Dealing With a Partner’s Sexual History

Jackie and Bobby tackle the difficult topic of dealing a partner’s sexual history, especially when it differs from your own.

A person’s past impurity is an obstacle the devil likes to use to toy with your head, making you think you’re not good enough for him or her because you didn’t wait for marriage and they did, or making you think he or she is not good enough for you because they didn’t wait. Pride and shame come in various forms when it comes to this issue, and it’s tough to wade through all that muck to get to a place of renewal.

God makes all things new, though, so even if a partner’s sexual history causes envy or discomfort, remember that through the sacrament of reconciliation we can all start our relationships with a clean slate.

“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

John 10:10
