Differences between seeing someone and dating

Are we supposed to be actively looking for a spouse?

Question: "What is the difference between dating and courting?

" Answer: Dating and courtship are two methods of beginning relationships with the opposite sex.

Of course, the courtship style presents its own set of difficulties.

While many courtship advocates see it as the only choice for finding a mate, others find it oppressive and overly controlling.

Many in a courtship relationship will not spend any time together unless family members, preferably parents, are present at all times.

In addition, courting couples state up front that their intentions are to see if the other person is a suitable potential marriage partner.

In addition, it can be hard to find the “real” person behind the public face presented in front of the entire family.

No one is the same in a group setting as he or she is one-on-one.

Scripturally speaking, the result of the process—godly Christian men and women marrying and raising families to the glory of God—is far more important than the method they use to achieve that result.

"Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Corinthians , NKJV).

First and foremost, dating is a time when a Christian finds out if his or her potential marriage partner is also a believer in Christ.
