1. You really don’t know if the person your having sex with is the “One.”
It’s pretty common nowadays for people to have multiple partners before they get married. This undoubtedly can cause doubt and future problems down the road.
The average person today has 2-3 partners (minimum) before marriage which means when you have sex with someone you’re really creating the potential exchange of sexually transmitted diseases with 4-6 other people (exponential).
Not only do you put yourself at risk for sexually transmitted diseases but the idea of this can’t be all that appealing anymore can it?
3. Sex creates such a strong, emotional response that it often causes misconstrued feelings that lead to irrational decisions.
Basically, you might ‘hook up’ with someone and think that everything is great for awhile until the emotions subside and you realize that you guys have absolutely nothing in common.
What’s worse is you see people leaving marriages to have a one night ‘fling,’ only to lose their entire marriage, children, and reputation. It happens all too often.
4. Sex can lead to unwanted pregnancies which can make life much, much harder later on.
Too many times I see see teenage girls walk into the clinic totally unprepared for the life she has to face. Their is no easy way out, abortion often leads to psychological problems later on and adoption still involves a lot of paperwork and of course, the entire 9 months of pregnancy (economic costs, stress, increased responsibility, missed youth).
The frontal lobe of the brain isn’t fully developed until age 25. Why is this important? The frontal lobe is also referred to as the “Executive function” because its involved in decision making, solving problems, and controlling purposeful behaviors.
Thats why young people are bound to make poor choices when it comes to sex leading to this problem. Instead, enjoy your youth, grow and mature as a person, and save it for that special person.
5. Sex does not mean I love you.
Example, a guy says he loves you so much and sleeps with you until a couple months later he has an affair with another woman.
True love is demonstrated through patience and self-control. Giving into sex before marriage is always the easy way out. However, when you save yourself for that one special person you are showing to them that you really care about them and are willing to do anything for that other person.
That is an act of true love.
