L-117. So, You Want to Get Married?   New


Relationships are complicated. In a world of dating apps, casual hookups and emotional baggage what does the Bible say about how to approach romantic relationships before or leading up to marriage?

In this session we will explore what God tells us about navigating the road to marriage: dating. We’ll cover 4 benchmarks about how men and women need to treat each other and what expectations they should have for a future or current significant other.

These benchmarks are:

·         Thoughtfulness

·         Nobility

·         Clarity

·         Purity

The Bible gives us very good guidelines for how to conduct ourselves when in pursuit of marriage. After completing this session, attendants will be able to identify the traits and actions they need to prioritize in a potential spouse. These traits and actions are modeled after how God pursues His bride: the Church.
