The concept of dating is about as old as the automobile.

Nowadays we are so used to it that we might not be able to imagine any other approach to relationships. But back before the car, the reason why a man would invest time with a woman was to see if she was a potential marriage partner. The reason he expressed romantic interest was to woo her toward that lifelong commitment.

Follow us:

This process usually took place within the context of family activities. When the car was invented, this courting could be divorced from spending time with family because the couple could leave the family behind.

Soon, the whole point of spending time together shifted from discernment of marriage to wooing for the sake of wooing. Many people would begin a relationship simply because they found the other to be cute and fun. This put a new spin on the focus of relationships, and short-term relationships became commonplace.

With this mentality, a person who dates successfully breaks up with everyone in his life except for one person and this is supposed to be good preparation for a successful marriage. Of course, the majority of relationships do not end in marriage, but some become so intimate and intense that the couple might as well be married. If a breakup occurs, then they experience a sort of emotional divorce.

It is not uncommon that by the time a person is married, he feels like he has already been through five divorces. Am I supposed to shelter myself, put walls around my heart, and forget having a social life? The alternative is to rethink the way we approach relationships.
