A new study on Christian attitudes toward dating and marriage reveals a broad acceptance for cohabitation, premarital sex and a rejection of traditional gender roles. Experts believe that many Christians are following cultural trends over scripture when it comes to sex and marriage.

"Christians are perhaps more influenced by the culture than they are by the teachings of scripture or the church," Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council, told The Christian Post in an interview on Friday.

According to the "2014 State of Dating in America" report published by Christian Mingle and JDate, 61 percent of Christians said they would have sex before marriage. Fifty-six percent said that it's appropriate to move in with someone after dating for a time between six months and two years. Fifty-Nine percent said it doesn't matter who the primary breadwinner of the family is. And 34 percent responded that while it would be nice to marry someone of the same faith, it's not required.

My answer would vary depending on how much weight you have gained. Please include that info and we ll go from there.

My husband did on line stuff and it made me very sad, but we are still married, because I think he was doing that to boost his own ego. He is a weak spiritual person, and I have to love him for other reasons. U just have to access your own situation and what U will loose or gain. A man who does this sort of thing has issues of his own and is a hollow man inside. If he says he does not want a divorce then ask him what he does want out of life? Good luck.

It s not legally considered adultery since he s not actually cheating on you. Have you considered the reason(s) he s looking at porn in the first place? Maybe he looks at porn because that part of his relationship is not being fulfilled with/by you in the bedroom. I can bet that if there was a healthy and regular sexual relationship between you two, his viewing of porn would go down dramatically, and maybe stop all together.. unless he s a porn addict or something. Either way, hopefully you two can find a way to work it out and fix the problem.
