Roles of dating engagement marriage
Courtship is the systematic process that one undergoes in order to ensure compatibility with a lifelong partner.
As a practical matter, are you responsible and holy in the way you possess your own spirit, mind and body?
Second, are you at a place in your life at which you are ready and able to marry?
As I've written on this site before, "practice" and "recreation" are not good reasons to date.
Will you be able, generally speaking, to serve God better together than apart?
Will you be able to accomplish ministry (be it your original plan or one that you have caught a vision for through this person) more effectively together than apart? Look at the roles laid out there for men and women.
