further His purpose for my life.
The pros of extremely involved family and friends in courtship, are the potential cons of a lack of boundaries within marriage.
