Excellent answer. And a lot better explained than my clumsy attempt to say this.
The bible was written over 2000 years ago. Things have changed drastically. Sex is a physical act between two people. It is not required to be married to have sex. Marriage is a legal family system, not governed by a god or gods except in your head
You're correct Abdus, God does recommend sex after marriage, and at least partly to maintain the fabric of society. God designed us to function this way.
I hope I don't find out that my new wife is transgender after the wedding. That could make for an awkward honeymoon. And would I still have to consummate the marriage? Lord help us!!!
