What should I do if I cannot decide who I should be dating?
Can you give me some Christian relationship advice?
From the outside it seems like today’s commitment-phobic millennials have no interest in settling down, but there’s one sub-group of young people who tying the knot younger than most: Christians.
To say or believe that another person is “everything” or the most important thing in one’s life is idolatry, which is sin (Galatians ; Colossians 3:5).
Also, we are not to defile our bodies by having premarital sex (1 Corinthians 6:9, 13; 2 Timothy ).
And even if you don’t just want to hook-up, sex is an important part of a relationship for the majority of non-religious people.
22-year-old Jack* is not strictly religious but found himself in a tricky situation when the girl he was dating didn’t reveal that she was Christian until they’d been seeing each other for a few weeks: “Only when things started to get more heated in the bedroom did she decide to tell me her beliefs and why she wouldn’t be going any further,” he says. “I really liked her and didn’t understand why she was waiting until marriage,” he explains.
