Are we really talking about sex before marriage? And what’s the big deal, anyway? Friends, today, we are going there. We are talking about a subject that is highly controversial and highly opinionated. I will share my opinions about why I believe sex is best reserved for marriage, but I will also share some research, and all of this will be from a non-faith-based perspective. 

We often discuss married sex on this podcast; it's just a part of marriage, nothing to be ashamed of. But today, we're talking about seven reasons why you need to nix sex before marriage. And while this episode provides a non-religious perspective, I am not ashamed of my Christian faith. I do however serve people from various backgrounds, and I think it's important to have conversations that are not solely from a religious perspective.
