An Unmarried Mess

Titus 2:1-8
A couple should make sure they know each other for a sufficient amount of time before discussing marriage. They should watch how the other person reacts to different situations, how he/she behaves around family and friends, and what kind of people he/she spends time with. A person's behavior is greatly influenced by those he/she keeps company with (1 Corinthians 15:33). They should agree on issues such as morality, finances, values, children, church attendance and involvement, relationships with in-laws, and employment. These are areas of potential conflict in marriage and should be carefully considered beforehand.
