I know I shouldn’t be asking how far is too far, but I would really appreciate some guidelines of what people think is acceptable to help me remain pure and away from sin. I have been best friends with my boyfriend for one year and we have been dating for just over half a year…we kiss and cuddle and would never ever have sex before marriage. We talk about marriage all the time and have plans to marry after college. What are some good guidelines for seniors in high school who are in a serious, committed relationship with God at the center. I love showing my boyfriend love and affection, but I would never want that to get in the way of our relationships with God. Thank you 🙂

This is really mature of you! Asking for help coming up with boundaries is a wise move. Obviously, it is important not to put yourself in a situation where you would want to break the no sex before marriage rule. I would say that staying out of the bedroom would be smart and also making sure that when you are alone, you aren’t in a setting where you possibly could be tempted to have sex. Even planning to get married can be an invitation to cheat on your resolve. But here is the thing, if you have sex before marriage, it is like robbing a bank just to put the money in your account at the same bank. You need to be wise about the situations you put yourself in. Think things through and be smart.

I agree with everything cayenne said.
And keep in mind, if you have to ask yourself “am I going too far?” then you’re probably going to far. I don’t think it’s the same for everyone, for example, intimate hugging could be fine for some people but cause other people to want to go farer like touching/grabbing. I believe that God will let you know how far is too far.
