And others choose, what I like to call, the “dateship” path – a combination of both dating and courtship.Royal Persian courtships involved officials and royal decrees, while provincial Sicilian families required deposits of livestock.
Not everyone defines modern dating the same way, but from what I’ve seen, the majority of American’s view it like this: A casual romantic relationship between two people for the purpose of having fun and enjoying one another.

In fact, it advocates ‘playing the field’ in order to determine ‘what one wants’ in a mate.” If I asked you what your favorite drink was and you said soda, what would my next question be? A lot of people would agree that courtship could be described like this: A relationship between a guy and a girl for the purpose of seeking God’s will on whether or not they should marry each other.
