I Dated A Married Person

Can sin cause troubles? My girlfriend was married when she started going out with me (they ended up divorced). Now I found out she had an abortion too. She repented and I forgave her. What should I do?

You can pray for her and her lost baby.

Know that there is a reason divorces take so long. It is so the two people can get their lives straightened out from another.

Give her the time and space she needs,but be there for her when she feels the need to
talk about stuff. You can show her you care by respecting her body and feelings.

Bring her to your church and help her make friends with the other women in the church.

Larry, there were divorces granted in the Bible, there is nothing stating that you should not date a divorced person. They were given permission to re-marry if the "bill of divorcement" were for reasons of adultery. Yes, dating a married person was wrong, but even that can be forgiven. 1 John 1:9

Dear Friend.
you are wrong in dating a married person. and even wrong in dating a divorced person. abortion can be forgiven if she repent, but she need to go back to her husband and you leave her to be reconciled with her God and her Husband.
you need to repent too for causing havock in the kingdom of God.

If your girlfriend dated you when married to someone else, it stands to reason that if you marry her, she will date a third man and divorce you for him.

Sin and trouble work hand in hand. Because where there is sin, trouble is always behind it. If you forgave her then you shouldn't need to ask this question. Your mouth may have forgiven her, but has your heart? Sounds like you still have some resentment toward her. People can't change without God's help. If you can get pass this with God's help and she has truely repented with her heart and you have forgiven her with your heart, then work on that on step at a time.

Larry, when you first dated her, did yuo know she was married?
If you did, you were both wrong.
if you did not, it means she lied to you ... and now about the abortion too.
What makes you think yuo will be able to trust her?

At the risk of sounding sarcastic, which is not my intention, the Bible says that sin leads to DEATH. Do you consider that a problem? Repent! Turn away from this situation and don't look back. God is a God of forgiveness, but you must not continue in it.

King David also repented of the gross sins he committed with Batsheba but there were still consequences. What the 2 of you did was a horrible thing and it's great you have forgiven eachother but you need to get on your knees with her and get a whole hearted repentance to God or sin is going to rise up again in the future. What you sow is what you reap unless you can put a stop to it.

You bet sin causes trouble, it makes the weight of life so Heavy we cannot feel a thing.

It creates dispair by dulling your vision of the truth, and if you continue you won't even believe God can love you.

You need Christian Brotherhood not fornication.

I think that I would end this relationship.
You didn't say whether you were married too.
---bob on 10/5/06

You should repent for dating a married woman. By you dating her, you hindered her chances of being reconciled with her husband.
---bob on 10/5/06

Is there any teaching for dating in Bible, if not then you commited sin. Be ready for punishment. His grace is beyond our thinking.
---Kamran on 10/5/06

Repent, Larry, and ask God to forgive you.
