No sex before marriage dating

Obedience requires that sex be reserved for one’s spouse.

The Genesis account of creation makes it clear that God’s creation is “good” (Genesis ).

Sex outside of marriage also damages the relationship between the persons involved. If two people do not cherish sex enough to wait for a marriage commitment, how can they trust one another for fidelity?

Conversely, a man and woman build trust and respect for one another when they both survive the struggles of self-control — each will have the confidence that the other respects them, and cherishes their intimacy.

Similarly, if a person has not carried sexual purity into marriage, his or her marriage relationship is affected by the past.

If a man or woman has previously had sex with someone else, their marital intimacy has already been affected.
