When you keep company with a member of the opposite sex, remember that you are in the presence of God, and pray to Him for strength to preserve your own and your companion’s chastity.

When you seek a spouse for yourself, pray for God’s guidance. Ask Him for a mate who is a believer, and trust that God will hear your prayer.

You have the right to seek as your spouse, only someone who is eligible for marrige; in other words, such a one who is not already married or promised to somone else. See also: When is a divorce permissible?

1 Thess. 4:3-5: For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication, that everyone of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor, not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God.

Prov. 18:22: Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord.

Ps. 6:9: The Lord hath heard my supplication.

Assignment: Consider: Why is it important that your spouse has the same faith as you have? Read Gen. 6:1-8, where the term, “sons of God”, refers to men who are not believers, and the term, “daughters of men”, refers to unbelieving women.
