What are your thoughts?

GO.

Things to consider;

On the plus side of waiting for marriage;

Whether the world functioned better when more people waited for marriage to have sex.

Whether we could have stopped STI's/Aids in its tracks if 30-40 years ago we haddnt been so promiscuious.

People who wait generally marry younger. They are at prime breeding age and dont have to worry about getting "too old" to have a child.

There would be more "family unit". Children generally turn out best with both a mother and a father, this is more likely to be the case if people marry, or religious people tend to stay together for the kids more perhaps, though many feel thats wrong.

Eliminates the "need" for contraception.

On the negative side;

Your dream honeymoon is most likely going to be a 30 second explosion if your both virgins on your wedding night.

No try before you buy.

People might marry younger and faster than they should because theyre horny and cant wait :worship:

Some people feel humans just arent hard wired to have one sexual partner their whole life.

I know there will be many that might feel sex before marriage is okay, but children should wait for marriage or vice versa. I know its two very different things, but I feel they are interlinked and a seperate thread for both would be overkill.

Definitely wrong. I hope all of you that have had sex before marriage go and rot in hell.

(please don't ban me, it's not my fault I'm such a religious man)

My only wish is for tolerance of other people's decisions whether to marry, not marry, have kids, not have kids.

What other people do in their bedroom is their business. I hate societal pressure to force people to do this or do that.

I have no problem with any of it. The only thing that matters is that people are happy.

Personally, I want to have kids, at least 1, if not 2 or 3, however many kids I can support financially. And from 1 woman, 1 wife. All this baby momma 1, 2, and 3 that some athletes get themselves involved with is so stupid and expensive. 1 woman.

Federer, Djokovic, and Nadal all have one thing in common. One long term woman.

I think sex before marriage is just smart, because it's an important part of any relationship and you should test it out before committing more seriously... And besides, it helps to avoid situations where people get married too quickly because they're not comfortable waiting for years to let their passion for each other show.

My parents weren't married when I was born. And I'm 16 and have had sex, so... hope not a problem!

Sex is fine but cuddling before marriage is definitely not on IMO.

Ajde.

Poll option #5 "Sex before marriage is not okay, but a child before marriage is".

In fairness this could mean adoption or artificial insemination. Nowadays, virgins can give birth. :p

Could also mean if the woman or man had a child from a previous relationship or marriage, and they were a solo parent (or the other parent was nowhere to be found) and you sort of took on that child as your couples own child.

Option 5 :spit: :rolls:

I'm for option 2 though.

I'm almost 19 and I last year had sex with the guy that I've been in a relationship for 4 years and that I truly love more than anyone :shrug:
