    Married Couples Forum Statement of Purpose

    The purpose of our Married* Couples Forum is to have a general area for our married members to discuss faith, life, love, relationship issues, etc., without fear of being judged. The "Married" icon is required for access to this forum. The "Married" icon is selected in the member's profile under "Edit Your Details".

    All of the site wide rules of Christian Forums apply. Those rules can be found here, and this is how the rules will be interpreted for this forum.

    Divorce is not to be promoted in this forum except in cases where individuals are in physical and sexual danger. Emotionally abusive relationships should seek counseling, and if this has been refused by the perpetrating spouse or failed, divorce may be considered to prevent further negative effects of the abuse. Those who are in an abusive situation may find support in the Trauma, PTSD & Dissociation forum in the Recovery forums.

    Grandfather clause: Married members who are regular participants in this forum will be grandfathered in and allowed to continue posting if they become separated or divorced, however they may only post in fellowship - no debate.

    Negative Generalities: Statements like "men are like this, women are like that", will not be used. When speaking in general terms, use the term like "some" ("Some women/men _______." )

    Intimate topics (how to deal with addiction to pornography, intimacy problems, etc.) will only be allowed in the separate forums for married men's/women's personal topics. Be cautious when wording these posts. Don't be too graphic in the OP or any replies. No promotion of the use of porn allowed.

    Submission will only be discussed in the separate forums for married men's/women's personal topics. UPDATE: Trial Thread found HERE. Please only discuss submission in that thread or in the married men's/women's personal topics.

    Concentrate on the topic at hand. Do not rehash old issues.
    When someone shares a personal experience, it's their experience and not open for judgment or any disparaging responses.
    Don't jump to conclusions about what someone else means. Ask if you're unsure.
    Be clear about what in the post is unclear to you. Do not misrepresent another member's opinions.

    Derails: If you think your post response could derail a thread discussion, please start a new thread.

    * CF Statement on Marriage
    CF has taken the stand that marriage was established by God who created us male and female (Genesis 1:27-28). We regard marriage as a sacred institution that symbolizes the mysterious bond between Christ and His church (Ephesians 5:23-24, Ephesians 5:32). We believe that marriage is much more than a civil contract between two persons, it is a sacred joining together of a man and a woman into one flesh, "Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh." (Genesis 2:21-25). Therefore, we only recognize heterosexual marriages here at CF. If you are in a same sex marriage you must select a marital status of either "Legal Union (Other)" or "Private" in your profile.​
