Date with a purpose. During the dating season it's important to go out of your way to get to know the person you may eventually marry. Ask them EVERY question that comes to mind. If you're dating them exclusively then you both have the right to ask each other difficult questions. After all, you may end up spending the rest of your life with this person.
What does their credit look like? What do their spending habits look like? What does their spiritual life look like & is it in alignment with yours? (nothing worse than raising children in a divided household - hello arguments) What is their vision for life, marriage, family? Do they have a retirement plan? Where do they see themselves in 5, 10, 20 years from now? Then ask yourself if you can live with their answers to your questions. If you can, then joyfully proceed. If not then really pray and ask God if you're with the right person. Dating should be fun yet purposeful. You get to date to pick the person that you'll forever be best friend's, companion's, and lover's with. So choose wisely and Happy dating.
