    Do you think that abstinence before marriage should be practiced today and why?

      If that is what the person wants to do or believes is moral, sure.

      If not, no.

    That's a tough one, Michele. It depends upon what perspective you speak from, religious or social. I believe that there are a lot of young couples who are spiritually and emotionally mature enough to discern via their religious beliefs and make the decision that works for them. I also know that there are young people who are not socially responsible enough to deal with all that comes with being sexually active. On the flip side, waiting until marriage may be the "right" thing but naivitee and inexperience can also cause problems in a marriage. So, as I said, that's a tough one with no definitive answer.

    How about everyone mind their own business regarding what total strangers decide to stick where and with whom and at what time.

        I agree every couple is different, in maturity levels and such. It would be a shame if a couple was compatable in many areas but not sex, as it's been brought out here, you get to see each other on a whole, more intimate level. What if you don't like what you see? I say take the plunge! Many teens who make those chastity vows break them anyway. But in conclusion, only the two together can decide what's right for them, and I hope they are at least in their later teens.

    In my opinion, one should not engage in sex before marriage. But, if someone is unable to control their feelings and emotions then he/she can have. Sex before marriage is not good at all, it ruins our character too.

    You might as well have sex before marriage, because from what I hear you sure as hell ain't gettin' it after you are married!  smile

    I believe life is a personal journey.
    It's up to the individual to decide what is best for them. No one should be able to tell you what to do with your own body. Ideally you want to find a mate that shares your own values.

    I believe people should do what works for them. Personally I think sex is a very large part of a relationship. I couldn't imagine not knowing that side of our relationship in the years we were together before marriage.

    Sex is a very important part of a relationship and during sex is when you see each other at your most vulnerable. Sexual compatibility is not gaurunteed and it would be a great shame to find that the partner who is so perfect in other aspects of life just does not connect with you physically. This could lead to great unhappiness. It is also true that it takes time to truly connect in a physical way... so initial lack of connection isn't to be taken as a failure. In the end everyone is different and should only do what they are comfortable with. Peace.

          Some people should spare others the misery and just enjoy their sorry butts only at the Dance of the Desperates... and not inflict real people with such poor relationship skills!  roll

          I'm pretty sure the new selective breeding programs will sort out the duds though!  smile

    If you believe in Bible, don't do it. If you don't believe, you have the choice in front of you but it would be nice if you still didn't.
