Not gonna happen.
No, but it is the government's job to regulate corrupting phenomenon, in the duty of benefiting society as a whole and strengthening 'family ties'. I would say that pre-marital sex is inherently perverted. It does grave injury to the dignity of its participants, since each one becomes an object of base pleasure and illicit's a lack of commitment. It's a dangerous illusion which makes it more difficult to form dignified romantic and later on, family relationships.
imo, though. Like I say, i'm more interested in other opinions
I'm pretty hardcore religious, and I am definitely against it.
However, most religious people know that the 'cultural phenomenon' is so far engrained into society that it truly would mess up the world to retract it.
I wish that our world was not the way that it is, but I'm realistic enough to know that it won't change soon.
At the end of it though, everyone is entitled to their choice, regardless of who agrees or disagrees with them.
Personally, I've been propositioned before which I turned down. Primarily because of my faith, but also because, when I get married, I want to be able to say to my wife that I waited for her.
Because I think that losing my virginity before-hand would be paramount to robbery.
But, again, only my personal opinion.
Not everyone gets married. My parents have been together since highschool an had three kids and brought them up very well (imo). They decided when they were like 40 to tie the knot for fun.
You can be in a serious, comitted relationship without getting married and matrimony is a piece of paper and ceremony (the other stuff eg vows can be done without marriage) and it has roots in a religion that many do not follow. I thought this was mightily obvious but hey...
I agree completely, and in addition you cannot stereotype something that is so subjective...."each one becomes an object of base pleasure and illicit's a lack of commitment."
That's a pretty fucked up generalisation. Having sex before marriage doesn't mean that everbody doing it doesn't commit to the relationship.
Pre-marital sex is NOT the same as casual sex, let alone non-commitment and sleeping around.
and my question is directed to them, why is it so crucial to keep the idea of marriage alive?I absolutely do not support the idea under any circumstances. This thread is created for those who do support the idea to put forward a reasonable argument for this hypothetical proposed policy.
