I was browsing around one time and found Equally Yoked.
This is part of the sacrifice of relationship; there’s no guarantee, but it’s worth the risk.
There’s a difference between “wise risk” and “foolish risk” however.
When you sign a mortgage, you can’t know for sure that you’ll be employed steadily for the next thirty years, but if the numbers work out and the house you’re buying will consume just 20% of your annual income, that’s a reasonable risk.
If your mortgage would consume 40 to 50% of your income, that’s a foolish risk.
When I share things, I want to know that there is more than her own good intentions to keep those things sacred; there is also the conviction of the Holy Spirit.
I declined, saying that I was not in a good frame of mind to be dating again, what with being out of work and all.
Both people are buying a mortgage, but one is being wise while one is being foolish. Everyone has to risk, but there are wise risks and foolish risks.
If things get passionate, I don’t want to rely on my own will-power; I’m comforted by the fact that God could speak to either of us if my own resolve becomes weak.
It’s such a common thing that either you’ve heard of it or are caught up in it yourself! It is the seemingly endless habit many couples have in which they will fight and makeup on a regular basis. It makes for great movies, but what works for a 90-minute Hollywood hit is a no-go in the real world.
What I mean is this: if fighting in your dating world means hitting, pushing, shoving, name calling, yelling, manipulating, or anything rude that occurs on a consistent basis then, of course, turn walk away. In bad relationships, bad things happen and will continue to happen if you let them. Wisdom always does now what brings satisfaction later.

Like the oxen pulling in different directions, a couple who doesn't share a Godly foundation will clash and experience conflict.
