I love my boyfriend very much. We have been best friends for over a year, and we talk about marriage and staying pure all the time. We have to wait until after college though until we can get married. We have been getting more intense recently with cuddling and kissing. We would never have sex before marriage, but I think dating prompts thoughts of lust, and we have to wait a long time (at least 5 years) until we can get married. Should we take a break this summer to eliminate some thoughts of lust? We love each other very much and are very devoted to God and each other.
I think its great that you guys have such a great relationship so devoted to God. I think that you should pray about it together and see what God thinks. It isn’t always easy to hear what He has to say, but I know that He knows what is best for you because He has a plan for your relationship. And maybe you don’t need a break in order to sort of regroup and continue to focus your relationship to God and God’s love; if you ask God to help you guys, you can work on it together. I’ll be praying for you guys! 🙂 Jesus loves you 🙂
