When it comes to dating, the primary purpose for a Christian is to seek marriage. However, there are other ways to glorify God with our love life. It is important to be mindful of these secondary reasons and not use them as an excuse to date recklessly. If we do, it can lead to confusion and heartbreak for ourselves and others.
Even if someone is dating with the intention of finding someone to marry, there is still a chance that they will remain single for part or all of their life.Modern dating assumes that adults have the freedom to choose who they date and that it is a private matter. This can cause single Christians to feel pressured to get married, even if it is just to have sex within the confines of marriage.
