Courtship and the Bible

The Bible says little about courtship because wives were generally chosen by the parents. The nearest to a Bible courtship begins in Genesis 28:1-2 where Isaac told Jacob to go to Padanaram and marry one of his uncle Laban's daughters. "And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Arise, go to Padanaram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban thy mother's brother." (Genesis 28:1-2) The narrative jumps to Genesis 29:1 where Jacob fell head over heels in love with his cousin Rachel. Jacob declared his willingness to work as his uncle's hired hand for seven years for Rachel. When his uncle tricked Jacob into marrying Rachel's older sister, Leah, Jacob agreed to work another seven years to have Rachel (v. 30). That's devotion! That's love!5
