What does the Bible say about? Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous. A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband.
For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

She said: ‘I still want to hang out and I won’t always bring my husband. We can still have girls’ nights! Another said she wished she could tell her friends that being married doesn’t mean her partner understands everything she says to him, and that she still needs the support from her friendships. We still need our friends,’ she said.
A different married woman said: ‘When I say I have to check with my husband before agreeing to plans with you, I’m not “asking his permission”. My marriage consists of trust and communication, and I would expect the same from him if the situation was reversed.

Bible verses about Married Women Having Male Friends. A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
I am stuck at the age old question of can men and women be friends. I recently made some new friends since I relocated 2 years ago, 2 of these new friends are men. One is actually a former work colleague and despite him often over sharing about his dating life, there is not an issue. However, the other male freind who I met in a class at the gym is the problem.
Maybe because we first knew each other only covered in sweat, there was a comfort level from the beginning where I felt like I knew him forever and we started to hang out outside of sports. He introduced me to a lot of people when I was in a new city. I really have fun with this guy and value his friendship which has only strenthened over the past 2 years. But, he recently declared that he has feelings for me that he would like to act on.
We had a serious conversation over dinner last week and he has agreed to respect my wishes and boundaries. What troubles me is that he made it very clear that he will be there for me in case I change my mind. I told him I need that door to remain shut. Can we continue to be friends or is this a slippery slope kind of situation now that his feelings are out in the open?
