What is the difference between a wedding and a marriage?
In a wedding a promise is being made. In a marriage a promise is being kept. As the wedding goes, so goes the marriage. But a wedding does not happen in isolation. A successful wedding begins with a cooperative engagement, which depends on a healthy courtship and dating relationship, which is only possible when both parties came into it as independently whole singles. In other words, a successful single life will lead to healthy dating relationships which are vital to building a better marriage. The foundation of a lasting love begins with a successful single life. Everything you do and every relationship you have from singlehood to dating is a prelude to the promise.
