Why courtship is better than dating invalidating query cache entries key magento
However, among Christians, you still hear “courtship” and “dating” used interchangeably; indicating that many single people find the terms to mean the same thing.
Why would anyone use the term “courtship” when they are simply “dating”? Some Christians find the word “dating” to be a negative term due to their secular counterparts using the term excessively.
I usually advise couples in courtship to make sure they have taken a good, long road trip together so they can experience all the sides of each other, which a long road trip seems to bring out.
If you can endure each other’s faults, quirks, and negatives sides, and still say “I love you! I assume at this point my focus on courtship has provided some insight into what dating is. The best way to describe dating is that it is a sampling process. You spend non-commitment time with the person in order to see if there is an all around attraction to that person enough to move on to “serious dating.” Serious dating is no longer a sampling process.
I think these persons should be made to where a tag that says “Samples Only” so the single people serious about finding the right person and ready to make a commitment can avoid wasting time with the sample-only people.
It is a practice run of making the formal decision to forsake all others on the day you exchange vows.
In courtship, you do forsake all others, but not as a vow, but rather as a trial run.
I don't want to date more than one guy at a time, but I might not want to marry that one guy, either. These terms are often used interchangeably, depending on which one the person feels most comfortable using. You never hear a non-Christian use this term at any time.
So courtship, just as a term, has meaning and value to a Christian.
