Within that struggle, inevitably the question comes up: Can a Christian date a non-Christian?The Bible addresses the hardships that come with marrying a nonbeliever, so that’s rather clear.Based on Christ's statement, when people (male or female) actively think about having sex with another person who they are not married to it is always sin, even when they do not actually commit the act.

It can easily be a sexually charged "warm-up" that prepares for consummation even when the couple ultimately avoids going that far.There are many gradations in-between these two extremes, and it is possible that what is sinful for one person will not be for another, depending on their thought processes.Furthermore, sustained kissing is considered foreplay as preparation for physical intercourse.While many start off with intentions of finding a godly partner, with each passing year the waiting feels longer and the hoping gets harder.Slowly, we can find ourselves starting to second-guess our original standards, wondering if we’ve been too extreme or unrealistic.If a dating relationship breaks up, and they marry someone else down the line, what kind of memories do they have when they show affection to their future wives and husbands?
