Do most people have sex before marriage?

June 22nd, 2011

Im wondering this because i am a strong believer in waiting until marriage. I don’t want people to make fun of me because i believe in this either. Im just curious. I am determined to leave my True Love Waits Ring on my finger truthfully until it is replaced by my wedding ring.(:
Thanks(: And i didnt know what to put this under haha sorry.
thank you all for encouraging me, it makes me feel better knowing that people actually think its a good thing(:

    Unfortunately, most people DO have sex before marriage. You are doing the RIGHT thing. Stick to your guns.

    Yes…sadly most people do have sex before marriage. Especially teenagers this day and time. That is why the teenage pregnancy rate has increased so much over the years! I to believe in sex after marriage! 🙂

    i wouldn’t say “most” people do. if you’re talking about only in the united states, yes, a lot of people do before marriage, probably the majority of people. but if you’re talking about in the entire world, i’d say its about even. many cultures kill people who don’t wait. but anyways, you’re doing a good thing. stick to it. there aren’t many people out there like you these days in the u.s.

    Most people do. It’s a result of how people often wait until their late 20’3 or 30’s to get married.
    I think the average age to lose your virginity in the states is 17.

    I firmly believed in chastity until I around when I turned 17. Then I went through all this religious and spiritual stuff and ended up no longer seeing it as a necessity. Now I just think you should try to be together for a year, be 18 and graduate high school. But I think it varies from person to person, and we can’t condemn others for their choices.

    Looking back, I do believe chastity may have helped me to be pickier about who I dated and other things. It is a good choice, as long as it feels right to you. 🙂 Good luck!

    I had a ‘true love waits’ ring too. (it was pink rubber and said that phrase on it).

    Best of luck with your life, you see to be a good thinker. I think you’ll be very happy and successful in your life.

    I am a believer of TRY BEFORE YOU BUY. What if you married a premature ejaculator, or a gay man? When you get a boyfriend and he is willing to wait for the wedding night, it is because he is putting off the inevitable moment when you find he is hopeless in bed. Do you want someone who will hop on, be finished in seconds, run out of the room and scrub himself all over in the shower and then get fully dressed and sit in front of the tv all night in the lounge room, afraid to come back into the bedroom? Or he leaps out of bed and runs out to the lounge room where he left his clothes, gets dressed and runs out the front door and comes back 4 hours later smelling of beer? He leaves his clothes in the lounge room so he won’t have to get dressed in the bedroom, where you might use the opportunity to ask him what is going on! And this is every night! You had no idea because you put off sex till marriage. Then you leave him after 2 months of putting up with this. When everyone asks what happened, you are too embarrassed to tell them. You sit around amongst your wedding gifts, like Private Benjamin, wallowing in depression.

    some people have sex before marriage but umm your doin the right thing

  12. Sir Viever says:

    Whether you wait until marriage to have sex or not, it’s the day-to-day renewal and commitment that the relationship should be based on. Never take anything for granted. Be a team both working on making each others’ lives as good as possible.

    Need to make sure everything works before the wedding night. It is a big commitment marriage so why just take the chance everything will be ok once all the papers have been signed. Glad I took the wife for a spin around the block before we even decided to commit.

  14. Ad Dfe says:

    yes they do.

  15. Megan says:

    It’s not a bad thing to have sex before you’re married as long as you trust the person and you are in love. Everyone should make ther own decision on whats right for them. I had a co-worker who truly believed in “test driving the car before you drive it off the lot”

  16. Vanessa says:

    yes a lot of people do..but if your waiting for that right one go for it bc when you get older you will feel good about it… keep at it.

  17. Li Hud says:

    yes, 90% of them.
