Issue 1: Premarital Sex

All religions of the world do not permit pre-marital, extra-marital or non-marital sex. Prohibition of pre-marital sex is necessary to encourage people to get married and stay married as well as strengthening the marriage. Sexual desire must be related to love that is deep and a person ought to have sex with only one person each time.

Meaning: Pre-marital sex:

Pre marital sex is a term which refers to voluntary sexual intercourse between persons not married to each other.

Values and moral standards
The values and moral standards, which were endorsed in the past years, are now ridiculed and ignored by many. Teaching sexual purity before and after marriage is no longer held before young people as a law of God nor even as an ideal goal to strive for. The so called sexual freedom is flaunted among teenagers and adults. Those who expect and encourage young people to remain virgins until marriage are ridiculed. Religions’ Views

Most major religions forbid premarital sex
In Christianity, …
God’s law is plain:- “Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body; but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.”

Here, marriage gives attention to the preservation of trust. Risk contracting sexually transmitted disease

Females are particularly vulnerable to a host of problems related to premarital sex. In fact, the threat of STDs (as well as HIV) is higher for females than for males. If a young girl becomes pregnant, she places herself and her unborn child at further risk. Why? Because a young girl’s body may not have developed to the point of being able to handle childbirth safely. Even if a teen mother escapes severe health consequences, she must still face the serious responsibilities that parenthood brings. Many girls find that fending for themselves and for a newborn infant is far more difficult than they had imagined.
