When God gave the Israelites an exodus opportunity, they took it. If your relationship is even slightly abusive, consider this your sign to exit the relationship NOW!
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? Therefore honor God with your bodies.” I Corinthians -20 …you are living together.
Don’t disobey God and wait patiently for the Lord.3.
It’s perfectly healthy to forgive, but it’s not OK to be unwise.

…you doubt the person you are dating is “the one” you are meant to marry and fear keeps you from breaking off the relationship. Draper wrote, “Doubt never means yes and always means no or wait a while: God does not lead through doubt. Don’t go so far as justifying staying in a relationship you’ll wish you had abandoned later.
If you can’t get peace, that is an answer.” When God opens the door for marriage in your life, you will know that you know you are with the right person. Here’s why: in the dating world, thoughts like, “I can’t break up because…,” mean that doubt has given the keys to fear which will drive you down a rough road containing potholes of confusion and bumps of anxiety. When it comes to making up, don’t misunderstand me. It’s such a common thing that either you’ve heard of it or are caught up in it yourself! It is the seemingly endless habit many couples have in which they will fight and makeup on a regular basis. It makes for great movies, but what works for a 90-minute Hollywood hit is a no-go in the real world.What I mean is this: if fighting in your dating world means hitting, pushing, shoving, name calling, yelling, manipulating, or anything rude that occurs on a consistent basis then, of course, turn walk away. In bad relationships, bad things happen and will continue to happen if you let them. Wisdom always does now what brings satisfaction later.For you, being smart means that after you leave the relationship you shouldn’t go back!This article was co-authored by our trained team of editors and researchers who validated it for accuracy and comprehensiveness.
