Any advice or help you can give would be much appreciated!
), using romantic attachment in an attempt to change the faith of those they’re dating is certainly a wrong application of this passage. Christians who emotionally manipulate Mormons for the purpose of conversion place their integrity in a precarious situation.
Why should the Mormon seriously consider following the Bible when the Christian obviously is not heeding its admonition?
Often this results in a compromise with the children dividing their attendance between two different churches that profess major doctrinal differences. If dating is considered a possible precursor to marriage, then it makes sense to set the standards high at these beginning levels.
Of course, it’s not a given that a dating couple will eventually marry.
However, is it more likely that a person will marry someone he or she has never dated?

As hard as it will be to do, ______________, I am going to suggest that you break up this relationship.

That’s unofficial, but I’m sure it’s pretty accurate in the overall scheme of things. One, please watch the three You Tube videos I list below.You have the missionaries come over and try to convince you.
