I'd like to hear everyone's opinions on the dangers of premarital sex. Googling it up I find that people have different reasons and some are more biased than others. I myself have been abstinent for 26 years now, I'm lacking in practical reasons to share with people without faith. I find that most of the reasons people have against premarital sex is largely spiritual (Bible verses, etc), but that is because it can be difficult to find practical reasons when you haven't experienced the downfalls yourself. If you have experienced such things I would be very grateful if you would share them, it would open many perspectives for me or whoever may hear.
I believe that there are many practical reasons and practical situations to why premarital sex is a bad thing, I'd like to know as much of them as I can because they are often things worldly people will understand or tolerate (as opposed to Biblical verses).
Someone once said to me that pre-marital sex was like telling someone a deeply personal secret that you can never take back, a vulnerability so to speak. Relationships can fall because one/both people can't let go of comparing previous relationships
I will challenge you on the premarital sex if there is such a thing biblically. Or, should I say the precustamary traditional marital sex. I will suggest that sooner is better than waiting for later if the passion is there, and is of age, and parents of the daughter concents or gives in marriage. Its better to marry than to burn in passion as indicated by the Apostle Paul.
Remember sex cunsumates the marriage at any point in the union whether the traditions are followed or not. The main in thing is the man cleaving to his wife after joining. The cermony changes ever so often and a religious minister is not needed biblically. In addition to that, today, parents hardly have a role to give concent to daughter in taking a man.
The problem is not waiting for sex but how responsible the persons are in being committed together to not commit adultery biblically and deal with the changes in being together.
Also, culture has changed but bear in mind that a woman commits adultery in taking another man and man commits adultery if concent was not given in taking another wife. Fornication from the greek word pornos or porneia relates to sale of the body, whether male or female and has nothing to do with sex before the customary marriage tradition because once you have sex you are married where the man would cleave to the woman. If didnt the man would cause the woman to commit adultery if not divorced. In the Old testament a divorced woman could remarry without commiting adultery but Jesus indicate in the new testament that it would be adultery.
Permission was granted by the woman for the man to get another wife for various reasons biblically, especially in having more children if wife was baren as with Israel.
The bottom line is to stay faithful after having sex.
