Godly Girls’ Dating Relationships are NOT Situationships

Through the adolescent years, your girl might have some creative ways to describe her relationships—especially with the opposite sex. Terms like “hanging out” and “more-than-friends” to “dating” might pepper her vernacular. But have you heard this one yet—“situationship”? “Situationship” refers to a casual attraction between a boy and girl but is temporarily rooted with little commitment. Why is this an issue? 

Christians view relationship as a commitment which, if culminating in marriage, is a lifelong covenant. While your girl likely isn’t thinking this long-term, her teen years are a training ground for viewing covenantal commitment in a Godly way rather than a worldly way.  

So, her words about commitment matter in this case! Keep open conversations with your girl during her dating years to ensure she views relationships in wisdom and holiness.
