Ron: Don’t rely on your judgment. Pray.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: A dating couple in their early 40’s with a total of five kids shared their dilemma with me. “Ron, we want to talk about getting married, but some of our kids are opposed to it. What do we do?”

I said, my book Dating and the Single Parent discusses this, but I don’t know specifically what the answer is for you. I do know getting married when a child—of any age—is strongly against it, is a bad idea. I also know that extended dating makes managing sexual tension challenging. Ultimately, you’re caught between your desire for a spouse and what creates a safe environment for your kids. And that’s why you must pray. And pray. And pray. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
