Courtship
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Courtship is the period in a couple’s relationship which precedes their engagement and marriage, or establishment of an agreed relationship of a more enduring kind. In courtship, a couple get to know each other and decide if there will be an engagement or other such agreement. A courtship may be an informal and private matter between two people or may be a public affair, or a formal arrangement with family approval. Traditionally, in the case of a formal engagement, it has been perceived that it is the role of a male to actively “court” or “woo” a female, thus encouraging her to understand him and her receptiveness to a proposal of marriage. Within many western societies, these distinct gender roles have lost some of their importance and rigidity.

Courtship may include the couple going out together in public, (often known as dating), for a meal, movie, dance, sports or other social activity. Courtship may also involve private activities which usually include much talking together, perhaps by telephone or by electronic means such as text messages or e-mail. There is often exchange of letters, gifts, flowers and songs.

    A lovely artistic sentiment. I for one hold dear to the ritual of the “love letter”. An art form all its own.

  • SO VERY TRU…THE LOSS OF RITUAL…WHAT EVER ITS FORM IS SOMETIMES HARD TO BEAR…ESPECIALLY AS WE GET OLDER AND PINE AWAY AT ‘THE GOOD OLE DAYS’…;-D
