Between dating difference relationship

In addition, some courtship situations have led to borderline “arranged marriages” by the parents and have resulted in resentment in one or both of the young people.

It is important to remember that neither dating nor courtship is mandated in Scripture.

While many courtship advocates see it as the only choice for finding a mate, others find it oppressive and overly controlling.

In addition, it can be hard to find the “real” person behind the public face presented in front of the entire family.

What's the difference between "just dating" and "boyfriend/girlfriend"?

Yes, I know "just dating" is non-commital, but--How do you know if you've "secured" the title?

Finally, care must be taken to avoid the pitfall of believing one’s personal preference—dating or courting—is the “only way” and looking down upon those who make the opposite choice.Courtship takes the position that the two people have no physical contact at all (no touching, no hand-holding, no kissing) until marriage.Many in a courtship relationship will not spend any time together unless family members, preferably parents, are present at all times.In the end, the Christian character and spiritual maturity of the couple is far more important than the exact nature of how and when they spend time together.Scripturally speaking, the result of the process—godly Christian men and women marrying and raising families to the glory of God—is far more important than the method they use to achieve that result.
