    Pre marital sex - help with a verse, or what does your Holy Book say?

    I'm looking for the verse/s that speak of sex outside of marriage - I am aware of the verses in Leviticus on sexual practices, but I was wonder if there is a New Testament one or two about this. I'm not looking to debate them, I'm actually in the middle of a project where I need to discuss them specifically (eg NAME verses) so would appreciate your help.
    I'm also interested in what other religions may say about pre-marital sex - and verses in their Holy Book. This will be helpful also!. Thanks in advance

    I was raised Methodist...I do not recall the Church specifically stating whether pre-marital sex was taboo or not.  I was personally engaged in (more than one) pre-marital intimate relationship.  Although I was sincerely searching for love, many turned out to be just "rape" relationships.  Still unmarried, I have come to just write them off as leaning experiences.  At least I gained the benefit of learning how to satisfy a future husband - should that ever come to pass.  Now up in years, I have ceased that promiscuity out of total disinterest.  I am sure there are stricter religions.  Consult the Mormons.  I believe they more or less prohibit pre-marital sex and could probably direct you in the way you are searching for.  They would probably most definitely be able to recite you or inform you of the scriptures.

    Jainism doesn't permit either per-marietal sex or extra marital sex. In their samskrit text-'Ratna karanda Shravakachara'(Jewel box of conduct for householders), it is aid that a house holder should follow 'Brahmacharya' which, in the context of a householder means sincerity to one's wife or husband. Even thinking about other person in terms of sex is the breach of this oath of Brahmacharya.

    In Buddhism, the governing teaching (there's no one book or numbered verses) is the third precept, which is, "Do not engage in sexual misconduct." Traditionally, in most cultures, "sexual misconduct" refers to any sex outside marriage.

    This precept is not a rule, but a guideline to be honestly and intelligently applied by all individuals. The guiding precept is the purpose of Buddhism stated in the Four Noble Truths, to live in ways that eliminate and prevent suffering, and do not cause it. This includes not lying or breaking vows (4th precept), and so, clearly, applying both, all extra-marital sex is disrecommended.

    Is pre-marital sex harmful? That is the key question that would govern a contemporary decision on the Buddhist position. The traditional view is yes, sex is for a couple after marriage, and celibacy (for monks and nuns, lifelong) is the other option.

    I am a member of the Order of Interbeing, which seeks to apply the ancient teachings in today's life. In our view, sexual activity, while wonderful, opens the door to unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases (STD), and much misunderstanding and emotional pain. Therefore, we do not engage in it without a commitment that is intended to be lifelong. So, if two people intend to marry, but are not yet married, plan to stay together for life, and take appropriate care in relation to pregnancy and STDs, then this would not be an error. This also applies to couples (such as same-sex couples in some places) who are committed to remaining a couple but are not able to be legally married.

    Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one eand the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 1 Corinthians 6:13

    Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 1 Corinthians 6:18

    I fear that when I come again my God may humble me before you, and I may have to mourn over many of those who sinned earlier and have not repented of the impurity, sexual immorality, and sensuality that they have practiced. 2 Corinthians 12:18

    Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, Galatians 5:19

    Etc. etc. The big thing is that we shoud try to deny our flesh, and sex before marriage is fleshly.

    I believe that they way the bible talks about the first two people placed on this planet bu a select group of people had sex to have children and RE-populate the Earth.  RE-POPULATE it???  They were not married to each other.  It states that they "knew" each other and were not married.  Marriage is a religious governmental thing.  For this reason I do believe that every single person that you have sex with, you are also married to them.  It doesn't matter if a church gave you a piece of paper or did some kind of ceremony to make it legal in THEIR eyes or in the eyes of some government.  That is my understanding from reading the Bible without quoting scriptures but understanding them as a whole and not sentence by sentence.

    A woman who has premarital sex should be stoned to death.
    Deuteronomy
    22:20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:
    22:21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die...

    Also, if a woman does not cry for help during a rape she is to be stoned.

    Death to the Rape Victim (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB)

    If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.

    jlpark: Several months ago I published a hub titled, "Why I Chose Not To Have Pre-marital Sex."  You may want to check it out.

    I Corinthian 6:18 clearly states, "Flee Fornication."  Period.  Cut and dried.

    Fornication is defined in the dictionary as sex outside of marriage.

    Sex has become a sport.  It is no longer sacred.  When I was growing up, sex on the wedding night was the grand finale to the wedding.  Something wonderful to look forward to and to be cherished as the finality of manifesting a woman's love for her husband and a man's love for his wife.

    NOW, TODAY, people go to bars to "hook up."  People are now in a 'relationship' with each other.  There is also the "3 date rule"...to have sex by the third date.

    The result:  unwanted pregnancies; abortion; children out of wedlock; unfaithfulness; disrespect; Aids; HIV's; other sexual diseases; heartbreak; emotional guilt; emotional turmoil; hatred, lies, murder; adultery; the list goes on and on.

    Sex is great, sex is fun; sex is needed...but between two people who love each other and are MARRIED.

    All this is my opinion only.  Sparklea

    This interesting summary certainly contains the Leviticus verses you have in mind, but also cites several others, as well as a few scholarly works on the topic.  Perhaps this will help.

    http://www.theology.edu/marriage.htm

    Note the absence of a 'wedding' in the modern manner!  And it's interesting, though inconclusive, that Leviticus doesn't specifically prohibit 'pre-marital sex.'

    Of course, marriage is very different in several ways today than it was in ancient Israel.  See, for example, this discussion of concubinage:

    http://www.ukapologetics.net/concubine.html

    I think that many modern Christians read Scripture with the assumption that ancient Jewish marriages were rather like 1950s American ones, except maybe for that whole mysterious 'dowry' thing.  But this was clearly not the case.

    Hello jlpark. I really have not an answer. There are many good replies here. Sharing, Holy Books are puzzles. My suggestions are to ponder with your quest seeking more than, offering these,

    Define the question seeking answers & of purpose with purposeful. Next,

    Define for that established above
    Answer as an observer & not a participant
    Offer as a participant within all observers as a compare & contrast
    Always offer a choice of equal and opposite for compare & contrast
    Propose a conclusion & do not conclude
    Present the opportunity of the conclusion to the audience

    Next,

    Define first Sex as a specific
    Then, the variances of Sex as sexual, sexuality, sexing, sex acts, sexual acts, and etc.

    Drill down with these in the rough draft seeking the defined question as statements of two or more. Every question from my knowledge is two or more statements at least. One is yes the other is, not as in un-. Or for fun and a chuckle that is not uni with an i.

    Language
    History
    Contemporary
    Original

    Support with logic or mathematics as needed or desired. Biology will help with this quest and anatomy too.

    Compare & contrast for meaning regarding the cause or "is a discussion therefore offers levels of thoughts especially inference, considerations & pondering.

    Consider all is equal as definitions until morals & ethics are applied. Ethics are group with both relativity and relationships, yet morals are always personal and individual. 

    A discussion seeks not win nor lose, only more than before & varies with each participant.

    Once that is a known, then the verses of any Holy Book will be of avail. Without oddity many of those verses will not even have the word or any connotations or variances being Sex.

    Pre marital defines itself with the givens of "before marriage." Yet, if narrowed to Christianity, for instance, there are many thoughts of marriage regarding a 'right,' a sacrament, the basics of a contract, and more. So, original intent may be a consideration with those original religions: Islamic and Judiasm. 

    Now, answering the question remains the same as above. Regarding as being "or what does (your) as in "me," Holy Book Say? Quoted "Of Certainty and most assuredly, yet is not. We are each one of these: male, female, or different. Proof some say is of one. Each a set of some type of sex organs. All else is equal.  Each a left hemisphere, a right hemisphere, and the corpus callusum. Metaphorical proposes Male, Female, & the Betwixt of Between"
