In this chapter we’re going to look at the godly way to find a husband or wife.
Many assume that when people are dating, sexual intercourse is an appropriate demonstration of affection and a way to determine whether they are compatible.
They believe that sex is simply a natural expression of love between two people and therefore the normal thing to do when individuals are “going together” or living together in an exclusive relationship.
When a couple breaks up after having had sexual relations, there is inevitable pain because of the severing of this bond.
To ease that pain, the young man and woman typically move quickly to establish a similar relationship with a new partner-repeating the same mistake.
As people move on to one sexual relationship after another, not only do they have to deal with the pain of these broken bonds, they establish the habit of short-term sexual relationships-a way of thinking that is more often than not carried over into marriage.
No wonder those who have sex prior to marriage have more divorces than those who don’t.Without this instruction, many young people make mistakes that hinder their potential for having a happy marriage.Loving parents would never wish misery on their children, but leaving them ignorant is a sure path to heartache.God said, “It is not good that man should be alone” (Genesis for us!Marriages are not only a basis for happiness, they offer us longer and better-quality lives.It then may proceed to the next level if both individuals are prepared and willing.
