8)A person’s real character has a way of making an appearance overtime #SinglesDate
9)At the same time don’t let the courtship be overlong except either of you is still in school or travelled #SinglesDate
10)It’s an opportunity to get to know each other better via communication. Ask questions about his beliefs/background/goals etc #SinglesDate
11)Read between the lines. Seek to understand him/her. It’s a moment of truth. Avoid every form of deception #SinglesDate
12)If there is anything in your past he/she needs to know, divulge it earlier on in the relationship #SinglesDate
13)Give him or her the benefit of the doubt. Don’t wait till the marriage date is set before dropping your bombshell #SinglesDate
14)Knowing fully well he/she might not have the nerve to call off the wedding! You have already laid a wrong foundation for your home #SinglesDate
15)Do your background check. The place of the Holy Spirit can’t be overemphasized here. He will reveal things about your partner to you #SinglesDate
16)In getting to know each other, avoid ‘knowing’ each others’ bodies. Sex is a no no! #SinglesDate
17)Premarital sex erodes trust, breeds suspicion and brings guilt. Avoid it by all means. #SinglesDate
18)The sexual urge is VERY strong and can defy the best of intentions so avoid being alone in secluded places for too long #SinglesDate
19)Don’t be blinded with lust! Fornication blinds you from seeing the red flags in your relationship #SinglesDate
20)Yes, love is great but definitely not blind! Go in with your eyes wide open! Love is more than just a feeling! #SinglesDate
21)Love is a commitment; a decision! Your intended is not perfect and neither are you. #SinglesDate
22)He/she is coming with a lot of baggage into the marriage relationship, are you willing to unpack with him/her? #SinglesDate
23)Learn each others’ Love Languages. Learn what makes he/she ticks. Don’t overlook what you can’t tolerate hoping to change him/her #SinglesDate
24)As a Single, its essential to discover your purpose and possibly doing something in that line before getting engaged #SinglesDate
25)LRT Why? It helps both of you to know right early if you are going in the same direction in life. Can 2walk 2gether except they agree? #SinglesDate
26)Do you have your parents’ blessing? If you don’t, pls soft pedal. Find out the bone of contention. #SinglesDate
27)Involve your pastors or elders in your family. Don’t let it be said that you disregarded their opinion #SunglesDate
28)Look into their grievances and reservations. Allay their fears! Get their blessings! #SinglesDate
29)Sort this out anyway you can else you may be setting yourself up for untold anguish in the future @SinglesDate
30)Issues like genotypes, blood groups, salaries, where to stay etc should be discussed and a compromise reached #SinglesDate
31)For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife! Marriage is for a MAN and a WOMAN! #SinglesDate
32)Is he a ‘Mummy’s Boy’? I once heard of a husband that had to visit his mum every evening after work to take his dinner b4 coming home. #SinglesDate
33)Is she a ‘Daddy’s Girl’? She has to run everything by her Dad before she makes her decisions? #SinglesDate
34)Adam was alone in the garden of Eden but not lonely! Check yourself, are you in the relationship ‘cos of loneliness? #SinglesDate
35)Deliberately cultivate friendship with your intended during courtship. Soulmates aren’t born but made! #SinglesDate
36)Developing friendship relationship is an impt factor to a long and lasting relationship in marriage #SinglesDate
37)I guess before you propose or you accepted his proposal as the case might be, you must have been convinced #SinglesDate
38)Before you walk down the aisle is the time to prove these proposed marriage convictions #SinglesDate
39)By the time you are finally getting married, having taken the aforementioned ‘wise words’ into consideration… #SinglesDate
40)…you should be sure you have made the right decision by marrying YOUR FRIEND if not your best friend! #SinglesDate
41)Investing all you can into your future marriage is no where comparable to the fuss we make getting prepared for the wedding day! #SinglesDate
42)In summary, if after all these soul searching, you are still very uneasy or you feel pressured into the courtship, pls get out! #SinglesDate
