We live in a time where pop culture, media, and entertainment have been given precedence in establishing the mores of our culture. With this thought in mind Dating: Dress Rehearsal For Divorce takes a closer look at one of these aspects-dating. The idea behind a dress rehearsal is to practice and perfect what will be done once the cameras are rolling. It is to prepare in advance for the real production; and how you practice is likely how you will perform. However in the real life drama of marriage when the cameras are gone, make up is removed and the lights are off two people are left to actually deal with real life, love and circumstances. The stage of life, and marriage, is more than a mere production; again like a dress rehearsal how you practice it is likely how you will perform (live) it. If two are not properly prepared, or familiar with how each one will play their role the results may be something less than an encore performance.
Through the years we have seen many scenarios when doing pastoral pre-marriage, and marriage, counseling. Therefore we desire to encourage you with practical wisdom to prepare and lay a foundation for the role you want to play in life. We invite you on a journey that is both challenging and rewarding by comparing traditional dating verses courting, and taking a closer look at where love and intimacy find their place in the middle of it all. By taking a closer look at the prepackaged paradigm of dating you decide how your story will play out.
