Christian code of conduct for dating
A simple wedding will also allow you to have a short engagement, which in most cases is a great thing for a number of reasons.Speaking of long engagements, let's talk logistics.Finally, is there an affection for this person in my heart and mind based on the way God has defined biblical manhood and womanhood?
If the logistics are so bad (or so important to you) that you feel you just can't get married in the near future, then take a hard look at whether you should be in a relationship.
Will you be able to accomplish ministry (be it your original plan or one that you have caught a vision for through this person) more effectively together than apart? Look at the roles laid out there for men and women.
Do you desire to fill your role with the person in question specifically in mind?
Adjust things like school, jobs, money, distance (in other words, logistics) to accommodate getting married.
Don't adjust the purpose and timing of marriage for a significant amount of time to accommodate the caprice of logistics or other earthly circumstances.
After the proposal is seamlessly executed and delivered by the man with no snags whatsoever, the woman says yes with no hesitation, accompanied by smiles and tears all around. It should guide you in every decision, thought and act until you stand before God, the people and the pastor on the big day. Remember that if you get nothing else out of this column.
