The thought that one should be celibate until marriage to someone of the opposite sex, and that the marriage should last for an eternity, seems to many to be foolhardy at best. Some cultures expect that you should enter into marriage with significant amounts of experience in the area of intimacy. There are at least seventeen reasons why intimacy prior to marriage should be avoided. Below are the top five reasons.
First, intimacy with someone who is not in love with you causes your body to produce dangerous chemicals that are designed to block the interaction of the two body fluids. The body essentially sets up a defense mechanism. If forced to do so repeatedly, fatigue sets in, and begins to negatively affect your immune system.
Second, sleeping with someone who does not live with you causes the ether in your body to become discolored because your ether mixes with theirs while you are asleep. When they leave, they not only take with them some of your purity, but also, they send you the ether of their subsequent bedfellows and intimate partners for as long as you both are alive. They also send you the spirit of their sexually transmitted diseases, which further corrupts the color of your ether.
Third, being in a relationship with someone who does not treasure the relationship causes you to become hardened to nuanced communications, and hinders your commitment to being in a giving relationship. You also become hardened to nuances in general.
Fourth, being in a non-intimate but sexual relationship is attempting to generate an emotional result with only half of the necessary elements. You become emotionally confused and respond inappropriately in future encounters. You also stop the natural flow of emotional responses, and you become stymied in your capacity to respond.
Fifth, you become incapable of fully trusting your future spouse in the area of sexuality. Submission becomes difficult for the woman, and care and compassion becomes difficult for the man.
