To have an excuse to not be "dating"....yet still routinely boning. A way to subtly deflect impertinent questions with sarcastic humor via archaic terminology without offending the one with whom one bones.
"Dude, I saw you with that girl last weekend. What's up with that?"
"What are you talking about?"
"Are you dating?"
"Nah, we're just courting."

Dating is for fun. Courting is for marriage.

Traditionally Courting would include no sexual activity but today that is not usually followed.

Courting is the experience of developing a deep relationship with someone, with a view to seeing if marriage is right for the couple, without the complexity of sexual intimacy being part of that relationship. Enabling each to find out everything about each other, developing unconditional love and trust, with out rushing things, to decide if this really is the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.
They enjoyed their carefree courting days, long walks in the sunshine, talking, getting to know each other in great depth, enjoying each others company as true friends.
