How to Start your
Marriage in the Church


Dating can be a wonderful, fun, and exciting time. The same is true for marriage. One thing you need to do is start out on the right foot in your marriage. If you don’t do it at the very beginning it will be difficult later on.

From the very beginning when you are dating, you need to be very clear that you go to church and you will not stop. If they don’t want that, then it’s time to move on. If this person doesn’t want to go to church with you, then it will cause problems in the long run. It doesn’t mean you can’t try to get them to go, but at the same time, you can’t force them to go either.

You can give the dating thing a try for a while to see if you can show them that church is where they need to be, but don’t let it go on to long. It’s a good idea to go to church together from the beginning. Now that doesn’t mean you can’t date a person if you have no plans to marry them. It also doesn’t mean you can’t date a person that goes to a different church than you.

Finding the right person can be a challenge. You need to look in the right place and that can be difficult as well. There are online dating services, but who knows what you will find there, so you may want to find places that are specifically for Christians. You might also try church functions or events sponsored by the church.

There are many different ways you can find the right person to date and maybe even marry. You just have to look in the right places and maybe ask the right people. The bars and other places like that are no good for a Christian person. It’s better to stay away from that seen.

If church isn’t something you talk about right away that’s ok, but you need to make sure it’s something you talk about before you get married. You need to be clear and have an understanding of the situation before hand. If your future spouse doesn’t want to have anything to do with the church, then you may not want to get married. You don’t want this person to try and convince you that church is not good and it’s a waste of time. We know that is not true.

Starting your marriage in the church is so important. It’s the best way to get your marriage started on the right foot. If you don’t share your believes with your future spouse, it may not work later. It’s better to find out earlier rather than later.
