Nothing in my life and faith has been more confusing and spiritually hazardous than my pursuit of marriage. Maybe you’ve wanted the relationship or liked the guy or girl, and you’ve never had the chance.
From far too young, I longed for the affection, safety, and intimacy I anticipated with a wife. I experimented too much with our hearts and allowed things to go too far. And now my singleness is a regular reminder that I messed up, missed opportunities, or did it wrong. Maybe all the suggestions and advice you’ve collected has become a confusing mess of good-intentioned contradictions and ambiguity.
Through many dangers, toils and snares I finally "won" the game and married a wonderful GGL - gorgeous godly lady.
The Bible clearly says believers shouldn't date or marry someone who is not a fellow Christ-follower (2 Corinthians -15; 1 Corinthians ).
If you're in a dating relationship with someone who isn't a Christian, then you are outside of God's will for your life.
Many want to know how they can go about getting to know someone and eventually getting married without getting hurt or compromising their faith.
At Focus on the Family, we've offered a range of resources and expert advice bringing biblical principles to bear in this area.
Marriages were typically arranged for the parties involved. God still commanded husbands and wives to love one another and submit to one another’s needs and interests (Ephesians -33).
