Is it morally acceptable to have premarital sex.


Yes.

No.

I always find that having sex leads to things like kissing and the other party becoming inquisitive and asking stupid questions like, what is your name?

Side: Yes.

Why would anyone, religious or not, need a legal document to have sex?

Side: Yes.

I don't know. If more people made love, the world would be a better place.

Side: Yes.

It's not about a legal document, I doubt most religious people get married because the government will give you a paper. It's more a spiritual union in the eyes of God. Now what's acceptable for some religious people in terms of premarital sex is a different matter.

Side: Yes.

A spiritual union has nothing to do with legal contracts, so I dont see why you have to be legally married in order to be spiritually United.

Side: Yes.

Yes of course it is , the people who deem it morally unacceptable are mainly religious prudes who deem most enjoyable things as morally unacceptable .

Side: Yes.

I honestly don't know if morality comes into play with it. I think it's highly beneficial to know if you and your partner are going to work well together when it comes to intimacy BEFORE marriage. But I also think that's after you've spent a lot of time together, not just an "I've know them for a month" type of thing.

Side: Yes.

...not just an "I've know them for a month" type of thing.

True. But, if you do it after about a month and you find you are not compatible, you wasted a month. Otherwise you waste a lot more time ;)

Side: Yes.

Is it really wasting? I wouldn't consider it that, I got to know someone and who knows maybe there are ways to help them in that department. Some people are a bit shy at first.

Side: Yes.

It should be required before the marriage license is issued. Buyer Beware! Test the product before you buy it.

Side: Yes.

No one would have asked this question in a time before we invented marriage

Of course it depends on your own morals, but yes, because

1) You're consenting adults

2) It's legal

3) In a free country you're not bound by one religion's view. Imposing that view violates freedom of religion.

4) This isn't just about young couples, in fact the very aged still have sex. Does a 60 year old man really need to marry a 60 year old woman to fool around?

5) There are studies out there (and I'll dig one up if you ask) that despite the religious verbally insisting on marriage first the majority of them in fact are having sex before marriage.

Side: Yes.

It's neither moral, nor immoral, it just is. It's a natural act, one all of us are born with.

Side: Yes.

I would strongly argue no, but that is because i am a Christian. I am not going to force my morals over someone because that is tyrannical and not what God wants, but i would strongly encourage people to wait for marriage, because pre martial sex can pervert what true intimacy is.

Side: No.

That is the thing about religion. Anything that feels good sends you to Hell. :'(

Blushes. True that. ;) .

Side: Yes.

Depends on what morals you follow.

I don't think it matters, provided that the involved parties approve of it.

Side: No.

sex is for a lifetime merger of one man and one woman to be one flesh.

Let's ignore the obvious STD's spread by sexual contact, some of them without symptoms for decades and completely unknown to the carriers...and please don't bother me with "safe sex", there is no such thing. If you are engaging in sex outside of marriage, you are risking disease and encouraging others to take that risk.

You have your body for a lifetime, your body is worth your whole life. If you give it away in a relationship which is not a lifetime commitment, you are giving it away cheap and you are devaluing yourself and the other person.

God said not to do it for your own well being. All the commandments of God have your best interests at heart.

Why do you think teenagers are committing suicide today? They toy with their bodies, they feel defiled and worthless when their "lover" doesn't want them any more, so what's the point of staying with a body when their "lover" doesn't want it? They kill themselves to get out of the thing the feel trapped in because it's dirty.

I could go on and on but I won't, and I wont' argue this subject with you. If you want to give your body away for less than it's worth, and risk diseases and maybe spread diseases you don't even know you have now, well, our anti-God perverted society seems to be cheering you on, I think they want a piece too....maybe you can sell some to them. If you don't like me talking this way because it sounds like I'm saying you are cheap, dirty, perverted if you are engaging in sex outside of marriage like a whore, then you must be guilty, eh?

All sexual indulgence outside of marriage is wrong. Sex is for a man and woman to become one flesh after they are legally married.

Side: Yes.
