77% of married pastors surveyed feel they don’t have a good marriage, 50% of these marriages end in divorce... But what do you do if you're a single pastor? How do you meet prospects? Obviously it isn't appropriate for you to be in a sexual relationship but how does the congregation feel about you "casually dating"? Do you think they would have more respect for you if you were married?
On the other hand, if you met the perfect match for you, things were going great and then they dropped the bomb.... "I'm a Pastor".... would you run or try your best to make the relationship work? Pastors work a lot, the congregation may constantly judge you and you may start to feel like you have to change who you are to live a "holier" life.
What are the challenges of dating a pastor? Would you do it?
