Jesus met a woman beside Jacob’s well, asked her for water, amazed her by knowing the details of her domestic arrangements…and won her faith. “Living together” comes wearing a variety of labels: cohabitation, fornication, living in sin, trial marriage, domestic partnership, immorality, and common law marriage. This elective will consider how to minister, love, and talk with couples living together outside of marriage.
