What Does the Bible Say About Intimacy Before Marriage?

The Bible is very clear that there should be no sexual relations before marriage. There are no exceptions anywhere in the Bible, and therefore, even if a man and a woman are engaged to be married, it is a sin for them to have premarital sex. The Bible gives no subsidy nor is there any tolerance for any sex at any time before your marriage. If he does not, the wrath of God will fall on both of them and no one will be exempt from guilt if there is sexual intercourse before a couple is legally united before God in a legal marriage.

That is God's intention and it is one of the most serious sins that exist when even a committed partner has sexual relations before marriage. God tells us in the Bible that sexual immorality is any sexual activity that occurs outside of marriage. Using sound biblical principles, couples can develop their friendship, be supportive partners in good times and in bad times, and create a healthy and satisfying sex life. The Song of Songs in the Bible reminds us that sex is strictly for marriage.
