And as I look back on past relationships, I can see why Matt and I are the best match compared to others we each dated.
Don’t get me wrong, you could probably make your current relationship work.
I’ve read many books about relationships and Christian dating. His views helped me establish my own standards regarding marriage.
I decided that I wanted nothing less than God’s best for me. It means if you have doubts about the relationship, if your significant other doesn’t treat you with the upmost respect, if you argue more than you get along, if you constantly find yourself defending him or her to your friends, then end it.
Did those caring, sensitive, funny, godly men really exist?
For instance, one guy that I dated was a very nice guy.
His job often seemed more important to him than our relationship, and he would repeatedly put friends or family before me.
For someone whose “love language” is spending quality time together, that was a major issue.” “If we have children, will it be important to him that they are raised by godly principles and involved in church?” It turns out we were not in sync on these issues, and I decided to end the relationship. But I began to notice subtle patterns that bothered me.I believe that there are any number of people that we each could marry and make it work – and even be happy.But I also believe that we will be happiest in marriage if we allow God to choose our mate for us.When friends began to point out other red flags about our relationship, I took some time to seriously seek God’s will on the matter.
