Things will likely be very difficult down the road if one of you feels strongly called to a particular life or ministry that the other would absolutely dread.You can also discuss things like interests, family, emotional issues, etc.As I've mentioned before, you should also discuss things like important theological issues and where you're comfortable going to church — to make sure the two of you are basically on the same page.You should find one of two things as you have this these conversations regarding goals and anticipated ministries; there should either be a good deal of commonality between your goals and visions, or there should be significant flexibility on the part of the woman (who would one day be called to submit to her husband's headship with regard to career, direction of the family, etc.).
This time, I want to apply some of the same principles we've been thinking about to a relationship that moves beyond the "early stages" and gets serious.
We know online dating can be frustrating, so we built our site with one goal in mind: Make online dating free, easy, and fun for everyone.
Finding a date with Mingle2 has never been simpler.
Clarity and intentions should be established when things move from "testing the waters" to "yeah, the water's fine." Don't assume that because you agreed to start dating or courting (presumably with the intention to determine whether marriage was the right thing) you (or your partner) will "just know" when things begin to progress. Maybe, but being deliberate and clear about where the relationship is need not suck all the fun, spontaneity and feeling out of the whole affair.
In the design of a relationship that we're carving out here, caring well for one another means we can't place too high a premium on being clear. In fact, many women tell me they deeply appreciate such clarity.
