Yes! Very, Very Matter a lost. Courtship help a lost in a relationship. This really help you to know who really love you from his/her heart. During the courtship, you will know his/her family very well to know the type of people they are, you will know the type of job he/she is doing and you will know how serious he/she is about the relationship. To cut the story short, courtship is very necessary in a relationship especially Christians Relationship.

Courtship may be within 1month to Years depends on distance, family, religiou, job and how they both keep their relationship.

courtship is the cultivation of relationship which will eventually culminate into marriage.In the process of courtship you get to know a lot about one another and you wouldn't have any cause to say had I known when you are in the marriage proper

But ladies nowadays can pretend for long i.e. hide their true colour untill after they're married, thereby rendering coutship before marriage relatively ineffective. I said ladies 'cos it's more prevalent with them.

i think courtship is very important in a relationship becos... this is the time when you know more about eachother, TRY to understand the bad habits and see if you can deal with it on the long run,

but more of all how can you BUY a ride when you can't take it on a spin first.

Oh yes!every couple needs to court before they get married, so they can really know whom they are. I personally think the period of courtship depends largely on the individuals descretion, but i may suggest two years is a good period. But in general, anything short of one year, should be considered as infatuation, not love. And doom is closely iminent

i think i would prefer to stick to the 1-2 yr courtship because it is evident to me that one of the most important ingredients in a good marriage or relationship aside from love is friendship. you don't develop a mutual friendship with someone u meet in 2-3 months. it takes time to build.

like it or not, the thrill of marriage is over within 2 yrs (even shorter for men) and if the courtship period did not involve time to build a mutual trust and friendship btw both parties, it is not unlikely that such a marriage is doomed.

If a woman starts courtship at 22, and after 8 years of being together they decide to break up, she will be 28 and desperately single. For the next courtship, she won't have up to 8 years to make up her mind, because she wil be in a hurry.

So it is best to make your decision as quickly as possible.. 1 to 2 years should be enough. After 6 months to 2 years, you should know whether the person is good enough for you or if you should date or court someone else. It is not how long but how well, and long courtships are simply inefficient for those who don't double-date.

Personally, I am using this time to learn a lot about myself and what I really want in life. Once I know this, and as I interact with female friends, it will become easy for me to tell if a woman is right for me or not. I won't need more than 4-6 months but of course I will still want to wait for 1-2 years before marriage.

5-8 yrs? just to know someone? won't you get bored?

anyway, i agree that courtship is important in a relationship, i would advocate at least 1 yr and at most 2-3yrs before u get married. that way you have a very good idea of who you will be married to forever. and not forgeting that prayer is the most important, pple change overnight!

long distance relationships? perish the idea my friend. it does not work except in a very few cases. how do u sustain a love for someone you never see not minding that u come in contact with potentially better pple everyday around you?

i personally think courtship is important in any relationship....although you never really know your partner 100% even after marriage. duration of courtship depends extensively on both partners if you ask me...although one to two in my view maybe a little too short. i think long period of courtship say 3 to 5 years helps bulid the character of both partners and their interaction with each other.

Long distance relationship are out of the window for me.
