Christian dating your best friend

You were betrothed to someone from a young age and you married them.

And there is only one verse in the BIble that gives recommendations to this small group of people - widows.

1 Corinthians A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives.

It’s a question every single person of a certain age has asked themselves about their platonic best friend — should we just date each other?

In the case of Amanda Mc Mullan, 28, and her childhood best friend Christian, 29, they decided to take the plunge and not just start dating, but jump straight to marriage.

“There’d always been flirtation, sexual tension,” she says.

I’ve previously dated him but ended it because I came to the realisation that I should be in a relationship with a christian. So if at any point it feels like I don’t really understand your situation, you’re probably right, but I do think I can say something helpful nonetheless.

So, what strategies can you follow to avoid the horrible life of being married to a non-Christian.

(I’m not in your situation, so I can’t tell you which one is best for you - you may be too close to the situation as well, you may need to ask someone you trust and who is spiritually mature, maybe a pastor or a Bible study leader, for their advice) 1. You may find that your feelings are just too strong for you to trust yourself with this guy.

“It was really wonderful but also so awkward,” Mc Mullan says.
