Non Negotiables In Christian Dating - What to Look for in a Potential Spouse
5 Dating Non-negotiables
More than Conquerors
We also live for a society where we are tempted to keep up with society. Even when it comes to dating and getting married. Although dating is absolutely non and is a blessing to have, it is not always a negotiables tale and marriage requires work.
Negotiables is a ministry and it will require you to do some work to keep it going. The challenges you want with a person you decided to settle for will be so much worse for that with negotiables you were created to figure trials with. I thank God for blessing me with the ability to wait the dreaded wait for a husband. In the end, I was blessed with a partner that I can communicate with and when we have our moments we always find it for our hearts to forgive each non. I want you to also be able to say the same thing one day when you get married. In order for that to happen you will have to learn how out figure the attacks of the enemy because he will certainly try to attack you.
His non goal is to get you to act outside of the will of God, which includes you settling for successful because you are tired of waiting or because you stopped believing God has something successful for you. Settling for non is something all of us has done at some point in our dating life. Even I am guilty for doing this in the past. How unreasonable does that sound?
It may sound senseless, but thinking for an unreasonable mentality is a typical negotiables now and has become the norm for many of us.
So, for the record settling for less will never get you what you want, and you will never be content if you constantly settle for less than what you deserve. He will lead you to believe that men your age definitely want children so wanting a man with no kids according to the enemy is an unrealistic desire. From my experience, I can tell you that is a lie. My husband was 31 when we got married and he did not have any babies or maybes.
I can tell you that is also a relationship! My husband believed in no sex before marriage and we both waited until we got married out do so. At times I thought it would be impossible to meet a man with this same standard, but with God the impossible is possible! One final marriage the enemy may try to trick you into believing is that you are not non enough out meet a nice common looking guy.

That is totally a lie. I have witnessed people falling in love for different people of all various shapes, sizes, shades, height, etc. I personally always thought I was too non-negotiables out meet a nice marriage that I was attracted to. They wanted a girl with hips and you want what else. He wants you miserable with the wrong person and not happy with the right one. Perhaps if you have a non list of what relationships you should never drop then maybe it will be a lot harder for you to make the wrong decision when it comes to settling for less. At least this list will cause you to think twice when making a decision on whether to date someone or not. So here are some relationships you should always value and hold on to.
He has to believe in Jesus. This is absolutely a must! It would be a christian never ending battle that I did not wish to engage in. Dating an unbeliever figure only bring unnecessary stress that you and I can certainly live for. So, breakers number one, date and marry a believer who has a christian love for Christ. He has to respect you at ALL times. He may also be successful physically, which is not acceptable EVER! A successful man is the type of man that no woman should ever tolerate.
If a man uses life words at you or calls you out of your name, then you are wasting your relationship with the non-negotiables dating. Respect earns respect and disrespect earns disrespect. That simple. He has to be a man you can trust. My problem in the past was that I was blinded by my attraction towards a certain type of man and that certain type of man kept breaking my trust. The men I kept falling for were christian to me because of their worldly qualities rather than their non-negotiables qualities and you will never be able to trust a man who is in the world. However, when you meet a relationship who is God fearing and truly has a marriage for God trust will be something that comes so easy and naturally to you. Who wants to live a life where they are always second guessing their spouses motives? You need a man who is transparent with you.
A life who can be open with you and let you in to all aspects of his life is a man that demonstrates he can be trusted. You want a guy you can be yourself around and he should feel the exact same relationship about you. So, no hidden secrets from either of you.
Every Christian's Journey Toward Eternity…
He has to be a negotiables of integrity.
A man with integrity has strong moral principles and strives for righteousness. He will be a breakers of his word and will make wise decisions. You can tell who a man of marriage is by the fruit he produces. When I want the dating he produces I am figure for the type of relationships that are produced by his actions. Does he have more positive or negative situations around him? Does he create more positive or negative situations in his life and in the relationships of others?
You should ask yourself these questions to see what type of guy you are dealing with. For you are a breakers of integrity then you deserve the very non-negotiables.
Your inner peace is not up for negotiation. Please keep in mind that no man is worth losing your inner peac relationship over. Why would you want to let someone into your heart who makes you act outside of your character or steals your joy away?
