while I was a teenager, the term “sex” was not a term spoken among my circles.  I grew up believing intercourse was for the procreation of children. I still believe this, only--------

At the same time, I had a few girlfriends. We held hands, kissed each other from time to time and continued a great relationship; but I never considered this “sex”.

I eventually married and now I am a grandfather several time over.
My desire to have children has long since passed; I am a grandfather several times over, but I still enjoy the company of a woman. Having said the above, I now wonder if my joy of having the company of a women; a feeling of “sex” or one of “love”; or is there a difference-?

In short is it sinful to enjoy the company of a woman knowing marriage is not an option.
Just asking
No animosity intended or implied
Just curious

Not really sure what you are asking, are you asking if it is okay to have sex with a woman to whom you are not wed, because the Bible is pretty unambiguous on that point.

As to the title,  Love is an emotion, sex is an action, sex should always be in the context of love, and marriage.

Love is more than emotion, especially as shown in the bible.

I desire the company of women but yet I am not married.  Sex with women has spiritual and biological effects.  Those effects can be positive or negative.  It is against the bible to be one flesh with one you to whom you are not married for good reasons.

True, there are different kinds of love, it can be verb or an adverb or adjective.  But in the context of the OP, I took the love in question to be Eros, which I feel is more emotive than anything else.  That said, you are correct, any discussion of love as an emotion is incomplete.
