ok, so me and my gf have been together for over 2 years and latly after reading the bible and listening to the church’s teaching on chastity. I came to the conclusion that some of the stuff that we’ve been doing together hasn’t been the most chaste. we’re both virgins and wern’t planning on having sex anytime soon. But we have engaged in some “below the waist (on top of clothing)activity”. So I told my gf how i felt about it and eventhough it is gonna be hard, that this is the best descision both morally and in the best interests of our relationship. She told me that she still loves me and that she totally respects my feelings but that it just kinda came out of nowhere and she knows that it is a big deal. She got pretty emotional about it but agrees that we can work it out.
In all honesty though, I’m scared. I don’t want this change to ruin what we have but I know that my ultimate alliegence is to Jesus Christ. I don’t want to break up and neither does my gf but we both understand that our realtionship is going to change. Do you have any advice for us?
