Should people wait until marriage to make love?

I could use a religious reason, but I won't, because I suck at religion, just like Yeshua does. My reasons are as follows. I believe there is a time and a place for making love, and that is marriage. I also believe that it is romantic to wait.

Yes.

I think it's healthy to wait so you won't have your glasses too rose colored when you legally commit (I knew a man who thought he loved a stripper, but it was just really good sex...of course it was - it was her job). People will make the comparison you should test drive the car before you buy it, but sex is one of those things that gets better over time by knowing each other, so if you or your partner sucks (not in the good way) don't worry, you can teach and grow together...no reason to rush things. I feel it can show a more serious nature, cause people can be very manipulative for sex alone. I'm also a firm believer that a relationship is going to move at it's pace whether the couple is married or not....after 3 years the real issues start to come out, and seven year itch doesn't only exist if you have a ring on your finger. But this is me giving advice to someone younger or looking to have children with someone - if your a single 40 year old you should be gifted the pleasure of fucking whoever you want whenever if your not tied down.

I agree. It makes sense that people are more sexually satisfied if they are in love and married.

Side: Yes.

If a lesbian marriage is a marriage between 2 womend and a gay marriage is a marriage between 2 men, what is a bisexual marriage? What is a transgender marriage? ;)

I agree to disagree, as I am devoted to my religon I would obviously say no!, as a lady or man should not loose their virginty to someone who is not going to be there in the next 10 or so years, why make a mistake of feeling pleasured at the age of 16 when you can wait and receive from someone who you truly love, and who truly loves you, your hormones shouldn't get in the way of this. You make love because you love that person, not because they turn you on. But my agree to disagree is. many people don't plan on getting married so I beleive you should wait until your older, when you find someone you love, and when your matured, to take this big step in your life.

Of course they should wait until they are married and not be cheap and dirty sexually.

Side: Yes.

Sex is an important expression of love. I personally think that sex should be saved for that special someone. Waiting until marriage also saves all the worry about STIs and unwanted pregnancy.

Side: Yes.

Why wait? I say get on in there.

Marriage is a social construct that is ultimately failing, you should not wait for marriage to do the dirty. However you should develop an emotional (or spiritual, depending on the person you are) partnership with your chosen individual.

Do you marry after checking for user reviews?

If there were user reviews would you ignore them? If your friends say your girlfriend is crazy would you keep going with it?

You better check with Yeshua about your crush on a married man in your church.

Side: No.

It doesn't matter, provided that the involved parties approve of it.

I wonder why it would. Are there any consequences in it inherently that you'd want to avoid?

Side: No.

I think we should do whatever we want. I think sex is being glorified by religions, but I really don't think it's that big a deal. So if you want to wait till marriage, that's fine, you should do whatever you're comfortable with. But I wait just because a book or some third party said I should.

Nope! My Grandmother used to say "Why buy the cow, when you can get the milk for free?", but I say "How do you know the milk isn't soured unless you try it first?" LOL
