Intentional friendship dating
(Share this) My husband says that attending weddings is like hanging out with God where it matters (Malachi 14: 2a) So that’s how we do it in Kenya : ) Again, this is an overall “sketch” of things, not a hard and fast rule. Of all of the relationships in your life, your friendships are probably the ones that seem least rocky. Parents and children go through their own trials and tribulations.
No playing around with someone else’s heart, body or mind. You have been observing one another, hanging out in group settings, talking.
After the official church ceremony, the afternoon is a time of celebration, dance, song and food!
Shortly after our wedding, we learned that attending other weddings keeps our own marriage fresh and refocuses us. What do you think about foundations as a single person?
You have decided you like what you see and have received positive feedback from a mentor or very good trusted friend. But courtship is the process by which you learn and discover if both of you are meant to be together.
At this time intentions have been declared, you know what you are doing and why you are doing it Tommy and I had been hanging out with a good friend of ours but we ditched them at this point : ) We still hang out in groups but we also spent time together. Ideally at this point, “the question” has been asked and the answer (a “yes”) given. The elaborateness does not begin on the wedding day itself, but long before when the groom-to-be visits the girl’s parents to declare his intentions for their girl. The visits and dowry negotiations can be drawn out and delicate and will often involve extended family members and friends.
