Today’s Great Mate Debate is from a couple who might be having second thoughts because of their pastor! They are getting married soon and have been going to the church to meet with the Pastor, but recently he told them he doesn’t think they should get married. She says forget that, let’s do it, but he is starting to feel uncertain and thinking that maybe they should hold off for a little.
Slacker and Steve think that it sounds like maybe he isn't fighting for their marriage. Slacker thinks it's weird that they are letting the pastor decide whether or not they should get married. Both Slacker and Steve think that they sound like they are ready for marriage and should in fact get married.
Whose side are you on?
I think that they know themselves best and know whether this marriage will be good for them. It’s important to keep the pastor’s opinion in mind, but at the end of the day this is a decision that they need to make. If it’s right they’ll know.
My name is Chris and I as well am a very religuos Christian man. I commend you on considering the pastors advice as not many people do that any more. It is refreshing to hear two young people who respect each others feelings like you both seem to do. With all of that said, I would first say that outside influences are just to be considered but really it comes down to how you both feel in your hearts. If you both truely love and respect eachother and want to start your life then there is no better time than NOW to start. Life is short and time is very precious. Make the most out of your lives! God Bless
