We say we want someone who will respect our “No sex before marriage” rule, but as soon as that good looking man who can’t keep his hands to himself comes along, suddenly celibacy is not all that important.Another thing to understand is that yes, every relationship will have it’s ups and downs. The problems you get comfortable with dealing with in a dating relationship, will be the same problems you will deal with in your marriage.If we find that they are not who they say they are, we have the option of getting out of the relationship instead of going into a marriage thinking marriage will solve our issues.We are not truthful with ourselves when it comes to our expectations.I understand there’s no such thing as a perfect relationship. We should never marry potential, Always marry reality.However, we sometimes get a little too comfortable with the downs outweighing the ups. Take for example, when we buy a used car, some times they are sold “AS IS”. The person we thought we knew turns out to be someone completely different and I don’t mean that in a good way.May we have your vision as we soar above the everyday to glimpse the kingdom of heaven.May we learn the truth of real beauty as we change and age together.
Help us to know each other more, to understand one another deeply and learn how to support and care for each other.
When you go to the airport, you can’t arrive at the airport 15 minutes before the plane takes off right? They do all of this before you get on the plane because they know that once you get on the plane, you can possibly bring them down if they don’t take the time to check you out. You have to make sure you check them out to make sure they’re exactly who they say they are.
You have to check what kind of baggage they’re bringing into your relationship. dating is a precursor for marriage so we should use this time wisely to get to know them.
