Once you meet someone and you fall in love and you are about to go into courtship, go quickly for four basic medical tests. Genotype, Hepatitis, Blood Group, HIV & HIV AIDS.
What are the signals during courtship that may lead you to stop the courtship?
#1. Genotype Disagreement
You need genotype that agrees with your genotype and you need to find out about this medically before courtship deepens and before you introduce your fiancee to your family. What I mean is this:
AA can marry AA; AA can also marry AS
Anything outside the two above will need doctor’s advise, therefore see a doctor.
Any discovery of Hepatitis in any of you after your medical tests is a signal to stop further courtship. Hear that well and give it serious consideration.
#3. Differences In Faith
A Christian should marry a Christian.Once you discover that the brother or sister you are in courtship with has deceived you into believing that he or she is a Christian but not, stop the courtship.
#3. Constant Requests For Sex
Run away from a partner constantly requesting for sex- he is not interested in you but wants you as a means of satisfying his sexual urge, stop courtship.
#4. Payment Of Dowry
If the lady has dated somebody who has paid dowry on her before you meet her as the new lover, stop the courtship.
#5. Questionable Character
If you discover a particular character or behaviour in him or her that may cause
serious problem in your new life as spouses in the future and you try to correct it and it proves impossible, stop the courtship.
Courtship Can Break
Brethren, courtship can break for good, marriage must not.
…This is another thing you do. You drown the Lord’s altar with tears, weeping and wailing because he no longer accepts the offerings you bring him. You ask why he no longer accepts them. It is because he knows you have broken your promise to the wife you married when you were young. She was your partner, and you have broken your promise to her, although you promised before God that you would be faithful to her. Didn’t God make you one body and spirit with her? What was his purpose in this? It was that you should have children who are truly God’s people. So make sure that none of you breaks his promise to his wife. “I hate divorce,” says the Lord God of Israel. “I hate it when one of you does such a cruel thing to his wife. Make sure that you do not break your promise to be faithful to your wife…
