Christian dating waiting for marriage
I was once so into my faith and I was happy but since then I have drifted.
I believe in God but somedays that belief is stronger than others.
-Lost It’s hard to imagine you can properly understand how deeply you love each other after 4 months. You need to tell him but be prepared he will likely show some resistance or potentially say “look, that’s not the relationship I want to have, we should break up.” You can’t fault him for this—abstinence is not what he signed up for—but if it does happen it can be tough and cause you to question your morals. The guy he goes church here and there but believes in God.
When we started out I stated I want to wait for marriage but unfortunately it’s happened a few times.
If you trust in Him and listen to what he says about relationships, He will work for your good.
Dating is complicated, tricky, testing and can be a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. Doing it right is flipping hard and requires some serious dedication.
Heartbreak is not impossible for Christians, and the first guy you try to date in a God honouring way might not be the guy, there might not even be a guy (there’s an excellent post on singleness here, sooooo worth checking out), but Relationships are both wonderful and testing, but the best way to do them will always be God’s way, whether we like it or not.
Your relationship with Jesus is ultimately far more important, but dating and marriage is a gift from God and if you listen to and follow what He says about it, it will be worth it!
In fact, I feel able to talk and write about this topic precisely because I have got it wrong so many times and God has consistently shown me grace and turned my mistakes into good.
But again, I’ve done this wrong before, and believe me if you have a non-Christian boyfriend, sticking to this is a whole lot harder, and it causes huge amount of heartache and hurt.
