Are any young people saving themselves sexually for marriage anymore?

Recommended Posts

I am so old fashioned, but I still strive to follow the Bible.  It seems as if dating couples, even Christian couples have redefined what is acceptable between a couple sexually before a life long committment.  I believe when one has sex, they have united as one.  I know our culture is so different than Jesus day when girls were married young and parents chose the marriage partners.  Now our young folks have way too much time together which makes it nearly impossible to not get the hormones working.  I have even heard it said that since we have the birth control pills, sex is ok because pregnancy is not longer as much a threat.  Appreciate any comments on your thoughts concerning this growing concern among our youth today.    Ruth Earleen Snider

Welcome to Worthy, Ruth.  My granddaughter had her first kiss after they were engaged.

It is hard to happen. But there are some who do, obviously.

"And do not be conformed to this world,
    but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove
        what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." - Romans 12:2

By grace, I never had any sexual relation with other people. I do not even know what a kiss is, or how is it to hold hands.

You may think I am extraordinarily ugly, dislike women or worse, but that is not the case.

 

I am 27, and I am looking forward to marriage. And the wait becomes much easier in Christ.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." - Philippians 4:13

I am relieved and blessed to hear there is even one left :)  Bless you and I pray He will make sure you are all you should become in Him and be the husband she needs and I am willing to bet He's working that same outcome in her life.  May your children be many and serve Him all their days.

I wish I could claim I held  my sexuality  in honor and purity before marriage.  I cannot.

Anymore? My thought is nothing is much different than it always has been regarding sex.

I am afraid most are not saving themselves for marriage. I am sure there is a hand full that do. It is just the path our world is taking today. Many even have children outside of marriage.We know as Christians what God calls for us to do. That is what is most important.

I did not choose that either, then I was not the responsible for this result.

If it was not God, I would have done that much earlier.

"For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen." - Romans 11:36

 

It actually is hard for me to know people, if that was easy, I would certainly be just one more victim.

Blessings!

Hi again, what about old people? Widowers and widows, is marriage for them  before sex between them or not? What is a union between two individuals under God anyway? Is it to be State endorsed? I just don't see myself entering into surveillance of individuals to know whether they are engaging in sex or not. I will just guess people are not a bit different today than they were yesterday, nor will be tomorrow.
