Short advice/tip to give young people starting out
If I have any advice or tip to give young people starting out then it would be this: Don’t live together OR have sex with each other UNTIL you get married.
This may seem old-fashioned. I don’t care how old fashioned it seems.
Also – as the saying goes – Marry in haste – repent at leisure. So – no marrying in a hurry and expecting the union of marriage to make a relationship “hunky dory”.
Don’t marry quickly, don’t have sex until marriage. Don’t even SLEEP together.
Avoid situations were the temptation to have sex may become too much.
Remain a virgin until your marriage. Yes – wait until you find the right person before you step into a sexual relationship.
These opions may seem old-fashioned and “out of touch” with society. I don’t care how they may seem. Having a long “court-ship” before you take the important decision to stay together is a very sensible idea.
Marriage doesn’t guarantee there won’t be problems in your life. But deciding to make a committment to someone – not blinded by sexual desire – creates a stronger bond between two people.
So – young people – take time to get to know someone – and don’t have sex – it messes with your emotions and can confuse you as to whether you are “in love” or not.
This is a much bigger subject – of course – and I will discuss more on this later.
Have a great Monday – and a great week!
