Healthy Relationships and Sexual Decision Making

Is your relationship based on trust?
Do you feel respected in your relationship?
Do you and your significant other look out for the best interests of each other?

In a healthy relationship, both people seek to be friends—to get to know each other and enjoy shared activities along the way. Physical involvement follows relational and emotional connectedness and sex is treasured and reserved for a lifelong committed relationship.

Sometimes in a relationship, this ordering may get turned upside down. Early physical involvement stunts the growth of emotional intimacy. Sex may substitute for learning more about each other’s personality, goals and character. When conflict or pain arises, it may be easier to turn to sex than to work through issues and grow together.

It does not have to be this way. You have the freedom to choose sex now or to save sex, beginning today, for the person who commits to love and cherish you for the rest of your life.
