And believe it or not, there's no sin in that. "It is better to marry than to burn", said Paul.  Wink  And "let them marry; they sin not". Without sex, you can just stay good friends with somebody. God put this yearning in us for that companionship and the physical expression of it.

I'm sure that's one reason God put the book there, Song of Solomon. There are plenty of parallels with Christ's relationship with his people, the Church, and intentionally so, but it is obviously also describing very phsyical acts, albeit in sometimes poetic language, sometimes frankly literal. It is a beautiful thing, made by God for us and for Himself, and He thinks so much of everything that goes along with the marriage and the marriage bed (excuse the language) that He uses it to describe His own relationship to us. "The marriage supper of the Lamb..", for example.

That said, take those verses from "homie" very seriously about "finding the wrong mate", and that's from experience.

Find someone whom you can make happy.
