Things That Courtship is NOT

Courtship is great when it’s done right, however there are lots of myths, misconceptions and misnomers around the topic. So, I wanted to take a moment to set the record straight. Courtship is not an arranged marriage, it shouldn’t be forced upon one party, and it definitely shouldn’t be dictated solely by parents/pastors/authorities where the individuals feel unduly influenced. It should be a mutual decision between both parties and it should be a time for those two individuals to use the time of courtship to make an informed decision.
