Talking dating relationship stages
But character is the foundation upon which commitment is built.
Character does not change just because one gets married.
Our emotions need to “grow” into this type of deep Christian dating relationship.

It is very important that each person have their own accountability group of their own gender.The progress of the Christian dating relationship should be shared so that their objectivity and accountability can be a valuable resource to the couple.
