Relationships - Christian and non-Christian way
Relationships - Christian and non-Christian way
I am "transplanting" content from another place because I believe the whole issue deserves a separate thread.

Or is it really? Let me give you a nice example from real life. Recently I heard a girl saying her boyfriend made her watch a lot of westerns even though she hates them and prefers comedies. Instead of the silly sacrifice they could have simply watched the films they like in solitude and only watch together when they both like a film? For me this is the difference between the Christian idea of relationships and a more natural attitude. It seems to me that in Christianity people just torture each other instead of mutual inspiration. Christianity always tends to forcefully "meld" people and repress the woman instead of respecting the individuality of both and using the relationship to enhance lives instead of reducing them.

It is basically the difference between: "torture the woman" and "enjoy each other".
