Is waiting for marriage before sex an outdated idea? Do men value this in a woman?


It seems like when people hear about others waiting for marriage that they assume something is wrong with that person. Is waiting for marriage before sex an outdated idea? Do men (Christian or non-Christian) value this in a woman? Has any woman ever found a man that waited for marriage?

    Great answer. Thanks for all of the information. I agree with your stand on this topic. It just seems like it is never talked about or expected anymore.

    I was raised with traditional Christian values regarding sex before marriage, but have since reconsidered. I believe you have an excellent point. It makes no sense to buy a car without test driving it.

    It's cool when famous people take a positive stand on things that aren't exactly popular with the mainstream. Whether we like it or not, celebs are role models for their fans so it is good when they are being positive.

    Picking the right spouse is not an exact science. I'm sure there are those who "saved themselves" for marriage and soon realized they married a "unmitigated loser". As you noted having had sex prior to marriage helps your focus on other traits.

    Which studies are these? I'm always interested to see research that completely contradicts each other.

    This is confusing. So would you prefer for your woman to wait until marriage to have sex or not?

    Did you wait til you were married Terryk81? You can't preach on it if you're doing it.

    I agree that people should wait for marriage. It is a good point about the rise of disease, too. I believe that it would slow the spread of these illnesses. There are tons of peer pressure out there so it does make it hard to do the right thing.

    Much, much agreed! Many don't engage in responsible sex and the fate of unborn children resulting from these couplings must be considered. It is also important to limit sex to men who make good husband material.
