25 Bible Verses About Relationships With Girlfriend
Today we will be dealing with 25 Bible verses about relationships with girlfriends. Is it right for a Christian brother to have a girlfriend? If a Christian brother must have a girlfriend is it nice to date a lady from the outside? What are the things a Christian brother must watch out for when considering having a girlfriend? If any of these questions were important and you will want to find answers to them, we have compiled a list of 25 bible verses about relationships with girlfriends to help you find a better understanding.
One thing is clear, God adores relationships. And having a girlfriend is never a crime in the Christian body. However, the purpose of every relationship must be hinged on marriage. It is only sad to see that the standard has changed. Men no longer go into marriage with the interest of getting married. Some Christian brothers are just following a bandwagon. They are in a relationship just because other brothers like them already have a girlfriend. Meanwhile, when the purpose of something is unknown, abuse is inevitable. First, the purpose of the relationship with your girlfriend must be properly defined taking into consideration the laws of God.
The relationship should not and must not be used as a yardstick to have sex outside wedlock. Any sexual activities outside marriage are considered fornication and God detests that deeply. These bible verses will give us a better understanding of how a relationship with a girlfriend must be and things that should and should not be done within the confines of the relationship.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

Her feet go down to death; her steps follow the path to Sheol;
