Encouraging scripture for dating couples

My husband and I started dating when we were 16-years-old.We were just two kids going into their junior year of high school, who didn’t really know anything about love or relationships.We’re both young, working, and in school—arm-in-arm, working toward our goals.It’s not easy; in fact, it’s harder, and more stressful than we ever would have imagined. I can’t wait to look back 10, 20, 30, years from now, and see all we’ve fought through together.We did our best to keep God at the center of our relationship, and we trusted Him with the rest.For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe. Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.

One month after graduating high school, we got engaged, and set our wedding date for a year later.My husband proposed with a ring that had this life verse inscribed on the inside. Understanding that two are better than one, but that two with God is even stronger has saved our marriage multiple times!
