Dating with god
When a couple breaks up after having had sexual relations, there is inevitable pain because of the severing of this bond.
To ease that pain, the young man and woman typically move quickly to establish a similar relationship with a new partner-repeating the same mistake.
A thorough understanding of God’s standards for dating and marriage is one of the greatest blessings children can receive from their parents.
Some people, however, are far past that point, having already reached adulthood, married and divorced. Because adults are older, does that give them license for more liberties than adolescents may take? The Bible teaches that God’s standards for dating apply to people of all ages.
Many assume that when people are dating, sexual intercourse is an appropriate demonstration of affection and a way to determine whether they are compatible.
They believe that sex is simply a natural expression of love between two people and therefore the normal thing to do when individuals are “going together” or living together in an exclusive relationship.
The sexual act creates an emotional bond between a man and a woman.God said, “It is not good that man should be alone” (Genesis for us!Marriages are not only a basis for happiness, they offer us longer and better-quality lives.As people move on to one sexual relationship after another, not only do they have to deal with the pain of these broken bonds, they establish the habit of short-term sexual relationships-a way of thinking that is more often than not carried over into marriage.
No wonder those who have sex prior to marriage have more divorces than those who don’t.
Teaching young people proper behavior for dating is obviously ideal. He does not have two sets of guidelines, one for adults and one for youth.
