We often assume the old tradition of no sex before marriage doesn’t exist. Good news it does, just with a twist. People today have mostly out grown the habit by going around the issue and “testing the waters”. Among the older generation it was a society thing, today it’s as if only religious people still practice the idea of saving themselves. People didn’t want something that was used in a sense. Your body is a temple and should be treated as if. So what happen? Why have we changed?
Testing the waters isn’t all that bad. People prefer this method because it secures the deal. Sex can be the deal breaker in some relationships. Marriage is final. Imagine being with the last person until death, and the sex is wack. The idea does put fear in a lot of people so they do what they feel is best for them.
It still counts even if you practice celibacy. The great thing about that is, the person is still reserving themselves until marriage, creating a prize for their new life partner. It’s a sacrifice made to hold out, especially when tempting desires are faced every day so it’s a reward at honey moon.
Sex before marriage is a beautiful thing. Traditionally it creates a bond forever that only would be shared between the two of you. Children, loving one another through sickness and health are strong words. The promise can’t be taken back, so a world of first times for everything begins.
