Sex before marriage?

Does anyone else feel that not having sex before getting married is kind of like buying a car without test driving it.

  • Not really. Although I don't believe that sex should wait untill marriage, I also dont' believe in giving it a Test Run either. Good sex is something that comes from communication and practice and getting rid of prudish inhibitions :).

  • I disagree! I wish I had waited until I was married.

  • Nope. Sex should not be the basis of marriage. Sex is a perk. If it's great then it's like buying a car and finding out it had great added features. I did not have sex until marriage and am very proud to say so.

  • It really doesn't matter what others think about this topic, this is way TOO personal. Hon, you need to do what YOU feel is right in your heart, deep down in your gut. Follow your instincts!

  • No. There have been studies that show that people who have sex before marriage, and those that live together before marriage have higher divorce rates than those who don't. I think that's a pretty good reason NOT to.

  • Studies are misleading, anything can be proved in a study. It's a personal choice period

  • No, I do not relate sex and car driving. It's a bad analogy. There's no morality involved in driving a car, but there is in respecting yourself and your future husband enough to wait for marriage to have sex.
