If you've got a question about anything related to singleness or living the single life, please submit it to : There is a question that has been on my mind for some time now.
QUESTION: A younger relative of mine was recently seriously rebuffed by his lady friend (they are both in their 30's) for asking if he could kiss her.
They have been seeing each other very seriously for a while, and he has wanted some indication of her affection for him. HE SAID: Affection within a dating relationship will always be a much disputed and often heated debate.
I know that the Bible only favors this in a marriage.
But what about things like kissing and sharing a bed (with no sexual intercourse)?
If so, check the note at the bottom of this post before you continue reading.But if you are following Christ and therefore care about the fact that the Bible says premarital sex is a sin, and like all sin is simply not the best God has for you, then the question about when to start kissing before marriage becomes more important. What the Bible Says The Bible doesn’t say a whole lot about dating, because dating as we know it is a modern invention.The Bible talks about being single, then engaged, and then married.I ended up going further than I should have physically, which I would later regret.For some people, whose main goal in dating is to have sex as quickly as possible, the question of when to first kiss may seem irrelevant. The question comes up even more when you see people who wait until their wedding to have their first kiss. Is that why the ceremony says, “You may kiss the bride”?
