For most, the pursuit of romance starts out with caution; we spend time searching and evaluating to find someone who’s a perfect fit.
Over time, however, our romantic pursuits can become rushed as the prospect of being alone for a lifetime blurs our discernment.

I’ve been dating this man for two years now and he prepared me that he’ll be making a proposal soon.But when we announced our engagement I received a few emails from the pastor saying the Bible is clear that the relationship is wrong and that I need to end it. I knew that, out of love, I would receive some hostility from Christian friends, but it is getting to the point where I do not want to go back to church, because of the volume of people telling me to end the relationship—when they cannot give me a reason for doing so, other than him being a non-Christian.
