What is an appropriate level of intimacy before marriage? Does the Bible teach that there is a gift of celibacy?
What does the Bible say about interracial marriage? Are we supposed to be actively looking for a spouse, or wait for God to bring a spouse to us? Can I start dating, or do I have to wait until the divorce is final?
It’s a bad situation, and sadly common, but generally preventable if you ask your most recent crush one simple question: When was the last time, prompted by what you read in the Bible, that you repented of sin and changed your behavior? Tweak the wording how you like, but that’s the question in a nutshell. Repentance, then, will always have observable effects of accrued obedience.
This is definitely a question you want to ask the first day you meet. Don’t assume because he goes to church, has a relationship with God, and is a “God fearing man” that it’s understood that he will wait for you. While everything is still rosy, women might ignore the elephant in the room and end up wasting their precious time, or they pay later by being with a man who doesn’t fulfill their needs. A choice that you will have to live with for the rest of your life.Once you have the answers to these questions, you’ll be in a strong position to know exactly what you want in a partner to make you feel comfortable and happy.Before you decide what you’re looking for in a partner, it’s essential to think about your own Christian values.You can start these questions the first day you meet. if a man has good intentions, these questions won’t scare him off. Make sure your mate shares the same values, morals, and beliefs as you.Hopefully, this is someone you can see yourself marrying.
