What do you think?  Do you think it’s a problem to act like you’re married when you’re not?  Even if you’re dating?

I guess this question is tied to the question of whether you will regret how much of your heart (physically/emotionally/spiritually) you’ve given to the person you’re dating if you ever break up and end up being married to someone else.

What do you think?  Is this a legitimate, inescapable fact that all dating couples need to keep in mind?  Or is it actually no big deal – that it’s just a natural part of getting to know different people on the journey to finding/developing your spouse?

Feel free to be as theoretical or as specific in your ponderings/thoughts as you want.
