|Halacha - Relationships|
|Submitted by anonymous Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
|Question: Is it permissible for a boy and girl (both mature and frum) to have a relationship? By "relationship" I don't mean dating or stuff like that, but I mean a "boyfriend-girlfriend" relationship. (Assuming they are both yarei Shamayim, shomer negiah, no yichud, and have kosher behavior; but they just have an emotional connection and relationship).|
HaRav Moshe Feinstein has an extensive Teshuva in Igros Moshe Even HaEzer vol 4 Siman 60 where he concludes that this precise situation would absolutely be forbidden Min HaTorah.
