But if you don’t want to become like the person you’re dating, should you be dating?

Two people who are following Christ can still have some different core values that tangibly direct their decisions.Covering topics like- How we were raised, our family dynamics, our expectations of family and marriage- Former dating/marital/sexual relationships if there were any- Our view of the church, Jesus, denomination, doctrine, other religions etc- Expec This book is fantastic.When my husband was courting me (yes I use the word court, because marriage was our goal from the day we met each other and we weren't able to date in the 'normal' sense) we went over this book of 101 questions to ask each other.Covering topics like- How we were raised, our family dynamics, our expectations of family and marriage- Former dating/marital/sexual relationships if there were any- Our view of the church, Jesus, denomination, doctrine, other religions etc- Expectations of behaviour, roles in a spouse- Habitual sin, former abuse issues- Our views on sex, children, finances, health, aging etc- And other simple little dating questions like preferences re leisure activities, food, books, movies, music etc Instead of prenup agreements I rechon this book should be compulsory reading to EVERY couple who want to get a wedding licence and get married.
