Tips for a Christian
Learn to put God first in your life! Be prepared for a Christian marriage!
Read the Bible, attend a church you feel comfortable with. Study God's wisdom
for marriage, husbands and wives. The Bible gives us one very important
instruction in this area, and that is to be "equally yoked". (II
Corinthians 6:14) Study this and understand it's true meaning!
Know Yourself! Take the time to make any necessary changes YOU may need so
that you can become a good partner to someone. You CANNOT be happy in ANY
marriage without first being happy yourself!
Know what you need! You must know what your needs are so that you can
communicate them to a potential partner. These are the things you cannot
compromise on! Ask your partner what his/her needs are. Find out whether the
two of you can meet these needs for each other. We can't even begin to tell
you how important this really is!
Learn to accept the warning signals you feel while dating someone! The
realization that someone your dating is not your "special someone" is half the
battle. You could spend a lifetime trying to make a relationship work, that
essentially, would never work! Everyone has good and bad qualities. Just
because you may not be suited for someone does not mean that that person would
not be a great partner for someone else! If it's not "right", respect yourself
and that person enough to let go. Both of you deserve a happy life.
Don't live in fear about the possibilities that you may be single in your
lifetime. Fear breeds insanity while dating! Your needs won't matter at all!
You can make very foolish decisions if this fear takes over. Fill your life
with the things that make you happy. Give it to God and LEAVE it there!
Excessive drinking, (practicing alcoholics, weekend binger's etc.),
substance abusers and the like, are "NOT AVAILABLE" for a committed
relationship. These individuals need help and the disease or diseases make
them, for the moment, unable to sustain a healthy relationship. It is
impossible by God's standards to worship anything above Him! God must always
come first! This type of "relationship" will only prove to hurt you over and
over again. Always encourage, as much as possible, that they seek the help
they so deserve, so that one day they can experience the life that God has
intended for them. For Christian Resources for recovery on the internet, go to

Seek a good reputable Christian counselor, if possible, to assist you in
making the right decision. Marriage is a, COMMITMENT, for LIFE. You owe it to
yourself to make the best possible decision. Finding the right mate and making
an lifetime commitment to that person is a wonderful gift from God!
HOW DO I
"My Heart was so peaceful, my
spirit was free, I had no doubt!"
Do you feel...PEACE....PEACE....PEACE....Peace in your heart!! None of
those feelings in your gut that you know something is not right! "But just
maybe things will change". Are you making excuses for someone, even when you
don't agree, or it hits the core of who you are? If you need to make even one
excuse to yourself for someone, you need to take a hard look at the direction
your going. This is the big one folks!
Are you fighting/making up...fighting/making up? This is not a sign that
the two of you are pairing up quite right. God did not intend for marriage to
be a battle ground of wills. If this is happening while dating, you can be
sure it will continue when married. This goes against every marriage principle
we have ever known. This goes back to needs. Someone's needs are being
ignored, sometimes, these needs cannot be met. Its important to know whether a
potential mate can meet your needs and you to them. Knowing the difference can
save you alot of potential heartache!
We assume that if you are reading this you are Christian or wanting to
become a Christian, therefore,
sex..should never be an issue in dating!!
Here's what we mean by that. If either partner is feeling pressured by sex,
this is not a Christian relationship/marriage in the making. You can be sure
that this relationship is not based on Godly principle. This goes back to
knowing what you need, once again. If you want and need a Christian marriage,
this will tell you which direction you are heading. There are no excuses for
this one! God intended sexual relations between husband and wife in the
sanctity of marriage!
