This comes out of two conversations. One Christian has been going out with a non-Christian, and has been harshly criticised by his Christian friends for what they see as a completely wrong relationship. Another Christian has struggled with both her own singleness and the way singles can be overlooked by Christians. In this paper I’ve drawn together some of these issues and questions, based around the idea of two marriages and a reading of 1 Corinthians 7. There’s stuff in here for everyone: singles, marrieds and everyone in between.
