Courtship – It’s Duration And The Termination
“Marriage is honorable in all and the bed undefiled; but whore-mongers and adulterers God will judge”. Hebrews 13:4
Courtship is the period between the time a lady agrees to marry a man and the time they eventually go to the altar.Courtship period is very important. It is a period when intending couples get to know each other in preparation for a colorful wedding and glorious marriage. And it is a period when intending couples must be very careful because many people have fallen into the error of pre-marital sex during this period.
Scripturally, no time period is specified for courtship. But courtship should not be too short or too long. We advise that courtship should be at least for six months and should not be allowed to exceed two years. But this is not a law.
