I’m currently in college, living in the dorms. However, people are starting to talk about getting apartments for next year and such. I have quite a few friends at school who I’ve known for years who I would be perfectly comfortable living with. However, I just wanted to get some Catholics’ perspective on the possible arrangements that could be made before I commit to living with anyone. I don’t want to sin and I certainly don’t want to be the object of scandal.
So, do you think either of the following possible scenario’s could be sinful?
Living with a few guys and a few girls. Obviously these would all be people I know and trust and there would be no sharing of beds.
Living with a girl. Not a likely scenario, but possible, and if it’s sinful I would definitely like to rule it out. Obviously there would be no sharing of beds or anything of the sort. The only thing I would be worried about in this instance would be scandal, but is that mitigated if we are not dating, etc?
Just want to make a responsible decision, so your opinions are all welcome
