Many years ago, Dear Abby got a letter from a young girl asking if French kissing would make a girl pregnant. Abby responded, no, it won’t, but it might *lead *to a girl’s getting pregnant.
Wow, that was a long time ago!
I think that one should not do with a date anything one would not do in front of a spouse. IOW: one can assume a spouse would not be happy to see you, say, kissing someone else on the lips; holding hands etc. So why would you do those things with someone who is not your spouse? Even if you don’t have a spouse yet, that doesn’t mean that you are therefore permitted to do whatever, esp things that are a near occasion of sin.
*Why *do you think a spouse would be upset about a kiss on the lips? because of what that might lead to. And I think it’s easy to see in this day and age that one thing leads to another pretty easily!!!
Great news Hope this spreads.
