Dating Is To Prepare For Marriage!Dating is meant to prepare to get married or not.

Please contact us if you have any questions, comments, or encouragement.

I like what Vanessa Hudgens said, “Do not just look at your boyfriend as just a boyfriend. Look at him as a friend, too.” When dating, it is the way to get to know each other before one takes the step to commit life to each other.

Typically the dating process takes at least one year (4 seasons) to determine compatibility and like-minded goals. If there is doubt about getting married, I would highly suggest not to because divorce is horrid and painful. Here are a few links about the topic of dating that will help you. ~ Bill Greguska


2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

Dating Information That Will Benefit You!

Some Specific Scriptures To Encourage You:

1 John 4:18 ESV 

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 ESV 

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful.

Psalm 85:10 ESV 

Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.

Song of Solomon 8:6-7 ESV 

Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised.

Proverbs 18:22 ESV 

He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.

Revelation 2:4 ESV

But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.

Mark 11:24-25 ESV 

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.”

Proverbs 19:14 ESV 

House and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the Lord.

Genesis 2:18-25 ESV 

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” Now out of the ground, the Lord God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam, there was not found a helper fit for him. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept, took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV 

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

About the Author:

In 2007, my pastor Ron Sauer and his wife Sue encouraged me to encourage others, knowing that I was struggling in my own life. They were wise to know that if I reached out to help other people, my problems would be put into perspective. I did, and it helped! Read 2 Corinthians 1:3-4. And If you do not have a relationship with God, I encourage you to learn about Him here. I trust you will find the encouragement you need here on this website. You can also call 800-633-3446. ~ Bill Greguska
