Biblical courting dating
God does not give us the right to give up on the very first human relationship he ever established which was marriage.Marriage is absolutely “worth bothering with” because God has commanded it. He has commanded it as part of his larger reason for making man and woman in the Garden of Eden.Unless otherwise indicated, all content is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

I’m surrounded by mediocre marriages; I don’t see anyone or at best very few who have a marriage that I would want to have.Many women in our post-feminist culture do not seek out men in marriage for their provision and their protection.Rather they seek out men simply for “friendship” and to have someone to “that makes me laugh”.It is about obeying God’s first command to mankind: “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (1 Corinthians ).In other words, if your reason for not marrying is to serve God in an undivided fashion than your reason for celibacy is honorable and holy before God.
