Courtship Before Marriage Is A Waste Of Time And Very Improper-pst. Chris

i just finish listening to Pst. Chris Ojigbani. He spoke bitterly against courtship which he described as a waste of time. According to the renowned marriage counselor, you can never study a partner in toto so why waste time. He said two people can never be compatible . I kind of see some facts in what he said. What are your opinions?

I disagree. Courtship based on God's will is the best. God said do not be un equally yoked so how else are you going to know if someone is an authentic christian except through courtship. At least thats my view on it. I

He sited an example with your question that during courtship either party will do everything to please the other. If a guy finds out that you are the churchy kind, she will do same to please you.

even when i said i watched it on air. Any Pst. Chris said that courtship is the cause of most divorce as couples get shocked at the other spouse behavioral attitudes which is an aberration of the alluring attitudes during courtship.

If it involves immoral practices that are rampant nowadays amongst courting couples, then its absolutely not good viewing it from the moral and religious stand point...but from the worldly and trendy view, its the craze of the society and if you aren't doing same, people see you as ABNORMAL...so let everyone please whom he desires to please- God, conscience, man, or society...its up to them...but pastor must say the truth no matter who it hurts grin

I agree with the Pastor.
Courtship won't change a thing.

Its not a must. With all the actors playing safe patiently awaiting the grand Finale.

You can only keep up an act fo so long, a courtship of a year or two, though not void of one or two deceits here and there, is much better than jumping into marriage with a total stranger, that's primitive and naive, how can you enter a life time union without having basic knowledge of your partner?

Little things like his/her favourite food, tv programs, hang out spots, birthday, are some necessities, likes and dislikes included, you might nopt have a total knowledge, cos things will still come out during marriage, even couples who have been married twenty years don't know some things about each other, but courtship is highly necessary for a basic relationship with anyone.

Pastor is just looking for customers that will bring marital problems to him and come for one deliverance/revival or the other when shele happen for marriage.

I think it's not a total waste of time. Since change is constant, we can say that courtship does not present the platform to know everything about a partner.

this is the case if she knows you are looking for a wife. but i can't imagine why a man will just meet a lady and tell her he wants to marry her. in my opinion have a relationship with a lady during that time you will know if you like her enough to be your wife then you can ask for her hand in marriage so i dont see how she will cheat this way.

courtship of not less than 2yrs is absolutely impt before marriage. While you may nt kw everything abt ur partner within this period, u ll kw enough to tolerate d ones unknown when they start coming until death do u part. 100 percent compatible is nt possible even for identical twins.

If a pastor gives his opinion, people assume it to be the way of the Lord. Why don't you use common sense before you bring a stranger into your spiritual and emotional life?

and for the record, courtship lessens marriage problems.
