This doesn’t mean you have to be ruined by every breakup, but there should be a sense that this isn’t right — it’s not how it’s supposed to be. God needs to show some of us the gravity of failed relationships because of what they wrongly suggest about him and his love for the church.Knowing and embracing God’s design for permanence in marriage and dating will help us feel appropriately, but it will also help us take healthy next steps in our pursuit of marriage.Sometimes the best thing you can do for your future spouse is to not date.If your history looks serial, you might need to break up with dating for a while. Now, you’re back at square one in the quest for marriage, and it feels lonelier than square one, and further from the altar, because of all you’ve spent and lost.No one begins dating someone hoping to break it off someday.The hard-to-believe, but beautiful truth is that broken-up you a better you.
You feel like damaged goods, like you’ve been ruined in God’s eyes or in the eyes of others.God didn’t take a break from loving you in your breakup — even if you’re the reason it’s over. There’s a unique shame and brokenness associated with breakups.Relationships and love may be celebrated more in the church than anywhere else because we (rightly) love marriage so much.Maybe you were convinced it needed to end, but knew how hard it would be to tell them. Dating that dives in too quickly or dumps too carelessly does not reflect God’s intention.This doesn’t mean every dating relationship should end in marriage, but it does mean breakups will hurt.
