However, even among Christians, there are differences as to whether you should or should not date.The choice is up to you and your parents, but Christian teens should still know God’s perspective on dating.
) “But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.” (Prov.
) “And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.” (Matt.
Non-Christians have a different perspective on dating.
You see the magazines, TV shows, and movies that tell you how you’re young, and you should date a lot of people before you get married.
On the contrary, the courtship was successful, because God gave the direction that was sought through it.
