    Is dating or courtship an important part of marriage?

      Okay, now I see what you meant by your OP. There's a reason I asked if you were serious about this, because I needed more clarification in order to be more informed on your position and that question was the simplest to ask. wink

      As for dating during marriage? I suppose there would be an upside if it was continued during the marriage. And, you're correct, it does tend to stop once marriage has happened.

      The exceptions to the rule would be the truly romantic at heart. wink

        I am fairly romantic... but life can squeeze that out of you if you aren't careful.  We've been married 22 years and I have fallen into both categories... for us 'dating' has been much better!

      It is if you want to have an open and honest relationship with your partner. Some stop "trying" when the "I do" bit is over, but often those relationships do not last and both people are miserable.

        Well, 1 our of 2 marriages don't last these days... that's staggering but fairly close to accurate!  So if we want them to work we have to roll up our sleeves and make them a priority!

      No, not kidding.  There are a lot of people who simply stop after they say "I do"...

    I just wrote a hub similar to this today, I prefer courtship but either one depending on how the experience is used is very important. because both of those open up friendship...friendship is important, it gives the married couple something to fall back if they start to have problems.

      Ms. Lofton, I look forward to giving it a read!  All marriages have problems because life is not easy.... but not all marriages have to have Marital problems... but in order to have a Healthy marriage we have to have two people that are willing to continue to work at it... put in the upkeep... before there is a Breakdown!
