Erwin dating for marriage
And the romantic affair made Oprah wonder if she and partner Stedman Graham should tie the knot.
“I think that it’s interesting that you would ask it because I thought about it again at Tina Turner’s wedding,” Oprah revealed.
When you think about many of country’s couples, you may think they seem perfect.Until you think about putting yourself (or your daughter) into someone else’s “incubator” for a few months, or years, while he or she tries out their “sexual feelings” and “moral limits.” We put too much of ourselves at risk in dating to donate our hearts to someone’s romantic experiment.The truth is we have given dating far too much credit, and far too much power in our pursuit of marriage.Godly wisdom is a wide stream, and God’s word often allows us to apply his heart and wisdom in remarkably different ways, even in dating. It came in many forms, but it goes something like this: So, I started paying tuition, registered for classes, purchased the textbooks, jumped into relationship after relationship, and never looked back — until I wanted my money back.My problem was that I subtly treated each new relationship — each marriage — like a mini-marriage. The men or women we date are not a series of lab experiments that prepare us to be a better husband or wife.
