If, during the courtship, one or both parties realize that marriage is not God’s will and they end the relationship, the courtship has not failed.
On the contrary, the courtship was successful, because God gave the direction that was sought through it.
(See II Corinthians 5:7, Psalm , Romans , Psalm 13, and I John 4:8.) Because each individual, family, and set of circumstances is unique, each courtship will be unique.
While those who choose courtship will hold to general guidelines for the relationship, their specific choices about when, where, and how to court may differ according to their needs and circumstances.
If it is a man and they have read the Word they usually quote 1st Corinthians emphasizing the "seek not a wife" part with a pained look on there face.
So courtship, just as a term, has meaning and value to a Christian.What is the difference between courtship and dating?Is the only difference that dating is casual and courtship is exclusive with movement towards engagement? What do the scriptures say and what is the will of God for me and if it is the will of God it will line up with the scriptures? You are not a real man unless you attract women and have one hanging on your arm. First of all let's start where every Christian is supposed to start in everything they do.He will slander her and you if you give him the chance.A Godly husband protects his wife; a Godly man protects his sister. A sampling of opinions reveals a variety of definitions, with seemingly no two alike.In the simplest form, a date is merely a set time agreed upon by two people to engage in an activity.But for you men the Word is clear that you treat women with respect and as sisters. You don't decide you like her and drive off to Lookout Point even if she wants to. You don't want the girl that is willing to break her vow before God and you are doing the same.In fact, if you really love and respect her, you would never put her in a place where there could be even a hint of sexual immorality. He does not care that nothing has happened between you and her.
