Dating the divorced
Sadly, when Sharon's relationships don't work out, not only is her heart broken, but so is her son's.
Scripture warns believers to "guard your heart" (Proverbs ).
But John knows better because he's still married, and dating now would go against God's desires.
Be aware that when you commit to remain celibate until you remarry, there may be some people who will try to convince you that you are being unreasonable. Instead, run the other direction and resolve to date only fellow believers who share your convictions.The Bible is clear about this: Maintaining your sexual integrity is not optional; neither is getting romantically involved with someone who doesn't share your faith (2 Cor. Above all, God wants to come first in all you do (Matthew ). During that time, several men have come and gone from her life.And each new boyfriend has developed a relationship with Sharon's son, Branden.This spares his children from the complicated emotions that will inevitably come with adjusting to a new stepparent prematurely.After experiencing the comforts of marriage, it can be tempting to settle for less than God's best.
