The church has reached a difficult crossroads when it comes to pre–marriage romance.
Regardless of your theology on the Predestination of Girlfriends, you're probably eager to be an active participant in your dating life. Myth #2: "The Bible has clearly defined guidelines for dating." People didn't date in biblical times.Whom you married wasn't even up to you most of the time.Falling in love before you got married or engaged is a twentieth–century concept. In college, I had an older professor from Japan whose marriage had been arranged.Some Christians take a lot of comfort in the idea that God will do the heavy lifting when it comes to dating.God will tell them if a relationship is right, and God will end it if it's not.
