Premarital Sex: Is it Worth the Wait? Premarital sex used to be a huge problem in the society. But, I’ve noticed that it hasn’t been lately anymore. Sex after marriage becomes less important every minute of everyday. As a matter of fact, in this present generation we live in, it has already been accepted among people, especially to the teenagers. It does not really bother or matter to them anymore but rather, if they’ve done it, they’re even in the “in” crowd now.
When someone says he/she isn’t a virgin, it won’t be as that shocking news as some may have imagined it to be.
Sex is already all over the society. Although, people having sex today are not aware of the consequences that come with having sex. They just think its fun and can please them by satisfying their needs. But nevertheless, I still think otherwise. I have several points that I want to point out to people so that they can consider these before engaging into premarital sex.
The basic two reasons why we have to save sex for marriage is because, one, God tells us to and two, sex outside marriage cause damages in physical and relational consequences.
Do people even know that premarital sex is a sin? Well, it is. Christians who engage in premarital sex are breaking God’s laws and are not following Jesus Christ word. God created sex not for pleasure but for the process of procreation with the person you truly love.
You may ask, “What if my boyfriend and I really are truly in love? Can we then have sex now? ” The answer is still no. I remember doing a report on love. It was a passage I got from the bible. It says, “Love is patient. Love is kind.
It does not seek to please itself nor does it delight in evil… ” At that time, I didn’t truly understand what it meant, not until now. True love would be patient in waiting for the proper time to have sex. If you really love each other, you are willing to wait after you get married. Your virginity is the best gift you can give to your husband or your wife — the purity in your heart, spirit and soul. Not only is it a sin but it also is dangerous. Would you risk your life just to be pleased and get satisfied by having sex? I don’t think so.
There is a big risk of contracting STDs and AIDS with each other and it is a very serious issue. A person can die from a simple cold if they have contracted the AIDS virus. This disease has been responsible for killing millions of people already. Other than that, you can also get pregnant. What if you do and that person didn’t want to take responsibility of the your child because you don’t really love each other? What will happen now? You would probably abort the child, which will lead to another sin being committed then and there.
Would you take a person’s life even without them being born yet? If you do, then you don’t have any heart. Having been said and explained these arguments, there is still this one question running through everyone’s mind: Why do they still do it? Most teenagers answer: “everyone’s doing it. ” or “If you loved me you’d do it” and even “It’s okay I have a condom. ” But I don’t think these reasons are valid enough. You can’t give in to peer pressure that easily. Premarital sex can be harmful to our body, our future, and the scariest of all is our eternity.
You have your own right to say what you want. If you’re not ready then don’t do it. If he/she forces you then that just means that they are only after one thing – pleasure. You shouldn’t be easily taken away with words they say. People usually lie just to get what they want. The main purpose of sex is really to unite a married couple as one loving body in the Sacrament of Matrimony and for them to procreate and bear a child as God wanted it to be. So if I were you, I would save having sexual intercourse with the person that is really meant for me.
