Dating for separated chrisitans
Dear Andrea, Seven months ago, I became involved with a woman whose husband had abandoned her.At first our relationship revolved around her heartbreak over her husband’s actions. Around noon I received an email that stated this: “I would like to share a few thoughts I’ve had recently.Your family and friend’s approval cannot substitute for God’s and He will never approve of what His Word condemns.On a practical level, it put you at too much risk of investing your heart, time, and money on someone only for her to change her mind and go back to her ex.Could it be that you lack the peace of God’s blessing?Make no mistake, a woman has no moral obligation to take back a man who has cheated upon her unless her own conscience requires it.

I would never insist a woman live with a man that has abused her, but she has that choice.
