2 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN DATING TOWARD MARRIAGE
1. SHARE A VISION AND A DREAM
While dating, you must both understand the non-negotiables in your relationship and agree on them. The list is actually quite short in my opinion: faith. In your marriage, no one thing will impact your relationship more than your belief in who Christ is, what He’s done, and who you are as a result. If you disagree on faith, you will disagree on most important things.
2. TAKE PERSONAL INVENTORY
When you’re dating and considering marriage, a good introspective look will only help prepare you. Will you ever be perfect? No. But that’s not the goal. The goal is count the cost of marriage and make sure you understand the weight of covenant. Marriage is wonderful, but it’s not all sunshine and rainbows! Like all relationships, it may be messy. Do you understand what lifetime commitment really means? And do you understand the true definition of love?
Of course, there’s abundant grace when you’re in Christ. You will never be fully ready for marriage – no amount of how-to’s or tips will prepare you – but you can count the cost.
In short, DATE to MARRY and STOP WASTING TIME!
