How long dating before marriage
Translated this verse means: No one person should be without a partner – and neither of them without God’s presence. Something is always left to the magic of the world around us.
However you get there, I wish you luck and joy in your journey.
Similarly, a woman must agree before marriage can take place.
Though addressing a very different social reality than ours, the principle remains true: according to Jewish law one is not allowed to marry someone without making sure they are compatible.
There are those who will only date when they are “of marriageable age” and will only date for the expressed purpose of finding a spouse.
Others find much value in “casual” dating even if marriage is far from their mind.
However, many in the Jewish community are partnering and having children later life for a variety of reasons, and may take longer to date and find a partner.
The very notion of “dating” has different connotations in different communities.Jewish tradition varies widely in practice and purpose of courtship.In some communities it is common to marry quite young.There is no set amount of time that it takes to answer these questions for oneself, and thus there is no timeframe or official Jewish position on how long one should date.There is, however, a preference that people not drag their feet and once they know that have found “the one” that they get married as soon as possible.
