church camps and married couples
This morning I was having a chat in the office with my boss and colleague about church camps and being a married couple. This weekend will be my first church weekend away as a 'married' and so for the first time is has occurred to me that you don't get to stay in the same room as your husband, which therefore caused me to think about what I think about that.
I am sitting on the fence as I can see pro's and con's of both:
- it would be financially and logistically a lot tougher to organise a room for each couple individually, it would probably increase the cost significantly and be a lot harder to organise.
- a lot of campsites and venues, normally have rooms which cater for 6 people, so it wouldn't make sense to put just two people in one room.
- should we see marriage as a family unit? couples with kids get their own room (which I think is absolutely right) but a married couple is also a 'family' too. Does that mean they should get their own room?
- in marriage the two becoming one is a gift from God and placing an importance on having couples stay together is a good thing.
- Does is really matter for the sake of two nights?? If it means the charge will be greatly reduced then can't we just let it be?
- It is a great opportunity to have some girlie time sleep over. It's always fun.
- Should there be a choice for couples to pay more to have a room to themselves.
Anyway, I haven't thought a lot about it and these are just some of my initial thoughts, as I said I am not sure what I think. When I have thought some more on this I will post my thoughts.
What do you think?
