Art art because date datings first marriable not scienceits series

A dating couple may feel married at times, but a dating couple is never a married couple.

Your answer probably hangs on why you think you (or anyone else) should date in the first place.

Anyone can see that the costs are often high — crushing breakups, sexual sin, shocking betrayal, sudden rejection, devastating heartbreak — the pain of love that never walked the aisle.

So why do so many of us still dive so quickly into dating?

Well, in part, because Satan masks the risks so well (Revelation 12:9).

For many of us, we just want to be happy, to belong, to be valued.

We imagine our deepest needs being met in the intimacy of being with a special young man or woman.

You may be dreaming about marriage already (I was), but is it realistic that the two of you could marry anytime soon? My advice — take it or leave it — is wait until you can reasonably marry him or her in the next eighteen months. The important part is that you , if God made it clear this was his will and his timing for you.

You won’t find eighteen months anywhere in the Bible, and so you should not treat it as God’s law.

Some, no doubt, will hate this advice — I’m sure I would have — but we all need to acknowledge that we can date long before we can marry — and that doesn’t mean we should.

We cannot date toward marriage when marriage isn’t even on the radar yet.

He wants to use you and your gifts to change other people’s lives.
