Topic: Explain why dating is not an effective method for screening out future divorces especially those that take place early in marriage

Dating is not an effective method for screening out future divorces because dating involves getting intimate with someone without there being any commitment. Usually many people enter a dating relationship with no real intention of committing. They are those who would rather have the nice temporary pleasures that an artificial intimacy can give them without having the security of commitment (Olson, D. & DeFrain, pg. 275). Dating often mistakes a physical relationship for love (Olson, D. & DeFrain, pg. 275). Many people often try to define love and limit it to something we can touch, sense, or feel. True love and intimacy, on the other hand, involves much more than a mere physical connection. Genuine love involves connection on several levels which are emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual. Dating also tends to skip the friendship stage and heads straight into the romance part, thus bypassing true intimacy (Olson, D. & DeFrain, pg. 275). In addition, if dating consist of more physical contact rather than meaningful conversations, then that is a weak premise for building a satisfying, meaningful relationship that will have any good chance of surviving.
