Courtship is a period set apart by spouses in order to try to win the affections of each other with a view to marriage. Therefore, in light of this, whatever you do in your process of courtship determines the success or failure of it.

However, in order to have successful courtship, below are some very important tips arranged to assist you:

1. BE AVAILABLE: So many things puts demands people’s attention today. Yet in the midst of all the distractions courting partners must make some sacrifices to be available with each other. This will help them have a better understanding of each other emotionally, physically, spiritually, and financially.

2. BE OF SERVICE TO YOURSELVES: In order to have a successful courtship, courting partners must be ready to be of service to each other. They must be ready to know each other’s needs and make sacrifices to solving then. These services may includes caring for each other, spending good time together in prayers for each other, and doing whatever will bring joy or happiness to each other within the period of courtship and during marriage.

3. BREAK EVERY SOUL TIE: To have a successful courtship, you must be prepared to break up any relationship you have earlier established with any other party. This is because when you maintain two or more relationships at a time, you put demands on your emotion and spirit. This is the same as flirting or lasciviousness; such kind of relationship will be a cancer to the success of your courtship and future marriage. To do this, you must pray well and be ready to stand for one person. Someone once said, “Those who cannot stand for one thing will fall for almost everything" .

4. BE HONEST TO YOURSELVES: A relationship built on lies is a relationship built on a sandy soil. It will collapse. A “preacher”once woo her partner through lies in their period of courtship but, regretably, a year after their wedding, the marriage collapsed. So to have a successful courtship, courting partners must be honest to themselves at all costs in all their dealings with each other.

5. MAINTAIN SEXUAL PURITY: Sex is for marriage and not for courtship. To have sex before marriage destroys love and trust. It will even bring guilt to your spirit. Therefore, to avoid this, you must say no to sex during courtship and prayerfully stand by it waiting for your wedding day. When you do this, you’ll find that God will honour your marriage in heaven and make it bliss on earth.
