So much has been said about maintaining one’s virginity until after marriage, with some people of the opinion that it’s ‘overrated’, and not really a true measure of responsibility in people. Well, while I do agree that you can’t always tell how responsible an individual is just by checking their virginity status, I disagree that it’s actually overrated.
Apart from the fact that it’s likely to save you the many ills you could be exposed to throughout premarital sex (protected and unprotected), saving one’s virginity until marriage has other benefits that deserve to be celebrated.
Cheating is one of the problems faced by marriages today, and more than half the time, it causes divorce. If you take a very close look at divorces, you’ll also find out that infidelity and cheating are a leading cause. The only reason why anyone would have intimate relations outside of their marriage is because they’re dissatisfied with the sex in their marriage. This obviously is because there’s a basis for comparison. When they think about the many sexual experiences they had with other people, and how different they were from the present, they feel unhappy. Now all this could be avoided if there were no prior experiences of sex with other people.
When two people get married as virgins, they’ll rarely have issues in marriage that relate to cheating and sexual dissatisfaction, and that’s because there wouldn’t be any basis for comparison. There’s no way I’d want ‘something better’ if ‘good’ is all I know. It ensures peace of mind and total satisfaction with one’s sex life in marriage.
Don’t let anyone deceive you into losing your virginity in the name of gaining early sexual experience. While it may seem great in the beginning, eventually, it will not because it would make it very difficult for you to find a ‘decent enough’ partner in the long run. Keep your virginity. Avoid premarital sex, and wait until the right time for you to have sex. Studies have continued to show that couples who got married as virgins are usually the happiest with their sex life than those who don’t.
