Some end up in hospital beds, or psychiatric homes, some commit abortions while others commit suicide.
Others live for life with a wounded conscience. Would you want that to happen to you? Of course not.
Dating itself is not wrong. But it is wrong to date for the wrong reason. The following questions will help you to have a successful courtship.
Why am I dating?
Do you have any health problem?
Did you live a promiscuous sex life?
Can we do a medical check up?
Are you owing money?
What are your life or religious goals? And many more. . .
Spend time with your mate in recreation and working together. Do daily chores like shopping, cooking, cleaning, and washing -- practical things that will help you later in the marriage, and see how your mate fares.
Watch to see how your mate treats his parents and friends.
Observe him when in the company of other people.
Watch him unobserved.
Do not be hasty in your courtship. If there are flaws in the person you are dating or flaws in the relationship that you think you cannot live with, break it up.
But now, how do you know that you are ready for marriage?
