@Overjoyed:.

As a self-identified, born-again Christian, you know that being a follower of Jesus Christ often requires Christians to make difficult choices that likely will be unpopular with many people.  When those people are our close family members or friends, it can be especially uncomfortable to choose God’s ways over practices being advocated by our loved ones. 

However, God’s Word clearly tells us that, as Christians, our allegience and obedience must always first belong to God. You will never, ever, ever go wrong with doing what is right in the eyes of God.  The path may not be easy.   However, God honors those who honor and obey Him.

this, exactly. As a Christian woman, you have the responsibility to your future husband to serve him through obedience to Christ.

the bible says a man is to leave his parents and cling to his wife and they will be ONE. You should not, as a Christian, be taking your non-christian parents advice to live in sin. Flee from immorality

 

your call to serve Christ comes from your heart. No, living in sin will not make you “less Christian” as a previous poster stated, however, part of being saved is abandoning all worldly things and following Christ because that is the ultimate desire of your heart. If following Christs commands out of love for him is not your hearts motivation, then you have to question if you are truly saved.

@BumbyBee:  And what is your opinion? Do you think that living together is a good idea? 

Would his parents be ok with it if you were engaged and lived together?
