Devotions for Dating Before Marriage - Introduction

Genesis 2:23-24

The man said, 'This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called `woman,'for she was taken out of man.'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. (NIV)

One of the goals of dating is to find someone to spend the rest of our lives with, someone to be married to, and who is "Mr. or Mrs. Right." After all, divorce is huge in society. It hurts and causes many problems in the lives of family. I want to be "one flesh" with only one person and get it right the first time.

These are legitimate thoughts held by young adults presently dating. God after all did design marriage to last a life time. Marriage, after all, is changing from "I" to "We" and from "Two" to "One." When the "We" and "One" is broken it really hurts and leaves a lifetime scar that though forgivable does not go away.

The goal of this devotion book is to give straightforward biblical stuff about marriage and dating that will help make your date life fun, safe, and joyful. The ultimate goal of dating or courtship as we shall see is to find "Mr. Right" or "Mrs. Right."
