Difference between courtship and dating
What is the difference between courtship and dating?
Is the only difference that dating is casual and courtship is exclusive with movement towards engagement?
The aim of the dating varies from partner to partner.
When two people “date”, they engage in pleasing activities to get to know each other better.
Such as going out to watch movies, dinners, walks and so on.
Courtship, on the other hand, absolutely does have marriage in mind.
To say that you are courting someone or are in a courtship is basically to say “I am moving toward potential marriage with this person, and we shall see how it goes.” It also absolutely implies exclusivity with the person.
