Christian dating and engagement

Women have biological clocks and medically, the older you are, the less fertile you become.

If this is something that concerns you particularly, waiting a few years before getting married can be challenging.

One thing worth remembering, however, is that every relationship is different and there is no ‘one size fits all’.

Let’s look at the first; ‘Date to marry’ Some people see this as the traditional way of doing things; you meet someone, go on a few dates, decide you like them enough to enter into a long term relationship, or courtship, as some prefer to call it.

On this issue, I try to remind people that God is the ultimate giver of children, and if His plan for you includes having kids, then, it will happen.

This may sound crazy to some people, but is not at all crazy to them. I personally believe it is crucial that you get to know someone as much as possible before getting married to them.You get to know their likes and dislikes, and if they have any annoying habits.The longer the courtship period, the more you get to know about the person.Even when two people are right for each other, you can never underestimate the importance of taking the time to get to know each other.During the courtship phase, you get the chance to ask each other questions and discuss your dreams, and plans for the future, amongst other things.

Having a long courtship period basically means that you have to wait longer, and not everyone is blessed with the patience to wait.

Oct 4, 2013. Not long ago Eric and I sat down with a soon-to-be-married couple that had gone from a vibrant, Christ-centered, God-scripted romance to an impure, mediocre, run-of-the-mill “Christian” relationship in a matter of weeks. Selfish desires had taken over, Jesus Christ had been pushed to the back burner, and.
