There was a woman I saw give a testimony in front of a large audience at UBF. I am pretty sure the testimony was filtered by UBF members to ensure it was OK to say by UBF standards and I am pretty sure she was in line with standard operating procedure at the time.

I want to address if Bible teachers should be encouraging people to break up with their boyfriend or girlfriend, encouraging them to marry or being neutral. I suggest that encouraging them to marry and being neutral can be supported but not encouraging them to break up. When I say encourage to marry I am not talking about forced marriage, but suggesting marriage as an option.
This is a sensitive topic as it deals with the common practice of Bible students having physical relations with other people outside of marriage so to read the full article go here
