Dating Assessment tool
The word 'dating' is not found in the Bible. However, a lot of people nowadays are dating before getting married. In the Bible marriage is called a lifelong covenant between one man and one woman. Married couples should leave their parents (Genesis 2:24), live together (Matthew 19:3-6), and respect and love each other (Ephesians 5:21-33). In a Christian marriage, the marriage covenant is a binding agreement between husband and wife in a close relationship with God. Sexual relationships in the Biblical worldview are reserved for the married couple inside wedlock. Dating people who strive for a good marriage need to know about marriage before they make decisions that are hard to reverse. Especially people without a Christian background need instructions and help. Therefore we post below a dating assessment tool. The tool can be used by singles and by people who already date. We suppose that you already have a possible partner in mind. Therefore we talk about "we". You are free to use this tool privately or together as a dating couple. At the end of the 4-question quiz we offer you a recommendation for your consideration. It's what we have learnt over time using Biblical principles.
