Long Term Boyfriend-Girlfriend Relationships
Do you believe that it is not wise to have a long term of “boyfriend-girlfriend” relationship? What advices you can give to men that is in this season?
I think Paul answered your question. He commanded men to stay pure and holy and one of the challenges of a long term relationship is that the temptations tends to get really hard.
1 Corinthians 7:8-9 8 Now to the unmarriedand the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do. 9 But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.
If you can control it, then I see no problem but if the passion is burning, make a game plan already on when to settle down and marry. Pre-marital sex would be a very bad game plan though.
In terms of long term relationships because you are unsure if you are ready, then reassess why you are in a relationship when in the first place you are not ready.
