Pastor Jim provides advice regarding widows and dating.
Dear Jim: I AM A RECENT WIDOW AND WANT TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC DATING ADVICE FOR ME?
I am pleased at the “peace” you have regarding your husband and his presence with our Lord. While it does not remove many of the things you are learning to deal with, it is a great gift.
Before you entertain dating, I do have some suggestions for you. Allow me to share them as points below for your consideration.
Pastor Jim provides advice on the topic of cohabitation before marriage, providing both biblical and non-biblical reasoning.
Dear Jim: WHAT IS WRONG WITH LIVING TOGETHER BEFORE WE GET MARRIED?
Demos have become a way of life in most parts of the world. We would not buy a car before we drove it and ‘checked it out’ – nor a television and even a piece of clothing. So many singles come from painful past experiences and they want ‘to be sure’ that they do not experience this again. The logic often develops that if this is true for other less important things, then a ‘test’ drive before marriage would certainly be in order.
Some jump into online dating thinking that they’ll get instant ‘success’. Yes, that sometimes happens, but for many that’s likely not the case.
Happy 4th of July to our American friends! Share this article:
