In studying today’s youth, it is apparent that both male and female are making mistakes in relationships. Statistics confirm the tragic consequences of the many areas of the wrong choices that youth are making.
Census figures confirm that there are more women on planet earth than men. In Christian circles, it is even more scarce. Because the ratio is so disproportionate, women tend to make mistakes. They panic. They seem to sense the real possibility of being single.
As a result, too many women settle for a guy that they know is not the "right guy" for them. Yet they put up with him because they feel it’s better than being alone. If questioned at all about the guy in her life, she becomes very defensive. How many times have we heard the excuse that "He’ll change" or "Don’t judge him."
Most women want a committed relationship from one special man. It seems to be something that they are born with. This is an emotional need that is very strong. Therefore, many women willingly place themselves in a position to be mistreated. This is why God allowed Moses to write a bill of divorcement. His desire was to protect women from relationships where they are subjected to abuse and mistreatment. Yet today’s women put themselves in situations that God desires to protect them from.
