I don't really get your posts. Maybe someone else can clue me in. Test driving a future spouse is NOT an option for a Christian. Therefore, any "incompatibility" after marriage is irrelevant as far as whether or not the relationship should remain intact.

When you get married, you have to work at BEING compatible with your spouse. It doesn't magically happen. Making things work out...*ahem*...happily for everyone takes effort and a lack of selfishness, among other things.

IMO, "incompatibility" is often code for "I'm too selfish and lazy to do what it takes to make this a good relationship."

The term 'trying out" is actually not a good one for the point I am on. I dont mean the actuall act of "driving" the car but you will at the very least have a discussion with the salesperson concerning the feature, benefits options etc....!!! Before you buy!!!! How would you have felt if your first Christmas gift from the new hubby was whips and chains??

Dewd! I'm not proud of it, I just thought it was kinda funny that some people assume that getting married young means that you were waiting. I'm not proud of it, but I've had a long time to get over the "hanging my head in shame" that came along with it.

Where you a UPCI church kid when that happened?
It could be a cop out, I dunno. I prefer a legal marriage license.

And yes, I was 15. Raised UPCI.

BTW Berkley - I do believe sex before marriage is a sin. It's a sin I've committed and believe I've been forgiven for.
