Dating while in aa
First Thessalonians instructs us to “abstain from all appearance of evil” (KJV).
The better choice is to abstain from any action that could endanger one spiritually or give the impression to others of a careless attitude toward marriage.
When a couple is married but separated, the marital relationship is over for all practical purposes.
Since the purpose of dating to find a spouse or to seek companionship with the opposite sex, biblically speaking, a married man or woman is not free to date, even if there is a pending divorce.Technically and legally, such relationships are extra marital affairs.But the morality of each person is very different and personal. You can date married men and women provided you are clear about what you want from the relationship.Most people going through a divorce, even when it is not their fault and even when they have biblical reasons, are usually shattered by the circumstances and not in any frame of mind to be “dating.” People don’t usually make good decisions while “on the rebound.” For a still-hurting divorced person or someone in a painful divorce process to be dating is neither wise nor prudent.The abandoned spouse may indeed be lonely, but making clear-headed, godly relationship decisions in such a situation is difficult, if not impossible.
