Dating courtship engagement marriage
Worse, they naturally are inclined to want to sample the marriage-only goods as well, proving further they don’t want the commitment and responsibility that comes with the dating process toward marriage.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 risks giving in to the temptation to do that one thing reserved ONLY to married couples because you become so used to each other and, what the heck, you love each other and are practically married anyway, so why not?At the practical level, you want to be in courtship for a short time, with the agreement to get engaged or end the relationship at the end of that time period.Single persons who want to get married are in this same situation.They are putting themselves out there to sample in hopes to find a buyer.It is a practice run of making the formal decision to forsake all others on the day you exchange vows.
Courtship wants to focus only on the person you “think” might be the one you want to spend the rest of your life with.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.However, if it the courtship does not work out, you have avoid rushing into a marriage that you may likely have regretted later.Courtship, as a process, ensures that all the right steps have been taken and all the right things have been talked about in order to come to the closest conclusion possible that you are in love and want to spend the rest of your life with this person.
