Dating advice breakups
Sometimes the best thing you can do for your future spouse is to not date.If your history looks serial, you might need to break up with dating for a while. Now, you’re back at square one in the quest for marriage, and it feels lonelier than square one, and further from the altar, because of all you’ve spent and lost.No one begins dating someone hoping to break it off someday.There are things about us — weaknesses or patterns of behavior — that may disqualify us for marriage with a particular person.But it does not nullify God’s grace to and through you.
This doesn’t mean every dating relationship should end in marriage, but it does mean breakups will hurt.
It’s too easy to leave a trail of wounded people behind in our pursuit of a partner.
It’s a lie to think that you’re not moving toward marriage if you’re not dating someone right now.
And the easiest way to find it is to rebound right away.
But if we care about God, our witness, our ex, and our future significant other, we’ll wait, pray, and date patiently and carefully.
