Some people prefer to meet their spouse through friends, family, or in a chance meeting out in the world, and many do just that.
In fact, it doesn’t even tell us how to “date” or “court,” or whatever term we use for the process we use to get to know a potential mate.
In the Bible times, dating did not exist in the same form that we see it today.
For these people, it may be wise to consider other methods.
Some of the modern methods of finding a mate include internet or online dating, professional matchmaking services, and speed dating.
A Christian man should take the lead in relationships and making sure their relationship glorifies Christ in all things.
A Christian woman should let the man take the initiative as the leader God made him to be.
God uses our choices, other people, and sometimes even modern technology, to bring about marriages.
Before a Christian single considers any of the “newer” methods of finding a spouse like using a Christian dating service, it’s helpful to consider whether we may be engaging in any self-defeating behavior.
Some of these people are trying to con the men and women they meet.
Be careful about any personal details you share via online communication.
Warnings aside, though, many happy Christian marriages have come out of internet dating.
