In Singapore, the average age for marriage is between 27-30 years old.
Hence, someone in his/her mid-teens who start dating will have to expect a long courtship of a decade or more, which may not be healthy.
" Your question sounds very much like"how far can we go? Unfortunately, while we would like a definitive answer, the bible doesn’t lay down a set of hard and fast specific boundaries, but rather gives a set of ‘principles’ for relationships.
With these ‘principles’ we must then work out how to apply them in our situation.
But before we look at some of the principles, it is worth noting that God is not a kill-joy.
In fact, his desire is that we live life to the full!
but no where in the bible i find is there a mention of relationships and boundaries cause ultimatley back then they didnt date but girls where promsied to men for marriage ...
so i was wondering what boundaries should we set in order for us to stray away from temtation, sin and that in our relationship so that it is pleaseing to God and also what can we do to strengthen our relationship in a Godly way were we are encouraging each other and building each other in our relationships with God ???

Be patient and wait for the seasons for life to naturally develop as God intends them to be.

Do not be surprised or ashamed, but caution is required here as well.
Courtship may be defined as a mutual commitment made between a man and a woman to meet regularly for the purpose of knowing each other better and seeking God's will with the aim of marriage one day if it is His divine will.
