    How Long Should One Be In Courtship Before Marriage?

    Courtship

    Scripturally, no time is specified. But based on the marriage counsellor’s advice, no courtship should be less than six months and more than two years, except where there is sickness or parental objection.

    If it is less than six months, there is a danger of not knowing each other at all before the wedding. If you rush into marriage, you cannot rush out but can only be crushed.

    The dangers of long courtship are as following:

    It can lead to sexual immorality because of too much exposure to each other.

    It may make you become less committed to the things of God as you will give much of your attention to your partner.

    It is emotionally demanding.

    It can lead to evil suggestions from friends and family.

    It can lead to a broken courtship.

    It is too demanding.

    It is costly. It might involve you travelling to see your partner, sending letters, calling. Sending, E-mails and gifts can be very expensive.
