10 Benefits of Remaining a Virgin till Marriage by Nancy Hanna

With so many sex movies and sexual images all around, girls are under pressure from their boyfriends to have sex. They can no longer wait till marriage. Are you pressed to have sex before you marry?  Here are 10 benefits of waiting till you marry to have sex.

1. Sex is a powerful force

It that can destroy you if it is not used properly. Like atomic power, sex is the most powerful creative force given to man. When atomic power is used correctly it can create boundless energy; when it is used in the wrong way it destroys life. Sex is the same kind of powerful force. Sex is a gift from God to give us the greatest pleasure, to help in creating a deep companionship with one’s spouse, and for the procreation of the next generation. But if you play with this powerful force outside the bounds of marriage, it destroys you and those close to you.

2. Sexual activity arrests psychological, social, and academic development.

Studies show that when young people engage in premarital sex, their academic performance declines and their social relationships with family and friends deteriorate. This is because adolescents are too immature to deal with the explosive sex drive and it tends to dominate their life.

3. Feeling of guilt

The majority of women cannot enjoy sex outside of the bonds of marriage. The development of a fulfilling sex life needs the security and peace of the marriage bond. Premarital sex usually takes place sneaking around in hidden places dealing with the fear of being caught, the fear of pregnancy and feelings of guilt. All these (worrisome) factors undermine pleasure in premarital sex, most especially for women.

4. Precious gift

Virginity is to be given to the most important person in your life, the person you committed yourself to stay with forever in marriage. Your virginity is the most precious thing you have to give to your spouse. Once you lose it, nothing in the world can bring it back. Don’t lose something so precious in a thoughtless way.

5. High risk of contracting a disease

Those who engage in premarital sex run a high risk of contracting one of the many venereal diseases rampant today, as well as losing their fertility. Not just AIDS, but other common disfiguring diseases like herpes have no cure.

6. Some venereal diseases have no symptoms and no cure.

So don’t bank on seeing tale-tale signs that might warn you. Many couples discover many years later that they became infertile because of these diseases. Infertility experts estimate that 80% of today’s infertility is due to venereal diseases contracted before they married.

7. Waiting gives 100% gaurantee

The best and only method that guarantees 100% against AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases is to wait for marriage to have sex and maintain fidelity in your marriage.

8. Premarital sex breaks the 10 Commandments given by God.

The 10 Commandments are given to man by God to make man happy. They are not outdated and they are not restrictive. If we follow these laws, we can create happy and prosperous lives. If we don’t follow them, we will pay a heavy price in divorce, disease, abortions, illegitimate children and loneliness. Modern men make a big mistake when they think that they can break these eternal laws and not suffer consequences.

9. Premarital sex runs the risk of conceiving illegitimate children.

Numerous scientific studies show that the children of single mothers suffer psychologically and are less successful socially and academically than children from intact families. Above all, children need both their father and their mother. It is wrong to risk having children who will never have their father’s love, protection and care.

10. If you date and you don’t have sex, you can forget about that relationship when you stop dating.

But if you have sex with those you date and then break up, the nature of sexual involvement creates strong, often unpleasant memories for your whole life. Every relationship you break up where you had intimate relations is like a mini-divorce. The psychological difficulties of these mini-divorces damages your character. Later, when you are married and go to bed with your beloved spouse, these unpleasant memories will accompany you.

True love waits. If a boy or girl truly loves you, they will want the best for you. They will not want you to suffer fear of disease, unwanted pregnancy, and the psychological difficulties of premarital sex. They will want to experience love with you only in the very best place of all – the love nest of marriage.

But do the benefits come when those of us who are saving sex for marriage marry a non-virgin?

12 04 2021

I don’t think so. I was a virgin who married a non-virgin and it is still affecting me 15 years later. Therapy, medication and having a family haven’t helped. I really hope my kids don’t have to go through this.

27 03 2022

What she the right person for you? Did you ask God if she was the right person?

Did you cry to God to intervene? Did your non-virgin partner really showed any sign of genuine repentance?

Please do not get me wrong with these questions. Prayer works and once you did your part to remain a virgin until marriage, you must challenge God based on His word. He will surely give you a perfect sexual life in your marriage.

No science can debunk what the Lord has said regarding marriage and sexual immorality.
Premarital sex is ungodly. We must be led in choosing our partners because sex is of God and He will surely link us to the right partners so far as compatibility is concerned.

I personally know a couple who never had premarital sex. They are happily married and Christ is in the marriage. Nothing is impossible for Him.

I disagree with what you said if you refrain from sex and it doesn’t work out you can just forget it. I broke up never had sex and it hurt like hell to leave him because we emotional bonding. I will remember him for ad long as I live . I am 99 percent certain he will too. And I dont want to remember him because it is painful… you underestimate the power of emotional bonding

22 09 2019

Dear Carla, I am sorry for what happened to you, you are right, break up hurts, but sex won’t make it any less painful, rather much more so

20 07 2018

Thanks for writing in Oyetope gift, thank God you have a better knowledge of this issue, so no one can deceive (in order to take advantage of you) you anymore. Share this knowledge with your family and friends, send it to them so that they too can know and not be deceived.

21 01 2019

Never give up your virginity oyetope gift, when i found this article i was happy to know that people still waited and as a 22 year old virgin i am glad that i am still going strong. For this i have a purpose so when i meet my future wife i can share with her a gift only i can give her.

21 01 2019

Dont ever give up something that you cant ever get back, if he continues to pressure you or tries to do something to hurt you then its a sign he only wants you to sleep with him. You can get a lot of things in this life, a virginity is something you can’t get back. God created us to have one so we can give it to our spouse, so don’t waste it.

21 01 2019

Don’t ever give up something that is important to you. You only get one virginity in life so you should save it for your spouse

I am facing this sex challenges
due to the place i live
we are getting seduced by these girls of nowadays
but i stay Strong and i thank God I’m Overcoming them

Hi, Akinyemi, thanks for writing in. No doubt you have read scripture passage where Eve seduced Adam. Women have been seducing men right from the beginning. Thus it’s not an excuse. You have to resist. If not you should not blame Adam for falling to Eve and bringing unspeakable suffering on earth. Experienced people resist temptation by guarding their eyes. What you can control is what you look at. Even if a girl chooses to go naked (shameless) you still have the power not to look at her if you choose. So guard your eyes. See but don’t look. A man can see an indecently clad woman pass and leave it there. Another man can see the same woman, but looks i.e taking the details of her nakedness. More important, do not stay alone with a girl in a place where things can happen. You are more likely to fall into temptation when you are alone with a girl where no one can see. Finally, don’t exchange jokes or anything sexual in nature.
