Many Christians desire to find a life partner who shares their Christian faith. For some, this is rooted in Biblical teaching. For others it is the desire to share life with a partner who is rooted in the same beliefs, values and traditions. But many Christians will find themselves in marriages where faith may not be shared by their spouses.
Is it possible to maintain one’s faith in the face of opposition from one’s spouse? How will it affect any children of the marriage?
This year we became a Greenbelt Associate, working with them to put together a programme of events together for single festival goers.
The recent upheavals last week at Spark Networks, operators of Christian Mingle and Jdate pose some important questions about niche dating sites. Stockholders voted out most of the existing board and signalled a change in direction.
Do the events there say anything more generally about the state of the niche dating model?
For the last 13 years since we launched Christian Connection, I have hoped that one day a TV programme about Internet dating would come along which is genuinely well informed, probing and helpful. But I ended up watching ‘ITV Tonight: Looking for Love’ with a mixture of frustration and resignation. Apparently the twittersphere agreed with me.
Christian Connection is an award-winning Christian dating website in the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, USA and Canada.
Since the UK launch in 2000, thousands of Christians have found friendship, love and marriage through the site.
