Friendship dating courtship and marriage
Courtship is much better than dating (read mating) and returning to this age old practice of finding a suitable partner for oneself is the answer to all ills the younger generation is facing today.
The concept of dating is about as old as the automobile.
Nowadays we are so used to it that we might not be able to imagine any other approach to relationships.
But back before the car, the reason why a man would invest time with a woman was to see if she was a potential marriage partner.
Thus, dating by many is seen as a little more than friendship, and friendship aspect remains intact in dating, until both partners feel they are ready for a more meaningful relationship.
Courtship is similar to dating; in the sense, that it allows man and woman to come together to know each other, though strictly under the watchful eyes of parents or other family members.
Many people would begin a relationship simply because they found the other to be cute and fun.
This put a new spin on the focus of relationships, and short-term relationships became commonplace.
Either way, I suggest a return to the principles of courtship.On an average, a person, before he or she is married, has experienced sexual relationships and the emotional trauma of braking up so many times that he feels as if he has already been divorced several times.Summary The answer to this dilemma lies in exercising self control and approaching relationships with a different intent and purpose.Majority of the relationships become intense and sexual.Breakup ensues as there is no commitment in the relationship, and this goes on for a few more times.
Whether we admit it or not, the world has molded our views of preparing for marriage.
