What are the rules for dating courtship

The definition and meaning of courtship may sound outdated to some in our modern world.

Being fast is certainly not a part of the relationship for a Filipina woman.Since the rules of courtship in Philippines says that you have to court the entire family and not the girl only, it is required to inform the parents before courting the girl.As per the traditions, it is also expected of the man to bring small presents for the family each time he gives them a visit.2-Courting prioritizes mental connection by intentionally getting to know all aspects of the person.3-Courting cultivates emotional closeness, safety, and vulnerability.After a while, it is allowed for the couple to make their relationship public and let their friends and family know about their romantic life.

At this stage, it is required of the man to visit the family of the girl in order to introduce himself formally.

In other words, going through the stages of the relationship and complications that western men aren’t always accustomed to is certainly going to be worth the wait at the end of the day.

1-Courting puts spiritual connection first to become equally yoked.

There is a huge difference in courtship as far as the Western societies and Filipina is concerned.

Being more indirect in the latter, relationships in Filipina are to go through a number of different stages before ending in a marriage.

It’s time for Christians to resurrect the idea of courting and redefine what godly relationships should look like. God instructs us to “.be yoked together with unbelievers..” (2 Corinthians , NIV).
