First, I will say with experience. Lack of intercourse with your partner can lead to detrimental results. What would happen when you finally get into bed with your spouse....and things just do not work so well? Did you know you can get an annulment due to impotency? Yup. If the male can not get it up, and you can actually get down.....that is grounds for an annulment. http://www.divorcenet.com...

Also, what if your partner is just horrible in bed? Wouldn't you like to actually know everything about them before marriage? Dedicating your life to one peron is tough. Espeicially when you cannot test the water before hand.

Also. Leave religion out of this. Religion will simply muddy the waters. If you'd like a discussion on religion later, we can do so.

Thank you for your response. Your experience means nothing here unless proven by more than one source. I will not accept theoretical statements like, "What would happen if..." Because it is easily countered by, "What if when you wait for the right time after marriage and find out it is the best sex ever?"http://www.leaderu.com...

Marriage should mean more than sex and how you preform in bed. It is traditionally two becoming one. Love is a lot different then lust. http://www.yourtango.com...
There are many cures for erectile dysfunction. http://www.everydayhealth.com...

"Testing the water" before marriage is wrong for many reasons. There are many consequences caused from premarital sex. http://iosrjournals.org...

1.Neurological Problems
When having sex, both man and women produce hormones that affect the brain. Dopamine a chemical compared to heroin is released affecting the brains ability to remember. Another chemical that is released mainly in the women is Oxytocin. Known as a bonding hormone, this is linked to mothers ability to die for their child. So when having sex the bonding hormone is released making the women bonded to him or her emotionally. Men on the other hand produce vasopressin also known as the "monogamy hormone". It has the same affect on the male. He is bonded to her emotionally. http://www.charismanews.com...

2. Higher risk of STDs
Obviously when you have sex more than a few times with different people, you have a much higher risk of STDs. With premarital sex no one can be sure that your sweetheart hasn't been sweet with another.

3. Social Problems
Regret is a finding for many people have had premarital sex. This may lead to loss of self respect, loss of others respect, poor academic performance, depression, corruption of character and a list of social problems for both men and women. http://iosrjournals.org...

I look forward to your response.
