Get Married Or Move Out

Q. My younger sister, who loves the Lord,  has allowed her youngest son (21) & his girlfriend  to live together in her house for  years. Now she says God is telling her to stop it.  She asked me what to do.  I told her that if she is hearing from God, she’d better obey.  If they insist on sleeping together, then get their own place (which they can’t afford), or get married. Either way, they need to stand up on their own – or at least try to.  My sister needs to cut the apron strings, but is afraid to because her son is on their medical insurance.  What do you think?


A. It sounds pretty simple. If your sister believes God is telling her to require her son to either get married to his live in girlfriend or move out, she should obey Him. Besides, it’s her house and she’s paying the bills so she gets to make the rules.

Since the two have been living together as husband and wife for years it shouldn’t be that big a deal to get married, and since they can’t afford to live anywhere else, it seems like a small accommodation to make out of gratitude for her generosity.

If your sister is allowing this situation in order to keep her son on her insurance illegally, she is knowingly participating in a fraudulent act.  If so every claim the insurance company pays on her son’s behalf could be considered as theft.
