6 Things I say to Christian Couples having Sex before they Marry
Premarital sex - Wikipedia
A healthy sexual relationship is a vital component of a healthy marriage. But I believe a negative attitude about sex wages war against Christian marriages. It is a means of dividing couples in the most intimate way possible and is a quiet but deadly attack on Christian marriages. Any woman who has intimacy issues with her husband must know that it is an attack on her most precious earthly relationship.
Imagine a couple who love Jesus, love each other, are definitely going to get married, and are having sex. They know sex has a mysterious ability to create soulish and physical oneness. For that reason, they want to leverage the oneness-enhancer of sex as they move towards marriage. They believe God knows their hearts and that God is pleased they are committed to marriage. I start by telling I care for them, and am grateful for the opportunity to talk to them.
A mericans love to tout the value of waiting until marriage to have sex. We teach abstinence-only education in schools across the country, and even comprehensive sex-ed programs often point out that "abstinence is best. There's a booming "purity industry", complete with jewelry, elaborate events, books, t-shirts and DVDs. Our state and federal tax dollars have long been spent promoting "chastity". While conservative commentators are happy to assert that waiting until marriage is the best choice for everyone and people who don't wait aren't doing marriage "the right way", sex-positive liberals hesitate to say that having sex before marriage is an equally valid — if not better — choice for nearly everyone.
