A wonderful, God-blessed, God-honoring marriage is what it {courtship} is all about. And it’s the potential for just that that makes it worth the effort to do the courtship right. A godly courtship establishes habits and patterns that can continue until ‘death do us part’. This is why we want to make God’s glory our priority. This is why we want to grow in friendship. This is why we want to love righteousness and flee temptation. Because these are the qualities we want to define our marriages.
