Sex & relationships

God designed us for relationships. We are created firstly for relationship with Him, but also for relationships with each other - whether family, friends or boyfriend or girlfriend. Some Christians feel called to remain single and stay focused completely on God, while others feel called to romantic relationships and one day to marriage. Either way, relationships can be tricky. 

Sex is a great gift from God. Many Christians believe that it's not just a physical act. It also has a spiritual element, and is designed to take place within marriage, creating a lasting bond between two people. Not everybody reads the Bible verses about relationships in this way but one thing is for sure - God can help us with pain or hurt or regrets when it comes to sex, as he cares about us and what we do with our bodies.
