Views on courtship and dating
That kind of attitude and motivation will ultimately lead to a relationship ending in disaster.
Even very well-meaning, God-loving Christian couples can fall into the trap of selfishness when it comes to relationships.
Dating and courting are basically the same thing—just different terms.
"Courtship" is generally viewed as pursuing a relationship with the full intention to marry the other person.
God's view of romance is different from the world's view.Is the person committed to becoming more like Jesus (Philippians 2:5) or do they lead a selfish life?Does the person show love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, which are the fruits of the spirit (Galatians -23)?The world says that sleeping around is necessary to see if you're physically compatible.The world says that living together before you're married is completely normal because, well, how else would you find out if your boyfriend's/girlfriend's habits are too annoying to live with?
