For my single friends

Don't expect the person you date, or the person you hope to marry someday, to be your savior. You only have one savior: Jesus. If you get Jesus confused with Mr./Mrs. Right then you're setting the entire relationship up for huge problems. 

What that means is that you need to fall in love with Jesus first and foremost. Seriously, date Jesus. And let him be your savior. Make Jesus your priority. 

That's the key to a healthy dating and future-married relationship. 

On a related note, I think this is where a lot of marriages run into problems. We expect our spouse to be our savior. This ain't nothin' but old-fashioned idolatry. And idolatry never turns out good in the end.
