Dating tips before marriage
I lived with my boyfriend for two years before we got married.I knew I was breaking my parents’ hearts, as well as my Heavenly Father’s heart!You don’t see the person as a whole…you see the perfect wedding night/pure marriage you’ll never be able to have if you stay with them. How they treat you, who they are, and how much you enjoy them should be hugely important factors. Some of those other qualities can be even more rare than virginity. But given that the rest of the world is full of one night stands, casual sex, and “hook up culture”, maybe the fact that your girlfriend/boyfriend has only had sex with one other person in the context of a long term relationship (or whatever) isn’t so bad.. Appreciate that in the grand scheme of things, your girlfriend/boyfriend may be much closer to your sincere, genuine idea of sexuality than he/she is to those “other” people’s warped and soulless view of sex.Maybe they had sex before with one person but only a couple of times.In a way, it feels like they cheated on you (and you can’t get it out of your head).Unfortunately for them, they didn’t cheat on you, but they get treated as if they did.____________________________________________________________ Did you find this post helpful?Click to subscribe by email or feed reader so that you don’t miss any future posts.
God is a loving God, and he gives us his commands for our protection.
Sometimes the more you want a person, the more their sexual past bothers you.
As the one who’s waiting for sex (doing the noble thing), the fact that your girlfriend/boyfriend has had sex before with one or more people may start to really piss you off.
My boyfriend was not a Christian, but I figured I could change him if we moved in together.
The “this-is-yours, that-is-mine” mentality that enabled us to “successfully” live together completely unraveled once we got married.
