Hi George,

I have to agree with Chris. My personal opinion is if they going to be together, living together, sharing a bed together, it seems this is a relationship whether intimate or not no matter what age they are. It might not only hurt your witnessing going forward but also puts a stain on your past testimonies. Marriage may be considered.

The scenario you present falls into that 'grey' area of Christian living according to the Word. The Bible doesn't specifically speak about it, yet our consciences & good sense require us to examine that 'platonic' relationship. It could also apply to younger people who determine that no physical act would take place during their residence together in the same house or even the same bed.

But is it just a situation of clean living before God, or does this apply before others? Or, how do other people (both believers & unbelievers) perceive this life choice? Is it then a case of 'who cares what people think as long as I'm living correctly before God?'

1 Thessalonians 5:32 tells us to "Abstain from all appearance of evil." Even though within the house, nothing is 'out of order', but can that relationship be misconstrued as inconsistent with godly living? Is our testimony shaken or destroyed because of it? Is it a big issue to have that love that is shared with each other ratified by a simple Registry Wedding, so no one is left in doubt & there be no 'behind the back small talk' against you? Though marrying at that age might bring on other comments of which one should have no concern.

So this lifestyle really comes down to a personal decision as a Christian, but where all the issues are carefully considered & no opportunity for sin, or the appearance of it, exists before God & man. Others here might have other views to share on this.
