Have a godly dating relationship

12 Aug

I would suspect many of the cases with the approximate “once a week” don’t actually do it “once a week” but are rather clustered together around a woman’s ovulation cycle. Not too far off from the regularly quoted divorce statistics.

More interesting is this: We know that sex is commanded by the Scriptures in 1 Cor 7, but headship-submission and love-respect is also commanded.

This is also why vetting for background and character is important.

It’s interesting that lots of the indicators on headship-submission, masculinity, roles of the husband and wife, and sexual frequency all come out to the 40-50% range which actually represents the approximate amount of divorces.

Over 50% of respondents ages 18-24 indicated that their most recent sexual partner was a casual or dating partner.

For all other age groups, the majority of study participants indicated that their most recent sexual partner was a relationship partner.

Newsweek magazine estimates that 15 to 20 percent of couples are in a sexless relationship.[1] Studies show that 10% or less of the married population below age 50 have not had sex in the past year.

These often make up what people refer to as being “in love.” While these things can be great, they will ebb and flow with time.

They are all wonderful things to have in a marriage, but none of them are unconditional.

as “A selfless and enduring commitment of the will to care about benefit another person by righteous, truthful, and compassionate thoughts, words and actions.” Biblical love has no ulterior motive, nor is it a feeling.

It is always thinking of the other person, which in this case is the wife.
