(Matthew 19:9, KJV)Notice two words Jesus used: fornication and adultery.
Ladies, did you know that there is a big difference between dating and courting. I believe that alot of our heartache and pain stems from not knowing the difference between the two. If you have s*x in either the dating or courting stages you may risk the opportunity to actually become a bride. Most of us use the words interchangeably and we really need to stop doing that.Your goal is to learn as much as possible about each other without any outside influences. Courtship leads to marriage, and it happens when a daughter's parents are still involved in the decision-making process.The main cause of divorce is not what is happening during marriage but what happened before marriage.
How you live as a single person, will eventually show up in your marriage.Trying on different people does not make it less likely that you will want to keep the one you picked.Actually, chances are you will more likely become dissatisfied with the person you married, because you know what others are like, and you might start to reminisce about the other guys you slept with.Let me say first of all: Dont get hung up on terms.It is possible to use the word date but not necessarily have the same understanding as my definition. If you say you date but dont do what I define dating as being, then I feel you are practicing courting, although you might still use the term dating. It sounds so much better, but in reality, dating and mating are sometimes the same.Dating happens between adults who make their own decisions.
