'Why would someone wait until marriage to have sex? What benefit is there? Why is virginity a special gift?'

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

'Why would someone wait until marriage to have sex? What benefit is there? Why is virginity a special gift?' I'm a virgin, and waiting to share that special gift of human sexuality with that one person I will commit the rest of my life to in marriage (when and if :) A strong foundational supports of a marriage is intended to be the exclusive physical/emotional bond of sexual union. One of the most beautiful ways I think of saving myself for my future wife is looking at it this way: I'm going to love her SOOOO much that right now, as I go through life (even though I don't know for sure who it is I may marry :) I am saving this GIFT. And I want to give this GIFT only to her, a one of a kind, the most precious person I will ever meet. And she DESERVES it. That gift I will have hopefully kept to show her that she is something REALLY, REALLY SPECIAL. And you know what, I know she will appreciate that with her whole heart. In today's society it's a rare and unique person who wishes to save that gift of sexual union for his/her lifetime marriage partner. I would encourage anyone questioning, feeling the peer pressure, the societal pressure, the boyfriend/girlfriend pressure, to wait until you both enter that lifetime covenant with each other. What could be more exciting, more special, more emotional than sharing the wonders of sex with your one true and dedicated love!?! Think about it. Think about the future. Think about your future wife or husband. Don't they deserve your absolute best? It's something that you will remember forever, and what better way to experience it than in a relationship lasting a lifetime. :) 'How does one prepare oneself to lose their virginity? And what can you do to get over being *really* nervous about your first time?' ...read more.

In openness. In assurance. In confidence. In security. Without fear. Without shame. What better way to discover and explore this wonderful territory than starting off TOGETHER! Dedicated fully to helping, pleasing, and serving each other in the exclusive lifetime commitment of marriage. 'I firmly believe in "try before you buy".' Ok. Try before you buy. Taking this position then you are saying that a main priority in your decision to accept a woman in a relationship is sexual. So if she doesn't live up to your expectations then you dump her? Would any females reading this go for the above? That a male would judge you and accept or reject you based on your sexual prowess, or how you rate against the sexual ability of other women? EXTREMELY shallow. What about comparison? How do you judge a woman as to her sexual capability? If this is the only woman you ever had sex with, and the experience was quite fulfilling, then how could you honestly judge that she is not 'good enough.' You can't because there is no one else to compare with. Unless you have had previous sexual partners. Then you can 'rate' her performance in bed...'..I give this one a 6.7...'...*uggghhhhh*... Also 'try before you buy' -- remember STDs, pregnancy, consequences etc. *** qUoTeS *** "Studies show that a relationship based on physical attraction may hold itself together for three to five years. During that length of time two people are fooled into thinking, "Well, we've been going together for so long, surely we can make it for a lifetime. This must be love." On the other side of marriage, they wake up to see they had little in common and no basis for a quality relationship." #7 *** lyrical interlude *** Babe, you whisper in my ear Things I shouldn't hear Oh girl, this time you've gone too far It's like a falling star You're givin' yourself away Too much a price to pay Girl, temptation's all around Our love has ...read more.

Conclusion

Well I know quite a few 'religious people' who choose not to engage in premarital sex for other reasons than just 'because God said so.' Take a look back to all the possible motivations presented in the previous sections of this 'FAQ'. And moral laws have their basis in the practical. God knows EXACTLY those things which are necessary for a man and woman to fully enjoy a loving, intimate, committed, life-long relationship. He has graciously given us guidelines for our benefit, happiness, and protection. To make an analogy, a parent will tell his/her child not to touch the hot stove. Why doesn't the child touch it? Because of the parent's warning. But when he is old enough he will understand that the stove is hot and would hurt his hand. The practical behind the law. :) *** lyrical interlude *** Your boyfriend told you it would be alright And all your friends are doin it in the dark of the night They say you're gonna like the way it makes you feel But how you gonna deal with the guilt and pain that's so real? You see no end in sight. C'mon and make it right... Somebody sold you a lie. Will you listen to this or will you be surprised? And all your friends said it would be alright As long as you believe in God you can do what you want on a Friday night So you do what they call fun But tell me do you feel empty when the morning comes Somebody sold you a lie. Will you listen to this or will you be surprised? You can't even believe the people that you idolize 'Cause somebody sold you a lie In the heat of it all we compromise our faith As the tension builds we break...�'Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things...' Philippians 4:8 ...read more.
