Should I leave him or should I stay?


July 26, 2016

Dear Pastor,

I am 18 years old and I've been in a relationship with a man for a year now. I have to admit that it's being really rough.

When I first met this man, he told me he had a girlfriend, but he was very unhappy with her because she cheated on him. I told him I did not want to be with him because he was already in a relationship.

A few months after they broke up, we got together. Before we were together, we were fooling around and I knew it was wrong. I've tried to put myself in the girl's shoes to see what it would be like if it were me.

A few months after we got together, he moved away for school. Pastor, this is where I started to see changes in him.

I found out about another girl and that the girl he was fooling around with was his ex.

He tells me every day that he loves me and I'm the only girl he ever really loved. But things have changed and I still feel the same way. I think it's best if we break up.

I don't know if I should leave him or if I should stay. I am young and I have my whole life ahead of me and I don't wish to spend it worrying over a man.


Dear O.K.,

Girl, you are young and you are yet to learn that some men are deceitful.

He lied to you. You gave him your body and now he has left you. He is doing his own thing. If you want to pine over him, it's up to you.
