There is no courtship without intentionality and commitment. If you are not ready to truly commit to a lasting relationship, you are not ready to court. While in dating, a person may string you along for years with empty promises and no assurance, courtship requires true commitment from each person. Commitment in courtship is your dedication, faithfulness, and loyalty to the decision that you have made to the other person.
Proper courtship fortifies trust, relieves insecurities, and focuses attention on serving each other. Courtship stands guard over the relationship and protects the heart and the vulnerabilities of your mate. The security creates a safe environment through consistency which allows the couple to genuinely get to know one another.
Accountability is the obligation or willingness to accept responsibility for one’s actions. For accountability in a relationship to work, both partners must be vulnerable, honest, trusting, and transparent. In courtship, there are two forms of accountability, external and internal. External: This is typically established between close friends, mentors, or spiritual leaders. Internal: This is the most important accountability relationship to establish between the courting couple.
