How to start a christian dating relationship
But, 1 Corinthians 13:7 tells us, Take 10 minutes to write down a list of reasons you love and appreciate your boyfriend or girlfriend. We’re all going to mess it up big time at some point, but 1 Peter 4:8 commands us to, Father God, thank you for being the ultimate relationship in my life and teaching me how to selflessly love.
So to answer this question, “When should a Christian start dating?
A mature 18-year-old young man may be ready to be a godly husband more than a 35-year-old guy still unemployed with a quick temper. Most 25 to 30-year-olds will be more mature than most 18 to 25-year-olds.
That’s a generalization and does not apply to everyone.
If you are a female, are you ready to manage your household, raise children if you unexpectedly get pregnant, and respect the leadership of your husband?
These questions can’t be answered by someone’s age. Most of the time there is some correlation, however, between age and maturity.
So to get this answer about the timing of dating, we will have to come at this from another biblical angle.
