This is a highly controversial topic, one that is very important but most people shy away from. What is your take on sex before marriage? Is it one to avoid or something we just can’t do without.
Forgive my bad manners, I didn’t even introduce this column; this is Elcrema’s ‘Love special’ and this is our very first topic; we would be bringing hot, debatable but highly interesting topics on love and relationship. Love special would be up only on Sundays, you can call it our Sunday Love special. Feel free to join in our debates; your opinion just might be saving someone’s relationship.
I’m Shawn and I’m doing this debate with Neo (I’m sure you know her by now, that’s if you are a regular Elcrema magazine reader). Like most people, she feels sex before marriage is wrong and for some funny reasons I don’t agree with her. Well, this is her take on the matter.
This has never been a good thing from time immemorial. Sex before marriage is the ‘abnormal’ that have taken over the normal way of doing things. ‘Sex’ the way God intended it is not adhered by men and women in our societies; this is the case of ‘wolf in sheep’ clothing’. I earnestly stand against it. I remember when I was in my semi-late teens and wasn’t well informed about ‘sex’ I went ahead and made the biggest mistakes of my life and wished I had known better not to indulge in it. I usually blame parents for dodging that very serious part of life from their sons and daughters before they get out of hand. A mother especially should educate (Sex education) her children more on the dangers and risks one might face- teenage pregnancy, STDs, HIV and AIDS, etc.
I usually hear some guys say they ‘must taste first’ before anything concerning settling down. They just keep tasting different girls until they taste poison to their bodies. When they become over-sexed, they begin to have infertility issues, low sperm count, and they blame it on whomever.
The ladies are not left out. They go ahead to have sex with several guys, forgetting that they are like receptors and anything can just build up inside and cause great damage to their womb and fallopian tubes.
My point here is, if anyone can wait until they are ready to marry, there would be fewer problems in one’s life. If you have tasted before, stop before you fall headlong into the ditch of problems. My stand is, because God hates it, I strongly kick against sex before marriage and it is the trick of the devil to further pervert our society. Illicit sex before marriage is everywhere and enticing, but your ability to hold yourself makes you stronger and healthier person.
Well, that’s what the beautiful Miss Neo had to say about this topic and I think she’s right but there is a but…read on…click below to continue
