(For example, someone may wake up without those strong feeling of romance and be deceived into thinking they are no longer "in love" with their mate.
This gives an excuse to begin another search for their true "soul mate" to experience romance again!
Mentor couples should be secured both during the courtship stage and after the marriage takes place.
Even worse, the double-mindedness that results from numerous sexual encounters with various people carries into future relationships and even marriage.
This is because of unhealthy soul ties that have been developed, increasing the chances one's marriage will end in adultery and divorce, which drags down children and creates generational curses due to family fragmentation.
This will enable the development of a deep friendship to help discern the will of God before beginning the process of committing to each other more formally.
Both parties should back off, receive counsel, and pray to hear from God with other mature leaders and/or parents before allowing their hearts to be pulled towards each other romantically.
If you don't have the money, be simple and modest with excellence on your wedding day. Yet dating has caused the most havoc, destroyed countless lives, resulted in unwanted pregnancies and abortions, and even split churches apart.
During the courtship Bible studies should be done together on the role of husbands and wives, and the purpose of children (Genesis ).The book of Proverbs should be studied frequently together for practical wisdom and prudence in relationships and business.Couples should especially study biblical love as found in 1 Corinthians 13 and understand that it is the commitment that arises out of covenant that will sustain their marriage–not merely the feeling of love.) All couples must understand the difference between romantic feelings/the world's definition of love and the biblical definition of love which is based on action, commitment, and sacrifice.During courtship, much prayer should be offered for wisdom, favor, and understanding.For example, it is a huge mistake to marry a person because they are strong spiritually when not attracted to them physically.
