I think that no other verse compared to this one when talking about love!
“So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her.” (Genesis 29:20)

Ah yes, that is true love BibleLoveVerses. Jack here at WCWTK wrote a great article about Jacob and Rachel, you can read it here:

i need some advice about a potential partner. I was reading the Bible and came across a saying about wisdom. I was looking for answers dont know if i found one. I use to date this female back when i was younger she broke up with me and she got married and then devorced and has a son now. I read that it is unholy for a man to remarry his wife after she has devorced him and married somebody else. Does this rule apply if we were dating?

I’m not exactly sure if I’m clear on what your whole situation is, but I noticed no one had answered your question yet so I figured I’d give it a shot. In Matthew 19:1-9 Jesus answers a question of the Pharisees about divorce. He gives them the one and only reason a person is allowed to divorce (verses 8-9). The Bible is clear in its teaching that divorce is only for the reason of sexual immorality. I’m not entirely sure if that answers your question or not, but I’m trying to approach it from a few angles.
If your question is whether or not you are allowed to marry her after her divorce, you must ask the question whether or not she was divorced for the right reason. There are several other passages that address this subject, but I just wanted to give you a big one from Jesus’ words in the gospels. If you have any other questions hopefully we can help! God bless!

In the above: When you are using Psalms 46:5 to talk about finding your significant other, the passage is actually describing the sacred home of the Most High. It is talking about how the house of God cannot be destroyed. In my NLT version it says “A river brings joy to the city of our God, the sacred home of the Most High. God dwells in that city, it cannot be destroyed. From the very break of day, God will protect it.” Psalms 46:4-5

Tyler Burke June 11, 2012 at 1:33 am

Reading a lot of the verses you have selected plus the verses leading up to the selected verse, I feel you have taken a lot of them out of context. 1 Peter 4:8 But most important, continue to show deep love for each other, for lover covers a multitude of sins. Now read this, 1 Peter 4:7-9 The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers. But most important, continue to show deep love for each other, for lover covers a multitude of sins. Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay.

Joe August 9, 2015 at 1:32 pm

I’m not so sure about the “like-minded” thing. My first date was someone I had (and still have) a lot in common with. But we only went out one time, because she claimed we were “different.) Yet she married someone she has almost nothing in common with, and I did also. The people I get along with best are those whom I seem to have little in common with.

Praise be to God… :)God bless everyone.. 🙂

My heart is hurts and I am so sad over an ended relationship…I know he was not right for me and he is not a Christian….but I miss him terribly!
I miss the friendship as much as the relationship. I know God won’t tempt me with more than what i can endure- yet I am right there on the edge….and I just want that companionship because i am lonely!
Please take a minute to reach out to a friend or acquaintance that you know
might be lonely or hurting….thanks!

Kris January 19, 2016 at 11:42 pm

I’m not sure if this will get a ply, but it’s worth a shot.
I have been dating this guy for a year and a half now, he’s not a Christian, so that’s already one problem. He’s broken up with me several times, due to his own complexes and such. He flipped once again this July that passed, and left me. During the break (obviously extremely hurt) I worked on myself, and spent a lot of time with a long time guy friend.
I used to have a crush on this friend, but obviously it didn’t exist when I was with my boyfriend of the time. I spending time with this friend, those feelings resurfaced. And I didn’t want to accept it because I had honestly felt that God had put my ex in my life (for a long term relationship/marriage). But this friend is first and foremost a Christian. Not strong strong, but he understands my beliefs and my morals completely. He’s never mocked me, unlike my ex. He has been there emotionally for me, so much more than my ex had/has been. And I felt that he liked me as well, but he never made a mood; I’m assuming because he was respecting the fact that I still had feelings for my ex. I enjoyed the company from my friend but wasn’t sure because I missed being in a relationship or what.
So in November my ex and I start speaking again, and finally got back together in December. But in all honesty, I felt that I didn’t completely believe that he could have possibly changed every single little thing that he had wrong. But this was who, from what I believed from past experiences, was the man for me. So I went with the flow. Before we got officially together, everything was wonderful. I was so in love with him. We got back together and it still was great for a while, but things started happening left and right, getting worse and worse each problem.
I recently had a friend that passed. A true child of God. The day I found out, my boyfriend was trying to deny it and telling me that he has to be okay, this and that. Eventually he accepted that it was true, but then he started petty fights, so he wasn’t there for me emotionally, whatsoever. My other two friends (one being the guy I mentioned earlier) were there for me right away. The day of the funeral, everyone was there for me, except for my boyfriend. He had school, and I can’t ask him to miss school, but he didn’t seem too concerned with what was happening. My guy friend held on to me the whole time. I didn’t feel alone like I did the day I found out.
I haven’t been the same since that incident with my boyfriend. And many fights have happened that have not helped. He acts bipolar, disrespecting me in one moment and in the next wanting attention. He’s only thought about himself. He’s been manipulative, emotionally abusive, and just not verbal. From my experiences with him and God, I’ve believed he was the one, but I can’t understand how it could be so toxic. And I find myself wanting more and more my friend, which makes me feel like I’m cheating, even if I do not do anything about it. I don’t know if I want my friend altogether, or if I’m just yearning for those qualities in my boyfriend. I’ve contemplated breaking up with him but I don’t know what to do.
I love him but I have to love myself and God more. I can’t give what I don’t feel, and right now I’m not completely sure how to love him. I’ve been put down so much. So I don’t know if God never allowed me to be with my friend – when I had first liked him – because he was going through a phase, put my boyfriend in my life to give me experience and to grow, and to now be ready to be with my friend. Or just anyone in general. I’ve never been so confused and I really need guidance

Jack Wellman January 20, 2016 at 3:56 pm

I would wait right now and not make any decision. Do you have a trusted older Christian woman in the church you attend? Share this with her or your mom if possible. Something tells me by your reluctance you can’t give what you don’t feel so since you’re so unsure, do nothing, wait on God’s timing. You’ll know with almost absolute certainty when that time comes. Read Psalm 37 as it’s about waiting, trusting, resting in God and He will give you the desires of your heart but only if you delight in Him and delighting in Him means living a life of holiness that is pleasing to God.

Betty February 19, 2016 at 4:19 pm

The little I have to say is that I understand your confusion I myself had to stop waiting for a guy to notice me and make our relationship work. The moment I made up my mind to stop waiting and decided to give dating a break altogether my true love came through a dear friend who has been always there for me couldn’t see it at first cos all my efforts were into the guy I liked then. First your boyfriend is not saved, kindly pray for him and try witnessing to him but prayer to soften his heart is key then two kindly let go of him. I don’t know his demands as he’s not a Christian. Is he respecting the Christian code of purity and all that? Please for your own good take a step back take in a deep breath wait on the Lord and make a decision.

Alexandra May 23, 2016 at 11:17 pm

I know I’m a little late to the comments/questions but I have a question. Is there an example of people who did actually date/court in the bible? I’ve been looking everywhere for an example and all I keep finding is guidelines. When I say dating I mean morally not the whole sex before marriage type of dating. My father says that I may date (I will be an adult next year anyway but I do not want to disrespect my father if I do find someone that I think could be a potential husband) if I find an example of it in the bible. He believes that just because he did not date that I do not need to either. I would like to hopefully show him that moral dating is indeed in the bible so that things will be easier if I do find someone to love.

mbinya petronila June 2, 2016 at 11:33 am

im in love with a guy,he is loved by many ladies . he accepts,does sex with whoever he wants,when i get him,he humbles and says will never repeat again…i love this guy very much,he says that loves me also,we are from different tribes,his father dislikes our tribe and he doesn’t know about our relationship.i feel that is Gods choosen because whoever comes on my way i reject him and start thinking about him.we are of the same faith and can lead each other to the kingdom of heaven. im really looking forward to get a person whom we have the same faith and can lead to the kingdom of heaven.this guy can do it we only differ in that tribe which his parents hate and his liking of sex(not faithful to me)and we usually part for some time just because of this issue of sex.i feel that im very much faithful to him and also love him…and i find myself begging him to reconcile and continue with the relationship of which im not the one doing the mistake but i tell him to reconcile…need your prayers and pieces of advice.

Jack Wellman June 2, 2016 at 1:31 pm

Please know that no sexually immoral person is really a Christian and will not be in heaven but hell. Don’t depend on what you feel but trust what God says and all such people like this are headed for the lake of fire (Rev 21:8). Please don’t deceive yourself. Read 1 John chapter 3 to see why this man is no Christian at all. Pray that he is saved. If you marry him and he’s already proven he loves sex outside of marriage, what makes you think he won’t cheat on you? Warning…this man could bring you down with him into sexual immorality. He doesn’t have the fruit of a Christian but of an unsaved man (Gal 5) and we are not to be unequally yoked (or joined) with unbelievers.

Connie November 2, 2016 at 12:23 pm

I’ve been dating this guy for almost 7 years. He has cheated on me several times and I cheated on him. We lived together for about 3 years. We have not lived together for the past two years because I told him I’m want to grow spiritually and I know I have an anointing on my life. We still date but I told him I’m getting older and I want to be married again. He has been saying he’s ready to settle down for 3 years and he just put a ring on layaway about a month ago, on my birthday. I have seen major positive changes in him since we stopped living together, but I don’t know if marriage is really what he wants or he’s just trying to keep someone else from me. He lives about an hour from me with his sister. I am so confused. I don’t know if God is cleaning us up before marriage or if he’s just not the one. I do know that I will be married again. I don’t know if it’s him, my ex-husband(who is married and not happy), or someone else. I just don’t want to run him away if he is the man for me. I prayed and asked God several times if he’s not the man for me, let us depart peacefully. Every time we break up, we end up back together. I’ve been spending the last 3 weeks in church service and the word as much as possible and he is ok with that. I just don’t want to waste time on him if he’s playing with my heart. Because he know that I was sinking financially, and I have to move in with my daughter. I asked him why didn’t he jump in and help me financially if he love me and want to marry me. He said he was not going to pay my rent(which is the biggest bill), if he don’t live there. I going to move in a week but his reasoning has me wondering if he’s just selfish or he really do not love me. I read, pray, and then my mind goes back to him

Jack Wellman November 2, 2016 at 1:08 pm

Have you talked with your pastor about this Connie. You know that living together without being married is sin, but also, this man doesn’t sound stable enough to trust and once you get married, you are stuck for life (unless there is adultery). A bad marriage is much, much worse than no marriage, so be careful. I don’t trust this boyfriend. He doesn’t sound stable, or reliable. If you haven’t talked with your pastor, why not? I would go with this man to counseling together with your boyfriend. He doesn’t sound like he’s truly devoted to you. Talk is cheap. If he moves in promising rent, he could become a deadbeat and really complicate your life.

The lord will never give you more than he can take and that’s proven in the bible

J.S February 4, 2018 at 11:04 pm

I am currently 17 And I have been dating this guy for almost 3 weeks. I don’t know how to tell my parents. My mother is Christian and my father is Chatholic. I am also Christian and so is the person i’ m dating. I don’t know how to brake the news to them and I want to do it before they find out from someone else. I just don’t have the right word to let them know. Any advice?

Pamela Rose Williams February 6, 2018 at 11:59 am

Hello J.S

As a parent myself I can agree with you that they will find out whether or not you tell them. It will be best coming from you and the sooner the better.

Here I want to add one more points related to this Article. i.e. 13- “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” which is I really liked.

Franklyn Oshio IMHOMOH February 21, 2018 at 10:49 am

First I need prayers. I want God intervention in my life. I have three close friends who I can possibly marry. The first one argue and pick annoyance at any little thing. Last December, I decided to give her a break and look else were. I started praying that God should give me her daughter as my wife. One every, on my way coming from work, a thought of a sister I know in school back then just flash into my heart. I starting thinking about her. After a month, I decided to search for her contact number. I got her contact number from her little sister. I told her on the second day my intention to marry her. She told me to give her time to hear from God. In all the three girls, her children faith and her behavior is best. After three weeks, she said she had prayed that the answer is negative. I asked her what she mean, she said that she knows how God always talk to her that the answer she got was negative. I have been sick and confused about my life since last week she told me about it.
I am confused, I want God to help me do that I can marry her. I am 33 years old. I am very lonely. I run for temptation daily. Her name is Mary. I love her. She said it is not about love. That spiritualy, she hear a negative response.
What do I do? The other lady want me too but because of her hot temper, I am kind of scared to marry. I want to marry a lady who will not stress me. Help me.

Jack Wellman February 21, 2018 at 11:00 am

Hello Franklyn. I would stay in the church where you are at and hopefully, there will be a Christian woman attending your church someday. Seek Him first and He will supply all your needs (Matt 6:33). I would not marry if you have doubt because once you’re married, you’re stuck for life unless they commit adultery. No marriage is better than being locked into a bad one for your whole life. Call your pastor. Sit down with him. Tell him your concerns and I am praying for you sir.

Emmanuella April 3, 2019 at 3:22 am

Hi, I don’t know if this comment section is still active but I need your help
I’m currently In a relationship with a guy that’s quite older than me, with about 7years
He’s a Christian but he isn’t so strong, though I pray for him….he’s finding it difficult to abide with my belief of purity cuz he always had sex in his past relationships….. After talking to him, he promised to stop asking for sex and he actually did stop… He cheated in the past with my friend but he apologized and I already forgave him
So I’ve been talking to my relatives and they said he’s manipulating Me and he’s not at best interest… And he’s very concerned about my school and makes sure I excel…..so I’m confused cuz I can see him making efforts but everyone else feel he’s pretending….. The scripture said we should love unconditionally….. Any advice please?, I really hope on getting a reply

Jack Wellman April 3, 2019 at 8:35 am

Hello fr4iend. I would avoid this man. He is not interested in what is best for you but what he can get from you. Stay away I say. There is just too much that sounds like he is ia user.
