Sex, before marriage, is a gateway to ensure that you and your spouse will maintain a long and healthy relationship. Everyone knows that sex is an important part of marriage. Yes, there is more to marriage than intercourse but it does play a major role. Sex before marriage can help you find your sexual identity, sexual chemistry, and sexual issues.

Your virginity is an important part of you and you can never gain it back after it is taken. Waiting until marriage allows you to guard your purity and not give it away to someone who doesn't deserve it. Also, sex should be special, not casual. you lose some of the pleasure that comes with sex when you give your body to people who aren't worthy of it, and when you do find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you will not treasure your intimate moments with them as much as you could have if you had waited.

Sex is a very natural thing, as marriage is not. Animals have intercourse and kids without any commitment to the other. Intercourse for people, especially in today's society, can bring people closer together. As long as it is consensual between two people who have knowledge on how to be safe and know the possible consequences, it can be fun and a natural way to explore your body. Many marriages experience issues with sex because one is not being satisfied as much as they wish. Having sex before marriage can give you practice and knowledge when it comes to it. Waiting until marriage to find out that the sex between you and your partner is not as pleasurable as you'd hoped can instantly cause problems in the relationship. Faking it during sex in marriage can lead to a relationship without trust, communication and overall happiness.

Con

When you wait until you are married, it usually eliminates the idea of unpleasurable sex because you have become so connected and in love with that person, that so many other things overlook that aspect of the relationship.
Also, you are usually very young if you are having sex before you are married, maybe even high school. When you are that young you are less likely to find a loyal and trustworthy person to have a sexual relationship with, and those relationships almost always end with sex and then the relationship ending. After the relationship has ended you then have a corrupt relationship with that person but you are still confined with them 5 days a week for 8 hours a day. This can be uncomfortable because they know you and your body more than anyone and will usually take that information to their advantage.
