His argument is that people may even be happier, more social, and more successful that way.On the other side of the coin are roommates who decide to live together for as long as possible.Since my friends are merely roommates, and not romantically involved, everyone else seems to think their living arrangement is acceptable. It is a very poor witness for Christian singles of the opposite sex — in ministry no less! They are damaging their credibility as Christians and especially leaders in ministry.I say it's not, since it is not a good witness and goes against what we all profess about couples not living together before marriage. What if a single young guy and girl who attend their campus ministry meetings want to move in together "just as roommates"?

Okay, we know that answer won’t win the million-dollar prize.My roommate started dating a guy about eight weeks ago.They just broke up, and it was pretty low-key, no drama or bad feelings.We talked with some friends who have experienced this and shared their insights with us. Is the boyfriend or girlfriend a bad influence on your friend? Do you think your friend’s date is a bad influence?If someone has a different set of values, or lifestyle choices, you may think your friend is doing harm to mind, body, or spirit.Hilary Howard discussed four such men who've lived together for nearly two decades in her Howard writes of the guys—Danaher Dempsey, Luke Crane, Rick Brown, and Shyaporn Theerakulstit—"They have no children, no linear career histories, no readily disposable savings.
