Is dating the best test of compatability?

  1. Sep 7, 2009 #1
    The Western world seems very reliant on "going out" - not just to have a good time, but to test marriageability. Are there better ways (flirting, work, school, religion, dances, parties, cohabitation, etc.) for determining affinity within couples than dating?

    What types of dating itself might be more effective than others? Since when and where have people been dating in the modern sense? How have computers changed the dating scene?

    Probably not until as late as the 30s. People use to get arranged and women had little say in the matter.
