Sex Series: Waiting While Dating
To have a God-centered dating relationship, find a partner who values their relationship with God as much as you do, so you can be sure God will be central in your relationship. Only date someone if you view them as a potential life-long partner to help you find your soul mate quicker. When you start dating, avoid being physically intimate with each other until marriage, so you stay true to God. Instead, spend time praying together and reading scripture, as well as other fun activities, to strengthen your relationship with God and with each other. You should also spend time with other Godly couples, which will help you stay in touch with your values while having fun.
Summer is finally, officially, Memorial-Day-weekend here. Part of that is trying your best to stay sexually pure when your biggest impulse is to rip off your clothes and jump in bed together.

I have included links to the other articles after this post for you to research and incorporate.

Recently Melanie asked the moms in a private group on Facebook what they wish they had known about marriage before they were married. They spoke about how hard it was to trust their husbands.
Because ethnicity is part of the good of creation, we seek to honor and celebrate the ethnic identity of those with whom we serve as well as those we seek to reach. This means you should initiate the conversation very early in the relationship. You should also be in a position of knowing what type of physical contact is appropriate and what is not.

Thank you so much for sharing this! I have wondered occasionally what that time would be like between the engagement and my wedding day. I do have a question though? If you and your husband did spend any time alone while you were engaged how was that time spent? Did you go out to dinner, or to the movies, date type stuff? Or did you decided to do things in groups only? Sincerely, Mekenna E.
Dating couples need a game plan: a set of ideas, attitudes and actions that will help them glorify God and safeguard their relationship from premarital sex. When I typed out these words as an idea for an article on abstinence, I realized this was a difficult topic to get people talking about. When I asked my peers to share their stories, few were virgins with no sexual history, and even fewer wanted to talk about it. Recounting my own sin made me feel like the chief of hypocrites. Yet, at the same time, I knew couples who did it right. They met, fell in love, dated and waited until they were married to have sex.
