I have never heard of it and have studied theology and know a fair amount about most protestant denominations, it is not a presbyterian, evangelical or baptist practice, I am sure it is not catholic CofE or methodist either
most more evangelical christians that are strong on the no-sex before marriage do believe in living and sleeping together immediately after marriage and in fact counsel a short period entirely alone together( whether honeymoon or at home) not seeing other family friends etc
Hope someone can help me understand something I was told recently.
I had a conversation with a woman who had been married for several weeks. She said she was not living with her new husband but would be soon. The reason for not living with her husband was that she didn't really know him that well and in her religion she wasn't allowed to live with her husband until she did know him well enough. He had been supporting her financially from the date of the marriage though.
I speak with a wide variety of people and accept that there are many and various ways to live ones life. But I admit that this time I was a bit flummoxed when the woman went on to say that the religion was Christianity.
Can anyone enlighten me about what branch of Christianity has these rulings.This purely for my own education.
The woman was English as was her husband if that's any help .
Before anyone asks -no I didn't question her further as it really isn't any of my business,I wouldn't be so rude and was nothing to do with our original reason for speaking .
