11 Types of People You should Be Careful Dating (or Marrying)

Selecting a future spouse is about finding love. True, but that’s not all. There’s also the question of having a set of criteria (based on one’s values, standards, and expectations) by which to discern who would be ‘right’ for us.

The Two Groups of People in John 11:25-26
