When God tells us not to do something in His word, it’s not because it’s only a sin but because of the consequences it has on us. We need to understand that anything God tells us not to do or engage in is always for our own benefit. Don’t be surprise to hear stories and reasons trying to justify why one needs to engage in sex before marriage. First, you have to know that there are a lot of anti-God people around who don’t want people do honor God in their lives.
Many Christians have fallen victims to these kind of human-demonic reasons why it’s okay or normal for one to engage in premarital sex. But one thing I tell Christian singles is that; their relationship should first honor God, represent Christ relationship with the church and reflect their faith to the world. And you know, it’s impossible for you to do any of the above when you are actively engaging in premarital sex. When your relationship is characterized by sex it’s no more representing Christ relationship with the church but rather representing the devil’s relationship with the world.
Let’s explore some of the negative impacts premarital sex has on one’s relationship and future marriage.
1. It breaks the foundation of trust in the relationship
Most couples struggle with trust issues after they have engaged in premarital sex. Every relationship or marriage that is experiencing trust issues is likely to have their foundation built on premarital sex. It breaks the trust rule and gives the couples the impression that if their spouses can give themselves to them when they are not married to them, then the possibility of giving themselves to others is very high.
2. The relationship is never the same after premarital sex – it never becomes better, it rather becomes bitter
Most beautiful relationships that turn ugly usually have premarital sex destroying its beauty. Most times when you interview dating couples who are having miserable relationships, they will tell you that it wasn’t the way they started their relationship. They will tell you how wonderful and beautiful they started their relationship but as soon as they started engaging in premarital sex their relationship were never the same again
3. It creates false understanding and definition of love
Most people involved in premarital sex have different understanding of love. Most of these people define love as sex and sex as love which is very false and wrong. As a result of this they are not able to live with each other based on choice but rather on feelings which later lead to a disastrous relationship or marriage. In a healthy relationship couples don’t define love as sex or sex as love but rather a positive decision to treat each other with respect, dignity and kindness.
PREMARITAL SEX CAN DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND FUTURE MARRIAGE
