Caution should be exercised in taking a single bible story or even a few to answer our questions. I, personally, wouldn't begin my 'finding a husband/ wife' with the story you mention. Or for example with the book of Hosea!
Many Christians I know went about dating and marriage, no different to people who were unbelievers. At the other end of the scale some date and are so strict it's like Victorian times. We all have to read scripture and ask the Spirit to guide us.
Some ways to approach dating/ marriage will be clearly biblically wrong, many will be personal opinion. Seek God in this area and a big part of that will be reading the whole bible and praying. SofTy.
1 Corinthians 1:12-13 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos: and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptised in the name of Paul?
May the power of the Spirit of our God unite us. SofTy.
