Ultimately, this means learning to trust God's goodness and sovereignty.
What does this actually look like in a budding relationship between two people?
As a quick aside, if you are a single man and you would not describe yourself as ready to be married within a year, think about why that is.
I mention this for two reasons: 1) Scripture seems not just to encourage, but to assume that part of the growth into biblical manhood is to seek marriage, so this is a biblical goal; and 2) easily the biggest complaint that I and others who advocate this approach get from godly Christian women is that .
As I've written on this site before, "practice" and "recreation" are not good reasons to date.
Dating is for the purpose of finding a marriage partner.
In my view, if you can't happily picture yourself married within a year, you're not in a position to date.
