ABOUT THE BOOK
Love is a powerful, positive emotion. Like all emotions, you may experience it differently depending on your age, the relationship you’re in, and the kind of person you are.
Loving someone isn’t the same as being in love with them.
Being in love is the intense feeling at the start of a relationship, when you only see the positive things about the other person and walk around with your head in the clouds. This feeling can be so intense it actually hurts – especially if the person doesn’t feel the same way about you.
The feeling of being in love develops
over time, and becomes a deeper, steadier, tender feeling for the other person
– you love them.
Love develops in stages, and doesn’t always follow the same pattern. But in most cases love begins with the passion of sexual attraction, then the dreamy, overwhelming ‘in love’ stage, and finally the deeper attachment that develops over time and can last for years – sometimes for a lifetime.
The main difference between dating and courtship involves the goals to be reached by spending time with a potential marriage partner. Men and women who choose to date often have no commitment to consider marrying the other person. Maturity and readiness for marriage are not considerations in the decision to date. Instead, couples usually date with the selfish goals of having fun and enjoying romantic attachments.
In contrast, courtship is undertaken only when both parties are prepared to make a commitment to marriage. Dating tries to answer the question, How can I find the one who will make me happy? Courtship strives to answer the question, How can I honor God and discern His direction regarding my life partner?
Marriage is “the legal union of a man and a woman as husband and wife” (Webster’s Dictionary). Most people claim that they want their marriage to last a lifetime. Because over half of all marriages in the world end in a divorce, most people lack the understanding of what it takes to stay married. In this book, you will learn…
