How can a Christian be a partner with one who doesn't believe?
Healthy interactions with others will leave us with little regrets, no matter what the long term outcomes.
All over Scripture we are reminded of the meaning of a physical relationship within the context of a committed marriage (Hebrews 13:4, Song of Solomon 8:4).
God’s word reminds us of the need for us to throw off the old baggage of sin, bad habits, and hang-ups – and to become new each and every single day (Ephesians -24).
Becoming more like Christ sets us up for interactions with others that reflect love, healing, and wholeness.

Type the word “dating” into your bible search tool and what comes up? When I was single, I remember wishing there was an entire book of the bible dedicated to the topic, or at least even a chapter.
The truth about relationships is that the healthier both individuals are emotionally and spiritually, the healthier the relationship will be.
Apply this truth to dating by connecting with people who are on the same page as you are spiritually and emotionally.
The modern-day concept of “dating” looked far different 2,000 years ago.
The process of meeting a spouse had very little to do with compatibility and personality traits, and everything to do with family lineage and economic status.
No matter where we are or who we are with, above all else we are called to reflect God’s love, encouraging and uplifting those around us (1 Thessalonians ).
