Sex Is For Marriage, Not For Dating!
God created marriage and His guidelines for marriage. He did it for our safety and protection because He loves us so much to do so. Sex is an intimate act between a husband and wife. Sex in itself is pure under the guidelines of God, but outside of marriage, sex is a sin.
There is no doubt that sex is for marriage. It is not meant out of wedlock for many obvious reasons.
- God’s word says for our own good.
- Single mothers raising their babies.
- Sexually transmitted diseases.
- Broken families, suffering children.
When people take things into their hands to do what pleases themselves. They disobey what God has commanded for us to do. That is why sex is for marriage, and that is the way God intended it to be. When God says don’t, He says that because He doesn’t want you to hurt yourself! ~ Bill Greguska

Sex Is For Marriage, But Can Sex Be Before Marriage?
“Sex is a momentary itch, love never lets you go.” Kingsley Amis
Hebrews 13:4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
Sex Is For Marriage
The problem is that when it is so common in our society with all the media. Taking the Bible out of the schools, teens, and others have lost the moral compass that God’s word offers. Combined with peer pressure and hormones and lust of the flesh it can be very difficult to withstand the temptation to give into immediate gratification of sex.
Sex is an extremely beautiful thing that many in our society have made it into such a dirty and lustful thing!

Is Sex Is For Marriage Or Datings Uncontrolled Pleasure?
The bottom line, the question should not be is sex only meant for marriage, rather it should be a statement, sex is only meant for marriage.
If you are dating now, the best thing to do when you find someone you care about and love is to agree that you will both wait for marriage to have sex. If you’re dating partner cannot agree to that, and then it would be best, in the long run, to put the relationship on hold until you got things resolved about this matter.
When you can both agree upon the answer to the question, “Is sex only meant for marriage?” and have integrity and self-control to keep your commitment to God, yourself and your partner, and then your future will look much brighter.

I Didn’t Wait For Marriage, But God Still Blessed Me With A Wonderful Loving Daughter! ~ Bill Greguska
Remember that our God is a God of second and third chances, although consequences are involved. I pray that you will consider treating sex in the way God intended it, waiting until after marriage. Then you can seek God’s help, to help you raise your child in your healthy marriage relationship. In my case back in 1981, like many other young people, I didn’t wait to get married before having a child. Even though I didn’t respect sex as God designed it, God blessed me with a wonderful daughter named Sherry. She has been in my life ever since she was in grade school. By God’s grace, both Sherry and I had a strong desire to be a part of each other’s lives.
What was broken God put back together
She now has grown up and has two children of her own (my grandchildren). Often this is not how things work out in the end, but a relationship and heartaches that are a part of not waiting for marriage to have a child. I thank God that he has blessed both Sherry and me to have rekindled our father-daughter relationship that was physically missing for about 12 years. Unfortunately, it does not always work out good the way it did like for Sherry and myself. I would have to say that we defied the odds, but it would have been much easier doing it God’s way but life sometimes doesn’t always work out that way.
God loves us and wants the best for us
All I know is that I am thankful that God is a God of second and third chances and God has shown his love for Sherry and me by allowing me to be her father and Sherry to be my daughter after missing her younger years, even though it was hard knowing that I had a child but did not spend time with her until she was about 12 years old. I do remember holding her one time in my arm when she was less than a year old which my only memory of her. Sherry’s only memory of me was a MATC identification card that her mom had of mine. It was not until Sherry has a burning desire to meet me when she was about 12 years old that we finally connected and have been together ever since. ~ Bill Greguska
