I thought the answer to this question was fairly straight forward. My friend, Pete Ko, wrote a great blog post a week ago with a really well thought out answer. The thing I’ve been surprised by is how negative some of the comments have been in response to his post.
I think it’s incredibly unwise for unmarried Christian couples to holiday alone together and I would strongly advise against it. Pete agrees. Here are the reasons he proposes:
- Don’t trust yourselves.
- God doesn’t want us just to be minimalists in obedience.
- We are called as Christians to be above reproach.
- You can wait. You really can.
- Fight the idol of pleasure at any cost.

Christian? Planning a trip with your gf/bf? Perhaps think again…
