I pray that this list will help you to address the things our young people wrestle with the most. What questions have you seen recurring as you work with young adults?
What should be done if a husband and wife disagree on tithing / how much to give? What does the Bible say about remarriage if a divorce occurred before salvation? How should a Christian wedding be different from a non-Christian wedding? Why did God allow Solomon to have 1,000 wives and concubines? What does the Bible say about a wife changing her last name at marriage?
Can/should a Christian who is a virgin marry someone who is not a virgin? What should be different about a Christian marriage? What does it mean that a wife is supposed to be a helpmeet / help meet?
[and] Reason #1- People underestimate the difficulties that singles face.
Reason #2- Influencers in the church are not often single. For those of you who haven’t read this blog from the beginning, when I posted Practical ways to improve your desirability and attractiveness to a prospective spouse to boundless nearly 2 years ago it was promptly deleted as too offense. Apparently attraction is not deemed important enough to be talked about by Focus on the Family’s Singles blog for dating and marriage to the point where it is instead deemed offensive.
Sure, some overweight and obese people do get married, but the simple reality is that both men and women want someone who is aesthetically attractive to look at.
It is extremely perilous for Christian women to ignore the fact that the nature of men that God created is to be attracted almost solely to physical appearance.
Where should we, as Christians, stand on gay marriage? What does the Bible say about prenuptial agreements? What does the Bible say about remarriage after the death of your spouse? What should be the response of a Christian whose spouse has had an affair?
If a person divorces and remarries, is it always going to be adulterous? Is it wrong for a married couple to have sex just for pleasure?
I disagree with some of them categorizations as I probably know more about the human body than the author; however, the vast extent of physical appearance is changeable and can be attractive. The general theme that I always talk about is based on the law of the reciprocal.
In other words, become the ideal spouse of your ideal spouse.
If a woman wants to be married and she is not actively seeking to improve her chances through good sleep, nutrition, and exercise she is only sinking her own chances.
