In an interview with The Christian Post, two Christian Millennials share their diverse stories on faith, sex and marriage, and explain why many singles are battling against the "purity culture" of their youth.

But while in college, Lindsey "gave her heart to Christ." There, for the first time, she became convicted that premarital sex is wrong.
But despite this realization, after Lindsey moved to New York, she did not abide by this new sexual ethic.
For Lindsey, her behavior was not simply a result of her conforming to the sexual values of her non-Christian peers.
I would think many Christian single women in the market for a husband would be interested in knowing the number of Christian men hoping to find a Christian wife.A majority of single Christians are rejecting biblical doctrine by choosing to have sex before they are married.Sixty-one percent of self-identified Christian singles who answered a recent Christian Mingle survey said they are willing to have casual sex without being in love, while only 11 percent said they are waiting to have sex until they are married.For example, in 1 Corinthians Paul writes, “Are you unmarried? But if you do marry, you have not sinned…” Although there is no “how to find a wife” playbook in the Scriptures, you will find general advice on topics such as waiting on the Lord, that would be applicable in your search to find a Christian wife.Bible Verse of Day Dear Father, we pray for my dear brothers in Christ who are seeking a suitable helpmate.
There were phrases like 'Don't date unless you're ready to get married' or at the age where you can support yourself on your own.
